    Felt this game deserves its own thread.

    I'll admit, didn't think Shaka could get us more than 1 win in this tourney, so good for him.

    Looking forward to bringing home the NIT Championship home. Things could be worse. :hookem:

    Can we just give the trophy to aggy?

    Their trophy case seems lonely.

    Lipscomb is 2-2 against teams in the RPI Top 50. Soon to be 2-3, baby!

    Nothing like being guaranteed the 69th or 70th best spot in a sport.

    I'm surprised they haven't been crying to the aggys in theTexas Congress to pass a law that they get to borrow our NC trophies to put in their hall of shame, with the UT name covered up of course.

    Undoubtedly, they would display them upside down

    Let's be positive; there are far more school playing D-1 basketball than D-1 football. Not sure of the numbers, but I think being 70th in basketball is the equivalent of being maybe #51-53 in football.

    I think that would get Herman or Strong or Brown, or even DKR fired regardless of buyout anount.

    There are 351 division I NCAA basketball teams, so finishing 69th or 70th would be in the top 20% or to equate to football, it would be 25th in the top 25.

    We are favored (-1.5), however, most of the picking services are taking the points and the Lip (Odd Shark, Sportchat and Bang the Book/Chris Lombardi)

    For well over 30 years, I have been a proponent of only allowing schools with D-1 football teams to participate in D-1 basketball.
