While we understand the UNO administrations logic for the move, we empathize with the coach and his players. They still have to play a D-I schedule with a bunch of cast-offs, walk-ons and transfers who don't need the scholarships.
The Privateers will still play a somewhat full schedule and have, the past couple of years been a serious threat in the Sun-Belt conference. We aren't sure that will happen again.
Coach Pasternack, we are cheering for your guys. We hope you have a successful season and maybe even make a post-season tournament. Best of luck to you this year.
