Big 1 pt win vs. Mizzou. As waters goes so do we still holds.
Mizzou has a 23 rpi. We have 6 quadrant 1 wins. Thats a lot I would think.
Crazy, almost gave it away in last second. If we could sniff .500 that would be nuts
Exciting ! Good mojo to win a close one.
This was posted just before the first tip-off yesterday.
Wait so after the ncaa puts bruce pearl-auburn and calipari-uk on probation and all the other teams we should make the big dance.
When’s that happening? NCAA refuses to punish AU, they figure they’re at a competitive disadvantage with Bama in-state.
Up to three dozen Division I programs could be facing NCAA violations as a result of the probe, including some perennial March Madness stalwarts, according to a report from ESPN’s Mark Schlabach. A second report went even further: “The breadth of potential NCAA rules violations uncovered is wide enough to fundamentally and indelibly alter the sport of college basketball,” wrote Yahoo’s Pete Thamel.
“This goes a lot deeper in college basketball than four corrupt assistant coaches,” one of Thamel’s sources said. “When this all comes out, Hall of Fame coaches should be scared, lottery picks won’t be eligible to play and almost half of the 16 teams the NCAA showed on its initial NCAA tournament show this weekend should worry about their appearance being vacated.”
The possible violations would be revealed via “information included in wiretap conversations from the defendants and financial records, emails and cellphone records seized from NBA agent Andy Miller,” Schlabach reported, and would “involve illegal cash payments to prospects and their families, as well as players and their families receiving tens of thousands of dollars from agents while they were still playing in college.” Thamel reported that the FBI has recordings of 4,000 telephone conversations related to its investigation.
The programs trying to “buy players,” according to one of Schlabach’s sources, were not mid-major programs trying to get to the top, but “teams that are already there.”
