Like other people with phony-baloney jobs, we’re watching ESPN’s college basketball marathon today at The Eagle/Kansas.com. The question – what would Wichita State draw (actual, not paid) for a 1 p.m. game on a Tuesday afternoon against Arkansas-Little Rock?
My guess was 4,500. I’m probably at least 1,500-2,000 light, but that’s what I said. I will stick with it and take my lumps. MVC commissioner Doug Elgin said ESPN offered these time slots. Elgin didn’t find any takers.
Other guesses ranged from 7,500 to 9,000.
What is your guess?
This UALR-Tulsa game brings up another hypothetical. Tulsa’s Ben Uzoh strongly considered WSU and would have been a freshman on the 2006-07 team. Add Uzoh (instead of Gal Mekel) to that team. He started 30 games for Tulsa and averaged 9.9 points and 5.0 rebounds. How did that season go differently if Uzoh choses WSU?
