    Paper this morning noted that last Saturday was the first time in the history of the AP Poll that the top 6 teams all lost on the same day.

    Most I have heard is $25,000

    As Michigan should do to Howard.

    Let's hope so! He is clearly in over his head!

    Yeah, NCAA has UConn bias. It's headquartered in Bristol, CT.

    NCAA: Geno Auriemma responds to Muffet McGraw's bias claims (yahoo.com)

    It appears Muffet McGraw touched a nerve.

    Less than two weeks after the retired Notre Dame head coach complained of ESPN being supposedly biased toward Connecticut, Huskies head coach Geno Auriemma responded with a series of comments defending his program and lashing out at his former colleague.

    Suddenly lots of games canceled due to COVID issues. CBS Classic in Las Vegas tomorrow was to feature UNC-UCLA and UK-Ohio St. Now UCLA and Ohio St out due to COVID so my Heels will face my Mom's Wildcats.

    I agree, but doubt it will ever happen. Basketball has so many more games, and a loss has less of an impact on their rankings. A single loss in football can remove you from a chance to compete for a national title. And my personal feeling is that the losing team in a close basketball is penalized far less than in a football game.
    Penalized little at all. And nothing like football....which is a good thing. Also win your conference tournament and you're in.

    It seems that most Pre New Years contests are largely forgotten about in basketball. Does the Duke/Gonzaga game amount to anything other than being a really enjoyable game to watch 3-4 months from now? Not really. Doubtful that either of those teams needs that game to get into the tournament. Dayton over Kansas? May mean more.

    You’re spot on about that.
