They finished dead last in the Paradise Jam (like we did 2 years ago), have a nice win @ FSU, but have some puzzling blowout losses @ Denver and vs UIC in said Paradise Jam. They did play New Mexico tough for about 30 minutes (which I saw in person).
What's strange is they don't have a player averaging double digits... mostly because they only average 58.3 PPG. Travis Smith is their leading scorer (the one I remember seeing in Albuquerque) and probably their biggest threat offensively. Bud Thomas leads the team in assists, but is AUful from the field. I mean... like a former Bama PG AUful on the offensive end. No one else of note to write about.
If there was a team tailored for us to curbstomp it is them, but our offensive woes might make this a miserable game to watch... along the lines of 58-50. This might be compared to watching the New Orleans Bowl where the only possible reasons you watch are:
1) You have money on the game
2) You're a fan of either team
Note- they lost @ UGA (another bad team) 58-49 earlier in the week.
- 40% FG
