Speaking of "around the OVC" did anyone catch any of the b'mont- JSU game? The announcers were fawning all over b'mont and mr. rogers. They were opining why it would be so wonderful to play for b'mont and their glorious mr. rogers. Seriously, they strong view was why wouldnt anyone not play at b'mont?

They treated the actual game score, which had JSU leading pretty much the whole way, as a mistake that would be rectified by games' send.

So happy with the result. :clap:

The best part was the absolute look of shock and awe on old sweater vest’s face when he got T’d up. Priceless.

Oh geez...I missed that. I turned off the TV afraid if I kept watching JSU would blow it...I bet he stomped his foot and clenched his little fists too... :clap: :lol: As most know I cant abide by anyone who is just so special...plus being fawned over by the talking heads.

Since the way to beat b'mont is well known now and really straight forward, I hope others suck it up and put forth the effort.

After watching them last night, I think Morehead is headed in the right direction. I wouldn't be surprised is they beat someone they're not supposed to this year.

They had a tough OOC schedule and I think because of that they should do better than any of us thought originally. I'm definitely more concerned with them than I was EKU.

Off topic I know but I was watching the cats play at Alabama. Why is it we didn’t get any calls down there and Alabama did. Today Alabama isn’t getting the calls only 3 fouls called on Kentucky in the 1st half

I don't think either of those teams qualify as "the best."

Should I have said "better" ?

SEC teams have one advantage over the Racers, that being lots of available size. Of course, they typically avoid any scenario which would have them playing a team like the Racers away from their own court. As far as the Kayuts are concerned, I don't think they will ever get back to being an elite program as long as they insist on running a puppy mill.

I'm not sure what your definition of an elite program is but I would say six Elite 8's or better in the last 9 seasons would qualify. I know this is a Racer board but I'm one of those guys that likes both teams. Name 5 teams more elite since Cal started running his "puppy mill".

Give us a seed 1 through 3 and see how many "elite eights" we get to. Being pandered to sure helps you along the way.

Watching Belmont/TTech waiting for our game. Couple of observations...

1. Belmont struggles terribly against a quick guard. Tech is actually hanging with them because of this and I'm calling this my upset of the season by any team of any conference when it's over.

2. Don't know if it's because of the stream or what but their arena looks very dark with spotlights aimed at the corners.

3. Belmont already has 9 fouls and a technical and their is still 7:30 remaining in the first half. And they really are not playing that physical. Sadly it truly is just horrid officiating.
