They are part of the reason RPI is being discredited. Good RPI, flameout quickly in the tourney. Good program, but just haven't gone far enough to outweigh Boise football.

You sound like a ridiculous homer trying to say SDSU is the equal to Boise in football. Call back when you have a top 10 finish. Boise has 4 + 9 other top 25 finishes. Call back when you have been to a major Bowl. Boise has 3 Fiesta Bowl wins.

And yes, people do care that Baylor was awful from 1996-2009. Its a black mark on their resume. They don't get to pretend that time or Dave Bliss or Art Briles don't exist.

Gee, the year that was cancelled by COVID (2020) we would have been no lower than a 2 seed in MM. And we would have had our center, Nathan Mensah, back at the time of the tourney. He missed much of the year due to a lung embolism. That was one hell of a team even without Mensah.

Both times we have made the "Sweet Sixteen" we lost to the eventual champion. Last two years we have drawn Syracuse (who plays a 2/3 zone) and Creighton in the first round. Currently, we are projected as a 14-15 rating. I think that is low but we will see in the Maui Tournament. We have a redshirt by the name of Jaedon LeDee who has been really good in his redshirt practice (another "best player on the floor" like Xavier Thames and Malachi Flynn) and in our local "Swish" league. Not only did we bring in some very good players, we brought back 3 "super seniors."

Our BB has done pretty good despite being in the MWC.

Boise St. had a good run in football, but they are nothing special now. Again, we are 4-3 against them since we started playing them in 2011. Yes, BSU has a storied history but that is well in the rear view mirror now. They were just 7-5 last year under Avalos who is is twice removed from Chris Petersen. I'd say SDSU is currently a better football program than Boise St., at least viewing current recruiting stats. After that, we are much better in BB as well as budget numbers. And the latter is going to significantly increase with the new stadium.

Would I be against BSU tagging along with us to either the PAC or B12? Nope. Right now it appears that one reason the PAC hasn't already taken us is the lack of an equal partner.

Shame 2020 got cancelled. SDSU and Dayton both had outstanding teams. But you don't get to put on your resume tournament appearances that never happened.

So you are saying SDSU cannot say it was a tournament qualifier much less one that would be seeded highly despite being ranked 6th at the end of the season? I guess that year never happened then. <sarcasm>
Well based on history, you might have expected another first round upset loss.
You keep missing the point. SDSU has never done anything in basketball. You get measured by the tourney. Only two sweet 16s and nothing beyond (unless you had some back in the 60s/70s).

Two S16's since 2010. Also, we have been given Syracuse, with their zone, twice in the last decade as first round teams. Last year we got Creighton.

I'll put up our BB program against most in the P5 right now. Our team this year could be as good as the one that would have been a #2 seed during the COVID year.
