I’m on the fence, or maybe I’ll call it a bubble, for being into it

Selection show off to a less than ideal start with the audio and video not syncing up.

This is a terrible way to do this - no drama. What idiot bullied their way to making this decision against all voice of reason?

Syracuse in instead of Louisville and ND out. At least they didn't put ND in based on 'potential'

USC is the main bubble team that some had in that is out.

Other than that, everything is about what was to be expected.

Texas Tech/Stephen F. Austin in Dallas could be interesting.

A top 25 team. They got the shaft.

I feel like a top 25 team got left out last year too.

Of course OU got in...

Dook and UNC seeded 2 - guess the strategy is to play like crap against each other recently so you can both claim how tough each other team is..

Nice. Someone has to explain the - 'they would have won x more games with <player y> not injured' method of putting teams in the tourney. There is no way you can account for that fairly across all teams - so basically the default needs to be win/loss SoS, etc.

Using this theory - JG should have gotten us to the tourney if Mike Thorne, Tate, KN, etc had not gotten injured during the season.

ND beat Witchita State, Syracuse, Florida State, Virginia Tech. They were KenPom 31, two teams higher in KenPom did not make it (St. Mary’s and Penn State.) Alabama was KenPom 51, Oklahoma 47, St. Bonaventure 69, etc., etc. BPI 33, same story. ND had a case as legit as all the other bubble teams. As will all the bubble teams, they could have won a couple more games too.

I used to eagerly look forward to selection Sunday. It’s lost it’s luster without Illinois being part of the conversation. Maybe next year☺️
