    The whole NIL and portal process makes you wonder what you are really giving money for. If you are from a P5 school, then you are "supporting" a professional team. In doing so, you have to think, do you just donate money to the Washington Wizards? P5 college athletics is another name for minor league professional athletes. If you are a mid-major (in basketball...since football already has the two setups FBS and FCS) you are giving money in hopes that once every 10 years or so, you hit a home run, get to the dance, get blown out by UCON and watch all of your players leave. I really don't know what I think the answer might be, but whatever it is, it something different than we are doing now.

    As was mentioned earlier, this is a temporary problem. Pretty soon the "Power howevermany" will get tired of sharing their money with the Mids and that will be the end of what we now know as March madness. The Towson of the world will wind up playing in some version of an NIT. Just as most folks don't know who won the FCS Bowl title, no one will care about the basketball title as well. I could be wrong, but it certainly is a significant possibility. Just hate where college athletics has gone.

    I agree...to keep the team in together that choked away the game against Charleston is a good thing????????????????????????????? Not sure that I buy that.

    You make several good points and I understand all of it. BTW, I am one of the "old timers" having been going to O's games since the mid 50's.......I still love the early 60's when they were chasing the Yanikees....but that was for them, a first step. My point here is that it is not Skerry's first step. I think we both are seeing the same thing, but one of us (and I congratulate you for being the one) is more tolerant than the other. ....lol

    You can call it whatever you like. The bottom line is those games are fun to watch if you love the sport, but in the end, your season is judged by the playoffs. Advancing to the Regionals is what defines your season.

    I watch games because I enjoy the sport. I go to watch two teams and see great plays and players on both teams. Of course I want a team I support to win, but that does not take away from the outstanding plays and players regardless of the uniform they wear. Last year the orioles won 101 games. They were that talk of the sport in Jume, July, August and September.....However, when they went to spring training this year, that talk was about making up for a poor showing in the playoffs.....not June, July, August or September.......that is the way sports works. You may agree with that or disagree with the importance of each portion, but in ten end, it is the playoffs that matter. In this case it is the conference championship that matters. That does not take away from good plays or players during the season, but what matters is....as mentioned before, the playoffs. That is where quality of players and coaches are measured.

    38-16 is equal to the Orioles dominating Spring Training....just something meaningless to talk about

    I think it would be pretty to find a coach of his caliber except I am not sure there is one who in 13 years has not been to a conference final. A half million for a guy who cant even get to a mediocre conferences finals is not one worth retaining.

    Izzo Proposal

    Any thoughts on Tom Izzo suggesting removal of automatic qualifiers for Mid-Major programs. The beginning of the end?

    Close Game Losses/Other Numbers

    If you watch all of Skerry's press conferences after losses, he starts out with "I love the effort of these guys". To quote the Stony Brook coach after the loss in the finals.....I try hard at golf, but don't get invited to the Masters.......effort is nice, but that is a minimum expectation of a scholarship NIL athlete.
