If Cleveland State...

Unread postby Arbus » Sat Dec 04, 2010 11:23 pm

If Cleveland State wins by 23 and starts the season 10-0 but nobody notices did it really happen?

Vikes are the first team in the nation to ten wins. Time to start supporting this team Cleveland.

Go Vikes!

Sucks that the game wasn't on tonight. Waters has built a helluva program. Thats a pretty good team they dismantled tonight ... on the road.

Can you say at-large berth?

They've been winning me some money on centsports.

Their schedule makes it hard to build up more hype.

No more Friday home games the rest of the season. The Saturday home games all start at 2:00 pm. What's up with that? Need to change those to night games. I think more people would be willing to go to a Sat. game starting at 7 as opposed to 2.

The game could be seen on the Horizon League website. Pretty sure all games are shown online for the Vikings.

And forget at large berth. I agree with Norris Cole, lets knock off Butler and win this fucking division. This is as deep as a CSU team as I have ever seen. And next year they are adding even more.

I think they try to stay away from scheduling against the Cavs. Games in the past started at 7 and nobody showed up. Then they tried 5, and nobody showed up. Now they're giving 2pm a shot.

Last year's schedule had more named opponents on it but only West Virginia was at home (Kentucky, Virginia, Ohio State and Kansas State on the road).

This year is different with South Florida at home and West Virginia on the road but mid major games at Akron and home vs. Kent, Iona, St. Bonnies and Robert Morris are all very attractive matchups that nobody really paid attention to.

Hopefully the 10-0 start and some national publicity will start to get the attention of the locals.

^I don't think the Cavs are much competition anymore. Cleveland loves winning teams. Even if it is a college team. Only a matter of time before Cavs tickets are worth less than Tribe tickets.

I agree but when the schedule was being made that wasn't so clear yet.

I'd love nothing more than to see Cleveland get behind this team. I tell anybody that will listen that this team represents Cleveland the way we all want to be represented. They're good kids, they play D, they play hard, they're tough, etc. Anybody that I've ever taken to a game has been hooked.

This is the year that we have a chance to upend Butler for the number one seed and the right to host the Horizon League tournament right here in Cleveland. If that happens, look out. I believe the city will finally turn out to support Waters and the Vikings.

I have some thoughts more thoughts posted on the front page from earlier today.

Vikes win again. Another tough win over a solid mid major, this time on the road over Sam Houston State.

Norris Cole scored "only" 19.

Next week we take our 12-0 record to West Virginia. Will probably still be just on the outside of the top 25 going in, but if we win we'll be ranked for sure.

Exciting time to be a Viking fan!

Speaking of not being on TV, what's going on with STO Swerb? Only one game on TV this year and it was from the MAC coverage. Those idiots had Reghi and his partner wearing Akron shirts for the broadcast, and his partner was a former CSU player.

No excuse for them to back the MAC and not CSU, especially since the Horizon League dominates the MAC in head-to-head matchups (and CSU is 2-0 this year).

The WVU game is being broadcast in West Virginia and as of right now, STO hasn't picked it up. Stupid. They picked up a local feed of the Syracuse game a couple years back and we all know how that turned out.

STO has a contract sogned with the MAC, and another signed with UA for additional games.

Does CSU have a contract? With all the dead air in STO and FSO, and all the local stations, there's gotta be something wrong if CSU had no TV time. I miss watching them.
