Fired Bill Carmody: Maybe even tournament expansion won't help

Maybe even tournament expansion won't help

according to this article, NU would be the first team out of a 96 team bracket. however, a closer look reveals that this clown just followed the NIT seeding to determine who should be included, and he did not actually compare schedules, RPI, etc. i'm not saying NU is a lock for the larger tournament, but it makes no sense to decide the field based on how things are currently seeded in the NIT.

meanwhile, it sounds like at least a few Wildcat fans will be on hand tonight to see if NU can finally pick up a road win. i actually like their chances, given how poorly Rhode Island shoots from the outside. although i'll be there, i expect this game will simply blur into the beer-filled weekend of more important basketball games. i suppose i'll try to recap it in some fashion before too long.

as an aside, i thought about wearing my 1994 NIT tee shirt, but any good luck from that probably wore off while hanging on the sale rack in Norris, since i didn't purchase the shirt until a good 30 months after NU played in that tournament. then i thought i should wear my 1999 NIT tee shirt, but that probably won't help either, considering at that game i drank enough to lose most of my ability to read the scoreboard in the final minutes. let's hope things go better today.

#1 Blogger,

If you start a "Fire Carmody" chant as the game is ending while Juice Thompson's neck is getting rubbed down on the bench from being the recipient of whiplash as a result of the dunks of Lamont Ulmer and Delroy James caused by the 1-3-1 gimmick defense and little Juice's role as the bottom of that defense, AC would be most appreciative.

Rhode Island is abortionally bad and NU's gimmicks work on dumb teams who have never seen them before, but I have faith in Carshitty's coaching to expect a 10 point NU loss.

Fuck Carmody.

longtime follower of blog... maybe you can tell me what that fuckin thing on Carmody's shirt is? I have the game paused and just can't figure it out. I noticed just as they focused on Carmody towards the waning moments, his expression the "awww shit, well, they hit the wide open shots that our 1-3-1 seems to offer every game, maybe we'll get lucky and they won't hit them next time!" face I've seen before... But.. I noticed he was wearing what appeared to be a jewel-embroidered pineapple lapel? I don't mind him getting rid of the tie... In fact, such trinkets might appeal to the bling-bling hip hop culture and help out recruiting?? IDK.I'm just trying to figure out WTF that thing is on his suit. As always, a lot more questions than answers.

Is it just me or does Curletti + Rowley = the worst players in the big ten by a mile? I think even I could have scored on both of them today

AC, I don't see why all the profanity is necessary, but you were right on in your assessment.

Why can't we play DEFENSE!

Carmody isn't even the best basketball coach on the Northwestern campus. Women's coach Joel McKeown is. McKeown has turned the women's program around in two seasons and I bet he has them in the NCAA tournament before long. Northwestern needs to give its men's basketball program what it gave it's women's program last season, one of the best coaches in the nation.
