I think we are a firm 5 seed right now.  Currently #17 in RPI, #6 in RPI SOS, Won 7 of 8 and 5 in a row, two huge quality wins, no bad losses.  Kenpom still has us at 32 which is a bit low.  Also, the committee seems to weigh the end of the season a bit more heavily than the whole body of work.  They won't completely look the other way but I think the recent play will erase some of the early season negatives. 

The Cats have a Golden opportunity to play their way into a 4 or even a 3 seed.  It would take beating KU again for a 4, and probably winning the Phillips66 for the 3 (UT or no UT)

I guess the circumstances mitigate OSU being a bad loss and if Colorado finishes at .500 or better maybe that won't be a bad loss but I think you are painting too rosy a picture here.

I'd say we're a firm 6 right now. 5 might be a bit much yet.

Bad losses are generally considered losses to teams outside of the RPI top 100.  OSU is no great team, but they aren't terrible especially at home.  They are #61 in the RPI and closer to what would be a quality win than a bad loss.

You could be right.  I'm also assuming a win over ISU, and another in the 4/5 game in the Phillips66 (a bit much to assume, I know.)

still think a strong talking point is our preseason projections.  its really going to benefit us now.  Everyone is going to think we are finally meeting those expectations and are going to place us accordingly.   Honestly wouldn't be shocked at a 3-4 seed when the brackets are released.   :ksu:
Title: Re: The Official Bracketology Thread
Post by: SdK on March 01, 2011, 10:28:17 PM
I really really really want a high seed, but more importantly I want us to be placed in a nice region that we can pick apart. I'm not thinking we are world-beaters yet, but I think we can play with anyone. I like our chances no matter what happens. We won't get to hang a banner for our seed, I'm hoping we just find ourselves in a good position for another elite 8 run. I also don't want us to have another Xavier game on the first game of a weekend.

Nova in the middle of a year-end nosedive too.  3 straight losses and looking at 4 playing @ Pitt saturday.

Paying attention to this is probably not a good way to score a high quality of life index but these seeds are whack.  Baylor and Richmond have been living on the last four in/last four out line in the NCAA for the last two months and they are  five seeds in the NIT?  Meanwhile California who has not even appeared in a next four out part of anyone's bracket all year is a one seed?

Didn't think it was worth making a new thread over, but before the commercial break, Digger said that he thinks a six seed could win the national title this year, said he going with Kansas and then referenced Danny and Miracles.

I think he meant KSU, thanks for the kiss on the cheek followed by the slap on the face Digger!

Semifinals I believe. Yes, I believe we can beat KU. We have better Seniors. I understand ThRob will be in this game, and that will change things. I just think that our team looks really mentally tough this year. We never seem to get rattled. We play under control for the most part. We play great defense. We're making threes at a good rate. The Morris Twins just don't intimidate me or the team. I think that is the biggest factor. I feel like Kelly and Pullen are playing their best ball right in time for the tournament and that creates opportunities for other guys on the team, and they are making good with those shots.

I realize, I'm nowhere near the analytical mind of others on this board, but this is how I feel about a possible rematch. I'm not saying we will win, but I don't think we need to be cautious with our optimism.

I Believe!  :emawkid:

Just seeing the final brackets coming in I'd say its about 55% 6 seed, 45% 7 seed for the Cats. Don't be surprise if we don't get a 7 seed.

man, a 7 seed would be crushing.

I think if we played Georgetown again we could compete, I think this team is much better than we played that day.

I want no part of a team like KU though. KU, BU, and UT are the worst match-ups for us in this league because they have so much length. If we can win 2 games from those 6 games I'll be pretty pleased.

I haven't watched enough WSU to know, they aren't a huge team though. Their defense would be tough.

6 seed. Still an 8 seed in CBS' bracket.

With our loss tonight, I would have us as a 7 seed.   OU is in that 6-7 seed range    KU a 2, Okst a 3 and Isu a 3-4 seed.

Texas now at 4-2 is clearly in right now.   Them and Baylor prob in the 9 seed range

Our seed is totally dependent on Wisconsin. If they get the 1 seed, we get the 8-9, but if they fall to a 2 then we're a lock for a 7 seed.

The thought of getting 70% of the league in the tourney is insane when you think about it. The BE got 11/16 in 2011, but that's still only 68.75%!

Syracuse would be a terrible match-up. I'm glad this is just some dumb January bracket.

I've said it on here the last 2 years, but Lundardi (especially in late Jan-mid Feb) really isn't that accurate.   

He has Cal as a 8 seed.  They are 4-2 and have 5 losses overall.  Their SOS is 88 and they have 2 top 50 wins (Oregon and a Stanford who he barely has in).   He has Ucla as a 7 seed.  They are 3-2 and have 4 losses overall.   Their SOS is 24 but their only quality win is at Colorado.  And Texas is an 8 seed.   They are 4-2 with 4 losses, and their SOS is 54 and their 2 top 50 wins are Isu and Kstate.   

We are 4-2 and our SOS is 32, and we have 4 wins in the top 35.   And he has us below all 3 of those teams  :dunno:

Ohio st getting a 6 seed  is also pretty generous right now.  They are 15-4 and have no significant wins (only top 50 win is N Dakota) and the Buckeyes are 2-4 right now in the Big 10.

Yes this is late Jan bracket..... and things will change numerous times over the next 6-7 weeks...... and as of today I would have us as a 7 seed with he Big 12 having 7 seeds teams in

If the bracket is made based on where the author thinks a team will finish (and now where they are right now) then I'm fine with it. I don't agree with the projection for ISU, but if they go 14-4 in the league or something then they might be there.

From my experience at first round events (Oklahoma City, Pittsburgh, KC, Omaha, etc.), they're hard as eff to fill anyways. Oklahoma City might have been the only one where I felt like the whole arena was filled (thx to K-State & KU). Kind of irrelevant.

If the bracket is made based on where the author thinks a team will finish (and now where they are right now) then I'm fine with it. I don't agree with the projection for ISU, but if they go 14-4 in the league or something then they might be there.

Oh, hey Wisconsin! http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/bracketology

Am I right in thinking that a school cannot play an NCAA tourney game in their own gym? (which could be completely wrong). This is in reference to SDSU being slated in Spokane as a 2 seed while San Diego is a round of 64 and 32 site.

Correct. It's kind of interesting that SDSU is hosting this year since their arena is roughly the size of Bramlage.
From my experience at first round events (Oklahoma City, Pittsburgh, KC, Omaha, etc.), they're hard as eff to fill anyways. Oklahoma City might have been the only one where I felt like the whole arena was filled (thx to K-State & KU). Kind of irrelevant.

Where you not in KC last year?

Yeah, I listed that. It was pretty filled for the K-state and KU games, but not so much for the others. Plus, KCis an the exception. It's always been a college bball town. Pitt was an effing ghost town and I could see San Diego being the same. I mean, look at the Chargers attendance. Tourney games are best in a city with interest for the sport.

I really want to see us get up in that 6/7 seed range.  If we can get to 11-7, we will be there ( and yes Pat a 7 Ksu and 2 Wsu would be sweet)

At 10-8, could be harder to get a 7 and the 8/9 is more likely.

Bracketologies are about as relevant as polls in college basketball. They're just a way to gauge where teams are at the moment they're released. Other than their preseason brackets, I don't think guys like Lunardi, Palm, etc have ever claimed they were trying to predict where teams would end up in mid-March.

So with us falling to 5-4 and some people getting a little worried about our seeding and these next few games.....  Here is a breakdown of the some of the teams around us.   The seeding is how I see it as of right now, but you can at least compare the teams in and around the 7-10 range

Our 2 negative areas are our non con SOS  is over 100 and we have 2 bad losses, although the loss to No.Col was without 2 key players and the committee will be aware of that.  The good thing is the Big 12 is so strong, our overall SOS will continue to get better and could be top 25 by seasons end. 




Team/Seed    Record (Conf)   RPI     SOS    1-25    26-50      Other stat/comment
______________________________________________________________________________________________
7 UConn         17-4 (5-3)       32       75      1-0      2-3         Good win vs Fla
7 UMass         17-4 (4-3)       11       30       0-0     3-1         Good non-con SOS, 20
7 Pitt              18-4 (6-3)      18       55       0-3      1-0         No wins vs tourney teams
7 Gonzaga      19-3 (10-1)     26      105      0-0      1-1         No wins vs tourney teams

8 N Carolina    14-7(4-4)       39       18       2-3       1-0        Won at Mich St, Beat UK,Lville
8 K-State        15-7(5-4)       41       44       2-3       2-0        4 wins vs top 35
8 N Mexico      17-4(8-1)       33       71       1-2       0-0        Beat Cincy, Good non SOS 17
8 VCU             18-4(6-1)       28       91       1-0       0-2        Only solid win is at Virg

9 Minn            14-7(4-5)       35        5        2-3       1-1         Top 5 SOS
9 G Wash        17-4(5-2)       31       101     1-0       1-1        Weak non-con SOS 159, Beat Creighton
9 Cal              15-7(6-3)       40        48      1-3       2-0         Big win over AZ
9 Ohio St        17-5(4-5)       19        13      1-1       0-2        Good SOS, but Wisc only decent win   

10 Colorado    16-6(5-4)       25         7       1-3       1-1         Only 2-3 since losing leading scorer for season
10 Xavier        15-6(5-3)       48       57       1-1       1-3         
10 Prov           16-6(6-3)      37        62       1-3       1-0
10 Tenn          13-7(5-3)      42        12       1-3       1-1

For those of you who don't know..... Jerry Palm is way more of an idiot that Joey Brackets.   He had Ohio St as an 11 seed and they won at Wiscy (a team that has lost 5 of 6) and he moved them up 5 spots to a 6 seed.     Seriously??   

And then with Baylor being a 9 seed when they are 2-6 in conf.     I know the conf season is not over yet, but it is hard to make the dance when you are 2 games below .500 and I think I read there has only been 1 team to ever be 4 games under and sneak in.   Baylor has an uphill climb to get to 8-10, and even then there is no guarantee that record gets them in.

Yeah, that is mixed. I didn't blame the fans for being upset when he was hired. Nor do I blame them for being upset for last year's first round NCAA loss (even with the conference title). There was plenty of disappointment in both situations. But I think most fans recognize that oscar has done some nice things both last year and this year. Like any other coach if he continues to win to the expected level here, which is really make the tournament and have a run once in a while, he'll be fine.

If K-State can get to 11-7, we will be off of the 8/9 seed line and be in the 6/7 seed mix.  Gonna be pretty tough right now to get all the way up to a 5 seed.   6 and 7 seed are pretty similar... just depends on who the matchup/draw is.   Getting a 6/7, I think it is a good accomplishment for this team in the reg season

IF Wich st got the 1 and us the 8, there is a decent shot we would be in St Louis with them.  One deciding factor would be if a Big 12 team would be a 4/5 seed and put into that region first (and they are always gonna put the 4/5 seeds into each regions first)

Here are my current projections of 6-9 seeds entering Monday.    You can compare these teams with us.   I think Ksu is in the 7-8 seed
area right now.   FWIW, my 5 seeds are Texas, Iowa, Lville and Ucla.  10 seeds - SMU Cal Minn Colorado

           

Okie State is going to vanish from your list (although I note you said right now).  With Smart gone for the next 3, and the way the team is playing even with him, OSU will be lucky to win 3 more in Conference play.  That includes TCU and TTech plus a hot night/lucky win.  So unless they make some noise in the Conference tournament I don't see them going dancing this year at all.

They played a pretty solid non con schedule (22nd best) and that is why their overall SOS is decent, which makes their rpi in the top 15. 

They are currently 4th in A-10 right now behind SLU (who I think is a 6) and GW/VCU (who I have as 9s).   Right now their resume would have them around 7-8 seed IMO.   Best RPI/SOS and they have the most top50 wins of the 4 Atl-10 teams.   At the same time, they are not a team I would be afraid to play in the 1st rd of NCAA.   They still play at GWash and SLU/Vcu at home, so they may get exposed here down the stretch

Up to 30 in the RPI this morning...We've climbed about 15 spots in 3 days. KU still at 1 despite 6 losses. Also worth noting is Ole Miss is now at 56. If they can gain those 6 more spots we'll be 7-3 vs. the top 50.

I understand that RPI is flawed, but it is a tool the committee uses.

I had Ksu as a 7 seed before last night, but we were in the 7-8 seed mix.   Now we are a very solid 7 seed (and really no one can say we should be in the 8 vs 9 seed game).   A win in Waco and we will be a 6 seed IMO, but we will stay a 7 with a loss. 

7-4 in the best conference combined with 6 wins vs top 35 rpi teams.  That's big time.  No one outside the top 10 RPI teams have more than 2 wins vs top 25 RPI.  Kstate has 4.   And No team outside of the top 12 RPI teams have 6 top 50 wins (except for us)


If we limp to the finish and only win 2 more what will we get? 

Not concerned about that right now.  Mainly because I don't think that will happen.

K-State is currently 6-3 vs the RPI Top 50 and 8-5 vs the Top 100. Last year the Cats were 6-8/8-8 by comparison. If we can manage to pick up 2-3 road wins the rest of the way getting to the 6 line is likely.

Go 2-2 on the road and win our 3 home games...... and we are at worst a 6 seed.  Can't stress how important of a factor the Big 12 being the #1 conf is.  Every year the committee is very fond of teams that are in a great conf, have a good record in that conf, and have several wins vs the other good teams in that conf. 12-6 with 5 maybe even 6 wins vs top 50 teams in the Big12.   And our current SOS is a very solid 21

Do the above and its very unlikely we are the 4/5 in the Big 12 tourney.  Our win over Ku will get us to the 3 seed (maybe 2).

At this point, I cant see us going 10-8, so I think 11-7 would be our worst record.   And with that, I don't think we would be on the 8/9 seed game  come March.  5 seed will be our ceiling with a 6 or 7 seed being the more likely outcome

No problem Lefty.  We are pure analytics... just by the numbers. 

The KSU loss to NCol was indeed a killer that (unfortunately) the committee will not forget.  I would like to see KSU grab a road win in the next two weeks.  They will likely gravitate upward if this occurs, and/or if the other teams in the 7-11 range falter (like OSU and OU currently are).

BTW, not all people at Illinois were unhappy with oscar Weber.  He is a nice man.

Wow.  Lundardi actually has the same 6,7,8 seeds as me right now.   I knew he would come around.  :gocho:

As far as Mizzou goes.  They are not safely in.   CBS (J Palm) has them as a 10 right now.   That is being kind

If you are in the "Last 4 in" or you are an 11 seed..... then your place is not secure.  I would say Mizzou is in this spot right now.  The only win that could really help their resume from here on out is winning at Tenn.   The other games are ones they are suppose to win and should win.  So if they go 4-2 the last 3 weeks, I think they are right there on the edge or being in or out

Future Schedules could prove beneficial for our seeding. some teams around us could go through a rough stretch:

Gonzaga- finishes season with 4 away games in a row. of course this could vault them higher if they win out
Uconn- hosts SMU and Cinci but finishes at Louisville
Memphis- last 3, hosts Louisville, @ Cinci and hosts SMU
SMU- @ Uconn, hosts Louisville, @ Memphis
VCU- @ UMass and hosts SLU
Umass- hosts VCU and SLU

basically lots of bball to be played. this crap could go anywhere  :runaway: our seeding could be from 6-9

Saw this gem on the bracketology page comments on ESPN

Quote
This is some real big 10 hatred, or maybe just blind A10 love. How can Dayton be in the next four out but Nebraska not even be in any consideration for the tourney? Both teams are .500 in their respective conferences, but I think the big 10 is a bit harder (SARCASM) to play in than the A10. I know Dayton got a couple nice non-con wins with Gonzaga and Cal on neutral courts, but Nebraska's played a similar level of non conference (they just lost their big games) and has wins @MSU and at home over OSU. I also know that margin of victory doesn't matter, but Nebraska lost at home to Michigan by a point, they need some credit for that too. Sure Nebraska lost to UAB and had a couple tough road losses to Purdue and Penn St in the big 10, but Dayton's got such losses as Rhode Island and (ouch) USC on their resume. There is no way the A10 deserves as many teams in the tourney as the big 10 and more in than the ACC.

Last year we won the Big 12 and were 27-7 and got a 6 seed.


This year we are not winning the Big 12, currently have 8 losses and will almost for sure have at least 10 by Selection Sunday...I'd say a 6 is out of the question and 7 is a long shot.  Get ready for an 8/9 with Florida or Syracuse waiting for us.  Don't think we're lucky enough to get that 8/9 in St Louis with the Shockers.

 :bball:

Please don't post if you don't know what you are talking about.   Each year is different.   

Last year, we did go 14-4 in the Big 12 and go 27-7 overall.  However, our only top 100 win in the non con was Florida.  Now that was a very good win, but this year we have 2 non con wins vs top 50 tourney teams Gonzaga and GW, plus a win over top 75 team Ole Miss

Last year, we were 6-7 vs top 50 rpi teams.  This year we are currently 6-4.     This year, we had 2 losses that are not good (No Col. and Charlotte)  Last year our non con losses were not bad losses.   This year the Big 12 is the #1 rated conference.  Last year it was 5th

In 2011, we were 21-10 and 10-6 in Big 12.  Lost to CU for the 3rd straight time in Big12 tourney.    We only had 3 top 50 wins (KU and at Texas were impressive wins).    And we got a 5 seed

So 14-4 with 6 top 50 wins, and we won 2 Big 12 tourney games =   that got us a 4 seed with 7 overall losses
10-6 with 3 top 50 wins, we won 0 Big 12 tourney games = that got us a 5 seed with 10 overall losses
Each year is a little different.   I will admit, I had us being a 3 seed last year and I thought we were probably gonna get a 6-7 seed in 2011
Title: Re: The Official Bracketology Thread
Post by: TownieCat on February 17, 2014, 04:20:11 PM
Each year's resume doesn't exist in a vacuum. What other teams are doing has quite a bit to do with it. There are major variables every year.

For example, in 2011 there were 6 at large teams with 13+ losses, one as high as an 8. Two of the other 5s also had double digit losses that year. In 2010 we had 7 losses just like we did last year and got a 2 seed.

A couple more really quality wins (ISU, @OU, @OSU, B12 Tourney) could easily bump us up to the 4 or 5 line.

A couple more really quality wins (ISU, @OU, @OSU, B12 Tourney) could easily bump us up to the 4 or 5 line.

Yep each year is a little different.   The reason we got a 2 seed with 7 losses in 2010 had a lot to do with our RPI was 6 and our SOS was 2, and The Big 12 was the #1 or #2 rated conference.  We also had some real nice wins in the non con that year.   Last year our conf record was actually better than the 11-5 we were in 2010, but  our RPI was 21 and our SOS was 58 and the Big 12 was the 5th rated conference by the RPI.

Getting a 4 or 5 seed is likely out of the question.   The teams on the 4 seed line right now have quite a bit better resume than us
I thought if we could go 12-6, win at least 1 game in the Big 12 tourney, that we might be able to get a 5 seed.  Doing all of that is gonna be tough.  Right now, I think it is such a longshot, I am not even considering us for a 5 seed anymore.  I would love to play well enough down the stretch to get a 6 seed

We're still on the safe side. Just win out at home and we'll have 1 more Top 25 win and maybe 2 more Top 50 wins.

We are currently 6-5 vs the Top 50 and 10-7 vs the Top 100. Last year we were 6-8 and 10-8 for comparison.

We already played TCU twice. We have @TT @OSU, Home for ISU/Baylor. No easy games.

Hey.  Did you know we beat KU and UT? That counts for like 8 wins.  We could lose every game.  Doesn't matter.  Beat the hawks and horns.

They count as much good as today and last Saturday count bad.

I put stock in the last two games played being the worst games played since December. I think we are running out of gas, we'll see.

Its possible, I certainly wouldn't rule it out. But I see the problems in the two games completely seperate. We played solid defense against TCU the entire game, we just had a flat offensive effort after we got up early and had a bunch of silly turnovers. Honestly, I think Nino getting into foul trouble hurt a lot because he's great as the baseline swing guy against a zone and without Southwell we were in trouble. Plus we just played uninspired basketball.

However, in the OTs against Baylor (we played pretty good defense in regulation) and against OU our defense has been awful. If we don't play defense we won't win because we are a below average offensive team with major turnover problems. We are average on the offensive glass and don't get to the foul line a lot.

We'll have to see how we do Tuesday, it would be really big to win that game.

At this point I think it's more likely the Cats fall to a 10 than rise to a 7. ISU at home would be a significant win though.

I think we are gonna have to get 3 more wins to get off of the 8/9 game.   That could be going 3-1 to end the season or 2-2 and win a Big12 tourney game (very likely the 4 vs 5 game in the B12).   Like always it will depend on what those teams that are barely ahead of us do the rest of the year too.   

I had Memphis as my weakest 7 seed.  They have a good 20-6(10-4) record but only 4 of those wins are vs top 150.  Lunardi had SMU as a 7 while I have them as a 9.  Their non con SOS being 294 is horribly bad.  And the American conference has good teams in the top half and terrible teams in the bottom half (thus the 8th rated conf overall).  So the conf sched for SMU helps them some but their overall SOS is still 165(rpi 45)
**  Last year Oregon went 26-8 but non con SOS was 253 and their overall SOS was only 125, RPI 46.   They got a 12 seed

Would only take an 8/9 seed if we play WSU in the 2nd round.

Outlook
The Wildcats are a home court hero. They suffered their sixth straight road loss at Oklahoma on Saturday. They may have too many good wins to leave out entirely, but their seed will not be good if they don't ever get a good win on the road.

Would only take an 8/9 seed if we play WSU in the 2nd round.

Can you imagine shockernet if we beat them?

Would validate ENTIRE SEASON. :Purple Koolaid:

I would pulling for the Cardiac Cats so hard in that game.

soft bubble? that doesn't mean anything. The bubble looks like it always does; high majors with RPIs in the 40s-60s with a few bad losses and good wins, with perhaps a key injury or two, and mid-majors with good records but not good wins.

Post by: Powercat Posse on February 25, 2014, 09:26:19 PM
I will try saying this again.  We are not close to the bubble.  Wont be if we don't win another game.   

Tenn and Mizzou were both 7-7 in the bad SEC and had 1 top 50 win each.
Providence and St Johns each have 10 losses, are 8-7 in the Big East and  each has 1 top 50 win
Lunardi had all 4 in before tonight.   I would have probably had 3 of those 4 in as of this morning.... and the 3-4 teams barely not making it have just as bad a resume as these 4 teams.

The last 4-6 teams in the NCAA right now are weak.  Most, if not all, would not be in the dance most years

Yep, Mizzou lost by 15 to Ga.  St Johns lost at home to Xavier.  Both likely out instead of being those last 4-6 sucky teams barely in

Minn got a nice win over Iowa.  They are 7-9 in Big 10 now.  They are now more deserving that either of those 2.

There are a couple of sites out there that will show RPI, SOS, records against top 25 and 26-50.   I use ESPN for the most part. 
For my breakdowns, I look at each team in depth.   A top 25 rpi win over New Mexico isn't near as impressive as a top 25 win over Florida or KU.

If you really think people are worried about "the rise" of Wichita State, you're an even bigger dumbass than previously thought.  Only the most butthurt of 'taters would try to portray TSC'ing for K-State as a negative.

Is there a website that lists this top to bottom somewhere?

I wish we could play UMass', UNM's or Memphis' conference schedules. Our seeding would be swapped.

The only team on that list scares me is New Mexico. If we end facing them in a 8/9 or 7/10 games I'll be pretty  :curse:

Andy would probably rotate over late and just watch Baker dunk, kinda like he did after Sprads blew by Embiid with that sick crossover.

Lunardi does this sometimes.  Don't sweat it.   We could beat Isu and he could have us up to a 7 seed.     
If we win on Saturday that is exactly where we will be.... a 7 seed

*Memphis lost to a team whose rpi was higher than 150
*I thought Iowa was weak 6 or solid 7 seed coming into tonight.   They are 8-7 after their loss tonight.   They have 2 easy home games and at Sparty left.  The home wins wont do much since the opponents suck.

Both of those things were good news for us.

IMHO you can't compare a true road game to a neutral site game.  Especially when you consider the crowd intimidation factor that simply can't exist to the same level.  I would speculate all our road losses would have different outcomes if they were at a neutral court.

Also said I had no clue what our seed will be if we beat Isu.   That's fine, that's your opinion.   You are entitled to that my friend.

Joey Brackets has Duke 'Cuse Wisconsin and UVA as 2 seeds tonight. DO NOT WANT. Would prefer Florida WSU or AZ to any of those. Gotta hope we sneak up to the 6 line.

No doubt in my mind we're a 7 seed with Wisconsin being the 2 seed in our bracket.

Agree.  I think we could lose the next 2 and our 1st confy tournament game and still not be sweating too much on Sunday.  I also think the committee will throw out those 2 early losses and we will get off the 8/9 line if we can finish at least 2-2

It is ridiculous FAN. Of course Palm has Pitt as a 8 seed and they are 10-6 in ACC and have 1 win over anyone in the top 70 (Stanford). Plus a SOS at 87. He also has Memphis 3 seed lines better than us despite only 5 of their 22 wins coming from teams inside the top 145 RPI, plus a 11-5 record in the 8th rated conf.   Palm never really has been a very accurate bracketologist anyway.

True, but very few bracketologists (http://www.bracketmatrix.com/) have us above the 8 line right now. (granted, many aren't updated yet)

Eight top 25 teams lost Saturday. And that is not counting two games where both teams playing were ranked in the top 25.
If we lose @ OSU, beat Baylor, and win one B12 game, we will be a 7 seed or better.

Yeah, Im surprised he has us as the last 8 seed.  Its not in the above tweet but he had Iowa as 24 (or worst 6 seed).   I don't get the love for Iowa

* Ksu 10-6 in Big 12. Iowa 9-7 in Big 10.  Both teams 20-9 overall
* Ksu 5-5 vs top 50 rpi teams in Big 12.  Iowa 3-6 vs top 50 teams in Big 10
* Ksu RPI/SOS was 37 and 42.  Iowa is at 45 and 56...... And our non con SOS is 149 while theirs is 247
* Ksu in non con beat Gonz and GW (top 30 wins) and had 1 bad loss, Charlotte (No Col loss wont really hurt cause no Gip).
   Iowa in non con beat Xavier (top 50 win), no bad losses, no other top 100 wins.
* Ksu has 9 top 100 wins while Iowa only has 6.   Kstate only is 2-6 on road while Iowa is 4-5 (both have 3 wins on neutral court)

Its just crazy to me that we are even having this discussion (should we be a 7,8, or 9 seed).   When this season started, I (like most of you) felt like we'd be happy to be at least .500 and hopefully pick up a couple wins in the NIT.

This has been a fun team to watch and could/should be very good in the next couple years.  Regardless of seed, I just hope we get a favorable matchup(s) bracket wise that will allow us to win a game or two.

I've come to the conclusion that there is only so much you can throw out. Most rational people can clearly see we are a better team than the one that lost to those teams. In that way those games can be overlooked.

However they still effect our ratings to an extent and we still have 9 losses. We aren't looked at as a 20-7 team as if those games didn't happen. And when comparing teams that comes into play. Throw in our poor road record and our high number of quality wins (which is really good) unfortunately carries less weight than it should.

At the end of the day those two losses will cost us at least one seed line and maybe two, even if everyone wants to say they are thrown out.

I think it's a combination of them and the road problems.  Having success away from home would have erased those early loss concerns imo.  If we pull out those 2 W's @Texas and @Baylor I think we're talking about the 4/5 line right now.

im obviously no bracketologist _fence but i would think our road woes against even/sub par teams would be more of a talking point than losing two early season games with two major (i know jevon blah blah) contributors out. I was listening to fox sports radio this weekend during the VCU game and they were gushing GW and that was early in the year as well. I mean kstate is always a wild card in these things because people forget about us but that early season losses/wins against the zags and GW should balance each other out. they will look at who we have beat since december and we will get a pretty damn good seed.

Post by: Powercat Posse on March 03, 2014, 03:08:23 PM
Kstate's 2 negative things on our resume are the 1)the road record and 2)losses to NC/Charlotte.   Gip played vs Char but didn't vs NC.  Like FAN said, we wont be viewed as being a 20-7 team but the NC loss will be viewed as a "loss" and not a "bad loss" since we were not at full strength.   
 

We did not play a true road game in the non con.   We played 5 neutral court games.   So most teams have more road games than we do.  That said, 2-6 is not a good road record.    Iowa is 4-5, Ohio St 5-5, Texas 5-5, UK is 5-4.  Those are 4 teams in good conf who are between 6 and 8 on the seed line.   It helps that we won 3 games on neutral courts.  However this is still gonna cost us a few spots on the "S-curve ranking system"   If we lose tonight, win on Sat we will be 21-10.   If we were 21-10 and had a 4-5 road record..... I would guess our S-curve ranking would probably be 4-5 spots higher (So instead of being #28 we might be #23-24 in the pecking order)

Charlotte was a bad loss.  Having 1 bad loss is not terrible. Of course 0 is better.   Of the 11 other teams I have in the 5-7 seed line.... 9 of those 11 have a loss to a team 100 or higher in the RPI (Ohio St and Umass have 2 losses).   Texas, Lville have no bad losses


The good news for us is, good wins are more important to the committee than a bad loss.   Back in 2004, that was the case, but good wins are more valued today than they use to be.     Being in the #1 conference also is a very good thing. 
1) 2 wins in the Non-Con over top 30 teams, both of which will be in the NCAA touney
2) A 5-5 record vs top 50 teams in the conference.    Would be 6-6 if we split these last 2 games
3) 10-6 current record in the #1 rated conf.   Everyone knows Big 12 is good and 7 of the 10 are likely in the field as of today
4) So 12 of our 18 conf games appear to be against top 50 teams who are tourney bound.   Big 10 is 2nd best conf.  Iowa will play 10 of 18 and Ohio St will play 8 of 18 games vs conf teams who are top 50 (and in the tourney right now)

All 4 of those things are real postives for our resume.   If we were in a battle for a 3 or 4 seed like last year, all but the 10-6 conf record would have been nice positives to have.   But hey.... we are not fighting for a 3/4 seed.   We are fighting to get to a 6/7 seed.

I don't think the committee will consider any circumstances about our NC and UNC losses except that they indeed did happen.  Zero consideration will be given to not having Gip for NC, for example.  I'd be shocked if anyone in the room even so much as mentioned his name.

You have your wish. As a general rule, the committee has said "missing players" is taken into consideration for losses not wins. This was brought up recently when Oregon beat UCLA who was missing two starters due to suspension. Oregon gets full credit for the win, UCLA will have the missing players taken into consideration for seeding.

The committee focuses on the team you have available to play in the tourney, and how that roster performed. That's why losses when not at full strength get treated differently, because that's not the team you're fielding currently. It's why losing a player before the tourney hurts seeding, because the team that built the resume isn't the same one playing in the tourney.

In general I believe that the bracketologists are not very good at their jobs.  Their brackets will change a lot in the next two weeks. In the last couple of days you will see Lunardi's bracket magically change as he starts getting insider info from friends inside the committee.

To do a valid bracket prediction you have to set up projections for every team in the bracket.

With three straight losses, Kansas State could be sitting on a 11 or 12 seed. 

With 5 straight wins, Kansas State could be sitting on a 4 Seed maybe even a 3.

I am of the opinion we will go 2-2 and be a 6 seed. Our RPI should look good as we should get another top 50 RPI win and I don't think we will have another opportunity at a bad loss.

One thing that would really help us is to look good tonight on Big Monday. This will be a highly watched game by the committee as it is the only thing on and both teams have weird resumes. 

OSU without Smart for three games (losses)

KSU road vs. home record.

Lunardi and Palm are really the only 2 that get national pub.   I have said for several years that Palm is way worse than Joe.  He will just have 4-5 teams that make me go  :dunno:.    Earlier this year, he had some team (cant remember who) jump up 6 spots in seeding from his previous week.  That right there tells me enough

There is always 1-3 teams that end up getting a better seed that most experts predict and 1-3 teams that get a worse seed.  Oregon getting a 12 was very shocking last year.  Vcu got a 5 seed and no one had them that high. 

Right now, I think the team who is 23 on the S curve is not far away from team 30.  Ksu going into tonight should be  in there somewhere (between 23-30)   But I think the separation between the teams who are 24-25 and the teams that are 15-16 is a pretty good margain.   Likwise I don't think Ksu is really close to overall #37, which would be the best 10 seed

* They don't use an S curve anymore but they do rank the the teams.... so I call it the S curve rank

Yeah, I get that. Just struggling with the diff between a 1 seed and a 9 being road wins at isu and ou.  The point being, if they're a 1 surely were a 5 or a 6.  Or if we're a 9 how the eff are they a 1.

Our SoS is in the 20s out of 300+, is that substantively different than 1 of 300+?

How can a team with 7 losses lay claim to a higher seed than teams with 3 losses who beat them?  RPI is fine, but shouldn't be the end all be all of the NCAA tournament. 8 years or so ago Missouri State was a top 30 RPI and didn't get an invite. This year RPI is all of the sudden gospel. Dumb

Mich St was a 1 seed in 2000 with 7 losses.  That is the last time (and maybe only time)

With Cuse loss tonight.  I think KU/Wisc are the best 2 candidates to be the 1 seed Cuse just gave up.   Some peeps also like Duke... but here is why I would say no right now=

KU = 7 losses, 12 wins vs top 50, RPI 3, SOS 1
Wis= 5 losses,  8 wins vs top 50, RPI 5, SOS 2
Duke=6 losses, 5 wins vs top 50, RPI 8, SOS 9

What about 8 or 9 losses?

To my knowledge..... 7 is the most.   And  I think 2000 is only year 7 losses got one

The win @BYU was big for them.

However, I'd much rather have a win over the #2 RPI team* at home than a road win at BYU or OSU.

*Even though 6 other teams also boast this win and it is kind of watered down.

The road losses are a big deal to some, probably most.

ESPN bubble watch has us as a lock

I think Palm is basically saying we are a lock too, but he under values our good wins because they are all at home.
so beating the zags in wichita doesnt count but beating a team like isu or baylor in kc does?
yes
but he said neutral court? seems to me they are the same scenario  :dunno:
The big 12 tourney is much more of a neutral court game than say the game in Wichita against the Zags, yes, imo.

We won't know until the brackets are released, but I doubt there will be a significant difference between 7, 8, or 9s. Of course, there might also not be much difference between a 1 or 2. Depends on who we get. So whatever, let's just get the highest seed we can get.

of the peeps who updated the brackets, we have a handful of them who had us at 6/7 seed and about the same who had us as a 10/11.       People just need to quit worrying about what Palm thinks. If ok st losses in Ames, their road record in conf will be 2-7 just like us.  He had baylor as a 9 too.  They went 1-7 vs ku/isu/OU/UT ...the 4 highest rated teams. We went 4-4.

If Osu and Baylor lose on road this weekend .... Osu will be 3-7 on road (beat rpi 185 USF along with WV TCU) Baylor will be 3-6 on road (OK ST, WV and Tcu)

The difference in being a 7 instead of an 8 or 9 is a 2nd round game against Arizona or Florida that I deem totally un-winnable compared to a Nova/Duke/Wisky that is maybe not quite as totally un-winnable.

I would love to play any of the teams seeded 7-10 here with the exception of New Mexico.

Also, didn't the NCAA change their rules a couple of about how early conference opponents could meet? Can't they meet in the 2nd round now? Would be interesting to see how that plays out if OSU, Baylor, and K-State all end up on the 8/9 line and KU gets a 1.

If we're an 8/9, why wouldn't they match us up with WSU?

I think WSU is the only 1 seed we'd even have a chance against.

I know you like to repeat this point, and its fair.

But it will be different playing at a neutral site (especially an easy to travel to neutral site like St Louis) than playing on the road. While I don't think we'll play as well as we do at the OOD, I also don't think we'll play as bad as we do in true road games, especially on defense. I think we have a really good shot in the 1st round game, but if we play a 1 seed in the 2nd round it will be tough. Those games aren't impossible, but 8/9s only beat 1s about once every other season.

Last year it seemed like the media was using "the motion offense is so difficult to prepare for" narrative very often with oscar's team. I don't think I've heard it yet this year. I'm hoping this statement actually comes into fruition this year. Especially if we do get past the 8/9 and the 1 seed has a day to prepare.

It was more difficult to prepare for the motion offense last year because we had 5 capable 3FG shooters and this year we only have three. One of those is Shane, and he's only made 7 3s over the last 8 games he's played (4 of those came in 1 half).

The SOS are all jacked on that.  Espn has some flaws in the system for whatever reason.   I look on there a lot and they now have the road/neutral records screwed up if you click on an individual team.    They have every team as playing 0 neutral games.   For us they have us 3-8 on road and 0-0 in neutral.   It wasn't that way all year..... but like I said ESPN has some flaws in their system from time to time

Something that may be getting overlooked is that the Big 12 top to bottom is clearly the strongest conference this year. We could land 7 in the dance and see all 7 in the Sw16 depending on the brackets. K-State could very well be a top 10 team. All Big 12 final four? Possibly. I like our chances against anyone on a neutral floor from a different conference.

I think the rule is that if you play a conference opponent twice in one season, you can't play them in the tourney until at least the sweet 16.  So no big 12 match ups until then.

I would have these 8 teams as 8/9 seeds right now ---  Baylor, Oregon, GWash, KState as 8 seeds.  Gonzaga Iowa OK St and Ariz St as 9 seeds

10 seeds -- Stanford Colorado Nebraska SMU.   


IF we can beat Iowa St, I think there is a good chance we are wearing the home grey jerseys 1st game NCAA.   Have to win that one before anything better than a 8 seed can be talked about

Correct, all three Kansas schools could be in StL with two of them in the same region or they could be there with all 3 being in the same region and that doesn't even need to be the Midwest. WSU will be the 1 in the Midwest, we hope that K-State is the 8 or 9 there too. Wouldn't be odd if KU it's the 2 there as well. I gotta think that one of the first four teams will get sent to StL as well to play the 7 if KU gets sent there as a 2 or anyone else in StL as a 2 like Michigan or Wisconsin. Milwaukee is also a pod site so I'd assume the Big 10 teams would get sent there. WSU and or KU might also end up in San Antonio.

If Wisc or Mich win the Big 10 tourney... I think they are in good shape to get last 1.   Villanova is also in good shape to get it.

I also have those same 4 teams as my 7 seeds.  If we could beat Isu, is it possible that we could get onto the 7 seed line?  Sure it is possible but what other teams on the 7 seed and 8 seed line do also will have an impact. 

Little bit about the 8 seeds = 
1.  I acutally think ArizSt is a 9 seed.  They have lost 4 of 6 (2 of those losses to non tourney teams).  They went 10-8 like us, have similar rpi and sos as us.  They have only 4 top 50 wins.   4 road wins but only 2 of those are teams 150 rpi or better.
2.  Iowa finished 9-9 in the Big 10 , and lost 5 of last 6 games.   They had 5 top 50 wins.  They had 4 road wins (2 vs top 100, 2 in the top 150).  They don't have a bad loss.    They went 4-8 vs top 50 Big Ten teams while Ksu went 5-7 vs top 50 Big 12 teams.  Their SOS and rpi are a little better than Ksu.
3. Oregon won 7 straight game to get to 10-8 in Pac 12.  They got 3 of their 4 top 50 wins on this streak including beating top 5 team AZ.  They had a very solid non con going 12-0 with a win over 1 top 50 team and 4 wins over top 100 teams.  And that is why their rpi and sos are both in the top 30

9 seeds--
1. I actually have Baylor as an 8 seed instead of ArizSt.   Won 7 of 8 to get to 9-9 in Big 12.  Like us, they also had 5 top 50 wins vs Big 12 teams.  Our wins are better but they swept us.   Good non con that included 10-1 mark with 3 top 50 wins.  SOS is 10th.
2. Zags went 15-3 and 25-6 overall.   Best wins are BYU and Ark, so not a lot to show there. 2 of their conf losses were to teams above 150 rpi.   They have a nice record, their SOS is only 106.... so they look like a typical 9/10 seed.   
3. I have SMU as a 10 seed (and have Ok st as my last 9 seed).   SMU went 23-8.  4 of those wins are top 50, but their 5th best win is vs rpi 124.   So it shows in their 130 overall SOS and 301 non con SOS.    They went 4-4 vs Lvile,Cincy,Conn,Memphis.... the other 4 teams in their conf that will be in the tourney.   
4. I acutally had GW as the worst 8 seed (had Iowa as the best 9).  They went 11-5 in A10.   Went 2-4 vs top 50 teams in the A10.  Beat Creighton in the non con giving them 3 top 50 wins for the season.   Their SOS is only 93.   They appear to be a typical 8/9 seed, but I think they would have to win the A10 tourney to get up to a 7 seed.

wouldn't play in st Louis as a 7 seed, because likely KU and WSU will be there for the second/third rounds and we cant play KU in our second game.

Conference tourneys are basically meaningless unless you beat someone WAY better than you, or lose to someone way worse than you. So, KU is going to have to hope and pray that the other 1 seed candidates lose to some shitty team in their first game.

Conference tournaments aren't really supposed to bolster your resume and the committee hasn't ever treated as such. October-February should and does carry more weight than 3 days in an NBA gym or NFL stadium. That being said I love championship week.

KU is a 2, there isn't anything they can do about it. They're closer to a 3 than a 1. There are too many teams that are fighting for that fourth 1 seed and you really can't expect all of them to lose to teams like Maryland, Clemson, Minnesota, Indiana, and Seton Hall. The committee won't punish a team, for losing in the conference tournament semis and they shouldn't.

And, it may actually matter what the committee thinks about Joel's status.  Bill had better be telling anyone who will listen that Joel will be back.

5 - KANSAS STATE WILDCATS

Plenty of teams in college basketball soar at home but then crash on the road. There's perhaps no better example than Kansas State, which is "Popeye-just-ate-his-spinach" powerful in Bramlage Coliseum (named "The Octagon of Doom") but "Superman-in-the-presence-of-Kryptonite" impotent in Big 12 road games.

Kansas State is somewhere in the vicinity of a 9 seed (give or take a seed line) at the moment. The Wildcats are safely in the field, and what's more is that a lot of critics (this one included; one must admit when one is wrong in this business...) were skeptical of this team's ability to get to the NCAA tournament, given oscar Weber's tenure at Illinois, in which he inherited really good players, won at a high level, and then couldn't sustain that level of success with his own recruiting classes. On Dec. 20, Kansas State was an NIT team, but Weber -- to his great credit -- developed a team that was strong enough to beat almost all of the Big 12's best competitors at home. That was more than enough to get the Cats into the field.

Now, Kansas State arrives at the Big 12 Tournament. These aren't home games, true enough, but they're not pure road games, either. Plenty of KSU fans will be on hand for this event, and with the Wildcats landing in Kansas's half of the bracket, there's a great chance to reach the final, given the health problems plaguing KU big man Joel Embiid. If Kansas State can get hot on a neutral court and win the Big 12 Tournament, it could rise to a 6 seed. At the very least, the team could get out of the 8-9 game and land at a 7, thereby avoiding a No. 1 seed in the round of 32. That's definitely something to play for.

Sorry Breads.  I think it takes more than just beat Michigan.   ILL went only 7-11.   You have 4 top 50 wins but only Mich St win is a win over a good seeded team (Iowa gonna be a 9, Neb a 10/11 IMO and Minn is out as of now).  Big 10 is solid conf and ILL played tough conf sched, but your non con SOS is 182 and only top 100 win in non con is Mizzou

Would take all the way to an E8 matchup with Duke, because the Shocks want no part of Baylor in the second round.  WSU has not seen a team with the size and athleticism of the Bears.

Also, look at the KSU v. Wisconsin second round matchup.  The Cats just can't avoid the Badgers.

So Brad Evans of yahoo sports says the breads are looking "rock solid" for the ncaas if they beat meatchicken.  I like the cut of this guy's gib and am very confident in his credentials to make this call.  #nailsversusrocks #solids

Sorry Breads.  I think it takes more than just beat Michigan.   ILL went only 7-11.   You have 4 top 50 wins but only Mich St win is a win over a good seeded team (Iowa gonna be a 9, Neb a 10/11 IMO and Minn is out as of now).  Big 10 is solid conf and ILL played tough conf sched, but your non con SOS is 182 and only top 100 win in non con is Mizzou

pfft, I bet you every dollar I got that Iowa won't be a 9. They have lost 6 of their last 7.

Chill.  That is where I had those teams as of y-day.   It was just a reference point trying to tell the Breads that only 1 of their 4 top 50 wins in the Big 10 was a against a good seeded team.   I probably should have said "probably about a 9" instead since tourney weekend isn't done yet.

FWIW.... Last year the Breads went 8-10 in the Big 10, lost 4 of their last 6, and got a 7 seed.  No one had them any better that the 8vs9 game.    Iowa getting a 9 seed would shock me a lot less than ILL getting that 7 seed last year

So on Monday, Lunardi had us as a 8 seed and Ok St as a 10.
Ok St beats almighty Tech.   Ksu and OK St lose close games to good teams that are both gonna be top 4 seeds.
And Lunardi now has OK St 3 spots higher than us on his "overall seeding rankings"

Gotta Love Lunardi rationalization.    By Sunday, I wouldn't be surprised if we somehow end up higher on his rankings that Osu....lol

I haven't been following closely but the other 8/9 teams haven't done much recently right? I think we'll be there, hopefully with WSU the 1.  I have little confidence right now we even get out of the 8/9 game though  :frown:

I think right now KState would be 33 or 34 on the " overall seed rank".  So that's a 9 seed.  IMO, I feel we are closer to being #32(the worse 8) than the #37( best 10). I just dont think teams like Ariz st, Colo, Iowa and Pitt should be ahead of us....so I feel an 8/9 game is in our future

Guys, I am going to go out on a limb and say KState is the last 8 seed (#32 on the overall ranking).   I could see us being anywhere from 32 to 36....but will be very surprised if we are a 10 seed.     

If we get that 8, I think we will likely play a Pac 10 team.   If we get a 9 seed then I would guess we get Memphis or UMass.  I think our chances of being in St Louis are pretty good.     Anyway.... here is what I got

1 seeds =  1. Florida  2. Arizona  3. Wich St  4. Michigan
2 seeds =  5. Nova   6. Wisconsin  7. Virginia   8.  KU
3 seeds =  9. Iowa St  10.  Duke  11. Lville  12. Syracuse
4 seeds =  13. Crieghton  14. Mich St 15. Cincy  16.  SD St

5 seeds =  17. Ucla  18. N Carolina  19. UConn  20. OU
6 seeds =  21. VCU  22. N Mexico  23. Ohio St   24. SLU
7 seeds =  25. Kentucky  26. Baylor  27.  Texas  28. Oregon
8 seeds =  29. UMass  30.  G Wash  31. Memphis  32.  KState

9 seeds = 33. Gonz  34. Ok St  35. Stanford   36.  Colorado
10 seeds = 37. Iowa 38. St Joe  39. Pitt  40. Ariz St
11 seeds = 41. Nebraska 42. Tenn  43 Prov
Last 4 teams in =  SMU, Xavier, Dayton, BYU

K-State is somewhat likely to matchup with WSU in the second round.

Why?

Wichita is 90% going to St. Louis as the one there to keep them as close to home as possible.  KSU is a potential 8/9 seed.  With St Louis holding an 8/9 game because Wichita is playing there, KSU would be a decent fit to be close to home.  Memphis playing us there in the first round would keep them fairly close as well.  NCAA sells out of tix quickly

Dangerous team.   They are playing Mich so late today that I think they already have MSU's seed already set.  IF they would have played and beat Mich yday.... I think they would have been a 3 seed.   They still could be a 3. 

Louisville also a team that is clicking on all cylinders right now.  Dangerous 3 or 4 seed there too.

I think Wisky gets 3, LVille 2.  Maybe KU gets a 3 but even with all their losses, tough to have the best team from the best RPI conference lower than a 2.

Yes, WSU is likely to be a 1-seed that will start in St. Louis.  How does that relate to K-State being an 8/9 seed there lined up to play them?

I could've picked any number of posts to point out the myopia that goes on when we who are highly invested in K-State think that anyone else gives a eff about us or any other team in our range.

KU and WSU will start in St. Louis.  That's good enough geography-wise.  The filler teams that will also play in St. Louis may be close or may not but it won't really matter.

And I don't think they GAF about a WSU-KSU 2nd round matchup.  That has appeal to Kansans, and especially us for lol-bbs purposes.  It has no appeal to non-Kansans.  Kansans will likely watch either team regardless of opponent, so it'd actually be better to separate them and have more markets be interested in more games.

I hope we play Thursday night causing me to not even take a chance on playing in my own pickup game before my thumb's fully healed.  Someone let the committee know.

Louisville's overall SOS is 97, which is high.... and their only non con win in top 50 is So Miss ( a team who may not even make tourney). 2nd best non con win is Missouri St, 84 on rpi.     

The bottom half of American Conf is extremely weak.  So 12 of Lville's 18 league wins are vs teams 143 or higher in the rpi

His new bracket has us a 10 seed and OU as a 6 seed in the bottom half of the Midwest region. (He also has Texas as 8 in top half of MW bracket).       Committee almost always avoids having 2 teams from same conference  in the same (top or bottom) of a region.   Big East had more than 8 teams in years past and they had no choice then.... but with the Big 12 getting 7 teams,   expect only 1 Big 12 team in a bottom/top of a region

Michigan went 17-4 in all its game in the Big 10 (counting tourney).   Virginia went 19-2 in all games vs ACC.
Mich's conf SOS was ranked 7th hardest coming into today.  Virg was 87th

Mich had 7 wins over Big 10 teams in top 50 who are in tourney. Beat rpi 54 iowa who is in tourney. Beat rpi 50 Minn twice (I think Minn is out)
Virg had 5 wins over top 50 team in ACC who are in the tourney

Mich lost 4 games in non con. best win is Stanford rpi 42
Virg lost 4 games in non con. Best win is SMU rpi 55

Michigan > Virginia ...  when speaking of who should get the last 1 seed
Lunardi now has Virg as the last 1 seed

Kentucky's only real good win was Lville.  They also beat Prov and Tenn (both tourney teams).
But they did have 14 top 100 wins..... I guess the 11 wins vs teams that were in not 100 but not tourney bound didn't impress committee
UK also had a SOS of 4.   

I thought they would get a 7 seed ( I had them as my best 7) but thought them getting a 6 could easily happen

Them getting an 8 seed is more shocking than us getting a 10 seed.   

However, those of you that were wanting us as a 10 seed..... a 7 vs 10 UK Kstate matchup could have happened.

No one will be picking us.  So lets go shock everyone.... and then play the Shockers

Guys, I am going to go out on a limb and say KState is the last 8 seed (#32 on the overall ranking).   I could see us being anywhere from 32 to 36....but will be very surprised if we are a 10 seed.     

If we get that 8, I think we will likely play a Pac 10 team.   If we get a 9 seed then I would guess we get Memphis or UMass.  I think our chances of being in St Louis are pretty good.     Anyway.... here is what I got

1 seeds =  1. Florida  2. Arizona  3. Wich St  4. Michigan
2 seeds =  5. Nova   6. Wisconsin  7. Virginia   8.  KU
3 seeds =  9. Iowa St  10.  Duke  11. Lville  12. Syracuse
4 seeds =  13. Crieghton  14. Mich St 15. Cincy  16.  SD St

5 seeds =  17. Ucla  18. N Carolina  19. UConn  20. OU
6 seeds =  21. VCU  22. N Mexico  23. Ohio St   24. SLU
7 seeds =  25. Kentucky  26. Baylor  27.  Texas  28. Oregon
8 seeds =  29. UMass  30.  G Wash  31. Memphis  32.  KState

9 seeds = 33. Gonz  34. Ok St  35. Stanford   36.  Colorado
10 seeds = 37. Iowa 38. St Joe  39. Pitt  40. Ariz St
11 seeds = 41. Nebraska 42. Tenn  43 Prov
Last 4 teams in =  SMU, Xavier, Dayton, BYU

*Of those 47 teams... 46 made it in (NC St made it over SMU).
Lunardi only miss was also having SMU in and NC St out.  Palm also only miss was having SMU in and NC St out

*I got 22 of those above with correct seed.   Lunardi got 20 right.  Palm got 16 right.

*Only 2 of those 46 I was off my more than 1 seed line(UMass got a 6, UConn got a 7).
 Lunardi had 7 teams he was off by more than 1 seed line.    Palm had 8 teams that he was off by more than 1 seed line. 

I said all along that Lunardi is better than Palm, but neither was an almighty Guru of bracketology.  Some ordinary KState sports fan can do a better job predicting.

Exactly right.  Last year, Villanova was the overall 38th ranked team (meening 2nd best 10 seed).... but they got a 9 seed cause making them a 10 had its conflicts.   So Colorado was the 36th overall ranked team got a 10 seed.   This is just 1 example
Title: Re: The Official Bracketology Thread
Post by: Powercat Posse on March 17, 2014, 12:22:30 AM
Kentucky was 29th overall seed.  N Mexico was 28th.   Had those 2 been switched.   We could have been playing N Mexico.  And UK could have been a 7 seed with 2 seed KU

KState was the 33rd overall seed.   Colorado was 32.    So we could have been the 8 seed playing Pitt with 1 seed FLA lurking, and CU could have been playing UK in the 8 vs 9 game in St Louis

Pitt definitely easier game than UK, but I am glad we are not in Fla bracket

yup, welcome to the party shocks just leave your keys with the DD and grab yourself a red solo cup b/c it's time to play some beer pong right now and then prob do some crazy crap like jump off the roof into the pool.  b/c that is where you're at now shocks, it's time to play the big boy game and none of this school yard crap.  come bring your a game shocks.  of course you are now scared and walking away shocks b/c you don't  have big boy stones gmafb shocks, get out of here with your weak crap.

shocks = ketchup
k-state = shrimp cocktail sauce with tons of horseradish

BRING IT.

Kentucky was 29th overall seed.  N Mexico was 28th.   Had those 2 been switched.   We could have been playing N Mexico.  And UK could have been a 7 seed with 2 seed KU

KState was the 33rd overall seed.   Colorado was 32.    So we could have been the 8 seed playing Pitt with 1 seed FLA lurking, and CU could have been playing UK in the 8 vs 9 game in St Louis

Pitt definitely easier game than UK, but I am glad we are not in Fla bracket

Louisville and Kentucky are good/dangerous teams in the top half of the MW bracket.   That said even though I had each of those 2 teams a line higher on seeding..... Lville was ranked 13th overall (I had them 11) and UK was 29th overall ( I had them 25).  Bottom line, if you want to make the Final 4, you better expect to beat good teams to get there. 

The only top 4 seed that I really don't think can make the Final 4 is SD St.  They play great defense but they have a hard time scoring the ball and N Mexico was close to beating them 3 times (SD ST had to rally to win at home by 3.  NMex won other 2 games).   Extremely balanced field and if the over/under was 1.5 on the number of 1 seeds that make the Final 4..... I would take the under.

Michigan Cat... I cant say 100 percent that those overall rankings are official.  Last year, the Monday after selection Sunday I found an article than listed all 68 teams by ranking... and when i checked Wikipedia that same day, they also had the teams with overall rank (and both had the same ranks).  I could not find any article yet this year on overall rankings..... so hopefully this one I posted is correct.

I can see why people care what Joey Brackets thinks about in Feb and March.    No clue why anyone gives a crap what he thinks about 2nd week in April.
