I thought I saw that UConn's basketball budget is twice the size of OSU basketball

Yeah, I don't pay too much attention to those figures because I have no idea what an apples to apples comparison look like. For instance, does UConn's include any rent it pays when playing in Hartford? How are they allocating academic support costs?

Flew in to MKE for this one. Disappointed with the low-key crowd and so many empty seats. Also did not like the tacky “Make Noise” prompts on the Jumbotron nor the smarmy “events” during time outs. Thought I was in Providence at times.

But the FSF is a great venue and it was a solid win. So I guess it’s not to complain, especially since 50 years later we have a Lucas in the scoring column.

??? This is the standard for every arena, everywhere.

There is a really interesting case happening in the AAC. You have South Florida 21-5 ranked #25, you have FAU 21-7, make last years final four, unranked.

South Florida Net of 100
FAU Net of 58.

There is a good chance both teams win out bringing the records to 24-5 and 24-7 respectively. Neither net is even close to worthy of making the tournament. One team will more than likely be left out if they do not win the conference tournament. So you are either leaving out a team that could push top 20 ranking or leave out a team that made last years final four with basically the same team. Yes, I know last years team means nothing but it does make this scenario very interesting.
AP rankings no matta

Who knew that a side effect of horse paste was to cause you to put quote marks around random words?

The full study will be out any day now

Concern about the BE conference future would not be the only reason he leaves.  Ohio State can offer him more resources - a higher salary, NIL, etc. A Big Ten school these days is always going to have that in abundance v. a BE school.

But the other thing is that Hurley may just be using this as leverage. He is the defending national championship coach with the #1 team in the country. And some MASSIVE jobs are open.  Yes he just signed an extension in the off-season, but having his agent field calls may simply be the next negotiating ploy.

Or maybe the leverage isn't about him, but about getting the donor base to pony up more for NIL.

Well, we  unfortunately see where your cnn,msnbc, cbs, nbc, abc nytimes gack has got us…your weekend at Bernie’s hero has put us in a perpetual swirly.  At least fox called that one a bad idea before it started.  You smart guys have helped to “fundamentally” completely F’ this country up in 3 years

8.5 out of 10

It's really obvious when you look just at straight-up records.  The gap between those three and the rest of the field is WIDE.

24-3 (Houston)
25-3 (Uconn)
25-3 (Purdue)
21-6 (literally every team from 4 to 11)
20-8 (Creighton)

Any normal year 6 losses would never have you in contention for a 1 seed unless you played in the top ranked conferecnce similar to the 2011 Big East. But yes there is quite a dropp off. Doesn't mean those 3 are safe tho come tournament time.
