I hope Wisconsin has a pretty good season - their 'usual' Top 4 B10 finish and then a S16/E8-ish run in the NCAAs - just so the rest of us can enjoy watching them suck hard as they hover in the bottom half of the leaue without Davis next season.

FUCK Wisconsin!!!, but this Johnny Davis seems to be fairly legit. And I fucking hate it, because he's a Badger.

Good lord, how is he still a thing.
Pretty much the same way bohannon is still a thing.

Iowa offered bohannon after Charlie wanted to get paid and Fran stopped recruiting him.

Here we are 7 years later.

Eventually the NCAA will end eligibility expiration entirely. It’s the right thing to do.

Yep. I have been watching the full time. Great cluster fuck of a game.

The end of that Wichita State vs. Tulane game was horrible. Tulane was down 14 at half and pulled it off. They entered the game 6-7, and now have wins vs. Wichita State, Memphis and Cinci.

Oregon State went to the Elite 8 last year and was 7 points from the Final 4

3-11 this year. Yeah they lost their leading scorer, but got nearly all their other pieces back.

Not sure how that happens.

They were really mediocre last year and got hot in their conference tourney. They were barely over .500 before their tourney. They also missed Illinois and didn’t bear a seed higher than 4. Smoke and mirrors.

In all seriousness all the various Covid disruptions have made sports in general but especially college sports even crazier

I get it, but not sure that adequately explains going from nearly being in the final four to possibly the worst P5 team

The tournament is a crapshoot.

I mean, they lost 13 games and 12 prior to the tournament. In the tournament, they caught Tennessee in the first round, beat a way over-seeded Oklahoma State team and then played Loyola-Chicago.

They also got arguably the worst team in the Elite Eight and still lost.

Good for them that they had a fun magical run, but they came back to earth.

Brad Davison is a few good solid whacks to the melon with a crowbar from being a not-quite-so-shitty fucking punk.

NW up 1 at Michigan State with under 4 to play. Young for NW has missed about 5 straight layups while also fouling guys shooting 3s.

Those last 2 calls were so fucking bad. Luckily the MSU player Petras’d his pants at the line.

Fran has a system that consistently destroys any attempt at quantifying basketball. It’s always been that way.

When does Iowa get smoke and mirrors ?

Really good Purdue / Illinois game right now. Curbelo single handily got them to overtime.

Foster Loyer actually looks somewhat functional in a Davidson uniform vs. a Michigan State uniform.

Davidson's offense is actually pretty to watch. Their 3PT shooting is #2 in the country. VCU plays fast and they are their usual super athletic selves, but their offense is putrid.
