Forgot to add the link.
For kicks and giggles, the committee should pair Auburn/Purdue in a 5/12 or 6/11 matchup.
I'm glad the committee uses a lot of tools to make determinations, as none are perfect. Some are highly flawed though. I was reading the home board and saw that UK rose from 51 to 41 in adjusted defensive efficiency after beating Florida. I thought, wow, that's odd.... they have played 27 games and that one game made them rise that high. Then I read that recent games are weighted higher. Ha, what a joke!
Wow. Iowa as an 8 seed would be rough. Kind of like Villanova getting Wisconsin in the second round in 2017.
I think you could do a much better job than some of those brackets. I clicked a few of them and they go straight to blogs like that.
OT, but where do we think this place ranks in terms of most visited places for people who follow CBB? Top 100? Top 500? Outside of ESPN or any other major news outlet I can't really think of a place that's necessarily a "must visit" type of place to talk about and read about what's going on in the sport. This place has a pretty good following and between the football/basketball boards there's usually around 5000 people on at any given time. Makes you wonder who might be lurking out there.
This. Very reminiscent of the Big 12 of 5 years or so ago.
Hard to imagine some friends/family of players and recruits not lurking.
I kind of want to post a bracket the day before its unveiled. I mostly just want to see if I can beat Lunardi. He has the biggest platform, but is by no means the best bracketologist. I love how he says something along the lines of, "Last year, I correctly picked 66 of the 68 teams in the tournament." Oh really? 66 of 68? So, you're giving yourself credit for the 32 at-large bids? And a good 25-30 of the at-large picks are gimmes. So it's more like getting 8 out of 10.
I think I read somewhere that only once in the last 8 years has a team from the conference with the most NCAA tournament teams won it all and that was 2017 UNC
Oh, no doubt. I was more curious to know if any big names at ESPN have ever lurked here. Scott Van Pelt supposedly dropped a mainboard inside joke 10ish years ago. I don't know if that's true or not but it gets referenced from time to time.
I'm just waiting for the day when somebody at ESPN DM's you and offers you a job. Lol. We'll be so proud of you.
lol that would be funny.
I saw that too
I'd take FSU over half of op's list.
I have a feeling we will see a lot of these top teams fall at least once more in the regular season. Kansas still has to go to Tech and Baylor still has tech and @ WVU.
5 Florida State
That was a loaded backhanded compliment if I've ever seen one. Well done.
And we accept your compliment of Iowa > Kansas, as well.
P.S. Get a f***ing wrestling program, ya bums.
My 10 in order:
10. Seton Hall
Obi Toppin be like...
For reals, though. Only team in college basketball not to lose a game in regulation.
Dayton could do some damage, but to this point their best win is St. Mary's.
They're 4-2 in Quad 1 Games. And both of those losses were in overtime. Don't get me wrong, they're not the favorites. But if we're listing the 10 schools most likely to win it all, I think they have to be in there.
They don’t have the tourney experience imo.
it’s been over 30 years since a team won the title without the head coach having been to at least the E8 already or having a roster loaded with players that already had rings(UConn 2014, UK 98)
Kansas or Louisville.
9. Seton Hall
10. Duke or Kentucky..
I’d love to agree with you on this and troll mossy, but considering how weak the field is this year, I could see them making it to the s16 or elite 8, based solely on their defense.
214th ranked in Adjusted Offense. I mean of course they could make a run with their great defense and make some timely shots, but it’s a lol worthy take.
Auburn? I would have FSU, WVU just to name a few with a better chance than Auburn.
Very true, plus **** Virginia.
Kansas (current wide favorite imo)
San Diego State
i laughed a little as I typed it tbh. I was scrambling to find 10 teams. I really think it will come from 1 of the 5 of Duke, UL, Kansas, Baylor and Gonzaga
...that would at least guarantee another vacated title.
Your position is that recent games should be given the same weight as early season games? Literally the first time I've ever seen that take. I think I now have KenPom bingo!
I like your list. I might swap the buckeyes with Sparty and Auburn is not going to get a smell.
Well, lets see.....
Indiana blasted #6 Florida State...80-64
Michigan smashed #3 Gonzaga, 82-64...And #10 Creighton..79-69
MSU beat #13 Seton Hall...
OSU beat #12 Villanova by 25, 76-51....Oh, and #8 Kentucky.
Iowa beat #22 Texas Tech....
For Christ sake----14-14 Purdue beat Virginia by 29....
So, an 8-8 Big 10 team beat the #6 in the nation, by 16...
Another 8-8 team beat Villanova by 25, and your Cats...
A 9-7 team beat Gonazaga by 18.....
Pretty sure none of the above where computer simulated.
Big 10 is pretty solid.
You'll never learn......
November/December 2018- I told you the CATS would win at the Chicken Bucket by Double digits... they won by 13.
November/December 2018- I told you the CATS would destroy U6 on the football field. They did.... 56-10
Summer to December 2019- I told you the CATS would beat U6 by at least 8. Final score: 78-70
November/December 2019- I told you the CATS would destroy U6 on the football field again. They did, 45-13.
.....I'm not the only one talking more sanctions coming for U6. One of your own, Jerry Eaves.... says the same thing daily.
More drivel. Either gonna be Kansas, U of L, Baylor, or Dayton. Kentucky ain’t winning shit this year. Enjoy your super bowl in December little guy!
also jerry eaves ain’t one of us, he’s practically a blew neck, go ahead and embrace that old fayghut.
You know, it would make me chuckle if Louisville won this year. He likes to brag so much about how Cal dominates them but the tournament results would show that they're the better program since 2010.
Did Calipari coach in Lawrence last year?
We're probably safe then.
