I was a fan of Bobby Knight doing games at first but he's just awful anymore.

EDIT: It's really annoying that they're making a big deal about Stokes getting a public urination violation... Who really cares? That's a badge of honor if you ask me haha.

Also, while I'm still cranky over the UK loss... I just get annoyed with all the hype about the 'Cuse zone. I'm not saying it's not a good defense but it's hardly what they make it out to be. They're not even the best FG% defense in their own conference.

Nova has been disappointing as of late. Hopefully we can turn it around starting tonight, but it doesn't look good.

Kind of wondering if 'Cuse wins tonight if they're #1, I would assume so given the whole mentality that the most recent loser drops.
same with KU poor defense most of the game cost us that and even when we played good D they nailed tough 3's.Gallagher Iba is an impossible place to win

Sucks for us. The officiating definitely sucked in ours (1st half), that's what got them out on the big run but the horrible defense only prolonged things. I didn't see the KU game honestly but it sounds like it went exactly the same way as ours lol. I will say when UK things with 1:30 left or whatever I thought they were leaving with a W.

Syracuse should definitely be #1 after today.

Help a reporter out and read (or just click on) my story about tonight's OU-IPFW game:

There have been some nice wins but most of the year has been them being ranked high because they started high and haven't lost much.

In terms of why they're losing, basically comes down to one thing for the most part. This is a team that fouls WAY too much. On occasion they can afford to in terms of guys getting into foul trouble because the team goes 10 or 11 deep on any given night, but other teams win the free throw shooting battle by a lot and it makes it tough to overcome. When teams win the rebounding battle significantly also (like 'Cuse did) then things get ugly.

Another major issue is that the defense, to put it bluntly, sucks. They played well the last 2 games before this one so I started to get hopeful but after this game I see nothing's change. Coach Wright's scheme is actually pretty good and was tremendous last year but the team isn't cohesive enough to run it well and it's better for a veteran team, so what was a strength last year and carried the team through the tournament is now a major weakness. The veteran leadership is really missed, though this team is more talented than the teams the past 2 years.

Only encouraging thing to take out of tonight's game was Mouph Yarou's play...think he's going to be a force before he leaves.

I still think Villanova is a serious Final Four contender. As long as they have Scottie Reynolds they can be a dangerous team.

It's really unfortunate that in the Indiana/Iowa game someone has to be awarded a win (no offense Iowatreat lol, you know how it is).

MSU/Purdue seem to be playing pretty even now. Sucks I missed the Richmond-Xavier game, the A10 is pretty strong this year.

Big East teams are the best at playing against the zone because the opponents have seen it twice a year for their entire career and coaches like Calhoun, Pitino, Wright, and any BE coach know what to do. Watch the zone during the NCAA Tournament. Look at it in 2003. 'Cuse straight smacked Oklahoma in the regional final, in fact, in the '03 tourney they beat OKst, OU, Texas, and Kansas.

It's tough to prepare for when you have never seen it. Just saying it's a nice when it takes significant time for a team to figure out the zone. Cuse Nation is buzzing and this team is loved by the community.

It's just a special season right now.

****, with all the hockey I forgot about this epic game.

Battle for last place in the Big XI!!!! With PSU gaining their 3rd win in conference, whoever loses here is tied for last.

Hopefully we can get our elusive 10th win!

Also, suck it Kentucky. We're shooting 8% from 3 and still winning. That's how real teams play!!!!

It's tough to prepare for when you have never seen it. Just saying it's a nice when it takes significant time for a team to figure out the zone. Cuse Nation is buzzing and this team is loved by the community.

It's just a special season right now.
The thing is, that's the case with every team figuring out their conference opponents. They're the 4th best FG% defense in the conference. I'm not saying the defense isn't good nor am I acting like Syracuse is overrated. It's just that it seems since they are about the only team to exclusively run zone, if they have success the zone is what gets the credit.

They are 2nd in the entire country in FG% offense yet everyone acts like they're good because of the zone. A zone is a zone, either it's extended or packed in... There are obviously other gimmicks to it but a zone is a zone. Their length makes things harder but it also would make things hard man-to-man. They are a good team, it's not the fact that they play zone that makes them that way. They deserve to be #1 tomorrow, I feel like they at times in the polls have been overlooked this season.... That will certainly not be the case tomorrow.

Wooooo 10 wins!!!! I'll admit, I never thought this day would come. I had us pegged for 5-6 wins and no Big XI wins. Well done boys!
