You have 68 wins and 60 losses. That just seems so wrong.

Re: Boston U Conference Play

I don't think any team will be totally dominant this year and everyone will have several losses. There are just too many good teams. SBU and UA look the strongest and most consistent to me. UVM, BU and Hartford will have winning records but be less consistent. UMO and UNH will have a few really good games but losing records. UMBC and Bing will try hard but not win many.

The food at Patrick Gym will be the same dreck all season.

That's the thing- the conference has no tie-breaker for the regular season conference champion.

It ends in a tie and the regular season championship is shared.

Math isn't NotDeadYet's thing either. You had 76 wins and 68 losses.

Re: Boston U Conference Play

I think Coach Jones will be up-to-task to keep the team motivated throughout conference play. He just seems to have the fire and passion to do it.

Also, unlike the previous two years, more players are providing production. DJ and Dom may be the two best players, but other guys can be counted on to step up. It's nice insurance to have in case one of these two is having an off night.

Off topic, but if the women's team somehow manages to go through conference play undefeated, how much consideration would they get for an at-large bid? 26-3 and a win over a ranked team is a good resume.

BU womens team is strong. They should go either 16-0 or 15-1 in league play. I predict an NCAA at large bid if they do that

I don't. The women's selection committee is awful at going outside of the power conferences. In 2002-03 Maine went 16-0 in the conference and lost in the conference title game. The head of the selection committee did a web chat on ESPN after they released the brackets, and someone asked about Maine. The upshot was basically that they weren't considered at all.

You'd hope that with the recent success of the conference (Hartford and Vermont winning games in the NCAA) they might be a little more open to it. Plus it would be a great story

This is a totally different situation. BU was banned by the America East conference. The committee is very aware of this fact.

If BU women go 16-0 or 15-1 in conference play, they will receive high consideration for an at-large bid with the quality wins (St Johns, BC, Richmond) and close loses (West Virginia, Michigan) from their Out-of-Conference schedule. Their RPI is already Top 50 and will only climb if they can sweep conference play and be 26-3.

Any scenerio other than a conference sweep or one loss means NIT.

Well, good luck to you. But Maine was a fairly big name at that point (had won in the NCAA tournament recently, was getting home games against major schools), and no luck.

Hartford got an at large a few years ago and I can't imagine they ended up doiing much
better than 26-3 with some good quality wins like the BU guys are proposing. I think if they
sweep the conference, which is quite possible, they get an at large, especially considering the
unique story.

We're fans of the same team man - I've bled Seawolves Red for a very long time. But I won't let any fan make statements they can't substantiate, especially when what they're saying goes so strongly against the statistics.

Maine is no Binghamton, but they're very barely mediocre overall (with above average athleticism). BU seems to be better coached, more athletic, and has a more cohesive philosophy. Enlighten me if I'm mistaken, but I see nothing that indicates that BU is a worse program than Maine.

The CAA is on Line 1. They're mad you're giving the AE credit for their idea.
