I said I donít think there is much difference. Never said players. Of course players want to play. As a fan there is virtually no difference

How wouldnít it hurt recruiting? If we are recruiting against a team that has more tourney success, you donít think that is brought up? You donít think Houston increased their profile by playing in the sweet 16 this year?

I disagree that this would be the case, only because if they don't make the tournament those other years it means they were a team really struggling to beat their schedule. Who would look forward to that?

Consistency of winning is really hard to maintain, given all the competition at every turn. I bet players are happy that they've consistently found a way to win enough games to get to the tournament. Of course, everyone wants a final four, but a full season of winning is something really satisfying and achievable in the right program.

But itís vtech. He would be out of there in 5 years or less. Good luck

I'll disagree. I love knowing that it's just a matter of when and where on selection Sunday, not if. Love becoming "sick" the day Cincy plays and calling out of work. And yes I love the sorrow drowning booze fest that typically follows the game. As a fan, that is still enjoyable to me and something many programs would kill for.

I disagree on a fan base too. Start a poll would love to see these results. You sound confident too so Iíd be down to wager

Exactly and if we arenít making the tournament that would correlate with a shitty regular season and that would absolutely suck too. This dude is talking reckless. Again, I want to advance, but to picture not in the tournament is sickening

UCLA favors two candidates to fill their head coaching position: TCU's Jamie Dixon and Cincinnati's Mick Cronin.

Have to think if he gets offered the UCLA job, he is gone.

As a fan I wouldnít trade what we have for S16s but I would be willing to give up 2-3 years of making the dance for a final 4 and I would give double that for a NC.

To piggyback on that, other more high profile coaches turned UCLA away so has to be mutual interest at this point.
