DateQuestionAnswer
2008-05-05 12:30:00 (link to chat)Bryan, will we ever see a return to glory for Umaine in the NCAA's, or is it too difficult for any Northeast team to really put together a good program anymore?
(matthewshea from UMaine Grad)
The first regional game I ever saw was Maine in the UNC regional just a couple years back, so I'm certainly rooting for them. I always thought Curt Smith had a little Deivi Cruz in him, and it's a shame Kevin McAvoy never got back to that freshman year level. But no, it's not impossible for a Northeast team to get back to prominence -- heck, Rutgers was pretty good last year, and St. John's looks good this season. I think it takes some good roster construction and great instruction, but it's possible, yeah. (Bryan Smith)
