UNI had its worst year in 15 and finished 138. On what planet, other than the one you inhabit where you hate UNI and think GCU is America's Greatest basketball power, would anyone not think they'll be in the top 150, especially looking at the way they schedule?

BTW, your Redbirds were one statistical anomoly of a half away from getting swept by that UNI team....

But, did they?

Didn't realize almost was good enough.

Did it frustrate you watching them drain 11 of their first 12 3's of that half and end 12/15 for the half? You must have been throwing stuff at your TV.

I'd assume you were in the same boat when you were down 30 to a team that couldn't play offense, when you were in Cedar Falls...

I get the intrigue. I do. I just don't see anyway a room full of University presidents allows it to happen and that's not just the Valley. There's a reason they're in the WAC and that reason is that league needed a warm body and they found one.

Honestly, the Summit League thing is interesting for GCU and NMSU. It basically the same is what they have now, but slightly better and slightly more stable. Would SDSU want to bring two programs in that could make it more difficult to win the league every single year? Maybe not. But on the flip side, it would bring more stability to a league that always seems to be teetering on the edge of imploding. UVU and UMKC could fit in the Summit too.

GCU will never be in the Summit for the same reason a lot of leagues will not take them, they are the U of Phoenix with a campus. Whether the stay a for profit or if they get their wish of splitting the school and pretending to be non-profit, the University Presidents at the four large "Dakota" schools want nothing to do with GCU. In addition, GCU, in what was supposedly their best year ever, finished the year with an RPI in the high 150s. Not very impressive. Lots of hype, very little to show for that hype.

If I were running the Summit I would try to add NMSU and UNC. Would adding NMSU make it more difficult for SDSU to reach the NCAA? Yes, and that's good, we need someone to replace NDSU as a top Summit BB school since the Bison seem to have given up on the sport. That said, don't pretend that SDSU have been to the NCAA only based on the tournaments location. SDSU have gone to the NCAA tournament 5 times in 10 years. Four as a #1 or #2 seed. Once as a #4 seed (though they had won 10-12 to end that season after a terrible start). Our average RPI in that run is 91 with 3 of the years in the top 50 including this season's finish in the 30s.

I'm more than a little confused why anyone thinks Gonzaga has any impact on the Valley.
