That's good, I thought he had health issues. He was always close to being good enough to start, but just didn't quite put it together at ISU.

Yeah Gonzaga doesn't deserve that poo poo. They never play anyone good aside from St. Mary's.

It's so annoying that they get rewarded for winning a ton in their conference. Yet schools like Butler could never get higher than a 5 seed when they would roll through their conferences like the Horizon.

This would ring a little truer if they didn't play and beat Arizona this year. Iowa State and Florida are good wins too.

Yeah their conference sucks for sure though.

Depending on how you feel about Illinois St whooping up on an awful Valley not really. The bubble was such trash it's hard to be too fired up about anyone who missed it. But also yes Iowa was robbed imo

I know they beat Arizona, but the committee does focus on the more recent games. Arizona had injuries at the beginning of the season and then they went on the get a share of the PAC-12 and win their tourney. That weighs more to me than what Gonzaga did.

For actually making the tournament? I don't think so. Everyone left out had pretty weak resumes.

For seeding, I think Arizona should've been a 1 over Gonzaga. FSU maybe too high at 3, but it's debatable.

Marquis de Pyro posted:

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

I was a little surprised by this as well. However.....you have a few things wrong. The Gophers beat three tournament teams in the non-conference.....including two power five teams (Arkansas & Vandy). Also.....the Gophers have a VERY high RPI......which has a major influence on seeding.

Looked it up for the hell of it, the only other time a KenPom top 10 team had a double digit seed was 2014 Tennessee. Pomeroy had them ranked #10, they were an 11 seed.

Tennessee advanced to the Sweet 16 and lost to 2 seed Michigan by 2. They did avoid Duke in the round of 32 because Mercer beat them in the first round.

e: Oh Tennessee had to play a play in game too, they beat Iowa there.

I think one of the non-16 play-in game winners has won at least one more game every season since its inception, feels like the KSU/WF winner has a real chance against Cincy

Yup, every season so far, and three of six have won twice after their Dayton game

2011: #11 VCU, F4
2012: #12 South Florida, R32
2013: #13 La Salle, S16
2014: #11 Tennessee, S16
2015: #12 Dayton, R32
2016: #11 Wichita St, R32
