RE: Middle Tennessee RANKED #24 in both polls!
The thing that really gets to me is that we get little respect even among non-power teams much less P5. Case in point is Rhode Island. Everybody seems to love RI. If you look at CBS or ESPN bracketology they have RI as a 5 seed and MT as either an 11 or 12. Heck, Lunardi even has us playing RI in the 12/5 game. Never mind that RI has exactly the same number of Quadrant 1 wins as we do.

Presumably this goes back to some of the issues I've talked about with scheduling regarding northeast basketball and the inherit bias. Does anyone actually believe that RI is worthy of being seven seeding spots ahead of MT?

If you look at it statistically as of right now MT should be an 8 and RI should be a 6.

I can go through a day and not hear a Southern accent. I miss that.

But progress is progress, I reckon'.


Is it getting that bad? Liberals ruin every place they go.

Happy for my school. Elated for the conference. I really think we are going to get back to being a 2 bid league soon.

The level of play from the top 3-4 makes for really good basketball. If we could somehow splay out the scheduling from more than Th-Sat, that would be awesome.

Congrats guys. MT should be an at large team if you don't win the tournament. That would be the best outcome for the conference.

As for Saturday, UAB is coasting on fumes so I'll be shocked if we win or even keep the game within 10. We're down to 7 guys that play meaningful minutes and Cokely is battling a back injury.

I remember just a few years ago, at a game at UAB when we were in the Belt...... UAB's marketing director at the time was an acquaintance of mine..........

I asked him if MT had a shot at getting into C-USA. He just laughed and said... sorry, no chance.

Maybe we do belong after all 04-cheers

Pretty damn good for a Raider Lookin' at Fitty . COGS

We"ve waited a long time for this.

And you know I'm a hoops guy through and through. Unlike most MT fans, Foosball is just lagniappe for me.

It's truly amazing. With the more articles you see written about MT, they all come with a condescending tone.

My personal favorite continues to be when these journalists write about last year how we "upset Minnesota" clearly oblivious to the fact that we were favored in that game. The ESPN phenomena is strong, and it reeks.

There was a post on Hilltopper Haven that WKU has been ranked 112 times in the AP poll. I know this goes back to the FDR days but that is at least a pretty impressive accomplishment, how many times have other CUSA schools been ranked?

Off and on. Not sure about totals. I'd imagine it's more than ODU and less than WKU.

My sincerest regrets; however, this thread is not about the Paleozoic era of wkcc basketball. You might have been looking for MeTV or Encore Classic Channels.
