Excellent article, thanks. College football and basketball are stacked in favor of the Power 6 with their ultimate goal getting ALL the money generated by both. I wish Adams and co. good luck.

These mid-majors just need to accept their fate and get over it. Most of them are never going to realistically have a shot at a NCAA title, and they need to be ok with that. The article mentions the difference between a 14-seed and an 11-seed.

Here are this past years 11-seed first round opponents and the 14-seed first round opponents:

11-Seed: Miami(FL), Houston, TCU, Florida
14-Seed: Tennessee, Michigan, Michigan State, Texas Tech

They are doing this to argue that they should be playing a team like Florida instead of Texas Tech. Doesn't make sense to me.

What is trying to manipulate the system really going to get them? They want to put their 4 best teams in a round robin at the end of the year....how isn't that basically the same thing as a conference tournament?

The Big East is one of the Power 6 so far and when we are considered mid major then I'll be more interested in this issue.;)

This is the disgusting truth about college basketball. It is a rigged system to line the pockets of the power conference schools.

Consider then that the best programs criminally cheat to pay players and their handlers with sneaker and apparel companies gladly footing the bill.

Even Competition? Hah. Least of anyone's concerns. We are the sheep in the seats at a school smart enough to recreate a power 6 conference, honest enough not to buy players, and cheap enough to pocket conference profits and not invest in a top coach (who becomes a top coach by buying players)

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
