Is there some point when they have to respond?


They make up there own rules as they go along, so no.

Is that Peruna's law talking or do you have a friend who works for the ncaa?

It's a Fifth Chance. Second Chance on the Second Shot, Third Chance on the First Shot. 2 + 3 = 5

As others have noted, this schedule is all about qualifying for the NIT, not the NCAA. It is great that TJ players come to his defense, I would expect most players to defend their coach. I never believed that TJ was going to sustain the success of this program under LB. His coaching record speaks for itself. I don't have anything against the guy, he probably is a nice person, but he is not capable of maintaining a top program. If our goal is qualifying for the NIT, then he is the right guy for the job.

The AD is also, largely, responsible for the demise of our bball program.

Not true. If we can go undefeated, maybe one loss to Cincy or Memphis, we will be NCAA bound this year. (tongue in cheek)...

I think this league has garnered enough of a reputation where if we go undefeated in non-conference play and then finish 13-5 in conference play we get an at-large bid. I really think that is very doable if we get at least one of the two waivers and Jasey contributes as expected.

That sunshine is blinding me. No brainer that your scenario would result in a bid but I will admit I've been blinded by the light.

I agree. I imagine we would even be at least a 10 seed in that scenario.

That is with Jasey and at least one of Davis or McNeill. I think we have a good roster that is playing good defense and rebounding. Two things that were missing the last couple seasons.
