Re: Dark horse dunker ft. Marty Hill

Good grief. You people sound so disappointed he didn't win this commercial promotion.
Seriously, get a grip.

Re: Marty Simmons back to Edwardsville?

Since we are still discussing woulda coulda regarding Dru and Ryan. If small motor Ryan Taylor and injury-prone tenderfoot Dru Smith had stayed, which of McCarty's recruits would not be in place today? Going into the season, McCarty had acquired 5 athletes. Which two of them would you be willing to...

Re: Marty Simmons back to Edwardsville?

IF we can assume that Taylor and Smith wouldn't have transferred if Marty had stayed, the Aces likely would have had a better record this year. Win that battle, lose that war. Either way, there's still recruiting to be done to sustain anything, if a .500 record is something to be sustained. I don't ...

Re: Marty Simmons back to Edwardsville?

There was some other tall drink of water that the Aces had offered who went to SIU-E.

Yeah, this kid

Re: O.V.C Bracket

To some end, we may be more concerned about getting into a tournament than building a quality program that is attractive to fans and players, and coaches. Before you get to the NCAAs, you have to start winning important games. That's not Alcorn or Texas Southern. Most middies can't sustain a program...

Re: O.V.C Bracket

One new rule. Barring a tournament win; (no bids to a team with a losing conference record). If that torques the elites off, then they're playing in the wrong conference. That rule would screw over teams that are in conferences that have unbalanced scheduling. Other mid majors or former mid majors ...

Re: O.V.C Bracket

Simply put, currently it is a rigged process. P5 won't schedule favorable mids, then penalize them for schedules. Unless the NCAA gets involved in scheduling, it's not going to change...and I don't see the P5's allowing that. We are more likely to end up with a FBS and FCS type split. I think we'd ...

Re: Valley Pick Em' ARCH MADNESS SUNDAY FINAL

Something for WMc to think about in the off-season. To win Arch Madness, it appears that you MUST know how to win the 55-60 point game. If you look at nearly all the MVC teams, they seem to have the mindset that they just want to have a shot to win at the end. Not a bad philosophy, I'm just saying ...

Re: O.V.C Bracket

I think the NCAA could go a long way toward spreading the fan interest around if they did indeed put more strong middies in the tournament, and not at the bottom end of the seeding.

But they won't.
