    The way Dixon rides the officials he is going to dominate the Pac 10 with that blue blood logo on his players jerseys instead of TCU.

    I'll be shocked if they don't win the conference in year 2.

    What's better, being in the tournament, or not being in the tournament? The Big 12 has had a Final Four participant 3 years in a row.

    You can't have a weaker conference and continue to get 6/10 teams in the tournament. It won't happen. If the conference is weaker, the conference wins will carry less weight in the metrics used to select the tourney field, and that is going to decrease the number of teams that get in.

    Oh I meant it in agreement with you. I heard a hilarious radio skit this morning where people on the street were raving about wanting diet books from Oprah because she's Oprah.

    I remember Ku fans several years back saying their lack of success in the NCAA was directly due to their lack of B12 competition. I also have long thought that Gonzaga's issues are in some large part due to their lack of conference competition. Nothing prepares teams for the dance like a tough league. Last year 3 of the E8 were B12. Last year was the strongest league top to bottom perhaps ever.

    If you don't count the Big 8 portion of its history, I agree. 1988, with 3 of the Elite Eight, two in the Final Four, and two in the championship game, would be hard to beat.

    He about has to go now. Someone at UCLA has to have some money to pay that.

    Agreed. I don't know how he stays put at this point. UCLA, Dixon and TCU all look bad in that scenario. I think they'll find a way to make it happen whether it's UCLA ponying up or Dixon negotiating a reduced buyout, or both.

    Source? All I see related to that is a random guy on Twitter who posted that but then just posted that Calipari is going to be the next TCU coach.

    KU's lack of success in the tournament is related to the fact that they get coddled by the officials all year and can't handle adversity when the refs don't bail them out.

    Dixon is a wildly overrated coach. I can’t believe this years team couldn’t make the tourney. Don’t assume TCU takes a big drop after he leaves.
