LaVar Ball -- in another attempt to win the Worst Dad of the Year ESPY -- pulled LiAngelo out of UCLA because he wasn't playing. How can he even do that? LiAngelo is an adult! Apparently LaVar is going to train LiAngelo himself to get ready for the draft... even though he isn't on anyone's draft radar. I feel bad for this kid, even more than I did for Lonzo.

I'm jumping on board the Big Baller Brand train. Currently in talks with BBB on a 4 figure deal for "LaWaterhead Ball Orthopedic Shoe". LaWabos "For the casual fan in the stands with a bad back and sore knees".

Wasn't sure where to put this, and didn't think it deserved it's own thread.

Think this is a positive change, albeit RPI needs to just die. Interested to see how these new team sheets affects seeding etc.

I posted this a while back in another thread. Basically they are calling tier one a top 50 neutral game which is equal to a top 30 home game or a top 75 road game. Fortunately we play all the top ranked teams in the AAC (per Kenpom right now) twice. The only team we play twice outside the top 100 would be Memphis. We only get Tulsa, USF, ECU, and Tulane once.

WSU, SMU, Temple, Houston, UCF, UCONN. Current Kenpom rankings are probably much better at looking at where future RPI rankings might land. We have 6 teams in the top 75 right now in Kenpom. Those away games are all tier 1 right now. Uconn is 90 or so.

KU just lost their 2nd game in a row. Both at home. One game they couldn't score, one they couldn't defend. Sh*t happens in college basketball.

What has he done in the tournament over the last 10 years? Good one mate. Don't act like an idiot and try to compare the two situations. We both know you're smarter than that.
