Re: TAS and Squirrel Re-Construct DI

Assuming that the remaining AAC and B12 schools consolidate to create as good of a football conference as possible, does anyone think that will push Wichita State out? Might not be room for a basketball only program. Plus Kansas State will be a leftover B12 school and might like to see WSU ousted i...

Re: TAS and Squirrel Re-Construct DI

Kansas' chances at the B1G aren't zero - the basketball property has value. Whether it's enough, I dunno. But that is a clear television asset, basically 20 broadcasts a year of programming. I just don't see how the B1G can overcome the ACC contracts to add any of those programs. Unless they make a...

Re: TAS and Squirrel Re-Construct DI

You can tell this is going to happen because we didn't hear anything until now. Typically you leak realignment info and rumors as leverage for negotiations with your current conference. If you actually want to leave, you limit exposure of that info as long as possible. That Kansas news is their way ...

Re: TAS and Squirrel Re-Construct DI

The first thing that needs to be resolved is the Oklahoma state legislature, who at last check was trying to force OU and OSU to be bound together. I think we need an answer on that before anything else. The next question is whether the Pac-12 and B1G are open to expansion. Once the Pac-12 loses OU/...

Rut Roh. That could be the domino that deprecates the Big12 as we know it. Does this potentially open a door for a Power FCS program to make the leap to FBS? i.e. North Dakota State, Sam Houston State, UNI, or ISU... I think it more likely accelerates the move to a closed, 64-team division. This, a...

Re: Reynolds to chair D1 Men's Basketball Committee in 2022-23

People, people, people. The committee selects teams based on the selection guidelines given to them by the NCAA. They follow the guidelines closely. It's the guidelines, not the committees, that are the problem. The committee is being asked to paint within the lines, when it's the lines that need th...

Re: UT Arlington

If you pair them with the right travel partner, it'd be fine. Not sure if UALR is good enough for those purposes. From a demographics perspective, it makes sense.

The NCAA should be watching this story develop like a hawk. The script these owners are trying to run right now is the exact same script the P5 schools will want to run in the future on the mid-majors.

Re: NCAA Tournament

All UCLA's run proves is that bubble teams are capable of winning the tournament, which means teams that are capable of making deep runs miss the tournament every year. Therefore, the burden on the selection committee must shift from best resume to most deserving. Since there are not enough spots av...

Re: March Madness 2021 Thread

96 teams work in a tournament if you give them to the right 96 teams. If you allow the power conferences to vacuum up those bids, it's a disaster. If you give them to the right schools it works perfectly.

I think you’d be wrong.
Well maybe not now because they'd need the help :joker

Ok I'm done bashing Rutgers for now
