dafuq?

Why?

That La Tech vs Temple game is important for the league. Dunno whether Temple is any good this year, but we need to win these types of opportunities. Hopefully La Tech’s performance against Southern was of the look ahead variety.

Probably just taking some time to gel. I think La Tech will be fine.

Miami defeats Florida. Hello, RPI booster.

Had to look that one up – Methodist school founded in 1886 and located in northeast Georgia just south of North Carolina state line. Anyway, from their Wiki page:

Young Harris's sports teams are called the Mountain Lions. The school currently is transitioning from the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) at the Division II level. [b]The college originally applied to the NCAA in 2010, but the application was rejected.[/b][13] The school re-applied in 2011 and received acceptance into the three year process to become a full member. As of the 2011-12 academic year, Young Harris was in the first year of candidacy-membership.[14] The college could receive full NCAA membership for the 2014-2015 school year.[14]
Gotta love C-USA OOC scheduling!
