WKY/ODU have the next best chanches. (Wky slightly higher, prolly a slight fav if they meet). Either team can beat MTSU if Middle has slightly off night.

UAB is a sleeper. I dont think they are very good but cokely can dominate games. They would be my 4th choice.

Hard for Marshall to win 3 in a row with no defense. Can get hot offensively but hard to expect that to happen 3 games in a row. At some point you need to get stops.

Cant see anyone else with a chance.

We get hot in this tourney and it's all over. We have grinded out plenty of games this season, and to hear that we play no defense whatsoever and the disrespect from odu fans is funny. Please win your side and i hope we win ours. Ill.be in frisco as you pack your luggage for the CIT, laughing, as we punch our ticket if we can somehow beat middle again, who will throttle you regardless if they do win.

You know what sucks about this tournament? Besides everything else? In the quarterfinals you can't watch your potential semifinal opponent before or after your game because they're taking place concurrently. Unless you get a seat near the divider and can watch both games at the same time?

That is what you guys said before ODU traveles to WVA and beat you guys. You guys are 4th best team in CUSA, you are delutional if you think you are the best team in conference.

ODU actually has a great chance at NIT and a shot at NCAA.

Middle - Prohibitive favorite no matter what happened on Senior Night. Part of me would laugh if they lose first game of tourney and get sent to NIT. Actually I’d laugh a whole lot if that happened. I’m sitting here hoping and hoping it happens. Don’t bother telling me about how I should be pulling for the conference to get two in. My hating right now is at a level that if the NCAA said CUSA gets no representative if you try to send Middle I’d applaud like the Shia Labouff meme and shout ‘BRAVO’.

Marshall - Only team in the league that can beat Middle. I’ll buy DD a “I Choked Linda Lovelace” tee shirt to wear under his Goodwill blazer if he beats Middle again.

ODU - If Marshall knocks off Middle, then ODU has a shot at this thing. If Middle is in the final then the biggest neck in the Western Hemisphere has no chance at winning.

UAB - Picked at the top of the league preseason. Played some pretty shitttty ball this year doe. I picked them to win against us last night. I didn’t pick them to shoot the ball like they were playing with a ladies basketball. They’ll beat the dogshittt out of us when we meet again.

Western - Done. Stick a fork in. I have no idea what happened between last Saturday night and Thursday evening but it wasn’t good.

These teams have ZERO chance of winning the whole thing.

FAU-FIU-UTEP-UTSA-UNT-USM-LA TECH

One of the FAU/FIU combo could beat one of the upper teams because both play hard defense but both really suck offensively. Games generally slow down come tourney time so they could be in one late. But I don’t see any way they could do it more than once in the tourney.

UTEP has no chance to beat any of the top 5. They could beat UTSA since Jackson is gone. UTSA can’t beat any of the top 5 without him. They could beat UTEP but I hope the San Antonio kid goes Lebron on them for not announcing his name when he went home.

That’s almost as chickenshittt as Middle Tennessee switching out nets on opponents goals to f with them. DURING THE GAME. Middle fans....that chickenshitttt move is another reason I detest the Vole State. Don’t even try to defend that hillbilly move either. That’s right up there with your non state tax paying asssses not building good highways.

La Tech has wobbled all year. I don’t see that changing now. Might beat FIU first game but can’t beat any of the top 5.

UNT should beat USM since the game is closer to UNT than any other team in the league. I believe they’re calling them hosts but Frisco ain’t in Denton. Last year I thought the Basketball Joel Osteen had his swoon at Arky State because he was already standing on a street corner hiking up the leg on his sharkskin suit to the UNT Athletic Director driving by slowly and rolling the window down during the season. Same thing happened this year at UNT doe. And I kinda doubt any of the big boys were driving by his corner slowly yet. I’m not close enough to the sitch to know why his teams plummeted at the end two years running.

USM has racked up more wins than I ever dreamed they would. But most of them were in Hattiesburg. They’re not in a true road so maybe they can pull the upset. But they won’t beat any of the top 5.


I agree with you at least 95%.
Those are the only 5 who have any chance. I still gotta put WKY ahead of UAB and both are on the opposite side of MTSU so that’s a plus. The other team that can beat MT (besides MU) is MT. Anybody’s capable of laying an egg. But they’re probably the least likely of the bunch to self-inflict. I also say they’re in as an at-large already even if they go 0-fer Frisco.

I think you answered your own question on how to watch both games.
Tip times are offset by 30 minutes, too. If my team’s starting first, then it’ll be easy to swing over and catch the last 30 minutes of the other court. If you’re starting later then watch the first 30 minutes of the other court and then early in your 2nd half head up to the cheap seats for 15 minutes to catch the early finish while keeping an eye on your team, too.

I’m pretty geeked to have the split-screen option live right there in the arena. ‘Specially since my guys aren’t making the trip.

LOL. Only ticket you'll be punching is the one that takes you from Frisco back home to WVA.

Good luck in the CIT.

We’ve never played in the CIT or that other one. Only schools with zero basketball history or expectations would ever play in either of those loser tourneys.

I’m sure we would play in the NIT if invited but if I was on the committee I wouldn’t invite us. There will be P5 teams with .500 records that got left out of the NCAA tourney that will fill the NIT up.

I think ODU or you guys will go to the NIT if neither of you win the conference tourney. Well, I know you would because they let conference champions that choke in their conference tourney in automatically. I think ODU could get in on their record.

I have not looked at the start times. Is this really how they’ve set it up? That is the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard of. They have 2 mens games going on at the same time????

Why????? Why aren’t the men on one side and the women on the other? Nobody really gives a **** about the women’s games except a few of the Middle and Western fans. Just make sure one school doesn’t have both teams playing at the same time. Surely they could work that out.

Why? Coaches didn’t like playing at 8pm and then turning around to play somebody who’d played a Morning game and had twice as long to recover. And they’re right. This is much fairer. Also schools hated having their women’s and men’s teams playing simultaneously. And this is the easiest way to avoid that problem. Still remains to be seen how the venue turns out but I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out and if we get any local casual fans interested.

Lol. All bark, no bite. Heard the same thing before Marshall lost at ODU. Heard it before Marshall lost to ODU on MU's home court in front of a sellout crowd. I sincerely hope you beat MT, if you make it that far. I will freely admit that is the only path where ODU could hope to win the whole thing.

Agree. Plus, how hard is it to make one side of the bracket play the 7 and 9 games and the other side to play the 1 and 3 games. O’ Clock I mean. Does the team that played at 7 have a little advantage over the team that played at 9? Maybe but it’s not like scheduling the 9 o’ clock winner vs the 1 o’ clock winner. That’s just scheduling.
