Eastern Tennessee state just lost, so I believe that makes us the longest active win streak in the country

"[Cincinnati] are, in short, where they belong, and with a great coach they have been topping out with relatively successful seasons. It is good for them, but it is not good enough for UConn."

What a colossal myopic douche bag. You know for half a second I kind of felt bad for UCONN and wanted them to improve into a good team for the league but **** that. I Hope they are terrible forever and slide back into obscurity like UNLV.

Is the Big 10 Tournament a week early with the mid majors? Did I hear that right? I don't remember where I heard that but what is that all about?

Yes, that is correct. I believe itís at MSG and BIG East as priority.

That's also why they had two play a couple of conference games back in early December.

UCONN's biggest problem isn't Kevin Ollie or The American. Their biggest problem is playing basketball. They are a bad team with a few good players, and seemingly love playing hero ball. All you need to do is look at how many assist they get on average. The American has made strides without UCONN and Memphis. If they think leaving the American and going to The Big East will somehow all of a sudden make them great again then they are more disillusioned than any fanbase in all of college basketball.

I would love for Memphis to do well again, which I think they will, but at this point UCONN is close to insufferable. When UC and UCONN went to the American they could have both stayed on track. Hopefully everyone in the league keeps getting better, and maybe UCONN will too. Then when the Big 12 expands/breaks up we'll see where the pieces fall.

Regarding your first paragraph, how does that not come down to coaching? He has been terrible since Napier graduated. His teams with the players he recruited have been mediocre at best.

That's going to be so weird. Oh well, I'll be in Vegas watching UC and being forced to watch KU with those fans. Might even head to the Pac 12 Tournament bc a couple Arizona fans are tagging along as well. It's coming up so fast!
