    If you didn't already know... The Thursday Night Debochery

    St Louis's miraculous turnaround was actually a strike by a Wichita State administrator by the name "Marty". He wrote a program that was automatically voting for St. Louis. We BEAT A COMPUTER! But danger lies ahead for us. They were dq'd for using the program. And they are threatening to use it for us/ against us all tournament. So we need two of two things to happen:
    1. Email CBS the article of their pre-emptive strike
    2. Fight off any attacks against us

    First of all, it's CBS Sportsline Spin, not SI.. (unless I missed something)

    Second.... there's not a ton we can do if they are going to flood in votes towards us.. we could attempt to vote for the Chanticleers to try to make the vote more balanced... but that's a long shot.

    But yeah... people, try to contact CBS Sportsline Spin or whatever.

    The best/only thing we really can do is inform SPiN that Wichita State is threatening on doing this, and sending them a link of the thread that states this. Everyone should send this information to them ASAP so that they don't think that we would do something like this.

    I don't think we have to worry about losing now, only if they decide to dq us.

    We can always still try to defeat WSU again... by voting against ourselves to even the score (a litte... don't get me wrong I"m not advicating losing, just making our victory look less like we're cheating, or someone is cheating for us)
    Bizarre tactic I know but... we have a cunning enemy to defeat so we need something a little bizzare and crazy

    They tried to make it an easier 2nd round win for themselves by writing a ****** and running it on multiple computers to vote/change votes for the Billikens against us. They saw our huge voter turnout and were threatened, and tried to eliminate the biggest threat they saw. We responded and took them out. Now they are jealous!

    First Wichita State is stripped of their national cheerleading title for using an illegal cheerleader, and now this. It's enough to make you sick.

    They might be looking at the death penalty for this one.

    Re: If you didn't already know... The Thursday Night Debochery

    Can someone explain to me what the NCAA "death penalty" is exactly? Is it like what happened to Baylor after the MBB player murdered his roommate, or is there more to it than that?

    No, the fabled NCAA "death penalty" is what happened to SMU back in 1987. SMU had been on probation seven times, including for the last three years, and there were widespread violations of players getting paid...something like 21 players got about $60,000 in payments. The NCAA banned them from play completely in 1987, and couldn't play home games in 1988. They were banned from the postseason for 88 and 89, their probation extended to 1990, lost over 50 scholarships, and were limited to 5 assistant coaches instead of 9. The collapse of the former SWC (Which Texas, A&M, Texas Tech, and Baylor came from to join the Big 12) is attributed largely to the rampant recruiting violations in the conference which peaked with SMU's "Death Penalty"
