    This day is downright horrific.
  3. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    This is what I was afraid of. These guys get better throughout they year. Incredible coach. If committee deems us having to beat them to dance we will have to overcome being a 4 1/2 point dog or so.

  5. Watkins out

    I do recall Garner getting dinged up in the game now that I think about it. Didn't seem like a big deal at the time.
  6. Watkins out

    Um it is being discussed right here in this thread.
  7. Watkins out

    Not to mention rim protection
  8. Watkins out

    It is ridiculous how much the Big Ten is undervalued and many leagues overvalued in the rpi which they are using for quadrants for some reason. I heard(Bilas I think) that the coaches pushed for this quadrant method, but not for RPI to be used to create them. They cannot stand the RPI either.
  9. Okay, our RPI if we simply had not played Marist, Stetson, and Delaware St would be 41 right now instead of 60. I am curious if some spreadsheet expert would be able to do it like NCAA hockey with minimal effort. Where games you won that hurt your RPI are removed. I would like to get this data to the selection folks somehow. Granted, other teams will be minimally impacted by these types of games, but ours has to be extreme. We didn't even schedule Marist. I just want to make sure the committee gets a more clear picture of this nonsense. There is no way in hell winning three games should hurt our RPI by 19 spots.
  10. The top eight in the BIG

    Can someone give me a brief rundown of our NCAA hopes? Thanks.
  11. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Just ran the RPI wizard and eliminated Marist, Stetson, and Delaware St. from the schedule and we would be 41 instead of 61 if it is correct. That is mind boggling.
  12. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    down to 61 in RPI after damn Stetson game and N. Texas one point loss.
  13. Penn St at Michigan game

    He would have to be seriously compromised if playing though I would think.
  14. Penn St at Michigan game

    Interesting, I had a chipped kneecap right before senior year of high school. They said it wouldn’t get worse if you can handle pain but surgery you are looking at 7 weeks or so. Didn’t want to miss football so grinders through two a days limping badly it hurt so bad. Decided to have it done so I could be back for basketball at least. Turns out I was back playing linebacker in three weeks but couldn’t cut well enough to play qb. If I just did it immediately I may have been back for opener. Point is if break is similar to chip I would try to play through it if I were him as surgeory takes him out for year anyway. Probably all depends on if he can make it worse or not.
  15. Penn St at Michigan game

    I have to think Watkins makes about a five point difference due to the matchups. No team in the league besides us would i consider him to be so important
