Re: March Madness 2018 Thread

Why is Texas in with 14 losses? 19-14 record. Texas lost to Michigan by 7 at Texas. Nebraska beat Michigan by 20 in the regular season. Nebraska lost to Kansas by 1 point. Nebraska was 13-5 in the Big Ten Season. They were 22-10 overall. If you have 14 losses you should not be in the tourney. The B...

Re: CBI/CIT

No postseason for the Braves: https://twitter.com/DaveReynolds2/status/973000814771036161 That was quick, and I’m good with that. Now let’s get some great recruits in here and shoot for a Valley championship next year! Preferably the NCAA Tournament but at the very least an NIT birth. See my post i...

Re: 2017-2018 Bracketology

Nebraska was last 4 in. In the NIT. No Valley teams in the NIT. Being the eighth ranked conference will only get you so far if you are more top heavy. They weren’t this year, and even with fewer NIT bid thieves the Valley probably did not deserve an NIT bid. Conference USA was ranked 15th but had t...

To be fair, AC has 4 non-DI wins and they have a winning record. Deservedly or not. Yeah, I said that earlier and that is enough to officially qualify for the CIT, lol. I wouldn't dismiss it.

The Big West seems to be a perfect level for him. We’ll see if they can pull out another Big West Tournament championship later thi...

Another possible NIT auto-bid clinched tonight in Conference USA?: Southern Miss 71, Middle Tennessee State 68 Not sure. Good test case for the committee as Middle Tennessee State certainly has at-large credentials. That said, if they don’t get chosen as an at-large NCAA Tournament team, that will ...

Re: CBI/CIT

I think Donte’s send-off has been more than appropriate. All things must end. I think bowing out valiantly to the champ is an admirable way to go. I agree, but this is more about giving the returning players more playing time and experience for next year. This is the perfect year to participate in ...

Re: Championship Week 2018 Thread

Loyola did their job as they did not steal an NIT bid, but Florida Gulf Coast about to clinch the fourth NIT autobid as they are getting blasted in their home court by Lipscomb. Down 30 at one point! Pretty surprising how lopsided that game is.

Re: All Illinois semifinal?

I’d be ok with that, but I’d be more ok without that. Yeah....I would prefer not! And this is why. While I don’t particularly want to see the Redbirds winning this tournament, since it’s not us, I still do want to see an Illinois team or two make it to the Big Dance. Hopefully Loyola wins this as t...

Re: All Illinois semifinal?

I think the bigger story here is that it ensures an Illinois team in the Big Dance, as there has been a total dearth of them this decade. You had Northwestern last year, and Illinois in 2013. That's it for 5 years. I am glad to see this happened, even though I can’t stand Illinois St. Lol. Hopefull...
