3 seed Wisconsin vs 6 seed Wardle and Bradley in the NIT.

Winner would get Villanova in all likelihood.

Revealed by Crean and Wojo. Fantastic haha

We all know that if Antoine Davis would have broken the scoring record last night, it would have come with one of the biggest asterisks ever for a sports record. A great accomplishment, to be sure, but with a huge asterisk.

How much more worse will it be if Detroit actually pays $50,000 to participate in the CBI to get Davis another game? Hopefully they won't get the invite...but I suspect that they will.


Update. The CBI had conversations with the Detroit athletic director last week. They had a donor lined up to pay the $27,500 entry fee.

And then never got the invite.

That’s kind of wild. Why wouldn’t the CBI want them? The record alone would draw a few eye balls.

Are CBI games all televised?

My guess is that the Horizon League wouldn't be thrilled to have Milwaukee or Cleveland State sitting at home, while their conference mate with an overall losing record goes instead.

I thought I heard they were on Flo Sports, which is subscription/pay to watch model. Honestly, I think the view of Davis is "you had the chance to do it organically, now the only way you get there is by forcing it" and people just aren't as excited. If it was going to be on FS2 or the Ocho where people could watch, maybe they'd tune in, but no one is shelling out cash to watch a guy get a couple buckets and probably lose anyway.

I'm pleased that Detroit Mercy isn't going to be in the CBI. Antoine Davis should be proud of his college career and his accomplishments, but I'm glad he's not going to pass Maravich for the total points record.

1000%.  Regardless of how he got there or the 5 seasons asterisk, he's a heck of a scorer and had a historic career.  A sub .500 team that finished 8th in a conference thats tourney winner is a 16 see, that isn't even in the top 200 in the NET, has no business playing any sort of post season basketball.  To do so would have been a total sham.

As for Crean, Ive said it before but bears repeating even more next to Wojo, he's VERY good at TV.  Both in studio and as a color guy.  I hope he doesn't take one of these mediocre jobs he's been rumored for and sticks with TV, cause I think he can become one of the better analysts for ESPN or Fox. 

And hearing him glowingly talk about MU is great.  Even without his appearances at MU events, its clear that he left MU as an arrogant coach in his early 40s who made the F4 before he turned 40, recruited an under the radar player who became a lottery pick, and got his school a HUGE promotion in conference.  His substantial ego was visible from space.  15 years later, he's got a lot more perspective, he's much more humble, and clearly appreciates what he left.  Besides how he speaks about MU, the last 3-4 years at UGA he was way more engaging and enjoyable and real in interviews and video clips.  His interactions with the Pardon My Take guys were awesome.  He was/is far more comfortable with himself.  Thats part of the reason I also hope he stays with TV, he's a great ambassador and proponent of MU going forward.  If not TV, I'm more than enthused and very intrigued with the idea of him taking over for Scholl.

No thank you. I’ve got no issue with Crean, but Marquette is way past the point where it should be hiring people who have no prior experience for important positions. Coaching experience does not qualify someone to be AD for a high major.

Yeah it’s not a good idea at all. Outside of his enthusiasm, I can’t think of many reasons why he should be considered anyway.

Fine, let me rephrase, I’d be intrigued with him as an associate AD.  Marketing, promotion, politicking, fundraising, all skills he has in abundance.  He was better at the marketing/promotion/administrative aspect of HC than he was at actually being a coach.

And the list of major college ADs who went from coaching to associate AD and then to AD is quite long.
