The X and Seton Hall games will be challenging as well as the Butler and Creighton games on the road. It was great to see them run through the Big 5 again with such ease. If Spellman can protect the rim and provide some beef when we play top 10 teams we can make a pretty good run. In the meantime, I will be enjoying each game in the hibernation section of the season.

As far as viewership is concerned, the gap continues to close as the country gets used to tuning into FS1 and the Big East. I have every confidence ESPN numbers will continue to erode while the Big East numbers increase again this year. Don't enter any Math contests Gannon! :)



Call me Kreskin. Funny to wait a few months and re-read the posts and to see who knows something and who just trolls. Butler and Creighton are really tough places to play and are always a struggle.The Creighton game Saturday was one of the most exciting games of the year. What an amazing crowd and place to play.

Cats need to take care of business in the BE tourney and secure the EAST #1 seed. (Hope to avoid St. Johns.) Looking forward to going to Boston this year.

If nova doesn't improve their defense they're in for a short stay come March. It's not been a great two months for nova, granted, they've had injury issues. You'd like to see a team getting better as March approaches, but that's not been the case here for nova.

Odd game last night - Both the Hall and Nova couldn't shoot at all. Not sure it was the defense, but at least on paper it goes down as one of the best efforts all year. Improves their Kenpom figure too. Keeps the "not suffering two losses back to back" going. 176 straight games is a testament to how successful the program has been.

#1 in offense and top #25 for defense in Kenpom. Legit contender on paper.

Brunson has moved from facilitator first to look for my shot first. Didn't have any assists last night. Not good for a point guard. Omari Spellman is no Ochefu at this point in his career. Not as good a passer or rim protector. He can really shoot though. Lots of moving parts still but they still have some time to finish the product. Only two games back for Booth. They might need to get used to the old rotation again.

Hey, look, the Big East, yet again, struggles to get out of the first weekend. Again, just one team making it to the Sweet Sixteen. Thankfully, it's hometown nova getting through. Yet again, the Big East comes up small as a conference when it comes to March. Talk about being like Kreskin. :rofl:

**** Creighton.....entirely the most over hyped and over loved team in NCAA history.

Endless resources. All the bravado of Duke, UNC, Kansas, etc...

Only 2 times in their entire history have they won more than 2 games in an NCAA tournament....both times it was because it was so long ago they played regional consolation games.

1961-1962 they won 2...one of them being a regional third place game. It got them exactly nothing.
1973-1974 they won 2...one of them being a regional third place game. It got them exactly nothing.

They've literally never won 2 games in a row in the NCAA tournament.

Since that 1974 tournament Creighton has qualified for 17 NCAA tournaments. In those 17 tournaments they are 6-17. Three of those six wins came with Doug McDermott on their roster.

In 14 trips without Doug they are 3-14

That's **** pathetic. **** horrible. They are the definition of a paper tiger carried by some bullshit name that shouldn't have any actual weight behind it.

Pathetic little directional teachers college that didn't move D1 until 1981 - Northern Iowa - has more NCAA wins and S16s than Creighton in that time. Loyola - who replaced Creighton in the MVC - went 33 years between NCAA tournament bids and now has more S16s than Creighton.

I mean - holy ****
