MTSU & ODU have a huge advantage over UAB & WKU
They only play each other once. UAB and WKU play the top 5 twice each.

North Texas also has an advantageous schedule in that they only play the top 5 teams once each. But they lost at home to Charlotte so I suspect UNT will not be a contender for a top 4 seed. But they could sneak into 5th or 6th because of it. If one of the other top 5 craps out.

While anything can happen, MTSU & WKU are leading and If I had to wager on it, they will likely be 1&2 in some order. And, UAB & ODU are tied for 3rd and if I had to wager, they will be 3 and 4 in some order.

Marshall will likely be 5. The rest, who knows.

Big concern for us is that the Marshall big man who has killer stats this year, may be back for our game. Less likely for MTSU. (As if MTSU needs another advantage)

RE: MTSU & ODU have a huge advantage over UAB & WKU
Imo, Toughest 2 game stretch of season is up next. AT WKU and AT Marshall. Didn’t feel good about our matchup with WKU even before they added the two 4 star players mid season. WKU fans will have a different type of energy for that game having added those players. Marshall, well I believe, they have the best gameday atmosphere in the conference and don’t they have the top offense in the league?

Marshall had 5683 against Tech and 5683 against WKU. 5537 against USM.

They have always had better attendance than us. Even when they were bad.

WKU had 4837 against tech. 4654 against USM.

So they draw better than us but not as good as Marshall.

As for their offense, I haven't looked but Id wager they score more than anyone else. Maybe a good bit more than the 2nd place offense.

Lack of Defense has something to do with it too though.

It's funny to hear you talk about team's drawing better than us when you choose to watch the game at home.

When you get 38+ years of going to games come hell, high water or snow or ice under your belt, then you can laugh. Not until.

OK. I point and laugh at you. TV is to live basketball as porn is to live sex. Everyone enjoys looking at pictures every now and then, but it's not the same thing.

Since 2009 we have had some pretty mediocre years which has hurt our attendance. But for some reason we usually draw better late in the year for big conference games. With 40 years experience as a WKU fan I think Bowling Green will BRING IT this week. MTSU will be our biggest crowd of the year on Saturday, probably a sellout or near sellout. But after sweeping this three game road trip I think we have a great shot at 6000+ on Thursday. Barring crappy weather of course.

Since Marshall doesn't play defense and UAB only plays it sometimes, I suspect we will win 156-155

It looked like all the UAB students watched LaTech game at home. Or was something else going in town that day? I thought maybe students were being quarantined with flu?

The schedule presents a rare chance to improve our RPI during the conference season. Beat them both, Blazers!
