Talk about class.


You're a trash play-in fan. Enjoy the offseason.


Come on man. Who you are as a person is not reflected by the team he roots for. "Trash play-in fan" comment was uncalled for.

Just because you cheer for the Shox does not make you any better than anyone else.

From a columnist in the local paper here in Bloomington (not even a sports writer)...

Illinois State's basketball team is clearly not as good as Wichita State's, and now the discussion is whether ISU can possibly get into the NCAA field after losing to Wichita on Sunday by 20.

Perhaps, however, the discussion should be on just how good -- and obviously under-rated -- is Wichita State?

Yes, ISU (with 27 wins) deserves to be among the country's top 70 teams.
And Wichita deserves much better regard.

I just don't get you. A Bradley fan can come on here and troll a fan base after a championship and that gets you no looks. But I RESPOND to those derogatory comments and I'm the one that gets the lecture.

Because I'm sure you have shown such restraint when seeing comments you don't like on this board. Please spare me.

And my team is BETTER. This is a message board and that's how these things work.

Congratulations to the shox,I'm sure they will represent the Valley well.
Now the Birds will have the waiting game.I believe they should get in.
Hopefully there won't be any upsets in the power conferences tournaments.
Lastly,I wish they would do away with conference tournaments.Reason why
You can have a team that does not perform well all season,then gets hot
During the conference tournament and knock out a team like Illinois St who
Has done well all year.Award the regular season champ with the NCAA bid.

I agree with this. However, it's (A) never going to happen cuz $$$ and (B) doesn't really apply in this case anyway.

Correct (on B), but for Belmont it does in the OVC!

Yea, it is definitely frustrating for Belmont, Monmouth, etc. to dominate their league all season only to watch another school ankle bite them in their tournament (especially for Monmouth since the conference tournament loss was a de facto road game).

Conference tournaments are fun but it's generally a dumb system. $$$ and TV are the two reasons status quo will continue to reign.

I'm just not sure that outside of the top 5-8 conferences the money and TV is really working out in their favor on the whole.
