  1. I think the Toledo Rockets are on a downward spiral to Hell much more than this thread is.
  2. Buffalo and the two teams that beat them are in the semis along with CMU. BG got lucky drawing Ball State. NIU Montgomery was on the hot seat last year. He spent many years toiling in DeKalb. They kept him and he's making a run...on the back of German. NIU tanked when German got suspended but are now back where they were. Was good to see Zips beating NIU and BG at home. Maybe Groce should take the team on the road for the first 6 games.
  3. True dat. Needs to earn that big paycheck.
  4. Nice watching a decent officiating crew for the BG/BSU game
  5. Toledo...wow...wasted season. PCCC...sucks...no Jaylens next year
  6. Or just find some tough, uninjured centers.
  7. I watched the CMU game at home and noticed that the Chipps could throw a pass to their center in the paint and he wouldn't drop the ball. FWIW Riak is battling a couple bad injuries. Remember he screwed up his shoulder in Cayman. Groce has some tough decisions to make with Sayles, Riak, and Eman. Having 3 physically compromised centers on the team isn't going to get the Zips too far.
  8. Let us blame whomever we want. The season is over in 20 minutes. Lighten up.
  9. Only 17 points down!! That's a miracle.
  10. Zips will be playing 4 guys by the end of this.
  11. Well my keys to the game are holding true. Bad shooting % and Bull owning the foul line.
  12. CBI or CIT? I say call it a year
  13. Ok. Zips going to Plan B grind it out work the shot clock down. Hanging on by gossamer threads at this point
  14. Torturous to watch here at Q. Nothing working
  15. And let me add the obvious, if the 3s aren't falling, Akron will play harder on defense and when they do that they hit the wall during those final few minutes.
  16. NWAkron's keys to the game: Big upsets require a high shooting % by the underdog. UMBC shot over 50% when they beat #1 Virginia last year. Also, free throws. Zips have to make almost all of theirs and limit Bulls trips to the line. In the game at Akron, UB had a lot more trips to the line than Akron even before the garbage final minutes. Transition: Buffalo will grab the missed 3s and do quick damage. Here in lies the big problem. LCJ and Daniel will have the green light to shoot the 3. If they start off cold, Buffalo will build a big lead quickly. If those two start off hot, then there's a chance.
  17. I'm happy for the lost souls on Kitten Attack...they are having a good time speculating.
  18. There's so much luck involved, and it has to be incredibly tough on the families...never knowing when you could be uprooted. Makes me think that Oats is going to stay put.
  19. A few #1 seeds toppled yesterday including the #1 team in the country. Just never know...
  20. Groce and Company got the Zips to the Q with a bad team and an average team (although French was citing some rankings last night that say the Zips are above average). That's an excellent building block for next year and beyond.
  21. Agree. If the guys are spent and tired, then call it a day. If they want to keep playing...then go for it.
  22. Didn't he start the other two Buffalo threads?
