    64 teams make the tourney plus/minus a play-in game or 2.... so not sure if that's a barometer of a very good team. good sure, and maybe very good, but not always so,
    anyway, playing 5 teams that advanced to post season play out of the 13 non con games without a big name in there is a bit underwhelming to me....

    you are not gonna get duke and kansas in your non con schedule. i am not postivive you even want it. if you can get a small conf champ thats a success.

    if you can get a liberty or belmont or saint louis, thats great. these teams are not chumps. and they will help your RPI.

    like the article mentions, they are gonna play wake or oregon st. oregon st was an elite 8 team.

    if you play in the SEC and play kentucky and tenn and bama, you dont need to go really out of your way to schedule UCLA and gonzaga. LSU wil have plenty of chances to get quality wins, wins against teams like liberty that sound shitty but actually help the SOS, and will wade will have a chance to get a high seed with that schedule.

    i would like to see the sagarin SOS of this schedule vs SEC rivals SOS.

    there is a story today in the advocate about the ncaa investigation. basically it says the NCAA doesnt do anything, is 100% faggots with no idea how to do anything but hire expensive lawyers to waste time and do nothing about nothing, but somehow take forever to do nothing about nothing with no progress on anything about anything.

    the ncaa investigates nothing, does nothing has nothing to say, then asks another group called the complicated case specialists or whatever, now these fucks have to interview 60 people, pay an army of lawyers to jerk each other off and have no answers or decisions or knowledge of anything at all for years on end.

    this special group, according to the article, has never made a decision on anything, ever.

    "The NCAA recently made changes to try to hasten the process after one of its committees found delays have been caused by the complex case unit “re-investigating” cases. The Independent Accountability Review Process hasn’t adjudicated a case since its inception"

    not one case! surely the lawyers involved have built bigger pools and upgrade to hotter mistresses in this time and all the paychecks they are cashing from the NCAA for endless nothing

    long story short another year will pass and still nothing, wade continues to slay.

    They gotta spend all that money somehow. NCAA has billions to burn.

    I hear you and agree, but I don’t see this ending well for LSU and Will. Just hope the FB team can be distanced from the fallout.

    one reason to be optimistic is that other schools have been hit with very minor punishments lately.

    the one thing i hate is that wade's contract stipulates now that a notice of whatever gets him fired immediately.

    however, i suspect wade is smarter than anyone at the NCAA and has hired lawyers that are smarter than the NCAA lawyers, and the NCAA isnt trying to get caught up in wrongful termination or whatever kind of lawsuits willy wades lawyers let them know not to fuck with.

    still, .if he does get fired i will cry because wade is the fuckin boss and i think he will make LSU hoops elite if given the chance and time.
