  1. I believe I read it somewhere that the WV state legislature requires the two D1 schools to play each other. Not sure the frequency or sports involved, but I don’t think WVU is doing so by choice.
  2. Muncie had some Testicle Tech players for their pick. Would’ve been cool if they mentioned the college team for Akron’s pick.
  3. I'm rooting for John Groce to succeed because I love UA and I love Zips basketball. I didn't think he was the right choice when they hired him. I don't think he's a bad coach, I just don't think he's a good coach. My fear is that we'll see a whole bunch of years of +/- 3 games of .500 ball. A bunch of 5th through 9th seeds in the MAC tournament. Maybe a good year where we get hot and win the MAC and maybe win a game in the Dance. Maybe. I don't know... I don't know if we'll have time. Next year is a very important year for John Groce to prove me and some others wrong. He will have a full and healthy roster of mostly his guys. He also has some serious leg work in recruiting because following 2019-20, we lose 7 guys (barring offseason transfers out).
  4. Remember that time we lost by 40 in the MAC quarterfinals? Pepperidge Farms remembers. I have serious doubts that this staff can create a team that is consistently above average in the MAC. I hope I'm wrong, but looking at the scholarship chart, next year is must win.
  5. My usual path to cheap/free tickets is out this year. I'm going to try and sneak away to catch this one, and I'll probably be using a lotto ticket to get bogo $20 end section seats.
  6. Zips tied the sweaters just on points off 3pt FG. 17/31 for 51 points.
  7. This was the worst performance I've seen since the VCU debacle in the Dance. I was not a fan of the hire when we brought in Groce. I fell for some of the hype, but he's proving otherwise. John Groce is not a good basketball coach. The records prove it. He was supposed to be a good recruiter. Two of his prime recruits never played a game for UA. I'm still rooting for him to change my mind because I love this school and it's teams, but next year better be big strides forward.
  8. I think Reece looks fantastic and will be a good contributor right away. But for reference sake, 247 scored Mike Bardo 0.7667.
  9. UB has barely hung on to their rankings: 25 in AP, 24 in Coaches Poll (Toledo receives one vote here also). As an illustration of the steep hill to climb for the MAC to get 2 bids in the current NCAA climate, Maryland (18-6) hopped into the poll and over UB (20-3) by beating mighty Nebraska (3-10 Big 10). Bulls may have a shot if they win out and lose a close game in the final, but I'm betting another loss and the committee finds a way to leave them out.
  10. Had this exact conversation with a friend this week. We need a sniper that's out there getting floor burns.
  11. Oh yeah, no doubt. But my kids are 3 and 5, I guess I'm just in the mood to whine at prices because I doubt they make it through more than one half. Next year, family pack is the way to go. And thanks ZW for the offer!
  12. Tossed around taking the family to the game tonight so I took a look gozips.com for tickets. Was pleasantly surprised to see they added a single game family pack (4 tickets) at a discounted rate (only $13.75 vs $15, but still). I added a family pack to my cart and went to checkout. $87.00. I'll watch on ESPN+.
