TitanCentral.com's Key's to Winning: With a little luck and a different shot clock operator (yeah, just like Jay Leno, I can never let it die) the Titans could easily be 3-0. But they are 0-3. Long Beach State will be favored but if the two teams play to their capabilities I like our chances. If we continue to press and stay with the game plan then we win. If the players start thinking they know more than the coaches, we are in big trouble. No one prepares for a game better than Titan head coach Donny Daniels, and based on the fans of LBS, no one prepares worse for games than 49er head coach Wayne "Hey, Baker was a good coach" Morgan.
If it's close at the end, Titans prevail.
