New year, new season. It's a lot easier to stay out of Thursday if you show up ready for conference play from the beginning. Not two weeks in.

I think UNI and ISUr should be flipped. ISUr tends to barely win games and looked better in the beginning of the season but they have significant wins this season. I by no means feel that they will end up playing on Thursday. I think UNI will turn their play around but these early losses may keep them playing on Thursday. There is a good chance they will be 0-3 after today's game. If they win today I would put them in the 5-6 range.


SMU, NC State, UNLV and UT Arlington aren't significant wins? Good to know. Even with a loss tonight and as frustrating as UNI always seems to be this time of year, they won't be playing on Thursday. Starting to approach the Creighton streak for years avoiding Thursday. I believe Creighton got to 16 before they left and this will be 14 for UNI.


Thursday is still definitely a possibility for the panthers. Youre just not that good this year. You cant score and this Koch is not like the other ones. I think Jacobsen may squeak you by yet again but overcoming another extended O fer start will be tougher this year.

From what I have seen, I pretty well agree with you at the top....although Drake may actually be 1st. I will give UNI a little room since they do tend to trend upwards during the season. Jacobson knows how to improve deficiencies during the season. I would have Loyola and Illinois State above UNI and SIU. SIU looked bad last night, and squeaked out a 2 point win at home primarily because UE kept shooting itself in the arse. My Thursdays for right now would be UE, SIU, InSU and Valpo.

These are all subject to change after this weekend.

Just like I don't think any of us should just assume UNI is NOT a Thursday team because they haven't been the last 13 years.

I do not think they are a Thursday team either, but I can not say it with much confidence right now.
