Re: Bracketology

Jerry Palm article from yesterday, shows of P5 schools, 75% of them doing better in NET than RPI. What a shocker!! It's almost like it's by design :think: Looks as though Elgin and the MVC office need to get busy and crack another code. Of course, then the P5 simply will come up with yet another ne...

Re: Muller seeks to restore 'toughness, effort'

This program is obviously in need of more than just players who work harder and are tougher. There are needs for good shooters who take good shots, rebounders who block out, an offense that works for the best shot available, a true point guard to run such an offense, and a higher basketball IQ. In o...

Re: Barry Hinson out at SIU

Hinson deserves kudos for going to bat for the Valley on multiple occasions, including his calling out of Gary Williams at Maryland. He also deserves a "coach's purple heart" type of medal in recognition of the infamous shafting his SMSU Bears received from the NCAA tournament selection committee.

Re: Birds Picked 5th in Preseason Poll

I'd take us 3rd because lines win football games and I think our OLine will be one of the best in FCS. Why is NDSU not in the Big 12 yet? Anyone? Possible partial answer: For the time being, it seems members of the Big 12 have discovered they like splitting post-season appearance payouts 10 ways in...

Re: Could Adding an Engineering Program help Redbird Basketball?

Establishing a marketable major like engineering will enhance the viability of an ISU education and could attract more students. A question will be which, or how many, of the various engineering disciplines might be offered. Realistic planning should recognize the type of academic programs that are...

Re: Jay Bilas Tweet

What really doesn't make sense is the idea that mid-major coaches would avoid such games out of fear of adding two or three more losses to their record. Considering how everyone knows the only way to get an at-large berth out of the selection committee these days, short of having a record of somethi...

Re: MVC Article on Selection Process and Scheduling

The "big boys" don't want the selection process to be changed; they have worked too hard for too long to structure it to their advantage. It has been said before by others that the NCAA office is unlikely to do anything to significantly address the issue for fear the power conferences will somehow t...

Re: Coach is at it again!

Bilas is banking on the assumption that a fair number of the viewers of his segments are semi-casual fans who will take the babblings of a former ACC player as being "expert" and beyond debate. Nice to see a Bone Scholar take him behind the woodshed.

Re: Rumors starting already

Observation: Because of the Selection Committee's obsession with mediocre teams from P5 conferences, it is possible (even likely) that a Final Four team would not have been in the tournament field if they had lost in the championship game of its conference tournament on March 4th.
