Nothing to gain, as usual they’re RPI/NET killers and have been for years. We are the perceived better program and again, we have been for awhile.

But...but...but...they are in the almighty CUSA. Their two highest NET teams are ranked around 100. Actually, I would like to see JSU and Harper wipe the floor with them.

Jax would stomp wku. We got lucky to escape them two years in a row in semi’s

It tells ya all ya need to know when one finds out western kentucky university is not even close to actual western kentucky. Can't even name their school right.

But really what would we gain by playing them? They haven't been a contender in their conference for 10+ years now.

Smidge always said wku is a rpi buster school. If u guys don’t have much good to say for this Ky school, I will. Like dropkick said. When wku does make the dance as a 16 seed or the pig team, they are a tough out. They won’t get a nit bid this year, so no post season for you. They have a no policy for cit, etc. They should lower their standards to reflect the state of the program

Another interesting topic of discussion by the pillpopper fans.

I was wondering when someone else would see that. Those dopes are never satisfied where they are. OVC...not satisfied. Sun Belt...not satisfied. CUSA...not satisfied. If they think they're ever going to get into a P5 conference, keep dreaming. They can barely win anything in CUSA.

Wow they do know how to complain. They are so upset that we are out recruiting them year after year after year.

C-USA is a mess. I'd rather stay in the OVC than "move up" to the C-USA.

I bet you in took a poll of Western fans, you'd be surprised at how many want back in the OVC.

They would never admit it. If we subbed out UTM and SIUE for wku and MTSU, the OVC would be better off. However, they have that "big time" football now and there's no turning back from that. Too bad their football program took priority over their basketball program and weakened it.

Their football program is a $6 million drain on them right now.

Haters gonna hate. Why should we even care what some turds from some hick University (that can't even cheat their way into the tourney) thinks.
