I wonder if Buzz wants some cheese with his whine. Give me a break! Nobody cares or listens when non-P5 teams get the screws. Like lack of transparency and favoritism is a new thing. Sheesh!
Also, Jeff Goodman would like to weigh inI wonder if Buzz wants some cheese with his whine. Give me a break! Nobody cares or listens when non-P5 teams get the screws. Like lack of transparency and favoritism is a new thing. Sheesh!
Yeah… what the hell is he talking about? “Bracketologists” aren’t on the selection committee. We want a public process that presents firm selection criteria up front. The criteria can’t change year to year just because committee members do.Something tells me that Seth Davis doesn't know what the word "transparent" means
I normally don’t venture on to other school’s message boards but wanted to see the state of mind of the Muskie Nation. There are some mean ass posters there. There was/is a serious anti Travis Steele sentiment.Ahhhh… so the Muskie faithful have truly sold their collective soul? The guy is dead to rights with multiple serious violations from Arizona, yet they prefer him?
I was SHOCKED by the committee saying Dayton was the highest rated team left out. I still cannot conceive a logic-based selection process that says Dayton's resume is the top left out.... but Memphis gets in. They had MORE bad losses (Tulane, Georgia, East Carolina, Cincinnati, UCF) and while they had one more good win, it was because they went 2-1 against Houston -- who had such a ridiculously weak resume they got a 5 seed -- and Alabama; while Dayton beat Kansas and Miami.I don’t know JP. I can’t say that I believe Dayton got screwed. If anything, I say that the Committee gave UD an honest look by considering what the Flyer’s did after first three horrible losses.
Look at the number of ways that UD could have gotten in as an at-large.
Not losing to UMASS Lowell, Lipscomb and Austin Peay, or
Winning one of the true road games in OOC at Ole Miss or SMU, or
Not losing at LaSalle, or
Not losing a 15 point lead against Richmond in the semi’s
The Committee ranked UD right with ND, Indiana and Rutgers so UD should have taken care of two or three of the points I listed. None of which were stretches.
I thought it was Duke, Kentucky, Villanova, Auburn...Quinnipiac is pretty damn good this year. They earned their 2 seed in their region (also the top seeded team from the Northeast, since the other 5 teams make up all the 4 seeds and one of the 3 seeds).
