    More than that, because Gonzaga's own payouts would have been added to the MWC's payouts.

    assuming that Gonzaga gave the MWC another bid, and did not knock out another team, which is not a sure thing.

    The way to take dice throw out of coaching hires is to get existing head coaches at lesser schools who are super successful. See Texas Tech. Such were Hill’s best hires. Assistants are a complete crap shoot.

    The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.

    It might not be an exact dollar-to-dollar change, but there's no question that the MWC's total payouts would have been much higher with Gonzaga in the conference.

    It’s sad to see so many teams with conference records like ours in the tournament—Texas Tech, Clemson, North Carolina, Miami, West Virginia, Kansas State, UCLA, ASU, Seton Hall, etc.—realizing that all we needed to do was schedule more competitive games in the preseason to get in. It’s like malpractice to not schedule competitive games and make the hill so steep to get in the conference. Remember a few years back the Huskies won the PAC 12 regular season and didn’t get an NCAA bid.

    This is not true. In the end, it wasn't RPI that kept us out. We needed quadrant 1 wins. We needed to beat Arizona.
