After losing 3 teams with only 9 games played last night - today is the BIG day for shaping the conference tourney fields. Of note today: The last day of the Ohio Valley regular season Edwardsville, EIU and Martin are playing for their lives today. Two teams in - one team stays home. I think there i...

Re: D-I break down of what could happen the next 3 years

Interesting take, but the MVFC is its own entity correct? They could add any FB only members to discourage a conference from sponsoring FB. Yes, the MVC and MVFC are 2 separate conferences Sent from the nexus of the universe They are - but that's not really what I'm getting at. It's a cultural diff...

Re: D-I break down of what could happen the next 3 years

Given that the MVC doesn't have all the cards - they seem likely to be caught in a bind anyway. The Big East/Catholic 7 split is probably not the last salvo... poaching Butler, St. Louis, Xavier, Creighton and Dayton lays out a road map for the A-10 and Horizon League to pilfer the non-football scho...

Setting aside my pipe dream -

I think they should be eyeballing Milwaukee, UIC or Omaha. UMKC is probably already on the phone - after their inexplicable decision to go to the WAC... who the hell knows what they are thinking.

BE bball keeps the name adds Xavier, Butler in 2013 and Creighton, Dayton, St.Louis in 2014 If Creighton is gone, who does the MVC pick up? Summitt has to be pretty shaky right about now. MVC should eye up the three Dakota schools - and let the A-10 or Horizon snipe Bradley and Evansville and go al...

Re: The Madness before the madness: conference tournament th

Three Ivies could be eliminated tonight:

Cornell
Penn
Yale

if any of them lose, or if Harvard wins, they are ALL out.

Harvard-Princeton tonight could very well determine the Ivy winner, a Crimson win would all but seal them as the Conference champion.

It's time for that annual tradition - tracking who is in, and who is already eliminated from the tournament. Same as always - a full listing of every single team - and we eliminate the teams who cannot make the tournament. This year, we start with 346 Division I Teams, and eliminate an astonishing 1...
