Our coach's passive aggression is pure savagery... and I love it. Muller reps the Valley harder than the Valley reps itself.

We're lucky to have him.

Re: Big Dance Bracket

I think it was hilarious that 19-15 Alabama wasn't even a bubble team and got a 9 seed. Were they the only 15-loss team riding the trail blazed by Vandy last year? I'm still anxiously awaiting the first 7-11 - or even 6-12 at this point - P6 at-large who tripped over their own feet for two months, ...

Re: Rumors starting already

If the quadrants ever cost a P5 a bid in favor of a mid-major, the metric will be recalibrated to ensure extra slack for the big boys. This year's selection process contained even more fun shenanigans for committee because they also had to find a convenient way to exclude all three FBI scandal-impli...

Sure you can put a price on playing in the CBI and CIT. It is not an inexpensive proposition.
We have an athletic department that cannot afford to buy a football opponent that counts; how can we afford a CBI berth?

Re: MVC Awards

Keyshawn is 5th in scoring in the conference, 8th in assists, 4th in 3pt %, 2nd in 3 pointers made, has the 5th best assist to TO ratio, and 12th in min played, and that's not good enough to even land on the third team? I hope this is bulletin board for Key. Agree. Major chip on the shoulder time! ...

Re: ISU @ Loyola 2/24

This year had potential to be more than a "rebuild" - and still does, thanks to finally (mostly) healthy roster and avoiding Thursday. Add Copeland and Romine to what we already have and we probably slot in as a strong 2-seed. No one else - save for maybe SIU - can match what went wrong availability...

Re: Arch madness seeding idea.

With all this talk about the 4 - 5 game vs the 3 - 6 game, and how many think the late, late show game is a distinct disadvantage and the 3 seed may be worse than the 4 or 5, I had this idea... Let the teams choose their seed. Do a conference call of all the AD's on the last regular season Saturday...

Re: Arch Madness Update

Trey, I've never really thought about it. I would assume there is more benefit in playing in the first game Saturday. More rest and get more time to scout the opposing team. However, at this point, everyone has player everyone twice and you probably don't need to scout much. I guess there is someth...

Good teams and programs don't hope to not play certain teams. Come on guys you have to beat whoever you are matched up with and chances are you will run into the team you don't "want to play" at some point so stop worrying about it!!!

Re: MVC Game 17

I'd rather be in the 6th seed vs the fourth. That way we can avoid Loyola until the finals (if we play well). Coach said last night that Phil was on track to be playing Weds, Bruniga too. So hopefully we will be at full strength the rest of the way. We can't get killed on the boards like we did aga...

If they keep up the Big East will eventually take them. I don’t think the Big East would take a public school. However in a few years, all bets will be off on who accepts who.

Indiana State is likely going to pick up the win over SIU. Sycamores lead by 4 with 5 min to play and Pippen fouled out.
Dawgs rallied late to take it to OT. Haven't seen Murphy back since he got poked in the eye.

Re: Arch Madness Update

If the BU number is correct at 275 - then they have eclipsed the 225 mark - is this an oversight by Oren? It's a BU tradition to count phantom sales; maybe this applies to Arch Madness all-session passes, too. Or #TheMovement got off to a quick start in Valley play and Peoria folk got excited about...
