Normally that would be the case, but apparently it doesn't apply when the school they transferred from is ineligible for the next season. Oriakhi is looking to transfer and the reports are that he won't have to sit out because UConn is ineligible.

I guess that means nobodies fixing their test scores anymore, because like I said before, there's not way 2/3 of the kids on their last Championship squad could pass any course more difficult than, "Sign your name (an X doesnt count) 101".

Wow. That completely defeats the purpose.

So let me get this straight.

UConn can't play basketball because a group of 15 or so individuals, as a whole, can't pass a test. So, you punish the entire university - the coach, the fans, etc - and then you allow those 15 individuals to transfer with no restrictions if they elect to do so. So now UConn is forced to field a team of 15 players, who have nothing to do with the inelgibility, yet they can't play in the tournaments. Meanwhile, 15 jack ***** who can't read are playing on 15 new teams, all eligible to play.

Ridiculous.

Well actually the coach could leave and coach another team without penalty. That's what is really messed up. The players who did well in their classes and possible future players are the ones who really get screwed by either having to go to another school or staying and being punished.

There are no great teams this year, and all 4 of the #1s could probably be #3s some years = this should be an excitingly unpredictable tournament.

Damn shame St. Mary's couldn't pull it off at the end. That ended my bracket perfection

If Davidson holds on I'm still doing fine though.

Welp... Davidson and St. Mary's were both teams I had going out next round anyway (would have had St. Mary's going farther in an earlier version of my bracket), so its not terrible. But those would have been some nice points to grab

God damn Davidson for blowing that lead. Lucky I had neither team beating Butler.

Gonzaga is scaring me a bit. I have them bowing out in the sweet 16, but I am wondering if that was giving them to much credit

I really wanted them to pull that one off. Partly for history, partly because I have Gonzaga out in the sweet 16 anyway. Would have hurt others more than me.

Harvard is a top 10 three point shooting team in the nation.

NM is 328th in three point defense.

I had Belmont beating Arizona and then beating NM for the same reason. I just had it backwards. Harvard will beat Arizona.
