FWIW RealtimeRPI predicts we get a two-point win (53.1%)

 

We are going to need to rebound really well. They're going to want to run like mad and we'll have to control pace. Also make sure they only have five guys on the floor at a time...

This is why some of us scream that the regular season DOES matter. No respect at all...

 

A bit more than 24hrs prior you said "sign me up" for the play in game and you agreed with D96's positive view of the game. Now the team gets the game you wanted and it's "no respect at all."

What I want/wanted has no reflection on the respect or lack there of. Did I say something wrong or did your hyper defense mechanism kick in? I swear, you can't even make a true statement before someone gets their hairs to stand on end....sigh.

 

Playing game you say? Let's do this thing...

You're great C-Clack, but you do have to recant more than most.

 

Game(s) sets up badly for me. On business travel to St. Louis T-Th. was hoping we'd be sent there. My 3-game NCAA attendance streak will be broken.

 

Having now seen what this team is capable of, it makes the regular season even that much more frustrating. I don't know what excuses might even be justifiable.

Click- What respect? Yeah, on paper I think we are better than Weber. But really, we are not beating Arizona, so it doesn't bother me. Coastal-- yeah, I think we are better. But we've played Virginia in recent tourney history...so I'm sure that had something to do with it. Plus, Virginia is a match-up nightmare for us...irrespective they are the weakest 1 seed.

 

The 15's? Even with the back-to-back, a 15 seed is a stretch. Even if we won 3 more games (like I think we would've if we were healthy all season). Playoff time...we are a 6 man rotation, with Dallas coming on in spot duty for the 7th. 6 man rotations don't get 15 seeds. Additionally, they were not going to match us with Duke. Villanova...would wax us badly on personnel match-ups. They are #1 seed that happened to get upset. Virginia basically replaced them.

 

So, your left with two options if your the committee: PIG or the last #15.

 

PIG perspective, it doesn't matter if you're in the Florida or Wichita State bracket. Florida is Florida, and Wichita State is going to be on a mission since the committee basically thumbed there noses at them. Wouldn't want to play them. So if we are going to be in the PIG, I'm glad we are not in their PIG. With Florida, at least you're getting National Exposure. That game will be the featured game of the day.

 

They could have seeded us #15 against Michigan. Again, a team that is an insane #2. Michigan State might be the best team in the country today (playing amazing basketball), and they are the only reason Michigan didn't take Villanova's spot (UVA did). So again, I think we are better than Wofford but I'd rather NOT play Michigan. Bad matchup.

 

So, the committee gave us a winnable game in the PIG (though the Mount is on fire right now, I watched the RMU game and they destroyed them). That means they also gave us the ability to rake in 1.2 mm or so for the league x 2 credits I believe. In addition, they gave us cheaper and easier travel (the school has to pay for it) to get to Orlando. They also gave us two major games of exposure. Don't see the issues here.

 

Not sure you aren't in the "I'm going to set myself on fire" mode again. ;)
