LSU had 11 as well.

But you're right, it's a load of bobby_petrino.gif.

I'll never get excited about SC/college basketball again. After the last 40+ years of hoping, I've had enough. It's bad enough when we suck, but when we deserve a bid and get slighted, I'm done. We may get in every 15 or so years, but that's not enough to keep this guy interested.

I'm still all in. Gamecock basketball is what converted me from a Clemson fan to a Carolina fan. So I owe them a lot.

I'll treat it like most of the other Gamecock sports outside of football and baseball. In other words, it won't be a major sport for me. I'll know how they're doing from reading up on our Gamecock sports site, but I won't bother watching much on TV or the internet, or going to any games. I've always tried to catch a few games live each year, but no interest in that anymore.

As fans of back to back NIT champs Gamecocks know better than most that no one really cares about the NIT. I'll probably watch it tomorrow just because it's Gamecock basketball, but even when you win the whole thing you wake up the next morning, listen to the radio, and go "oh that's right, there's a real tournament still going on".

The only thing the NIT does is give teams extra practice time. Other than that, it's worthless. Not even sure why they still have it. Years ago it was a worthwhile tournament.

Glad to see Cal is still a crybaby though.

SEC should thank him. Only personality in the conference that brings attention to us. Billy D is gone and Pearl sucks too much to get air time. Who else is there?

I'm guessing it makes money for ESPN. I think they have the TV rights to it

Good. I'll know to bypass ESPN for the next few weeks.

My neighbor I grew up with was a die hard Clemson fan and he was 5 years older. So I grew up pulling for them.

Then in 1995 my first taxable job was as an usher at the Carolina Coliseum. So I watched every home basketball game. When I first started the job I was pulling for Carolina to always lose.

Then we went on that run in the 96'-97's season with BJ McKie, Larry Davis and Melvin Watson. I found myself converted when they beat Kentucky to clinch the SEC Championship.

I have been hooked since then.

Not to be a dick, but SC didn't really "deserve" a bid.

Since when do you care about the conference?

Since when does "attention" matter to anyone besides Bama football fans and Kentucky basketball fans?

(hint: never and never)

I guess that's why you said we were already secured in making the NCAAT a week or two ago when I said we needed at least the UGA game or the Arkansas game to make sure we got in. You said you didn't think they'd leave a team out with 23 wins from a power conference. We got 24.

Not to be dick, but you're starting to flip flop like Hogan, Joe.

Well no wonder you're upset. You put stock in anything Joe had to say relating to basketball. No wonder. Now you've learned.

You don't see the difference in thinking they wouldn't leave a team out and actually deserving the bid?

I'm still surprised, but it's not like it was some massive snub. It wasn't even a snub.

I guess he could go read RuppsRafters and then you two could communicate on your level.

Thanks for the meaningless explanation Hogan, I mean Joe.

You've never been described as rational or even-keeled, have you?
