Re: Also of note: NCAA adding two new metrics to team evaluation sheets

Vanderbilt was #188 in the 2024 Torvik, just behind Texas A&M Country Club. https://www.barttorvik.com/# And this article from 3 years ago discusses Wins Above Bubble. Of course, it still factors scoring margin. https://herhoopstats.substack.com/p/ncaa-womens-basketball-wins-above-bubble-wab Ca...

Re: Memorial Gymnasium

Maybe somebody with a real estate background in amortizing can help with this. Memorial Gym was built with an initial outlay of 1.5 million bucks. Thus it has over the course of 70 years, paid for itself X-amount of times. A person might deduce that either upgrade of replace would be reasonably in ...

Re: Memorial Gymnasium

Ah yes. The old mantra. "Do you want it fast, cheap, or high quality? You can have any two of the three." Haha - I tell a version to my team of that - basically it can be fast or inexpensive if you aren't willing to do something poorly (which we cannot or will be risking life-safety). The...

Re: Vandy to play in Charlston Classic

The way mid-majors were unmercifully poached this year in the portal, yes... VU shouldn't lose to any of them. The new coach shouldn't get a pass in losses to them, even if he looks like somebody's nephew or cousin. With the $$$$$$$ budget he's been gifted, he should be held to the highest expectat...

Re: Memorial Gymnasium

The new Intel factory being built is going to have 916,000 pound freezers which I doubt will be on the roof of anything. If we could send a man to the moon long ago in an era of far less technology, Memorial could have a/c. Yes, it could, but again you avoid the question of whether it makes sense t...

Re: Vandy to play in Charlston Classic

The way mid-majors were unmercifully poached this year in the portal, yes... VU shouldn't lose to any of them. They've been mercilessly poached over the last three seasons and yet there continue to be good mid major programs. I don't expect that to change moving forward and given the number of time...

Vandy to play in Charlston Classic

https://vucommodores.com/dores-to-compete-in-shriners-childrens-charleston-classic/ Other teams include FAU, Drake, Miami, OKSt, Nevada, Seton Hall and VCU - very solid lineup of strong mid-majors and high majors that are teams that a tournament team should be able to beat. Very good test to see whe...

Re: Memorial Gymnasium

There is a contributing factor only law geeks will appreciate. Most (if not all) counties have ordinances that if you are doing a repair or renovation of a structure and the projected cost of that work is more than 30% of the structure's value, you must bring the entire structure up to the current ...
