Wofford takes on UC Santa Barbara in the opening round on Thursday. If they win, they'll face national #11 seed San Diego.

Longest travel of the 1st round..... drum roll.... the Wofford Terriers. Some things never change.

Any chance of an internet broadcast, or even a television one on some obscure channel that I might get on DirecTV?

UCSB will have the game on line. You can get to it from their web site. According to their coach, they are happy to get us in the first round. I am sure Coach Paulson will have our players read that statement several times. Go dogs!

Question-

Do terriers like flour or corn tortillas?

Terriers are gaucho-eaters, not vegetarians. :D

The long trip to Montana worked out OK, didn't it?

Looking at the bracket, however, it looks like ALL the games are geographically matched: except one. :evil:

I gotta be honest, I was surprised to see you guys get matched wayyyyy out in Sb. However, I feel that your RPI had something to do with it. Don't get me wrong, Im not overly confident playing you guy's. UCSB is a team that can beat any team in the country and lose to any team in the country. I think that your boy's will get a kick out of playing at Harder Stadium. Good luck to you guys!
Recommendations while visiting UCSB-
1. Ask your team to visit Del Playa the night before the game.
2. They should eat a monster burrito from "free birds" before the match.
3. Visit FT after the match "only if you win can you go to FT." The girls are kinda picky and like winners.


My prediction:
Gaucho's- 3
"squish faced terrier's" - 1
Attendance 5489

True to form, Coach Polson will get them mentally ready; if we bring the A game, we have a good chance. UCSB appears to be lower rated than NC State, whom we played very close.

NC State may have received a higher seed, but was ranked far behind UCSB in every poll.

It's going to be a little bit different playing in front of 5,000 plus at UCSB in a playoff atmosphere than playing in front of 300 in North Carolina. Best of luck, you are going to need it.
Prediction
UCSB 4
Wofford 1

Blanked 2-0 is playing close?!? And before you all get your panties in a bunch, I read the box score. I know their second goal was on a clearing mistake in the last minute and that you guys outshot them. But like a preceding Gaucho said, UCSB was ranked above NC St. in every poll, and your team will never have seen an environment like that at Harder Stadium.

I'll go ahead and predict another "close" one for you guys.
