From what I gather from posts here and tidbits elsewhere it looks like non-con home slate is
S. Illinois
Delaware St
TROY
Ft. Wayne
High Point
2-3. Non D1s

Thoughts?

Is that the Salukis in Carbondale or SIU Edwardsville from the OVC?
If it's Southern Illinois, it's the Salukis.

So the NCAA will be putting more emphasis on road wins, not just total number of wins/losses for the tournament brackets. I wonder if this provides a chance for teams like ETSU to get some quality home games in the future from SEC type teams. If Kentucky knows that they will beat us, why not go on the road and get the win and the road points also?

Yeah, I'm sure Calipari's already made that call. But really, this truly should help some. But UK isn't coming here. It may get them to go to somewhere like Butler, Dayton, Marquette (The ETSU of the North), or Purdue - something like that where they can still get a road win *and* a great paycheck. But truthfully, that's not even likely for UK. Virtually all the odds are still stacked in their favor, and this isn't enough incentive to change their M.O. Now somebody like Ole Miss, or Ga. St., or a Richmond, George Washington, or Davidson.......yeah, maybe. Or somebody from the USA like MTSU, Marshall, or even WKU; that becomes a bit more possible. [The Salukis are a good get - although they were weaker than usual this past season.]

Without "doing the math", this appears to be a move that helps mid-majors, but it's not some tectonic shift. At least not at first glance.

The Bucs are handcuffed. No good mid major or major wants to play in JC. Their chances of getting beat are to great. Also the lower mid majors and lower division schools are asking for big bucks to come to JC.

You wouldn't believe the number of schools that said 'no way'.

LOL. I specifically put that in there for you, dude. (Really.) And I know; although isn't Swanagin(sp?) gone now?

[editorial opinion: although he works like a maniac, I'm not sure his speed is NBA-level. He should be able to make a team, but I doubt seriously he'll be a star. (Now watch me be made a liar....)]
