    Debate: Last Night's Bunnie Win

    respectfully Matty, i assume you werent alive when the olympic refs played the last few second over 3x in order for the soviets to win. nothing comes close to injustice in sports history imo.

    72 biggest theft in sports history.

    i totally agree. i think both hargrove and perkins are capable of replacing bess within a year or two. and that is a tall order to fill. you can go back and look, i was never more than luke warm at best over gordon. i saw the physical potential, but his actions in h.s. from quitting on his teamates at vianny to his stunts at webster led me to believe he had issues. i was hopeful an inspiring coach like ford could bring him around. obviously that wasnt possible.
  4. As of this morning, there are only teams from 12 conferences with top 40 NET rankings. Therefore 20 automatic bids will come from conferences with imo not worthy for at large bids. so taking the top 40 teams as bids plus these 20 not worthy qualifiers. that leaves 8 open bids for at large bids so the projected cutoff line is 48 for the ncaa tourney. however if a team below that line wins a conference tourney from one of the 12 top conferences, subtract one of the 8 open bids. assuming there are none of these upsets, and all the lower ranked conferences also have no upsets in their respective tourneys, the NIT cut off line would be 80. so as we speak, in the A10 VCU is clinging to an at large bid in the ncaa with their 37 ranking. davidson and dayton are clinging to NIT bids with their 72 and 75 rankings. I would think VCU is fairly safe and there now appears to be a good chance the A10 could get two bids with VCU not winning the conference tourney and getting an at large bid. Davidson is likely pretty safe for the NIT. however Dayton could use some success to get beyond the 6 possible conference tourney upsets that would put them out of the NIT. everyone else in the A10 either has to win the conference tourney to get to post season or head to panama city for spring break.

    i believe that the table does indeed control the shot clock. that's it.

    if you get there early enough, be careful you do not sit in a kahok season ticket holder's seat. you will be moved. then considering what seats might be left over by the time you get shoved out of that seat, you might end up in the nosebleed section.. those long time attendees are pretty possessive about their seats.

    actually i am pretty sure the refs control starting and stopping the clock. their whistles automatically start the clock and they have a button on a pack clipped to their belt they will press to start the clock.

    he would be a project as well. but obviously that size is something you cant teach. i'd take either one of them.

    imo, in a "feel good fanboy" thread like this, the billiken fandom should be saying, "WHO CARES".

    The Last 5 Games

    the davidson dayton game last night was quite interesting. tale of two halves. wish it would have turned out for davidson. every game to get to the top 4 is important it seems and a dayton loss there would have been nice for our chances to catch them. not as likely we catch davidson imo as their remaining games seem very winable for davidson. that said, win four of the five remaining i think we are good. top four is important to me. my flight for the conference tourney gets in late morning on the Thursday. hate to be out before i even get there. 😆

    imo from watching the videos i've seen, he wouldnt even match agbeko next year. he would be more productionwise equal to a bryce husak. just a big imposing piece in the middle of the floor. he is just too slow and considering his width, seems kind of soft to me. i dont even recall in any of the videos seeing him dunk. definitely wouldnt be a french bully which when one sees him would assume that is what he will bring. again, not saying he cant turn into that. just wont be immediate. but with that height, and size, definitely worth a scholarship.

    from the video i have watched, i agree. he has a big body, but he is a long way from being an inside force at the A10 level imo. this would definitely be a project. now with 4 scholarships yet to name, we have room for such a project and i would think the ceiling is high enough it is well worth it, but those thinking the next coming of shaq is guaranteed, might want to hold up on that.

    Harbison imo just glides around the floor what seems effortlessly yet still beats everyone up and down the floor. Stylewise she reminds me of David Burns

    this is a totally unacceptable mistake from the AD. someone needs to be spoken to about doing a little checking before making such a statement.

    pretty sure in our evans, mccall, jett and loe days we were over 10k more than once. are they possibly talking about just this season? no way they could screw that up otherwise?

    kudos just for posting one of the greatest monty python scenes ever. thanks for the laugh even though it has nothing to do with the billikens.

    I thought the women's team looked good today. The improvement since I saw them in early January is substantial. The Harbison girl is very impressive. And while flowers can definitely use some strength training she is very athletic and plays hard. I really enjoyed the game.
  19. 3 star we get it. You cant wait for your very small mediocre shooting point guard to get here. For your sanity sake, i hope he gets to play. Meanwhile how about easing up on our current billikens that being asked to play a style that doesnt suit their makeup but they are trying their hardest?

    The Bills over GW by 8

    if davidson wins the regular season but loses in the tourney they get an auto bid to the NIT if they dont get an at large bid to the ncaa.

    please detail your experience so we can behold your words. thanks

    The NIT

    i still say we have no chance for an NIT bid. its ncaa via the conference tourney or nothing.
  23. billiken_roy

    The NIT

    Doubting its possible. Simple math says we wont get ranked high enough to get an invite. 68 ncaa teams 32 nit teams. Thats 100 there. But keep in mind there are about 22 conferences that dont deserve (not top 68 teams) an ncaa spots that will be granted one a yone by winning their Conference tourney and any of those conferences that their regular season conference champ got beat in the tourney and didnt get an at large bid will get an NIT invite. So between those two happenings will likely take NIT invites to at least under 80 imo. We will never get to that. We are ncaa tourney by winning the A10 tourney or nothing.

    OT: Midtown Development

    that is good stuff Bills_06 thanks! imo the second best movie speech of all time. only jack Nicholson's court room speech in "a few good men" is better imo.
