i dont see how UCONN wins tonight. Short rest going TO louisville?

the question is can UCONN win 1 of the hard games? @Louisville, @Cuse, home marquette, home cuse.

because if they dont 9-9 in conference isn't really going to cut it, i dont believe.

Thats really what you should do. Thats what I did, and you appreciate the game so much more...though, your bracket picks will fucking suck because you have so much info to process and too much reason into your ideas.

You can whittle it down by leagues and how they play to make it so you don't have to watch EVERY night
Agreed, that's the best way. I need to get a new, nicer television and re-up my xbox live subscription to watch a bunch of ESPN 3 games so I can see more mid-major/low-major basketball. I watched Vermont and New Hampshire play in Vermont -- tiny, tiny gym with no seats on the baselines at all -- and loved it even though it was a 10+ point game, I think.

This explains it better than I could. It's basically about budgetary size, to be honest.

Edit: Low major are schools like Loyola that are tiny and often not good. This applies to mostly just basketball given there are 345 division 1 teams in D1 and only 120 in football.

Edit 2: I'd say that the conference sizes go like this: BCS/Power conferences (like the ACC), Major conferences (like the A-10), Mid-Major (like the Horizon) and Low Major (like America East). That's my opinion.

Thanks for the information. I guess I'll do some reading and tons of watching and see what I come back with. Thanks so much for the guidance.

i see it as Cal, and between Oregon, Washington, ARizona, Colorado, Stanford (2). None of those teams are awful honestly..arizona's been playing pretty well as of late, and i'm sorry but i dont know much about colorado (havent watched any colorado games)

No worries, not many people have looked at Colorado much. We we're picked to finish about 10th or 11th in the conference by most experts. But people were basing that off of the fact that we lost four starters and 75% of our scoring from last year. Our freshman have been a huge boost as well as some of our returns and transfers, but for the most part we've been under the radar. I think Cal will get a bid, but it really is there for the taking in this league.

Kentucky/Florida game starting in a few, think Florida is a bit overrated but should be pretty good.

So now that's 17 teams right. 6 original big east members left, notre dame, rutgers, and hahaha 9 cusa teams.

Possible division alignment?
A: UCONN, St Johns, Seton Hall, Providence, Villanova, Georgetown, Cincinnati, Depaul, Rutgers
B: Louisville, Memphis, Marquette, Notre Dame, UCF, South Florida, Houston, SMU

that sounds like a plausible balance of quality and distance to me.

One more team? Xavier, UMASS, Butler, Richmond, Saint Louis, Marshall, UAB, idk if a MVC team is ready for the leap,
