Moleskin: lots of discussion on the validity of the poll used to elect our basketball themed beat down. No controversy around the Kotter poll. Good mumble chatter as we relived not so glorious days of sports conditioning- names of sandbaggers and our “favorite” coaches to be withheld here, along with any of their accolades. Good work by the PAX hopefully readying ourselves for the March Madness bubble slated for Indianapolis come spring time.
