Sports thoughts

1) Good win for Illinois last night in Happy Valley over Penn State. With 21 wins they should be in the tournament, probably about a 8 or 9 seed maybe 10.
2) Nice win in San Fran-Psycho (Savage lingo) by the Zags last night. They are now 20-10 and thanks to Loyola Marymount's win over Santa Clara, they have an outside chance at winning the WCC regular season title. I still believe (as do the experts) that this is a one -bid league. Even with wins over UNC and Texas and Stanford, it would be hard to get in as an at-large. They have a 1 in 4 chance as opposed to the typical mid major at large, whose chances are closer to 1 in 6.

Loyola of Chicago did a TERRIBLE job in losing to UIC at home last night after beating Butler in Indianapolis. You can't do that in trying to get into the NCAA or NIT. If they miss both the NCAA and the NIT because of that loss, I think the coach needs to be whacked. I blame him for not putting the urgency in the team's preparation.
