My personal opinion is that Wofford thinks that since they are such a small school that it is ok to be "close" in games. I feel that Wofford sometimes uses our lack of funding, scholarships, size, etc as a cruch to fall back on when we lose instead of truely wanting to make a change. And I do feel that it is on alumni as well to give money back when they can to help the program out.

I agree 100 percent there. While I think it is great to overcome obstacles and succeed, it is another thing altogether to use it as a way to justify mediocrity. Money and more scholarships would definitely help, but I have a deep feeling that an adequately funded program would produce results similar to what we see today and have seen since we moved to D1.

I disagree 100 percent.

Maybe I was a bit over the top with my 100% disagreement. Maybe it's more like 80%. I just feel that with a properly funded team we will see much better results.

The fact that I question how much better we would be with better funding is based on history. I don't know the numbers, but I think it is a safe assumption that the basketball team receives more money and scholarships than it did 10 years ago. However, the measurable results, wins and loses, has remained the same.

I do not think it is ALL money. I think much of it has to do with attitude. And I do not feel, at least when I was there and from what I have heard, that the proper attitude is there to have a truely successful season.
