It began with probation in 1995 due to Antonio Langham signing with an agent. Again probation in 2000 resulting in the loss of post season play and scholarships.
Mike Price and Dennis Francione embarrassing or abandoning us.
We remember Brodie Croyle sidelined by injuries for two years. His health restored in 2005, Tyrone Prothro and JB Closner fell away to injury as did the season.

Don't talk to us about asterisks. Don't talk to us about injuries. Don't talk to us about never.
I hope everyone will continue to bask in the glory our team has achieved and remember where we came from the past few years. All the frustration, heartbreak, and bad luck came full circle on Thursday night.
