Response to Get over yourself!!
UNC Greensboro, W&M), and Northwestern are all solid programs that have been to the NCAA tournament. Belmont???
"In a game like soccer, you are going to have some close games (that perhaps shouldn't be close) and lose some games you shouldn't lose." Yes, within your conference. Within your relative peer group.
Belmont???? It's like having USA basketball go to OT with India.
"Correct me if I am wrong but that Elite Eight team you are referring to lost to Denver and barely beat UAB."
Belmont is not a peer to Denver or UAB, the latter of which has been in the NCAA tournament several times. Besides, the reference is not to a single year but to a body of work. A program that has been to the NCAA tournament year after year and been ranked in the top 20 several of the past 10 years should NEVER (barring unavailability of their starting lineup) play a close game with a Belmont. NEVER.
It's like having Newcastle go to OT with Bristol..
