  1. Y'all know I'm as big of a homer as any... but I think an 11 seed was the right call; consider this: outside of Temple (x2), who else did the team beat? They didn't play UConn close, lost to a sub-50 RPI team at home. This was a team on the bubble 2 weeks ago. I'm thrilled about going to Tally, and I have my room booked.
  2. They're going to get one of those two, not both.
  3. Think about what Houston needed to do, both Oklahoma AND Louisville on the OOC schedule, to even be considered for the playoff.
  4. If it makes you feel any better, Titus O' Neill's humanitarianism is literally the only thing keeping him on WWE's roster right now.
  5. Agreed on both counts. She has done an amazing job turning UCF into a very, very good program that's going to make a deep run in the WNIT this year.
  6. Interesting note here... Stanford is right now projected to be a 2-3 seed, and just like Louisville in 2015, they can't host. There's definitely an OUTSIDE chance (~1%) of hosting the first 2 games of the NCAA tournament, but I doubt they'd ship Stanford across the country.
  7. Beat Temple: 7 seed and Temple drops to 8 Beat UConn: Automatic Bye to the Sweet 16.
  8. A loss would have put them squarely on the bubble and watching mid-major tournaments like a hawk. A win puts us squarely in the tourney.
  9. Definitely 3: UConn, Temple, and USF. Tulane blew it against UCF, and UCF didn't have the OOC schedule. It's a shame, because they've been stellar this last month.
  10. Huge win for their NCAA prospects; going 2-0 on the road trip essentially clinched an NCAA berth. Huge accomplishment for a rebuilding squad.
  11. I think, despite our collective disappointment, that the team stands exactly where the experts all said they'd be: 3rd place in a (hopefully) 3-bid conference. I agree with CJF's assessment: 2 road games against sub-150 RPI teams; if the team loses either of those, sayonara NCAA tournament, aloha WNIT. If they lose before the semi-finals of the AAC, I'd say the same thing.
  12. As I was leaving the parking lot, I was thinking this exact thing, that I personally thought this team was destined for a deep WNIT run based on its youth and the AAC being a tougher conference, particularly Temple. I thought that 2018 the team would return to the NCAA, and in 2019 with Laksa as a Sr. we'd have a top-4 seed and host a couple of games. 20-5 is nothing to sneeze at, and they have a chance to sweep the 3rd best team in the conference Sunday.
  13. Just getting back from the game; the team was outplayed tonight; UCF exploited the USF's inability to play against a physical team, and knocked them around for 3 quarters. They got offensive boards, drew fouls, forced ridiculous turnovers, and did everything right tonight. Suddenly, the Temple game becomes massive; lose that one, and they're looking at a 20-6 record with 3 sub-100 losses (1 at home), 1 win against a top 25 team and 3 wins against the top 50; is that the resume of a team that earns an NCAA bid?
  14. Parity in College Football or men's b-ball is so much greater than it is in Women's College Basketball, look at the number of upsets in the first round of the women's bracket vs. the men's bracket; UConn is so much further away from even the 10th ranked team, it's silly. UConn's rival until Geno retires will be the Connecticut Sun.
  15. I was there Friday night; the new arena's going to be great, but it's definitely a bare-bones operation at the moment; no snack bar, no elevator (the rink is on the second floor); but the seating is great, and the rink is really nice.
