Now that would be hilarious! 03-lmfao (And I personally think it should happen. Our fellow Bayou City school needs to step up and tell the Longholes off!)

It's all fun and games until UT starts playing ND in Reliant every other year.

RE: OT: Maryland cuts off athletic relations with Georgetown
Memphis is surrounded by SEC teams and have usually played at least one (UT, Mississippi, Mississippi State) on the FB schedule for what seems like forever. They're playing Vanderbilt in a few years.

As far as basketball is concerned, Memphis has dropped UT, Mississippi, and Arkansas off the BB schedule and has no plans on playing them again anytime soon.

They WANT to play Memphis. We've never really had a problem playing the local SEC teams.

Here is a short list maybe everyone else can add to the list.
Ohio State will not play Cincinnati in basketball on any frequest basis.
Kentucky will not play Cincinnati
Indiana will not play Cincy
These games would be great for the region
Cincy has tried to schedule all of these schools which are with in 100 miles of each other. The answer is thanks but no thanks.

Yes, but in your cases it is obvious why those schools won't schedule Cincy. Those are big-time flagship universities that have little to gain by scheduling Cincy. Cincy, otoh, as a smaller-profile program, would gain by being on the same stage with them.

In contrast, Maryland and Georgetown are essentially equals as college basketball programs, and so it makes no sense for either to be petulant about playing the other.

You could use the same argument about the Texas schools and us but come on man!

Well, actually, it is the exact same argument. Why would big-profile schools like Texas and Texas AM want to give Houston a stage on which to shine? If Texas beats Houston, everyone will say "well, big Texas beat up on little Houston, big deal, what did you expect?", but if Houston beats Texas, everyone will say "big bad Texas got their asses handed to them by Houston, ROFL"! .. and then what's more, not only do other big-time programs laugh at Texas a bit, Houston will also gain more prominence and respect. Texas therefore has no incentive to play Houston.

Bottom line: Houston needs Texas, Texas does not need Houston.

There's a few ways to look at it. A&M probably looks down on poor ol UH...and they don't need you to penetrate the Houston market. They're well represented on their own.

Baylor's interesting. They've been pretty crummy up until they took your coach, so you could make an argument they're avoiding you. Then again, some of those years weren't UH's proudest moments. I wonder if UH even has any interest in playing a team that's been accused of politicking you out of the last Big 12 spot?

We are open to all takers among those "big boys". Willing and ready to prove the naysayers wrong or go down fighting.

That's because you have everything to gain and nothing to lose by playing Texas. Texas, otoh, has nothing to gain but something to lose by playing you. So this posture of yours is not exactly heroic ...

Contradicting yourself in the same post? MD is an ACC flagship school, GTown is a private school.

Cincinnati is a flagship school and the largest employer in SW Ohio. OSU has avoided UC since we beat them in consecutive National Championship games. UC gets more by beating a highly ranked Syracuse, or Louisville team. Bob Knight scheduled UC, we played Purdue OOC. OSU will play UC in football as long as it is in Columbus.

No contradiction. Georgetown is an elite private university, ranked #22 nationally in academics by US News, just behind Notre Dame and just ahead of Carnegie Mellon. GU is ocated just a couple miles from the national seats of power and are well-connected in all branches of the federal government. Maryland, likewise, is a well-regarded public university also located just a few miles from Congress, the White House, etc.

Athletically, our men's basketball is a Big East power with the same historical and contemporary accomplishments as Maryland's. Georgetown and Maryland are very equal as basketball "brand names".

Cincy, otoh, is much smaller-profile than Kentucky, Ohio State, and Indiana. Those schools would clearly the be the marquee names in any matchups between them. Thus, Cincy has far more to gain by playing those games than they do.

Hate to say it, but the Hoyas position here is asinine. There is no good reason not to play Maryland in men's basketball. We should play every year, at the Verizon Center, with equal ticket distribution.

agreed...esp since Gtown would kick maryland's arse most years...why not

??????????????????????????????????????????????????

Uh...UC has more final fours and national championships than either Gtown or maryland...

UC was rated the #10 best basketball program of all time by SI...in front of OSU

So, neither OSU, UK, or IU has anything to gain by playing a Big East team that has 42 tourney wins/2 national titles/6 final fours?????

Dude, don't act like we are some podunk pos program...we have more tradition than either gtown or maryland and we may not be UK/IU but we certainly hold our own historyically to OSU and to say UK/OSU/IU have nothing to gain by playing us is complete and total BS

RE: Maryland cuts off athletic relations with Georgetown
Gotta love the fake Georgetown fan calling Cincy "smaller-profile" considering Cincy beats Georgetown in almost every single historical category. All-time wins, Final Fours, Championships, take your pick.

So yeah, maybe don't go barking up that tree tonight.

no doubt...see my post above

statistically UC holds their own to OSU historically and to say UK/IU have nothing to gain by plaing us is unreal. To 10 basketball proram all time by SI and UK/IU/OSU don't have anything to gain by playing us...BS

And then acting like maryland/Gtown are elite blah blah blah?????

UC has more ncaa titles and final fours than EITHER of them...

LOL gotta love Quo..Once again he won't let things like STATS, and FACTS get in the way of his opinons on Brand. If Quo "thinks" UC is small time vs the said schools, then by God we are...regardless of the fact we have better stats historically vs 3 of the 5 schools he listed.
