2020-2021 College Basketball Season Thread
Deleted the old thread for the sake of moving on and removing the pettiness. Rath is right, we shouldn't be doing a post-mortem on Mick every year and I know I started it, so in the interest of not wanting to continue being "that" fan base of jilted people, I created a new thread and ask that we keep that topic of conversation to a minimum here.

In that spirit, ******* does Gonzaga look good. Jalen Suggs looks like the real deal too, it's kind of crazy that he is the first elite recruit Gonzaga has ever really gotten straight out of high school. If they start pulling those guys more consistently, look out...

Pitt lost to Saint Francis 80-70. Boy has the Yinzers fallen on hard times in hoops (their football is mediocre as well). I hold that school most responsible for the blow up of the Big East that UC played in-- they can continue to suck for eternity as far as I am concerned.

Yep...all for them falling completely into obscurity for the rest of time. They single handedly killed the Media Rights vote that qouldve set the Big East up as the 6th Power Conference even back then.

No ranked matchups today, but a couple of interesting ones:
West Virginia vs. Western Kentucky
Houston vs. Boise State

Not sure how they do it, but Western Kentucky gets some dudes every year of late.

Yeah, they always manage to kind of find a niche getting the non-qualifiers in the Top 100. Always a very fun team to watch for sure.

I believe I mentioned in the pre-deleted thread that in addition to Pitt, Georgia Tech got off to a poor start. They lost to Georgia St in 4OT so not quite a Pitt debacle but you wonder how long Josh Pastner has at the helm. Dude is in Year five there and is 65-68 [.489] with no NCAA tourney appearances. I remember his Memphis teams became average once they left CUSA.

Yep, they just got a commit from Jamarius Sharpe the 7 foot juco from Hopkinsville. Not sure if it's on the up and up or Stansbury is that convincing. He's from KY though so he may be able to keep kids down there.

Some history there: https://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/...67885.html

So I tune into FS1 to watch some of the X game. There was horse racing on. The program note said that the X-Toledo game was being played as scheduled but not televised "due to local health guidelines".

What, do we get covid from watching TV now?

With no or hardly any fans I think we are going to see lots of results like this. Low energy and sloppy.

Lots of games may feel like those old Las Vegas Tournaments where teams played in little high school gyms and it felt like a scrimmage. It could be a strange season for lots of programs.

Well ****...today is actually shaping up to be a great day 03-lmfao

WKU-WVU has been great, OU is beating Illinois, the aforementioned UVA game, and Kansas and St. Joe's look pretty even out of the gates

Like a "reverse blackout"???

Too many people at the game, so we won't show it on TV...

Back in the mid 90s, in my final quarter at UC, I told an elective "Sociology of Sports" course. It was a pretty easy course, we'd sit around and talk about sports... a lot of athletes in the class. I learned that statically it was determined that hoops had bigger "home court/field advantage" over other sports.

The other thing to keep in mind, how often have we complained over the years over the officiating calling fouls to please the crowd. Not going to happen this year.

I read that the crew that was supposed to broadcast the game had to be quarantined.

They aren't. Freemantle is only solid interior player and all of the perimeter guys sans Scrugg have major deficiencies that will really be exposed against high major athleticism. They look like a NIT team to me.

As a sport it’s uncanny how an arena’s energy can impact a game.

Reason why we have looked like crap at empty high school gyms like ECU and Tulane over the years.

It will be interesting also to see how this plays out in conference and the NCAA tournaments. Typically, the crowd energizes the David's against the Goliath's. So, it may work the other way as well with few fans in the stands. We shall see...
