How precipitious has the Golden Eagles' fall been? For years they were always a decent mid-major program with the occasional really good season. In 2011, just three years ago, they went 12-2, winning the C-USA title and defeating a decent Nevada squad in the Hawaii Bowl. Then everything went to shit.
Larry Fedora split for UNC and since that 2011 Hawaii Bowl victory, USM has just TWO (2!) victories over their last 27 contests: a demolition of a 2-10 UAB squad in final week of 2013 and a 26-20 conquest of the Alcorn State Fighting Steve McNairs in week two of this season.
Why am I even bringing this up? Well, they are App State's next opponent and the Golden Eagles are only two-point(!!) favorites at home(!!!) against a pretty bad Mountaineers squad.

Don't forget that only two years ago MSU had a subpar season. Yes, they have an easy schedule (seriously, Neb, UM, and OSU at home...c'mon), but they aren't very far removed from barely beating a shitty TCU team just to avoid a sub-.500 record.
The other reason I don't see them making the CFP is their non-conference schedule is a joke. One legit team (Oregon) and three piles of shit (JSU, EMU & Wyoming). If they lose to the Ducks this weekend, they would need to win out the rest of the way to be in the conversation, and I do not see that happening with all the talent they lost.

So far in three Tournament games they're shooting 22.8% from long range.

Unlike football, college basketball referees officiate games across many conferences. You see the bigger names on a more consistent basis (TV Ted Valentine, Bo Boroski, Gene Steratore, Mike Kitts, etc.), but they're also reffing games in the ACC, Big 12, SEC, etc.
However, I want to say I remember reading somewhere that they have mandates from their superiors instructing them to call conferences certain ways based on the style of play in said conference. In the NCAA Tournament I have to imagine that all games, regardless of the teams' conference affiliation, will be called in the same fashion (as much as that is possible).

|27 weeks 3 hours ago||I would rather face Illinois||
In conference play they have the worst eFG% (43.3), built from the worst 2pt% (42.1) and third-worst 3pt% (30.4).
Yes, they are a better defensive team than Indiana, but I also think that some of their impressive showings down the stretch were at least partially a product of iffy offenses rather than all fantastic defense.

Ahh yes, I just went back to the Slickdeals page and the 20% coupon is now dead. However if you sign up for their rewards program you get free 3-day shipping.
Also, don't be surprised if your items arrive without getting a shipping notification email or a status change of your order. I received my package today (placed on Sun evening) despite my order still being listed as "Processing" on their site.

Some nice M stuff, though I took it as an opportunity to bolster my Red Wings and Tigers wardrobes.
For an extra 20% off, try coupon code 546638. Not sure if it's still valid but it did work for me on Sunday evening.

You know your conference sucks at basketball when the #3 seed is Georgia.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Elijah Johnson||
Elijah Johnson with one of the most punkass cheap shots you'll see in basketball. You'll recall that he's the one who missed the front-end foul shot that allowed Trey to come down and hit the game-tying three.
Karma is a real motherfucker, eh, Elijah?

He is going to have one of the worst Paymon Scores in this year's Matrix.

|27 weeks 6 days ago||Just watched the McCabe/Trice thing||
Trice definitely kept his arm up in McCabe's face to be annoying, you can just tell. That doesn't excuse McCabe's actions, although I do think that Trice exaggerated his fall.
The amount of ballsucking by Vitale throughout this game was just ridiculous.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Take care of Indiana and win||
Take care of Indiana and win a few games in the BTT, coupled with early ACC exits by Duke and Syracuse would be glorious.
Go UNC (Duke) tomorrow and FSU (Cuse) on Sunday.
Also, go Nebraska.

|27 weeks 6 days ago||Drew's Hackatology||
Closet Michigan-hater Drew's Bracketology continues his assault on reason, listing Michigan as the last 4-seed on his S-curve.
This is Drew's first year in the Matrix and with his offerings throughout the season, it looks like he's going to be far off the pace of the actual bracket. Laugh at guys like Luuunadrdiandiii and Palm all you want (well maybe not Palm, at least not for his brackets, but that hair), they are usually pretty close in their picks and seeds (not the best, but still good). Picking the actual teams isn't too hard; seeding is the tricky thing. Drew doesn't quite have that part down yet.
I commented on his last post, questioning his placement of Saint Louis so far ahead of Michigan, as well as Creighton, Cincy, and Duke.
