    That's pretty underwhelming.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Bold move, I guess.

    And don't worry about the forum thing. No big deal there.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I drive past Loyola's campus everyday to work and I will admit, they do have some fine looking ladies. So, I guess that's a positive.
    I also drive by Northwestern's campus everyday and I always wonder how they are a Big 10 school.

    They were smart enough to get in when the conference was founded?

    Re: Loyola to replace Creighton in the Valley

    I have no idea how no teams in the Chicago area of Illinois have been very competitive lately. Even consistently getting third or fourth tier local talent should make a team very competitive. Not saying Loyola suddenly becomes great instantly in a better conference but Illinois, NW, DePaul, NIU and UIC have all left the door completely wide open. Marquette is probably the only school in the region as competitive as it should be given the talent pool.
