WTKA Roundtable 5/20/2021: You Already Have All the Curses

May 20, 2021

Things discussed:

  • Seth & Craig come on early (Sam is out sick) to talk about sports analytics
  • Softball seeding: Michigan got hosed, the Big Ten got hosed, Washington and the Pac 12 got hosed even worse. Seeding was absurdly SEC-biased.
  • Committee based it on the Big Ten not playing out-of-conference games, punishing the conference for protecting their players during a pandemic.
  • Will this be what finally pushes the northern schools to leave the NCAA and create their own summer league?
  • Would they adapt Bakich’s proposal to make more money? Brian: plausible. Seth: no, because they’re a cartel, and the small schools are driving it.
  • How scholarships work in softball/baseball now.
  • Matt Campbell turned down the Lions, would you?
  • Oregon State DT transfer, and Michigan’s Ravens-like front: will it work?
  • Hockey: Brian crosses fingers that Michigan Hockey Summer leaves us at least three of the four guys about to get drafted.
  • Hoops: Are they a 1 seed? Their floor is really high, a bit on Bufkin.
  • Track is good.
  • Let’s change the field hockey rules.
