I bought lederhosen while I was in Munich for Oktoberfest, so I'll probably just wear the traditional Oktoberfest costume. I don't feel like buying anything else.

Do you have a cousin or something that was on the Mercer team? Or are you a dookie fan?


Jesus, man. This is embarrassing just to read. That was an embarrassing loss and any dookie with half a brain would admit to that. It's arguably the biggest upset in college hoops history and EASILY one of the biggest losses EVER in March. Dookies been on the wrong end of those twice now the past three years. 

Nah, I'm not a Duke fan.


It is embarrassing to retards that automatically assume a team is vastly superior because of the name on their jersey. It's why I hate Walmart fans that don't know jack poo about more than 10-15 teams in the country so very much.


There are A LOT of really solid basketball teams in the country that fall outside the top 25 and outside the major conferences that have the capability of beating big opponents, they just don't always get that opportunity to showcase it until the NCAA tournament.


The one and done rule has hurt major college teams by adding uncertainty and inconsistency, while teams that don't rely on one and dones can put together teams that have major contributors playing together for 3-4 years.

Mike said almost immediately after their embarrassing, humbling loss to Mercer that the offense is going run through Oakafor this season. We shall see. I think it's only a matter of time before Mike has the #1 recruit in the country setting screens so Quinn Cook can chuck threes.

Losing to a well coached team loaded with seniors should never be considered an embarrassing loss. Humbling yes, embarrassing, no. That's why basketball is great. A team full of experienced guys that play solid fundamental ball can beat guys that are way more athletic with way more raw talent.


You don't get that as much with college football because size, strength, speed, and athleticism matter so much more in football.

marshall will play and beat NOBODY this year.  their schedule is not comparable to ecu's.  it is more like UNCC schedule.  

No, it is nothing like Charlotte's schedule. Charlotte's schedule is entirely FCS or non D1.


I never said it was even remotely comparable to ECU's. ECU had a great OOC schedule, but ECU's conference schedule is mostly trash. The AAC is a bad, bad, bad conference.


ECU and UCF are solid. Houston is okay. Temple might be good, but they haven't played anyone worth a poo yet, so who knows there. The rest of the conference is pretty much terrible.


Most RPI and rating sites have CUSA listed as a slightly stronger conference than the AAC or dead even this year because the bottom of the AAC is so dreadfully bad. The top of the AAC is definitely stronger though.


In ESPN's Bottom 25, the AAC has 


SMU (#1)

UCONN (#4)

Tulsa (#5)

Tulane (#19)


ECU is unfortunately scheduled to play all of these teams.


That doesn't take away from ECU's OOC play, but like I said before, that SOS is going to take a hit.


At the end of the year, the computer numbers will likely be very similar for Marshall and ECU (assuming neither slips up and gets another loss) and it will come down to the eye test.


I don't really care who gets the spot because I'm not a fan of either team and since Charlotte isn't in CUSA for football yet, we won't see any financial windfall from Marshall getting the major bowl appearance. I just laugh at ECU fans that keep making comments like they're far and away better than a Marshall team that beat the poo out of them last year and returned almost their entire team.


This is probably Marshall's best team since the late 90's, but they F'd up big time with the schedule and there will always be an asterisk beside this season unless they get the major bowl game and win it.

If I were him, I'd be relieved. He got off pretty easy considering what he could have gotten under law.
