Re: 2018-19 Schedule

Fwiw, Bradley posted this on the scheduling board: Bradley is looking for a Top 75 RPI or best available opponent to start a H/H series in Peoria IL. We will be considered a Quadrant 1 game. Early November dates and late December available for dates. Closest matches: Wright State is looking to star...

Guys it’s an April fools “joke”. It’s not accurate. That guy doesn’t have sources anything. He’s like Roy Schmidt’s long lost son.
Yep. To clarify though, Loyola hosting Nevada is legit. That should be a heck of a game!

Re: NCAA Tournament Hogwarts Madness

Well, still a great run for Loyola this year. They did the Valley proud! Honestly, even if they won tonight, I don’t think they would’ve had much of a chance against Villanova the way they are playing. I think Michigan will need a miracle to beat them as well. But regardless, great season for Loyola...

Re: NCAA Tournament Hogwarts Madness

The reporter on the Loyola homer channel just said that they played in the Mountain Valley Conference..... and he’s a Loyola grad. I’m out at a bar watching the game, but it’s loud and I didn’t hear this. What Einstein said this?! :? He chimes in here and there, I can’t remember his name but if the...

Do NOT kid yourselves! More evidence that shows the media elite’s disdain for mid-majors in the NCAA Tournament. What a bum this guy is! :?

Loyola looking real good so far! I say if they win tonight, I hope they win the national championship. How great would that look for the Valley! And how bad would that look for a certain team and coach that no longer plays in this conference! Lol! :lol:

Ramblers now 91% to win, in-game probability up 10 with 9:47 to go
Midway through the second half Michigan was 107% chance to win over A&M.


Lol
They actually calculate this over 100%? Lol. :roll:

There are many examples over the years of St. Mary's turning down games. Hard to feel much sympathy for them in these situations. Oh great. Yeah, my opinion about them has definitely changed after hearing this. Why would they turn down those games when it’s so hard for other like minded mid-majors ...

For what it's worth Pete, the NIT is not mandated and is still invitation based. Georgia declined their invitation earlier today.

Good decision those tournaments are a bad joke, I wish all teams would do the same so they would go away.
We will see later tonight. If the CIT bracket only consists of 12 teams and the CBI consists of 8 teams, that would be a good indication that they may be on their last legs, lol. :)
