I'm sort of with you on this one, too. My only fear is that they steal a bid from another deserving non-P5 instead of a team like Oklahoma or Indiana.

But their NET is 15. Even if they don't advance in their conference tournament, it would seem to be hard to leave them out and claim any validity to the NET as a measuring tool.

They are 3-4 in Quad 1, with the 4 losses on the road to P5's. They are undefeated in Quads 2,3 and 4.

Strangely I am hoping Wofford goes out in the tournament as well, in the Final so there is little doubt about them (not that there should be but 2016 has scarred me). This is the best year for the mid majors to crash the party. Belmont, Lipscomb, Murray St, Liberty, Furman are all within reach. The only problem is some garbage team like Indiana just has to win a couple of games in the B1G and they will leap frog.

Assuming their NET stays at or near 15 even with an early exit, say top 25, that would be a litmus test for the committee, and everyone not in a P5[+]+ would be in their rights to (figuratively) murder the committee if they got left out.

Re: Miscellaneous Stuf

Hah! Buffalo and Wofford (and VCU?) can produce bid stealers from the bubble by losing in their conference tournaments.

Re: Miscellaneous Stuf

Also, with the thousands of games already played this year, and the millions of data points available in the 6 areas that supposedly make up the NET, I am continually amazed that no one has reverse engineered this thing.

Re: Miscellaneous Stuf

We’ll see if the NCAA actually does anything of substance to a P5. What a goddamn disgrace those schools have become.

I don't remember if I said it here or on the sju board, but Will Wade is as charming as a soggy oven mitt. Having to be a slimy fuck to get players should be shocking to no one.

The only questions that remain are whether these guys did similar shit at their respective former schools. It doesn't seem likely to me that a coach only starts to cheat when they get to certain level. Don't think so. And, in another way, rarely does the apple fall far from the other apple.

As a poster on another board said to me, and I paraphrase; we're clean, thank god we have no money to give.

I'm a trained economist, folks. People respond to incentives. None of this surprises me (or you), none of it shocks me. Yes, it saddens me, but we're all codependents.

In line with what Res posted above, i am reminded of the actor who asked the director what his motivation should be in the upcoming scene? The response, " a paycheck.'
