BI NOW GAY LATER

So people stop asking, the "Bi" in my username is a reference to my love for the two greatest collegiate sports programs in the world, the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Marshall Thundering Herd.

i am shocked they did not put wvu in the same bracket with kentucky

They also faded massively late in the season and we beat them fairly solidly. The end of their regular season was disastrous

how about Minnesota getting 3 seeds higher w/ the same circumstances of Wisconsin finishing ahead of them in both regular season and tournament and Minnesota beating no one in non conference

I mean gently caress Wisconsin and all, but if they're judging by the last 10 games of the season only Duke SHOULD be a 1 and Michigan should be the highest seeded team in the Big 10, which would obviously be stupid as hell

This is what happens when you drop your last home game and lose in the first round of the Big East Tournament. Lost that 3 seed.

Pretty much, after Illinois State and Wichita State the third team in conference finished with a 17-16 record. Well Loyola was 18-14 but finished with a worse conference record.

Yeah it was pretty garbage. WSU and to a much lesser extent Illinois State were the only teams playing even passable basketball.

Still though I would much rather see an intriguing 17-1 MVC team than garbage like Kansas State, 8-10 in conference and 6-11 vs the top 100 RPI. Like, the jury is still out on Illinois State but we already know Kansas State is a steaming pile of mediocrity. I hate when teams like that get in.

It only makes sense if technicals are worth extra points in the tourney.

on the selection show they were saying they were a bit surprised Duke wasn't a 1 seed. 5th place ACC in conference season, 11-7.

Eh, Butler was probably seeded right, but imo Florida State does not deserve that 3 seed. I would have flipped those two.
