    Hey 60, So losing Felton really hurt tubby? Yeah right! Any supposed great coach would have not missed a beat.
    Hey 28, tubby was mediocre at best and is not even close to being as good a coach as Cal. Even if tubby could have recruited like Cal he proved that he could not handle big time recruits. All in all tubby was a terrible fit and an abject failure for Kentucky basketball…….

    It’s safe to say there is a presence of Missouri fans and watchers in the StL area.

    I’ve also noticed a large number of Illinois fans in the area, whatever that’s worth. So, it would be something of an advantage if they came to the SEC. Definitely wouldn’t hurt I’d imagine

    If we add 4 more teams, how will the divisions be split? Would we go to 4 divisions and 2 regions? Each division plays their 3 intradivisional teams every year. Then play the other division teams in their region every other year. Then with the remaining 3 games split the 8 teams from the other region.

    Or, Do we play 9 conference games? If we go super conference, we probably should play nine conference games and 3 non, or make the standard schedule 13 games (instead of 12).
