  1. We have something in common! I also gave a kid a bloody nose in Cub Scouts. But they didn't kick me out.

    What's the elevation of Laramie?

    Elevation in Laramie? Not as high as in Colorado the last few years.

    No - that stuff is fine. It's all the rabid CSU fans in Denver that make it unpleasant.

    Still waiting on an answer.
  5. Well, when you put it that way...

    Which conferences would you have included as power conferences during that time period? Big Eight? Southwest? WAC? Pac-8/10? Southeastern?
  7. Not very often. Saint Mary's shared the regular season title with Gonzaga in 2011 and 2016. Saint Mary's won both the outright regular season and the tournament championship in 2012. Saint Mary's won the tournament championship in 2010. San Diego won the tournament championship in 2008 and 2003. In 2000 and 2002, Pepperdine shared the regular season title with Gonzaga.

    Doing the same www.sports-reference.com analysis for the West Coast Conference from 1999-2018: Highest rated season was 2015 at 7. Lowest was 2001 at 14. Mean rating of 11.1, median of 11. Significantly lower rated than any conference Louisville has been in since at least its Metro days.

    Because I'm an idiot, I just went back and looked at where the Metro conference ranked in each year Louisville was a member. I used the SRS from www.sports-reference.com for the years in question because it was easy to compile. Here's a description of the rating system: and a link to explain the system for those who care about it more than I do: https://www.pro-football-reference.com/blog/index4837.html?p=37 From the seasons ending in 1976-1995, the Metro finished as high as 4 (1983) and as low as 10 (1981, 1990). Excel calculated its mean rating as 7.15 and its median as 7.5. For the 1996-2005 seasons, Louisville was in Conference USA. During that time, CUSA finished as high as 6 (1996, 1999, 2000) and as low as 8 (1997, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2005) with a mean rating of 7.2 and a median rating of 7.5. From 2006-2013, Louisville was a member of the Big East. Surprisingly, the Big East never topped the ratings during those seasons, topping out at 2 (2006, 2011, 2013), going as low as 5 (2007), with a mean and median rating of 3. Louisville spent one season in the American (2014). The conference was rated 7th that season. Since the 2015 season, Louisville has been in the ACC. It's been rated 2 (2015-2017) and 3 (2018) with a mean of 2.25 and a median of 2. The Big East and ACC are/were definitely better/stronger basketball conferences than were the Metro or CUSA. However, remembering that conferences tended to be much smaller then than now, with more good teams spread out among the conferences, I see no problem with happy's assertion that the Metro was a power conference in its day.
  10. I think they take a step or two back from this last season. Correct. Yes, they have seemed to reload with Aussie talent a lot - guys that have experience playing with each other. Yip. Here's an excerpt from what I wrote about them here a while ago:

    "They're"? When did I become plural? And what makes you think I'm a BYU fan?
  13. I would have, but didn't want to risk the results.

    You are right to feel insulted. To fully define the value you bring to the board would have to go out at least 5 figures. Sadly, all the digits are to the right of the decimal.
