One thing that's incredible about CBB is the rise of VCU and Butler. I was figuring Smart would leave this past season, but with all these conference breakups, there's a real chance that VCU and Butler get invites to the new Big East conference.

If that happens, and Smart and Stevens stick around, sky is the limit for those programs. They could be absolute powerhouses, and it would be incredible to watch that from beginning to end. Basically our generation's Duke and UNC.

doesn't apply to VCU or Butler, but if they go catholic school heavy, St. Mary and Gonzaga could be a fit with something else out west to round it out- maybe they poach Holy Cross and stay east coast centric- too bad there isn't a Boston school that would fit (no way BC gives up football) since they will have DC, Philly, NY, Chicago?

I never said college basketball sucks.  I quite enjoy the sport and hold season tickets to a B1G school.  I said it's regular season isn't as good as football's, which is true.  It's easy to cherry pick individual games.

Partially, perhaps, and you're welcome to prefer it, that's entirely up to you, but you're in the fairly significant minority.

there's plenty of people who prefer college hoops over college football.  i respect your opinion that you think NCAA FB > NCAA BB, but there are plenty of us who think the opposite.

You sound like PANatsFan in the way you misrepresented DPM's position to suit yours.

Weren't you the one that brought up college football in this thread? I see Maryland really freaked you over this season. Besides, I was just pointing out that you and PANatsFan are a lot more alike than you both are willing to admit.

:lmao:  Not at all surprising that you are one of those.

hell no.

and MD football, if you read the NCAA FB thread, i ripped apart this season.  remember, UMD/terpsfan76 didn't like my comments towards the head coach?

I love college BBall, Go Terps! but I also agree with you. When you have a damn near 30 game season, a conference tourney as well as national tourney, the regular season has less of an impact. You lose one during the Fball season and your title chances may well go down in flames. Keep in mind that I'm not saying one is better than the other per se, just that the regular season in Fball means more.

And Hammond just hates Edsel because he has to rage against something regardless if it makes him look like an asshat or not.

So, you think they'll better next year? Will Edsel have anything to do with that, or will it be someone/something else that leads to them getting better? Or could it be because they'll have an actual qb playing under center?


I think Terrapins basketball will definitely thrive in the B1G, but football? I doubt it. I think we'll have good years, but we'll be just slightly better than the Illini and I really don't think it'll ever matter who the coach is. But who knows...

you say i have to rage against something?

i raged against the nats b/c i'm not happy with ownership.  i'll rage against the team when they lose games.  same goes for any of my teams.

as for MD football, well you'd hope they'd be better in his third season.  and losing to NC State/U-Conn/BC ... they had real QBs for those games.

College B-Ball is firing on all cylinders right now. As good as it has been at any point in my life.

I could say the same for college baseball.
