Ha this was like exactly the same for ISU. Got bounced as a 2 seed and then spent the next 9 or so years being pretty bad. Hoiberg finally turned it around, and I'm hoping we don't go back.

When you get bounced in the first round as a 2 seed you have to go wander around in the desert for a while

Can't wait for Vermont of all teams to beat Purdue, Iowa State and Kansas in a row.

Actually, pretty sure Nevada will at least give ISU a double OT nightmare first.

And New Mexico State got lucky, getting literally the only top 16 team they could feasibly beat.

Would you rather be a 15/16 seed every year, or be seeded higher in the NIT and have a shot to win games?

For most mid major schools this doesn't apply, as a Mountain West, A-10, MVC schools usually are seeded between 12 and 7.

But if you are the same MEAC or SWAC school and always get that 16/16 play in game, as a fan, wouldn't you rather have a shot to win some post season games in the NIT?


I almost think the NIT should allow the losers of the play in games to go to the NIT.

Teams from those conferences are NCAA or bust. I don't think any of the runner ups even make the NIT from places like the MEAC.

The only exception being that any regular season conference winner gets an NIT autobid if they don't win their conference tournament.

Those schools probably make more money getting killed by UNC/Kansas/Duke than they would going to the NIT quarterfinals or whatever.

I did the ESPN bracket, for some reason it wouldn't let me pick Evansville to win the tournament? I think it's a bug.

edit: Also have you seen how bad the MEAC and SWAC are? I'm pretty sure none of them have a winning record outside of conference.
edit2: Ok NC Central does but they're the only one.

Agreed. I absolutely love it.

Especially when you get odd things like in this video where one of the editors finds the first recorded dab and Bois then jokes about how that was why she got a promotion to editor-in-chief or whatever.

I haven't watched college basketball since the days of Tony Bobbitt and Jerry McNamara, but somehow my coworkers have convinced me to make a bracket.

Are there any references for someone who doesn't know a lick about the sport? I'd even take a list of success rates of certain seeds to base my choices on.

Congratulations, you know nothing about college basketball, prepare to win your pool.

I guess you could use this article http://www.cbssports.com/college-ba...ss-office-pool/

Or barring all else, model it on ESPN's People's Bracket, which is really just showing who most people are picking to win.

There's a reason it's called March Madness, things rarely make sense.

Oh hey, we all missed a super important thing. UMKC made their first postseason tournament in history! They host Green Bay in the CBI tomorrow at 5:05 local. Go an angry kangaroo.



Let's remember the scintillating appearance of UMKC's best player ever at the NBA dunk contest.

Not at the D1 level. They apparently played in one NAIA tourney in the 70s (they lost their only game).

Or maybe that should be not while a member of the NCAA? I really have no clue how NAIA works.

Well poo poo. In the early 80s they pumped UMKC up like madness like they were something super special (see: Kansas City Comets) and even with Tony Dumas they never made the tournament. I had no idea.

At least they're responsible for the most anatomically incorrect mural of a dunk ever made.

Here's a straight link to the group by the way, if Bird in a Blender wants to throw it in the OP or something. It does not include the play in games which is why I was in a hurry just now looking it up, so we've got time to get more people in.
