Play-in Game? What?
Posted by Steve Bzomowski on March 13, 2007
Someone please explain to me why there is a play-in game? What? Can’t “The (All-Powerful) Committee” make up its mind? What? Can’t tell one conference, “no, you’re not deserving. You didn’t generate enough revenue for us so you can’t pla-ay?”
64 is so much nicer a number than 65. I just got off the line with The Basketball God and TBG says, “forget it, this game is not worthy. I am not telling you who wins”.
So, it’s up to me . . . The Mid-Eastern or the MAAC? It should be easy, Florida A&M, defending national champions and all? Wait, that was the other Florida. Maybe Niagara has them over a barrel? Yes, awash in the glory of their MAAC tourney run, The Purple Eagles drown The Rattlers behind Coach Joe Mihalich (a Philly guy who played for Paul Westhead and coached under Speedy Morris and the legendary Morgan Wooten) and you always go with the Philly guy.
