The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- I can get used to this! Let’s face it, the Flyer Faithful are becoming just a tad bit spoiled, given that the Red and Blue are making their fourth consecutive trip to the Large Hoedown. And what’s not to like? The UD Pride Message Board is bustling with activity; there is ongoing semi-friendly banter between our fans and those of our worthy opponents; there is Flyer press coverage galore and UD Arena is currently serving as the undisputed epicenter of the college basketball universe during the First Four, even if it does cost $20 to park there.

Is it Friday night yet?
