Re: Opponents thread

We were originally supposed to play St. Joe's and tentatively still supposed to play them next season. . . After a 1-14 start (their only win against Albany-which probably didn't help Will Brown's situation), the Hawks have now won 4 straight, with their A10 tourney opener againt La Salle. The stre...

Re: How will Covid-19 affect the season?

We've talked about it before, but the concept of a single site tournament is a great one. It was a great part of the Vegas 16 concept-realized about 10 years too late, because the CBI and CIT were already well-established. I'd be for four different sites for each region, with The Final Four being t...

Re: Valley Games 2020-21

I was waiting for someone to attempt this false logic. Those states are also overlapping with the BIG12 and SEC who have completed top 8 most by % as seen it the graphic. The issue is program/school/conference funding and resources to keep up with testing protocols and such. I did put the schools a...

Re: 2019

Some would say Izzo now has them playing dirty like the Pistons from the Bad Boys days. They certainly seemed to play overly physical and aggressive against the Illini when they broke Dosunmu's face. That to me is the officials fault for letting the game get way out of control. To me there is no do...

Honestly, the all-bench team probably would have challenged for 3rd/4th this year :lol:
Maybe even win it all. Those guys all have a motor and do all the little things to help a team win.

I believe you make your luck. MVC schools took Covid very serious and were successful. You also have to consider the states the teams are in and their infection rate.

I'll consider it once they take that dumb foul call where a guy is defending you and jumps and the offensive guy then jumps at you to create contact and gets the call.

Re: Pace, Defense and Mid Range Shots

For sure. It’s something to have in the arsenal to use in case of emergency. In the NBA the floater it is a must have in your arsenal. They will take the rim away from you, play your three point shot until you prove you can hit that runner/floater and make them pay. The team defenses in the NBA are...

I would have said this before the incident. I'm not so sure now. He'll have to get a VISA and that may not be such a slam dunk. This is a fair point. But there are also pro circuits stateside. Depending on what, if any charges are brought and if they impact him directly, certainly complicates his s...

Re: MVC All conference awards

Right, it doesn't count against their eligibility. They get the year regardless. But programs only get 13 scholarships total. Players on rosters this year are exempt from counting against that total-unless they change schools, in which case they count against the new school's 13. So it would not sh...

It does, you just don't hear about it. Especially in a situation where the firing school can save money if the coach finds another job right away. Nobody sends cash considerations to another school for hiring their basketball coach. No, but they can negotiate with said coach to pay a portion of wha...
