I hope to god we can get a sellout....same crap happened in '03/'04....screwed on Selection Sunday and our first round NIT game was at home vs. Old Dominion I believe.....
I remember being about 1 of 15 students in attendance along with 500 other people max.....we lost by 25 points that day
Stupid theory...absolutely stupid
It was 05-06 and we lost by 18. I walked in after halftime without a ticket. More than 500 were in there though
Just looked it up, CUBuffs.com says the attendance was 2890.
I feel with this team we can get quite a few fans, I plan on going to at least one NIT game.
Most conspiracy theories are. The exclusion of CU in the field of 64 is even stupider. There has to be an explanation.
Can't beat 6 top 50 teams without playing them, dumbass....
I seem to remember us kicking your arrogant red asses too.
Go **** yourself all the way to the Big Te, er Eleve, er uh we can't actually count that ****ing high. You'll all fit right in.
GTFO with that weak shiznit. We finished 5th in the Big 12 and made it to the conference semi finals. We beat KSU three times, twice in Kansas. We beat Missouri, ranked #9 at the time. We beat Texas, who was ranked #3 at the time. We played a plenty tough schedule thank you very much. One helluva lot tougher than Virginia Commonwealth, UAB, etc.
Even Mel Gibson wouldn't subscribe to that one....and if there is more than 4000 people at the CEC for the NIT, Id be shocked
:lol2: A fusker fan lecturing on OOC strength of schedule.
"We went to bowls for XX number of years." Not hard to get six wins a year in football when four of them are East Central Barber College, The University of Northern Alaska, St. Desperation, and The Central Kansas College for Amputees and Neuromuscular Diseases.
Oh by the way, which bracket are the mighty Cornhuskers in? We have an argument about being left out, KU doesn't.
Then it's time to rally!
puke and rally?
Well, at least I'm doing it in the right order...
Bohn wanted us in the NCAAs. No doubt.
Hopefully we'll rally and be a great NIT site now, though. I know I'll be there.
BCS must've hacked Sacky's account.
The early losses to a few teams away like Georgia and Harvard, and the schedule were good reasons. I am as upset as anyone, but to me the loss that really killed us was away at Iowa State. I can ever remember commentary at the time that the game would be a dagger in the heart of the tournament chances.
The explanation is that southern/eastern money talks
Name one wealthy advocate for CU sports.
I'll fully admit I'm grasping at straws with this one. I am convinced that there's more to this story than "ooooh, they were really close, but we just thought Virginia Commonwealth was a better choice". Think about it.
Speaking of VCU, it looks like Toby Veal is in the NCAA tourney.
Bohn is a lightweight who is in over his head. We need a REAL AD. I detest Mike Bohn.
you are right on
Our stupid assed senators should call the NCAA to the table.
Oh boy, DBT in full meltdown mode. Fun times ahead.
Yea, looking at their schedule makes VCU look questionable. Also the guys on ESPN were very direct on USC not being worthy.
Although the list of committee members wouldn't necessarily suggest it, the decisions are politically driven one way or another.
List of committee members:
Gene Smith† Ohio State University Athletic Director
Mike Bobinski Xavier University Athletic Director
Ron Wellman Wake Forest University Athletic Director
Jeff Hathaway University of Connecticut Athletic Director
Lynn Hickey University of Texas at San Antonio Athletic Director
Doug Fullerton Big Sky Conference Commissioner
Scott Barnes Utah State University Athletic Director
Stan Morrison University of California, Riverside Athletic Director
Dan Beebe Big 12 Conference Commissioner
Steve Orsini Southern Methodist University Athletic Director
Someone made a point on ESPNU's "The Experts" that it would make sense to have at least a couple basketball minds on there. He suggested Bobby Knight, John Thompson and John Chaney. Works for me.
Some of the ESPN guys like Vitale and Bilas have been pushing for this for a number of years now. And I completely agree.
Dan Beebe is on the committee? That pretty much seals it as far as I'm concerned. This was a screw job from the get-go.
Right, Beebe would screw a team that would still bring revenue to his own conference. :rolling_eyes:
no, but he sure wouldn't fight for a team from a school that just said his conference sucked and was leaving. Cu and NU made beebe look like a total idot, as did Larry Scott. No way he fought for us. This is just one last snide dagger in the back.
