Hate to bring it up, but here are the facts.  We are not a very good road team in conference.  Since joining the Big East our record in conference road games in 3-6.   Yep you read that right, 3-6.  That is one road win per year.  Overall we are 9-8 in conference games.  It seems we're alot better than that, but in reality we're not.  Here is the breakdown by year:

2005  Road Games

@ Rutgers-  Win

@ Pitt-  Loss

@ Syracuse-  Win

@ UConn-  Loss

2006 Road Games

@ Cincinnati-  Loss

@ Louisville-  Loss

@ West Virginia-  Win

2007 Road Games

@ Rutgers-  Loss

@ UConn-  Loss

Why are we so bad on the road?

can't really blame it on the crowd, some of those games didn't have much crowd involvement at all, and the win at WVU had plenty of noise from the stands. (and even the Auburn game, which while not a conference game, shows that we can handle the hostile situations). i think the timing of a lot of these road games play a big factor. usually they're letdown games in one way or another

We're a different team on the road, conference or not. Always have been.

I thought that this year may be different, but in the end, it's the same old problems.

  Thanks Mr. Sunshine, for that little nugget of information.  As If I wasn't sick already.  ;)

Thats why I'm here Mutt.  I knew we were bad on the road, but I didn't know it was that bad.  I also thought our overall record would be better than 1 game over .500.  I guess that was the point of my post.  We might think we're a ton better, but we're not.

Weather.  68 and rain is a helluvalot different than 82 and sunny.

I could buy the weather argument if we didn't play so much better in the second half. Yes I recognize that the weather had let up but it was later in the day and not that cold. We've played plenty in the rain and 68 degrees even with rain is not that cold when you're out running around whether you're a florida native or not.

I do believe the weather was a big factor in the first half.

Sure on Offense we were affected but on Defense?
