RE: Middle Tennessee RANKED #24 in both polls!
Im not trying to make this bigger than it is, but this is how a national brand is built. Kermit has outright said that a main goal of his is to be talked about in the same light as Butler, Gonzaga, Villanova. Today marks a massive step forward in doing so.

I would champion any CUSA school that cracks the ranking (Hurts admitting that about Western). If we can replace Memphis in this league and stay there then thats how we get multiple bids. If we can get to the CUSA title and be ranked 19-15ish then lose to ODU/WKU then its pretty clear CUSA would get two schools in. I think we could stay in the top 25 even.

Don't get use to being there 02-13-banana04-cheers

Good to get a CUSA team ranked but it shouldn't be this difficult. Is this Middle's first time to be ranked in the AP?

yes

last year the last week in the coaches poll, the Raiders made an appearance...

And the absurdity of that when you consider the quality of the non-conference schedule Kermit has annually been playing and to have 27, 28, 24, 25, and 31 wins in five of the last six years and still not get ranked until now is - well rather absurd.

Thanks guys.

176 wins (and counting) over the past 6+ seasons and finally.

Over that span here are some of the programs we've beaten:
Vanderbilt
Ole Miss
Auburn
Tennessee
UCLA
Michigan St
Minnesota
And a bunch of other quality mid major programs.

And all it took? Was finally beating La Tech in Ruston!

Will make it that much sweeter when we win at Wookie Palace in Nashville’s Bedroom and knock them out of the rankings.

Do they still have the plywood bathrooms? Are they still selling cokes out of 2 liters?

We bring out the finest when WKU brings their sister brides to town. I heard that they will be offering a free dental clinic this year for all of our friends from Bowling Green

It’s hilarious when any Tennessee Hilljack pretends to be anything other than just another goober southerner just like everyone else in this conference.

You live in Tennessee son. You have Klan marches every year. You can’t even afford to 3 lane your damn highway system. Every time I try to get to Florida some damn Tennessee Hilljack overturns their tractor on narrow asssed 2 lane I-24 and I’m sitting in traffic for hours. The Volunteer State is dead in the bottom 10 by every measure/metric with the rest of our states.

Just be happy Middle finally got ranked in hoops. It’s a good feeling. We know. We’ve been there before.

That is one hella impressive run of basketball. All credit to KD. He changed. He obviously always knew the game itself. But he changed something in the way he started recruiting and retaining. And it’s worked.

Should have been ranked before now and I’m not just talking about this season. But that’s just the way ESPN and the cabal have rigged it now.

Been in a dive in a small town near Knoxville that sold shine at the bar... and the county sheriff was supposedly in the bar drinking some.

Supposedly that same sheriff would call the bar ahead of time when they were doing an impromptu raid.

Stories, stories, southerners have a lot of them. When I was a kid Mississippi was completely dry for everything but beer. Of course all that meant was that everything was sold illegally. When I was 15 and living in Memphis me and a buddy once biked the 2 miles to Southaven MS where there were cinderblock bootleg stores with drive-throughs. Anyone of any age could buy liquor because it was illegal for everyone. Bought my first jack daniels then and we rode home on our bikes, lol.

Liquor would even come with a Mississippi tax stamp--the bootleg tax.

Sorry for the OT rant--when I get going my grandkids just say, "hush, Pappy."

Indeed, a credit to Kermit and his character. Most people who have risen to the levels he has (head coach of D1 program including a P5) would never let evolving as human get in the way of their ego. But he has, and when you consider he is a class act I have an immense amount of respect for him for it.

I grew up there, but I currently live in the state that is typically #2 in the nation for education. People are healthier here. That's one thing that I definitely see a direct link between education and lifestyle. But its fuzzier in a bunch of other areas.

I had an uncle who never finished the sixth grade. For most of his adult life he made his money moving houses. He made more money than I ever will with all my fancy degrees. I still think education is important, but the political BS entering our school systems now with indoctrination and other things is disconcerting.

I often wonder if I will have a hard time fitting in if I move back to the south given my last three stops in life have been south Florida, Atlanta metro and DC/B'more areas. It's been 17 years since I stayed for longer than a holiday in Tenn, and I wear a suit every day. I might feel like Doc Hollywood if I have to go back. 03-lmfao
