Vandy is now 1-7 in games decided by 5 points or less, or in overtime. Six of those eight games have been in conference play. Had we won those games at the same clip we were winning close games in CKS' VU tenure prior to this season, VU would be 15-10 overall, and 8-5 in the conference. That would be good for 4th in the SEC at this juncture. How much better would you feel?Yeah, the conference is lousy this year. No, not all of the losses have been buzzer beaters, and some were not as close as the final score appears. But to paraphrase the legendary tattoo of the great Bobby Maze, let's hope that "stuggles have made us" a better team over the next two years.

We have a lot to sell to a top level recruit - great basketball fanbase, great city, great education, iconic home court, good facilities, good rivalry games, nearly every game on tv, etc.

Or the selection committee when they give a 29-2 team a 12 seed because they are in a small conference. Or the New York Giants when they go from an 8-8 regular season to Super Bowl champs.

Same is true for the women and the 5000 offensive play book is stupid. Run 15 to 20 plays great and recruit good players and ypu will attract the best to the best University. I feel many dont believe the Franklin theory Vandy is the best. You should hear the outgoing seniors praise the football changes and the unlimited ceiling! Stop putting a limit on Basketball folks and wake up!

I, personally, like it as it is part of what makes the tournament the most exciting sporting event.And you can't tell me that the Georgetown fans are happy with their 85 season result b/c they had a great record (thusly were a great team) but the Nova fans aren't b/c they are only remembered as a "mediocre" champion.

Georgetown was not merely the #1 ranked team in the country, but probably one of the 4 or 5 best teams since the end of the UCLA era.In an "average" year (like this year for example), while it is certainly unlikely for a low seeded team to run 6 straight wins, once they get into the final four I can see a mediocre team pulling the upsets.

Doreboy wrote: I agree that college football generally gets close to being right. But remember, we were awfully close to a Notre Dame-Oregon/K-State national champion. Only people that would've been happy there would've been the champion.The EPL is the real model. Long season, points awarded for win/tie, and the winner is the team that accumulates the most points. And people go CRAZY when they win. I think American culture wants a "moment" where a champion is clearly identified - there is no fun in Man U clinching the title with 5 games to play with a 4-0 beatdown of QPR. You maybe could say the same thing w/ old baseball playoffs, but even they have changed to the point where teams that barely make it end up winning the world series. We are a nation of underdogs and we like our underdogs to have a chance to be the champion every once in a while.
