Sure. Played a big role for his last school (Wofford) too. Wish we could have recruited him here last spring but he obviously wanted to stay in that region.
Probably because it is the safer move. I wonder if Few left would he become another Dan Monson?
I think mid-major doesn't really carry a lot of weight/meaning any more and hasn't for a while. Once Gonzaga got it rolling and established their brand, there wasn't really a lot of reason for Few to leave and I can't recall him ever really being viewed as close to leaving (even when his name surfaced at UCLA). And now Saint Mary's is trending that direction. There are coaches every year who become the next hot name, who maybe are thought of as leading mid-major programs, like Pasternack at UCSB, Bob Richey/Furman, and Pat Kelsey who's been mentioned plenty here. But I think most no longer view a few programs like Gonzaga as mid-major programs at all. Even a Creighton or a San Diego State. A move from Cleveland State to Missouri, okay. . .but some others are not as clear cut.Probably because it is the safer move. I wonder if Few left would he become another Dan Monson?
To see a team lose on Weakling Wednesday and then pop up in the NCAA tournament would literally make me sick. It would be a joke, a travestry. Please, no. I don't care who it is. I wouldn't want to see the Gophers rewarded in their situation.I learned long ago to never mock Wisconsin before the game is actually over, especially when they are playing a crummy team like Ohio State. This was a predictable closer finish. I mean, Ohio State couldn't even beat the Gophers!
Fantastic to see the Badgers lose because they dug such a giant hole for themselves. But I'm fully prepared to see their name in the play-in game. (Maybe the barfing emoji would be better....)
They have been in steady decline for three or four years. I doubt that they can him but it’s not out of the question.On the subject of the Badgers, I feel like there's a nonzero chance they'll dump Gard. This season has to have their administration embarrassed and fuming in Madison.

Just turned on the TV and the highlights of the OSU vs dinks on the BIG Network after the shitscosin loss had their record at 17-114 at the final score graphic. Yes, 114. Just made me feel comfortable.
I wouldn’t say no to a regular season championship, but they are declining in the eye test and unbalanced schedules are devaluing the regular season championship. Not sure what the analytics say, but they don’t have the bigs who can play on the perimeter or the consistent shooters the program relied on in its heights.They were Big Ten champions last year. And, in 2020.
That's 2 Big Ten titles in that three or four year steady decline. Not bad.
That's it. Thanks for making my day even better.

I think Michigan has a case; Wisconsin, NFW.Michigan loses its tournament opener to Rutgers (62-50) to finish 17-15. Michigan, in addition to Wisconsin, shouldn't make the NCAA tournament either. Otherwise the committee is just declaring that certain teams will get an invite whether they have a good or mediocre year.
Shouldn't Illinois be a better team with all of this talent? Or is that just me?
