If we split nova/shu and don’t slip up vs Georgetown and Marquette we can go into the BET and play for seeding.
Yeah some of his choices are odd....all I can think of is he's giving UNC "credit" for playing & losing to TX & Iowa and ACC slightly better than BE. Otherwise our win vs USC is better than UNC over Stanford. Our KenPom is 36 to UNC 42How on earth is North Carolina in "Last Four Byes" category? They have seven losses, including a loss against Georgia Tech and NC State. The only good win they have is against Stanford, who is the last team in the field.
Thanks. I checked it out in genuine curiosity and came away educated.I've given up correcting people, since it makes me look like a richard, but I have the feeling you appreciate it. So FIFY

If we beat Nova we’re inWe just don’t have enough quality wins right now essentially because we haven’t played enough games. I think most people assume we’re going to win @ Georgetown (myself included) but right now that would be our 4th best win in the eyes of the committee and only our 4th Q1/Q2 win. If we take care of business down the stretch and boost our resume on the BET we’ll be more than fine.
Yeah, A-10 and the MWC both very good mid-major conferences...the only difference is the MWC has four teams that have established themselves as the top of the conference.
I hope we won’t need much help to get in, but this certainly helps.
This year, more than ever, not having good out of conference games hurts because we can’t see how we match up against other power 5 conferences. So all these analysts see is Big10 teams beating up on each other and assuming it’s the best conference out there, but we really don’t know for sure aside from the eye test or the limited early season out of conference games that happened.Watching Indiana right now against a really bad MSU team and they look like a team we would beat by 15-20 points easily. I think most of the Big 10 is overhyped, but of course Lunardi has Indiana in and us out in his current Bracketology
There was no tourney last year, so any player who’s a sophomore or freshman has no March madness experience regardless of the team.My biggest concern, and I’m surprised no one is talking about this, is that zero players on our roster have March madness experience. I truly believe that having a couple guys on the roster with March madness experience would go a long way in making a deep run, or even getting out of opening weekend due to the nerves.
Someone posted that we’re at a disadvantage because none of our players have March Madness experience. My point is that at best a team may have seniors and juniors who’ve played in the tourney, but not a full roster of players. I don’t see that being much of an advantage.Ok, what about juniors and seniors? Not sure I follow your point
