...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.

There may be time. He seems to think he could possiby play in the Final Four if Michigan got there. And the darft entry deadline isn't until April 27th.

Both of those things happened because of conference championship games, the football equivalent of the BTT. And a playoff will be an extension of a conference championship game, rewarding the winner of a game or small number of games while devaluing the regular season...Also, Wisconsin only went to the conference championship game because OSU (and IIRC PSU) were barred from appearing. That situation was very unusual.

He probably just needs to show he's healthy in workouts to put himself back into the first round, if the latter part of the first round.

Thanks for writing this up so thoroughly...And good luck at Davidson.

I should have said strength of schedule when I said RPI in that post.

UVA lost to Green Bay and lost to Tennessee by 35 points.

Should force ESPN to display this post in a panel at the top of the screen at all times.

SMU was the last team out per the head of the selection committee. Their RPI was something like 125. The worst RPI of an at-large bid was something like 90. SMU's out-of-conference RPI was also in the 300s.

UVA is a poor man's Wisconsin. Villanova and Cincinnati both play in dubious conferences. Cincinnati has been terrible on offense when I've seen them.

I'm not sure they'll combine for 80 points.

...view college basketball from a tournament-means-all perspective, but most people do. So the perception of Michigan in the eyes of recruits and others will be driven by what happens in the tournament.
|17 hours 27 min ago||I don't like that...||
...I wish Michigan was the 14th team right now. Winning the Big Ten wasn't worth it from a tournament-means-all perspective. Better to play some weird guys and land in the East.

...about college basketball. It should never seem even for a second like a whole season was eclipsed by a weekend's worth of games. This is why I don't long for a college football playoff.

The NIT went and got all high and mighty on us this year.

When I think of the Boilermakers, I think of Johnsons. Now Purdue Pete isn't even going to have one Johnson? Odd.

I'd like to announce that I will be playing for the Lakers next year too.

Has Michigan ever defeated OSU in the conference tournament? The years of being knocked out by them have created a memory haze for me.

...I very much hope no one is expecting anything in particular in the BTT or the NCAA Tournament. The nature of a one-and-done tournament is to bite you in the ass pretty often.

I hate these games, where you have little to gain and much to lose and the other team is in the opposite situation. Michigan has some major flaws - as we've always known - and needs to work on their offense against a 2-3 (which I assume most teams don't throw at Michigan much because of their shooting). But I will take a win in a box or with a fox. Time to move onto OSU or Nebraska.

I'm not talking about little green men, just bacteria (or something similarly small).
EDIT: I guess that doens't really fall under the umbrella of astrophysics.

I always associate Musberger with the way he botched that situation. He referred to the men in an article as "black-skinned stormtroopers." This was taken as a Nazi reference by many.

Is there an easy way to embed the video? I can't get it to work.
