  1. Would be nice to see Gonzaga and U of H in the finals - The Power Conferences would probably demand a restructuring of the tournament 😈

  2. Ugghh. I look forward to the day when Texas Tech is not an upgrade over North Texas. They have the Big 12 and nothing else compared to UNT. And.....it's freaking Lubbock.

  3. It’s inconvenient when a coach chooses to leave on their own, but it also shows growth of a program when there’s no agony.

  6. Talked to a member of that '75 team. Its one of Fry's motivational tactics. After the Tennessee win, he called them "Giant Killers" so with the help of either Bill Mercer or Fritz Von Erich (possibly both), Andre the Giant was brought in.

  10. They have the B12 and nothing else? I’m with you, think Lubbock is LaJunk, but it is precisely because they are in the B12 that they have nearly 10x the resources and leverage compared to us in nearly every talking point. Money. Exposure. Facilities. Fudruckers

  11. I hear you, but Grant had one (1) year of D1 experience when we hired him away from ArkSt. Prior to that it was a couple years at D2 and several at JUCO. Hodge has learned under Grant and other good coaches, plus has been a JUCO head coach. Before joining Eustachy at Southern Miss, Hodge compiled a record of 146-24 in head coaching stints at Midland Junior College (2009-11) and Paris Junior College (2006-09). In his two-year stint with Midland College, Hodge guided the Chaparrals to an impressive 63-7 (.900) record... Hodge coached for four years at Paris Junior College, the l

  12. They were runner-up in 2019. I am not sure how you define upgrade but the rest of the people on this planet think that means it is a better program. Also, in math class we learned that a $5 million salary is 10 times higher than a 500k salary.

  20. I don’t get the whole “move up” thing in basketball. Basketball is one of the sports we play where there isn’t a mid-major ceiling like in football. We advanced farther than Texas and the same as Tech this year. If we hadn’t faced a Villanova having the best 3 pointer day of their life, we may have advanced farther than Tech. The only draw I see here is money.

  22. this makes me hopeful. hopeful that Mac is staying, but also if he's not Bell believes in the program enough with whoever is next, which is just as great. Best news!

  26. Well, you put this poll in the football forum and you didn't put it in the basketball forum. I think that about says enough.

  27. My only problem with it is that the thinking is directly around football & basketball monies. It's not really considering the money drains all of the olympic sports are... but you'd better believe that if football/basketball players get paid, there are going to be Title 9 lawsuits filed for women's equestrian teams to have the same funds.

  28. I mean, I feel like MMs at least have a fighting chance. Every year they are in the convo and helping the model generate excitement/money. In football you can go undefeated across two seasons and still not get postseason consideration. It's like we are not even part of the FBS picture, even though we are part of the formal FBS definition.

  30. I am curious how they are arriving at the 15% capacity. Is that 15% based on seats or would they allow more considering it sounds like people can get down on the floor, etc... Thinking about this, I would be thrilled if 1,500 people showed. It should be much more, but I think many will stay away for two reasons. 1. The continued fear of Covid and (2) thinking they will not be able to get in with the limited capacity.

  31. Name the last Mid Major to win the title. Gonzaga is the favorite this year, but you have to basically go all the way back to UNLV to find one that has won the title. Memphis and UMass got close, but Calipari was involved with both (and each went on probation after he left).

  35. So when will they open more high schools in Allen.? Neighboring Frisco has opened a new 5A school every year. For the past 10 years.I can never respect Allen with their desire to put sports ahead of the general student population. In fact they underform compared to other schools of smaller size.

  37. The most consequential assistant for Beard at Texas Tech is Mark Adams, the architect of the no-middle defense that made him one of the highest-paid assistant coaches in college basketball. Hocutt said Adams was still in Lubbock on Thursday and it’s possible that after serving as a head coach for 23 seasons at lower levels, Adams could take over for Beard in Lubbock. read more: https://www.kcbd.com/2021/04/01/ut-hires-ttu-basketball-coach-chris-beard-according-reports/

  42. In the 70's there was 2 cards a week, on Monday nights in FW and Wednesdays (I think) at Sportatorium. The Monday night card was what Channel 11 showed on Saturday nights in the 70's. By the early 80's, the Ft Worth cards petered out and the focus shifted to the Sportatorium, this was when the Von Erich "kids" started, along with the Freebirds, Chris Adams, Skandor Akbar, etc
