    PS The good guys won. Just a little perspective of what some of us Wesleyan fans have experienced. What we are experiencing now is painful. Winning a regional at USI would help ease the pain.

    Southwest Mo. , Ashland and Kentucky Wesleyan. Kentucky Wesleyan won the final to make 3 of 4 starting in 1966. Notice the crowd in Evansville for Ashland Ohio against SWMS. It was very special. Wesleyan beat Oglethorpe, American International and Southwest. I don't remember the rest of the field.

    Yes they are. Watching alot of games at the Eagles it is amazing how many emty seats there are in D1. We have the 2nd longest home winning streak in the country and only draw 1000.

    I was just wondering if ole Gramps recruited John Worth too, and convince him away from the Purple Aces.

    Now, I cannot verify this to be a fact - John Worth supposedly left UE because there was too much public pressure being placed on him as a player. He was not comfortable there. He made the right decision to play at Wesleyan, because he and his team was front and center in a photo on the Louisville Courier Journal's front page in 1987.

    No but I was close to pulling Kenny Perry from my high school South Spencer. Kenny was a Parade All American, 6' 11 that choose Evansville over Indiana and UCLA. We came in fourth and no one ever knew. He used to hang out at the Fraternity his Sr. year.

    I will never forget that 1987 National Championship team. There was absolutely no media coverage for that game where I lived in Kentucky then. I had to wait until the next day and drive to the county seat in hopes that I could get the box score, and a photo of the team was on the CJ front page. I taped it to the wall and just stared at it for a year. JB Brown and John Worth were the two big names for me on that team. I gave JB a ride to practice at the Sportscenter one day in my Le Car. He could barely fit in it, but he was desperate to not be late because he knew Coach Pollio had zero tolerance for tardiness. That was a really smart team.
