Because some conference tournaments were diminished to not include lower teams and some teams bowed out of conference tournaments it should be more likely this year that not all of the land will end up with the champion. Since Duke won its last several game I'm a little surprised no land will end up with them. Surprisingly, it looks like Central Connecticut is the only sitting team with land. Unless I'm missing someone or another VCU happens then I think that the winner will have the rest.

They beat BC and Louisville. BC is, well, BC and Louisville had lost the game before their game with Duke to Virginia. So we got that land.

Our win over Kent gave us a small chunk of land in Louisiana and Alabama. Athens County currently belongs to Purdue.

For those who don't know what this, the college basketball board on reddit has an "Imperialism" map. At the beginning of each season, every county in the country belongs to the school closest to the center of that county. That constitutes that school's territory. As games are played, if a team with land loses a game, the team that beat them gets all of their land. Wash rinse repeat all season - the map is updated daily. At the beginning of the season, we owned Athens and several surrounding counties. I don't think the Belmont win gave us land because Vanderbilt is closer to those city centers in Tennessee. The Cleveland State win didn't get us anything since CSU had already lost their land. We lost our land by losing to UK, who then lost it to IU, who then lost it to Penn State, who lost it to Purdue.

As the season goes on, land consolidates and their are fewer and fewer territories. The hope is that the national champion assumes all land, but sometimes it doesn't work out that way. It doesn't matter at all, and is just for fun.

Looking quickly, it doesn't appear we have any opportunity to grab more in the regular season.


I've seen crazier things happen.

No, Toledo was the only team that carried land into conference play. This small territory is all anyone in the MAC will have until postseason play.

It's one of the coolest things the CollegeBasketball reddit page does. I encourage anyone who hasn't checked it out yet to definitely give it a try - great community and love discussing and bantering with others!
