Re: 2026 World Cup

I refuse to believe Morocco is an actual thing that's going to happen.

I predict FIFA gives Australia emergency 2022 rights (I'd argue they got more bleeped by FIFA than the US in the last voting; they had to share a confederation with Qatar so it was masked).

Conference USA looking to revamp their scheduling of conference games: http://www.herald-dispatch.com/sports/marshall_sports/chuck-landon-c-usa-making-big-moves-in-hoops/article_dad0483a-c987-5b60-9041-bfc87418accd.html I'm guessing this is TAS's reaction to this news: https://media.giphy.com/media...

TAS, how do you feel about the tournament expanding from 68 to 72 teams?: http://www.newsobserver.com/sports/arti ... 23724.html
72 is better than 68; 64 is better than 72.

Re: 2018-19 Schedule

TAS - most amazing, how? Marquee power? Because that schedule didn't really perform. Six of the 12 teams had losing records -- including Iowa and Iowa State. Three of the 12 made the NCAA: Vandy (4 seed), Michigan State (5) and Butler (7). VCU at 24-8 arguably got snubbed. The strongest non-con sch...

Re: Paying NCAA Athletes

If you have a birthday, do you prefer $100 in cash or $100 in gift cards? The NCAA as set up is like gift cards. The players do get "paid", but in a specific way (scholarships) instead of cold hard cash. Another tangential point: the NCAA needs to do a better job of pointing out the student in stude...

Re: 2018-19 Schedule

St Mary's, Buffalo, Tulsa, and Charleston are no-brainers in that they should provide resume value and they won't be dead weight in the worst-case scenarios. I would take them in the order Buffalo, Tulsa, St Mary's, Charleston. I'd rather not absorb the SoS penalties that come with a Horizon or A-Fu...

Re: Former Braves at season's end

Thanks, TAS, for ^^^. I get the concept you've outlined. But, theoretically at least, wouldn't Lunardi get that, too, and so therefore adjust his brackets to account for the median-ization you describe, and pick 3-4 mids that would be likely dancers? If he can't ID who those should be, get help fro...

Re: Former Braves at season's end

Of course it's way too early for Lunardi's Bracketology to be meaningful in any detailed ways, but still, why not cherry pick some good and bad news out of it: The good * Notably missing: Wichita State. Shocking! The bad * Only 1 again from MVC, predicted reasonably as Loyola, and no mids in the 16...

Re: Jerry Palm podcast

Always beware the law of unintended consequences. That was part of Palm's point about the push to a new metric to replace the RPI (or an overhauled RPI, if you prefer). Changes don't always produce the preferred result. TAS is right. The formula -- whatever that might be -- doesn't need to change s...

Yes, and I'd go a step further - this year's Nebraska would get consideration over last year's...

Finally, an ally against the silly idea everyone thinks is a good idea. You cannot put in a rule against teams that are sub-.500 in conference, for several reasons: - like he said, it's only 60% of a schedule, and the NCAA has come out and said they don't differentiate between a conference game and ...

I'm guessing the Zags and WCC are reasonably confident they are split-safe. As should we, as TAS alluded to in another thread-with next year's double-dip in the FF units/shares, the league should mandate spending standards to ensure we separate from all other leagues outside the top 8 in DI.
