  1. I hope St. Mary can challenge Arizona since they are only 5 pt underdogs, but who knows...3 of their 4 losses came at the hands of Gonzaga, but that is the only elite team SMC has played, and they got beat by an average of 17 points.
  2. Gonzaga is bitch-slapping Northwestern around.
  3. I hope St. Mary's is able to make a good run the tournament, I'd like a good two headed monster in the WCC.
  4. Don't believe everything your uncle tells you.
  5. MTSU weathered the storm and pulled it out. Every year a 12 seed embarrasses 5 seed and I'm glad that a mid-major is able to stick a thumb in the eye of a big conference.
  6. yeah...hopefully MTSU girds their loins appropriately during the TO break and finishes this off.
  7. I agree, but I think we are all aware of the big conference arrogance and hubris towards the little sisters of the poor.
  8. MTSU is taking Minnesota out behind the woodshed so far. Minnesota seems taken aback by how well MTSU is playing.
  9. Hutchison was a beast for Boise State, otherwise it would have been ugly. BSU needed this win to help break the post season curse they've had since the 2010-2011 season.
  10. Fewer and fewer FBS schools will schedule NDSU and they know it, which is forcing a change in their scheduling practices. http://www.inforum.com/sports/4110187-ndsu-switches-non-conference-philosophy-top-25-fcs-programs
  11. Glad to see Hawaii keep fighting. No shame in putting up 30+ on a PAC12 team.
  12. You don't wanna know how the dummy is able to sit upright
  13. I enjoy the Aussie commentator. Love those accents.
  14. This. As for SDSU, they need to get over their tendency to lose early in the season, especially OOC. If they beat Cal, it will be a good indicator that they are making strides to being a complete team.
  15. Here's another angle of the Hawaii defense
  16. Yeah, he got his chair kicked out from under him.
  17. So there truly is a gal for every fella
  18. Here are the stadium capacities for all the relevant teams. I am not sure how to do an archival/historical search of academic levels for universities at the time of invite. If anyone knows a credible source, I am open to enlightenment.
  19. I am not so sure. The history of realignment says otherwise. 2005: USF, Louisville, and Cincy were added to the Big East from CUSA. And fairly, only Louisville of this group currently resides in a Power conference, but this is just to show precedent. 2010: Utah joins the PAC12 from MWC. 2012: TCU joins BIg12 from MWC/BE. Of course TCU was previously part of a power conference in the SWC. But again, they were a mid-major for 16 years before getting a bid. 2012: Louisville joins the ACC from the AAC. These are just the modern examples of mid-majors joining Power conferences. And with BYU, UCONN and Cincy in the mix, it will just catalyze more G5 teams to play the P5 game in hopes of an invite. The MWC gets largely ignored because all P5 conferences, other than the PAC12, of course, are looking east, where the people are.
  20. We all know why institutions play this game; for a chance to get hold of the golden goose. That is not why players play per se, but good facilities are necessary to get the best players, everyone knows that, otherwise it wouldn't happen. The choice to enter the fray, ultimately, is up to donors, the state, and its tax payers to decide if this game is worth subsidizing.
