Go Ospreys!!

Some Space Beagle Notes readers might remember my declaration during the 2005-2006 college basketball season that I decided to become a fan of the University of North Florida Ospreys (UNF - - second only to my beloved Iowa State University Cyclones). The reason for this declaration was the pre-season "Sagarin College Men's Basketball Ratings" published in USA Today:

Mr. Sagarin's mathematical model named the Ospreys' men's basketball team is the #336 ranked NCAA Division One team -- the dead last, bottom of the rankings -- in the country so since we love underdogs in the USA I adopted the Ospreys as my team. Thus began a correspondence with the team's head coach -- Matt Kilcullen -- who is a very personable gentleman.

It has been several months since I have updated readers on the team's performance for the 2006-2007 season so here is their current status --- the Ospreys have 2 wins and 24 losses overall and a 0 and 15 record in their conference this season. This performance leaves the Ospreys ranked #335 in the most recent Sagarin ratings.

March Madness will have to wait,
