As I was driving home from tonight's basketball game and listening to the post-game show (Dawgs beat Virginia Tech 67-66 with a pretty darn good second half of play), Head Coach Dennis Felton promised significant improvement from the team by the time they play Wofford.
That's 11 days from now, due to a break for finals.
Having not learned my lesson during previous years, this gives me hope for the season. And I say we hold him to his promise. Because the team I saw tonight, with just a little work, could climb right into the middle echelon of conference mediocrity.
And I say that in all seriousness and with a sense of optimism.
Some of the 350 people attending these games deserve it.
