I certainly wouldn't call the path to MSG easy Paul. Winning in Colorado Springs is about as difficult a thing to do as there is in this field. If we make it to next Monday, that game will be tall task to get a W.

I didn't say it was "easy." I said it was the easiest possible.

And when you compare our region to the East, North and South brackets, I think ours is dramatically easier.

That doesn't make it easy overall..just relatively speaking. It could be much worse.

Just ask Bama.

Well, at least we got a home game to start out. From what I read at the Fresno Scout board, their starters play almost the entire game so, hopefully, we can wear them down.

I don't like our chances against anybody on the road.
