UIC, Loyola included in ESPN BracketBusters

A couple of matchups in ESPN 's 2009 BracketBusters will have a distinctly local flavor, with a touch of possible payback between the Horizon League and the Missouri Valley Conference thrown in.

i dont have anything against these schools, but I hate the fact that the trib is reporting on what ESPN thinks.

meta-news is not news.

The trib story mentions SIU as an afterthought, forgetting that many if it readers are Salukis. Hopefully there will be more Saluki fans at the UIC game so it will not feel like a road game. I bet Texas Tech and Georgia fans remember their "neutral site" game in The Big Dance against the Salukis in Chicago. We beat thyem both.

I would like to see UIC in the Missouri Valley Conference. A Chicago presence would help the conference and UIC could use the upgrade.
