    2019 24 Team FBS Playoff Sim

    Christmas Eve, Eve, Eve ThoughtZ™

    Was watching Depaul the other day and Leitao's offense had great movement. One of the voices in the back of my head said "where's the guy setting the useless screen 22 feet from the basket?"

    UNH VS. UConn game replay?

    They’re bottom third, but certainly not one of the worst. Before today their worst loss was 14 points.

    Challenge Evedything

    We can't seriously imagine that the time of day we were practicing had any role in the results of our games. It's not like were were losing because of a handful of mental errors, or because we were fatigued. Our losses had nothing to do with body clock. We were losing because we weren't...

    Wildcats' biggest loss Is fourteen (at St. John's). Don't Expect a blowout.

    Your feelings on sweaters

    I wear cardigans sometimes. They’re the perfect old man sweater for all ages.

    OT: Sports terms you can't stand/are tired of.

    “Launch angle,” too.

    Should get on the board next Sunday vs Conn College. After that, hope they can steal a couple in the NEC!

    2019 24 Team FBS Playoff Sim

    Over the past two years I've run a sim of a 24 team FBS playoff similar to the structure the FCS tournament. In 2017, the sim had Georgia winning the national championship 27-13 over Alabama. In 2018, it had LSU winning the national championship 14-10 over Alabama (Clemson, the actual national...

    Too Many Deficiencies- NIT

    I think, in a game like this, points are a variance that's hard to account for. Once we seized control of the game, which I will grant took longer than anyone would like, they never had a chance to win. That's what matters.

    Too Many Deficiencies- NIT

    St. Peter's plays hard and has D1 talent. We showed up to play "St. Peter's" and out of the gate we weren't prepared for their pace or intensity. Once we figured out the shape of the game, we seized the score and kept them out of reach because we're somewhat faster, stronger, taller, and more...

    NET Ranking for Tournament Selection

    Exactly! People love to dismiss/hate on the RPI, but it was a project of its time. Ken Pom, etc., are in part responses to the limitations of RPI. 20 years from now, if there's still an NCAA, we'll have moved onto something new.

    Gaffney took a big step forward tonight

    He’s gotta keep his head up. His body language makes it look like he gets really down on himself when he makes a bad play. Agreed, though. He was more assertive tonight.

    OT: Less vs. fewer

    This is also stupid. “To be” verbs make for functional communication.

    Kind of a mismatch — St. Peter is gonna need Some more apostles.

    Matt Brown: UConn Expected To Reach TV Deal With SNY

    That depends. What's your position on the regional location of Oklahoma?

    Transfer portal - outbound

    I'm not gonna research this, but I wonder -- how many players has RE put in the NFL in his last five seasons as a coach? In his five total seasons at Maryland?

    Proposal “Circulating” Around CFB That Would Expand Playoff To 8 Teams

    That would pretty much guarantee no such team would ever be deemed worthy. 24 teams, all conference champions get to play. It’s the easiest way to increase parity across NCAAF, which means it will never happen, lol.

    Cronin was Cincinnati. Might be their turn to wander the desert for a bit...

    Can’t we all just share in the joy of Fred Hoiberg losing?

    Proposal “Circulating” Around CFB That Would Expand Playoff To 8 Teams

    It's a TV show. 23 tournament games are more fun than 23 craptastic bowl games. You can still have the same conversation about who's "deserving" of the top 4 seeds, or the 8 first round byes, if that really matters.

    Rough night for Hurley

    Hurley is really just starting down the path we already completed with JC. In the end, we won a lot -- but Calhoun/we lost a lot of big games along the way. This has nothing to do with Indiana, obviously, but I think we have to accept that DH can't just pick up where JC left off. We're a part...

    OKC may be looking to deal as the season goes on -- wonder if Nerlens Noel can finally find his way to Boston.

    Predictions/Expectations for the rest of the season?

    I'm thinking 4th or 5th in the AAC followed by a deep run into the NIT.

    Proposal “Circulating” Around CFB That Would Expand Playoff To 8 Teams

    8 would be a good start, but 24 is where we want to be. That’s the only model where UConn has a chance of being “on the bubble” someday.

    In the sense that the generic deli meats at your local Big Y are world class, yes.

    Let’s not pretend Colorado State is making this hire because they’re chasing Alabama.
