Re: Non-Con Released

Sets up well. With an easy roadie at Valpo in between homies against MSU and Loyola, the conference title race should go through us, with the big matchups at our place late. Annoyingly, both Missouri St games are Wednesday games, would've thought at least 1 would be picked up by ESPN. Heck, who know...

Re: 2019-20 Illini MBK Schedule released

What tourney are they doing? Without looking it up, seems like they created their own tourney to host between 4 other also-rans? It's clear they don't really care about an at-large bid, because with no solid tourney and with Arizona probably down, I don't see any non-con games that move the needle. ...

Re: Valley schedules for 2019-20

Loyola was still the wrong choice, and I will fight anyone that disagrees. Never play the results-oriented game.

When it comes to schedules I'll refer to TheAsianSensation's take. Where is he when it matters? I do not want to do the analysis when we have a very good one right here on this forum. :study
My take: at least it's not last year. Good, but I can't call it great.

Re: Non-Con Released

All and all, a good improvement on last year. Lesson learned; our schedule last year definitely cost us at least 1 seed line, and quite probably 1 win. But it's going to be a long, long road to hoe to get to the 12 line with this SoS. I see us mired around 200-225. Our schedule didn't necessarily c...

Re: Non-Con Released

I'm admittedly very nervous about the sked, because there's no access to a quad 1 game outside of @Memphis. Our non-resume might hinge on beating 2 bottom-feeders in big conferences at a neutral site, and that won't help our seed in March. I really hope I'm wrong about that tourney, because I see th...

Re: TAS and Squirrel Re-Construct DI

This is very interesting, with ramifications in scheduling, setting aside Bellarmine for a second. This puts the Horizon at 11. 20 game double round robin if they want it. Going to 20 conference games seems like the trend du jour these days, from the big boys and the little guys, with the mid-majors...

Re: 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

Everything I've seen suggests FIFA has a MLB-like revenue sharing system. Not familiar with all the ins and outs, but the men's world cup makes a gazillion dollars. The US is responsible for very little of that revenue, relatively speaking. Still, when FIFA makes their payouts, the US still gets a c...
