    Gonzaga to MWC?

    They're really only a national school when they schedule high-profile non-conference games, play Saint Mary's, or reach the tournament. The rest of their conference competition includes Pepperdine, San Francisco, San Diego, Pacific, Loyola Marymount, Santa Clara, Portland, and BYU. They fall into a void from Christmas until tourney time. The MWC is a solid conference and with matchups against Nevada, UNLV, New Mexico, San Diego State, and an emerging Boise State team, they'll stay in the news all season. I think this move makes tons of sense for them. But mostly I want to see it happen just to screw BYU. I'd also like to see the MWC add a few from Texas, like UTEP, UTSA, Rice, or UNT.

    Too early to start a 2018-19 Basketball thread?

    As in, Alex Robinson? I'd be shocked. He's already transferred once, and I have no reason to believe he won't yet again finish the season as our starting PG. His senior leadership will be key, and Dixon will get him plenty of PT. If Alok can run the court, I could see us playing a lot of small ball with Fischer, Robinson, Bane, Noi, and Alok.

    Listenbee is suing TCU, GP, and Big 12

    This is the same Jordan Ray that wrote terribly for KF.c when he was in school. The kid’s shit. “Audience Growth Editor” = Clickbait Engineer
  6. That’ll be a tough flip. He’s from an Aggie family. He’s damn good though. He’s only missed one PAT in his career. Unfortunately it was in OT of the playoffs. http://texashsfootball.com/cedar-ridge-edges-coppell-overtime/

    3 conference losses by a combined 6 points. A poorly coached team would have that break them. A well coached team grows from it.

    We could make a run and win the Big 12 Tournament, but we’ll finish #5-7 on the regular season table. Which is still a remarkable season considering where we’ve been. I’d just like to get into the big dance and be competitive. That’ll be a satisfying season from my perspective.

    Which wouldn’t be terrible, honestly. That still probably gets us into the tourney at a 9-11 seed.

    Thank God for the 3 ball, or this would be out of reach. We’re getting dominated in the paint on both ends.

    CFP Championship Game

    True. And if that system was applied to football, they don't play enough games for anyone to pull away from the field to the extent that City and Chelsea have done in recent years. I would actually love an EPL style system be applied to CFB but it'll never happen as long as each conference operates independently.

    CFP Championship Game

    And the EPL model has its flaws. For example, we still have months to go but Manchester City has pretty much locked down the title. Fortunately we have a tight race for the 4th spot (Champions League) to entertain us. There is no perfect system, because perfection is unattainable.

    CFP Championship Game

    Yes. And unfortunately, the public doesn't have much to back up their moaning. The biggest winner last night was the Committee, not Alabama. They've only had to make two decisions of any consequence: Ohio State in 2014/2015 and Alabama in 2017/2018. Based on the game results and ratings, they can write off all moaning as biased butt hurt. Could TCU have won in 2014/2015? Probably. Could Ohio State or UCF have won in 2017/2018? Maybe. Ohio State or Stanford probably could've done it in 2015/2016 too. Until there is an automatic bid for every conference, OOC scheduling is equalized, and the number of conference games is the same for everyone, there will always be someone that disputes the National Champion. It is absolutely an Invitational, as are all tournaments that have any element of a selection committee. Only the pros have true playoffs. But even with a playoff, the "best team" is not always a champion. See Patriots vs. Giants in Super Bowl XLII. I enjoy the CFP for what it is: a biased system that serves to feed the CFB/ESPN hype machine and drive revenue. I'll never let that tarnish anything my team accomplishes. The Rose and Peach Bowls are nearly perfect memories. And I love that UCF is defining their own reality rather than letting CFP/ESPN define it.
