The players were just about as interested as the fans. There was a lot of disappointment running through the team and fans by getting so close to NCAA. The fans showed their interest by less than 5k and players had about the same emotion. Played a team excited to be here and we simply were not. Not making excuses, just is what it is. When you are a bubble team that is that close to making it in, this tournament is pointless. Nothing good can come out of it. Nobody remembers winning the thing and most don't care, everybody will remember when a loss occurs though. Tis tournament is built for teams like mercer who didn't get their automatic bid and they can have a second season. At least they saved us the misery of traveling across the country to play a byu team who rarely loses at home.
