Re: 2016-17 Bracketology

We won't be a 1 seed unless we are among the first 4 out according to the NCAA selection committee. We're currently not that close to the cut line no matter what some say. If we get to the A10T final and lose, then I think we might be there.....of course I'd rather be one of the last 4 in...... If I...

Re: Who is the starting PG for the A10 tourney?

JD should start the rest of this season....JG probably won't be 100%......anyway it gives Dowtin more PT under pressure which will only help him more down the road.....

66, yeah if they don't lose in the FF of this year's NCAA's......200 is a very real possibility.

This year's team isn't close to last year's....but their top competition [if you can call it that] isn't as strong as last's year's either.

Re: 2016-2017 RPI watch

Looking at the remaining schedules of the teams that are currently 9-5 and 8-6, we had better go no worse than 3-1 to get the double bye.

So Tuesday's game against LaSalle is very big from that standpoint.

In other words, to have a snowball's chance......

And the NIT is no lock if we go 1-3.......

A team with this many athletes should be running much more often....Dan was asked about that a while ago.....and he prefers to slow it down.....

Again, I think it has to do with the fact that they aren't a good passing team. Dowtin's the best passer, but he needs help.

Like you said, either this team has zero BB IQ or the coach is in way over his head.

It think it's both. A very large helping of both.
