    No doubt, I think next time I'm sticking to sports betting where I have a fighting chance at least. Everything else I tried cleaned my clock pretty quick.

    How irrelevant has the NIT become? Quick. Name the two teams in the championship game.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    I actually have no idea. I'm going to guess Drexel vs. Washington. How'd I do?

    I could not care less about the women's NCAA either. Hope that doesn't make me a hater.

    Thanks! The payout is actually pretty good if you end up being the winner of my work pool so I'm hoping my good fortune carries over into the championship this weekend and Monday.

    I haven't watched a second of the NIT. I doubt I will tonight either. I don't believe I have watched an NIT game since Kentucky was in it a few years back when BCG was still the coach. Thank goodness those days are over.

    Proving that you really can never have nice things as a mid-major, John Groce leaves Ohio University to become the coach at Illinois.

    Athens Ohio can resume become an obscure spot that generates a lot of arrests on Halloween.

    Athens should be a hot spot right now. A team with every remaining starting coming back off a Sweet 16 team. That should be an up and coming coaches dream. They win big next season and the major job offers start coming.

    Should be, but the types of coaches you're looking at for a school like Ohio are all completely unproven and almost entirely guesswork. You're stuck trying to figure out what type of leader they would be based on a body of work that usually includes nothing beyond assistant work.

    It's a total crap chute. I went to a mid-major school that had a successful coach poached away. We whiffed on the follow-up hire (and the follow-up hire to THAT hire), and the program was set so far back that it still really hasn't recovered.

    I'd guess Boals takes over. And while I obviously can't prove it, I think he'll be an upgrade to Groce in Athens.

    The interesting thing in regards to Groce will be Chicago recruiting. The high school coaches in Chicago wanted a minority to be hired at Illinois.

    Crazy part is, most of the qualified minorities turned them down.
