Who'da thunk it: Fla. Int'l in scheduling hassle before Isiah coaches a game

    Undoubtedly Isiah's glittering record of basketball administration in Toronto, New York and with the CBA prepared him well for just such a situation. ::) ::)

    Like it makes any difference anyway -- lose by 40 to UNC, maybe by 25 to OSU.

    uh, how is any of that Isiah's fault?

    The throw-a-tantrum response: "if we are forced to play UNC, we're pulling out; if we are allowed to play Ohio State, we'll stay in."

    Guaranteeing Ohio State will probably make every effort to run the score over the moon on their asses.

    I don't know why you would be.

    I had the same thought. This very easily could be taken as a bulletin board insult by the Buckeyes. Oh you thought it'd easier to play us.... He's setting himself up for a beating either way.

    Here's hoping the Buckeyes or the Tar Heels or whoever beats them by 50.

    I guess you're under the belief that a coaches lack of success in the professional ranks correlates to what they may do in college.

    I hope Isiah brings in 5-star recruits in the future. I look forward to some "those are horrible parents" posts from you in the future.

    Coaches bitch and whine about this type of stuff all the time. I know of several coaches who have said their teams will only participate in the preseason NIT if they are guaranteed to have two home games.

    It makes the news because it's Isiah. It's not a big deal on any level.

    While I can understand Isiah's point, it likely won't matter much and all it did was give Thad Motta all he'll need for that pregame speech.

    FIU wasn't beating Chapel Hill, but its chances of knocking off Ohio State were almost as remote.

    Isn't it already pretty insane to have a mid-major get an invite to something like Coaches vs. Cancer?

    Pretty much. While some in here will focus on the final score, others with common sense will look at the amount of exposure a mid-major is getting and how it's to their future benefit.

    too bad personal dislike and hope for failure clouds common sense.

    Who is the fourth team invited?
