    Fans at the WCC Tournament.

    Usually, the Orleans turns into Spokane South. I'm going to miss that this year.

    Also, it can't be nearly the revenue maker it would be without any fans. I know they are committed to playing at...

    P5 is a football term. I can't think of a season in the last many, many years where the Big East isn't better than at least one of the P5 football conferences, and usually several of them. In...

    My thoughts exactly. Prior to the move to Las Vegas in 2009, the WCC Tournament was played 20 times from the inception in 1987 until 2008. Most of those were played in San Francsico, Santa Clara, Los...

    No, not disingenuous, simply a well stated fact.

    The WCC would still be the 9th toughest league if you took out the Top team from each league. The A10 and the WCC would still be very close but would switch places.

    That WCC tho.

    With all of the hype around Gonzaga, I have just been becoming aware of how deep the league is this year. It's becoming tougher all the time.

    No. 1 Big 10
    No. 2 Big 12
    No. 3 ACC
    No. 4 SEC
    No....

    The natural result of playing league opponents. RB and other league coaches have the benefit of studying GU tape over a period of years. They have a much better idea of tendencies, etc.

    The league just seems to be getting better and better.

    It's brutal for the WCC IMO. GU was a National Championship contender and both BYU and SMC had enough juice to advance a game, maybe two.

    Tough to lose all that income.
