I see Dayton, SLU, Richmond and VCU are represented. They need some pro Siena guys on the board. You could try that.

Heck even funnier there was a St Bonaventure guy on there.

He's been here before and is a decent poster. I understand what he is trying to sell if you can overlook the name on the jersey. Not sure the time is right to go there though.

yeah. It's just weird thinking St Bonaventure/Big East.

Just something about trying to limit the debate rubs me the wrong way. I don't care for NovaBall too much- but don't have a problem for instance him posting his stuff. I'm sure there is a faction of Nova fans that are upset with how much football gets. Don't think it's a huge faction or we'd know a heck of a lot more about it.

It's a real slippery slope when you limit debate. What is worse about how they do it over there- it's basically you get thrown into the dungeon you are there permanently. That's a complete joke.

It's amazing how they allow direct personal attacks over there. Only one moderated is me. What BS. Just a oh I have to feel good about myself bull****. It's a shame because there are a lot that are good on there- but 2 things- 1 they refuse to stand up to the bullies- and 2- those bullies just shout anything I have to say down. What's pathetic is when I posted under a 2nd name- no one said a word about how I was posting. I could say the sky is blue- and those morons would shoot it down...

And sorry but recruiting for the Big east is a concern. Only 5 top 100's last year and 8 so far this year. meanwhile- other programs in P5 are starting to get more and more recruits. And to try to use the 2013 season(which was signed a month before the split even occurred) is disingenuous.

You may see an emphasis on the "draft and develop" model where teams with upperclassmen will be solid and then a year or two down, then solid again. Maybe a Butler or a Creighton are competing for 3 years, down 1 or 2, and up again for 3. I think you are fine to be worried in the short term, but we won't know for a few cycles if this is the case.

The thing that is scary is the total number of P5 top 100 guys...

2014 they "only" got like 65 guys
last year that number jumped up to 82.
This year so far up to 52 as of yesterday. But there are 26 guys left in the top 100. Pretty significant jump there I think.

One thing that hurts with the Butler/Creighton strategy(if it exists) that you say- I don't think you get anywhere near the respect compared to teams that are good all 8 years. What helped Butler a few years ago was they had been so good for so long, so that is in large part why they got a 5 seed, compared to Creighton who was more 2 on 1 off relatively speaking. They always got stuck with 8 or 9's as a result.

The thing that is concerning is that not just the p5 getting more guys- but also some of the teams getting the guys. It's not just Kentucky/Duke/Michigan St, etc. getting those guys. Alabama has 2 top 70 guys this year. Cal had 2 top 10 guys last year. LSU. Miss St.

Oh and the stuff about ESPN not being equal to networks for college basketball is just bizarre. Sorry but this is something I posted hours ago but of course we know things can be slow..... Fox had last year 1 game all year long that got over a million viewers. Duke/St John's. ESPN had 29 games over 2 million. To act like network is better than cable in 2015- really it's not.

Unfortunate. May not agree with all your points, but the censorship is unfortunate.
