Ypsi, you keep saying ďin MIA we trustĒ. What do you trust? Her teams have won 1 NCAA game in 6 years. Thatís coming off 2 Final Four appearances. With all the talent you keep harping about, whatís the problem. This year 4 all conference players. I agree, lot of talent, but not enough NCAA tourney wins. This year big letdown, and winning in the CCIW isnít that hard lately. Only 1 or 2 good teams each year lately.

Great game in St.louis. The team that won the game might have surprised most,but the fact that is was a great game shouldn't have surprised anybody,with over 1,100 wins between to very good coaches.

I believe Mr. Nelson will play. Iwu needs him to play like we have seen in the past.
I do think that this be be a difficult game to win, with or without him. IWU non conference
schedule wasn't filled with a lot of power programs. All that is going to change very quick.
Bigger game for the home team, but all games are big now. With 3 losses already, and I think
at least 3 or 4 more during the rugged conference season, pool C bids might be wishful thinking.
Long way to go, it will be fun, always is.

Left Salem before the final game, but on Friday, I sure didn't see a whole lot of local fans at the game.
There was a lot of empty seats.
It has been talked about before, but it's time to move on. I've been to Salem 6 times now, the buzz for the locals is gone.
Yes, they do a great job, both running the event, and treating the teams like champs. The gym was half empty, and IWU travels well. It hurt that UWW had both teams playing in the final four, but not half the gym.
I don't have a place in mind, but I think it could us a new look.
Maybe the local fans thought that since the NCAA didn't charge to get into last years final game, they didn't want to pay this year, can't say I would blame them.

Even if no foul would have been called in the final seconds of the IWU-Webster game, they still had to make a shot to win it. That foul didn't decide the game.

The start to final four weekend has not started well for the Titans. Flight cancelled out of Chicago, couldn't get next one either.
No truth to the rumor, that the pilot is a Webster Alum, and refused to fly team.

NCAA D-1 has a 64 team tournament format that has 68 teams
NCAA D-3 has a 64 team tournament format that has 62 teams
I really like both tournaments,  but you can't have play in games to get in the big dance, they just played 25, and sometimes more games to decide who should be in.
And having teams get a bye in the D-3 dance is just dumb.
Yes, I know why, money, greed will bring them down.

Ron Wellman also has Bloomington/Normal ties.
He was the Athletic Director at Illinois State University.

The Shirk will not be cleared between games. It doesn't seat 2700, lots of standing room all the way around the playing court.  On well attended games, there is usually 150/200 people standing, which isn't a bad view.

This happened two years ago, in the CCIW conference tourney. IWU lost to Augie, then really didn't care who won the next night. Fans and players both. Much smaller crowd.
Hopefully with a little more help from the refs, IWU will advance to the elite eight.
Just kidding Denny McKinney

Due to the miles, and seeding, I have to have IWU hosting.

I'm not like most IWU fans, I don't want to see 4 CCIW teams make it. Why would we want teams in the tourney that we know can knock us out. Sorry Augie, sorry Carthage, but this is personal.

After Saturdays game, the phrase "treated us like a rented mule" kept popping into my mind. Congrats to Wheaton.
