I looked up Marty and to my surprise he hasn't been awful. He's just all over the board. Some good years, some ok years, and some really bad years all sprinkled around his resume. Remember two years ago they were a lucky UNI bounce away from going to the NCAAs. Is he a great coach? No. Has he done well enough to keep his job for a decade? Guess so.

    Yeah a little better run of things than I thought. His overall record (similar to this year) has benefited from weak scheduling. I look more at what he's done in the Mo Val and I see only 2 winning seasons and 3 right at .500 - I'm not quite sure how that compares to Lansing but I'd guess Lansing has a little higher conference winning percentage than that?

    Is it reasonable to think that we would have won 10 more conference games with Ryan and Balentine on our roster?

    I think you would have gotten 10 extra with just Ryan. Ryan paired with Jake Odum would have been downright scary.

    Too bad that TH/ISU "urban redevelopment" has removed the once-flourishing "red light district," because GL could've used such a line last week in three (3) of his half-time "pep" talks!

    Also, any college that has to use "pay to play" tournaments (CBI/CIT) to pad a resume is simply camouflaging DESPERATION.

    Today we had Bradley, Indiana State, Missouri State, Illinois State, Northern Iowa all winners for the conference. UNI had the win of the day, taking down SMU in the opening round of the Battle for Atlantis. Evansville nearly beat LTECH as it took a last second (literally 1 second on the clock) 3-pointer to down the Aces by 2 today.

    The MVC improves to 35-11 today with the wins

    One game on tap tomorrow but it's a big one with UNI taking on NC State.

    Did anyone see this finish @ Providence? Belmont, which beat Vandy last week in front of a sellout crowd, loses to the Friars on a last second shot:

    Why the MVC didn't/couldn't entice Belmont into the conference (along w/ Murray St.) just shows the narrow mindedness of this conference...

    From what I've heard the MVC has went after Belmont twice (after Creighton left and after Wichita left). Belmont has turned the MVC down both times supposedly because of travel. More or less I think they like being the big fish in the little pond. They are pretty much guaranteed a NIT bid and a double bye in their tournament every year. Murray State on the other hand wants in, but the conference has made it very clear that they need a 12th team, because they say 11 doesn't work.

    From what I've heard Milwaukee, Oral Roberts, and Northern Kentucky seem like the top contenders for that 12th spot. I know that one of the associate commissioners said that the conference wants to expand to 12 and that they still have a search committee looking for potential members. St Louis also has no real interest in joining. I'd almost like to see us go to 14 and add North Dakota State and South Dakota State as well.

    Honestly I'd like to see us just go to 11 with Murray State. The scheduling might be difficult, but having 2 extra guaranteed games would probably help most of the schools out in the league and I still like having the round robin schedule. That and it would keep travel down. And at the very worst if the Summit schools and YSU ever left the MVFC we would still have enough teams for an AQ to the FCS playoffs.
