The east is easier. Others not so much.
|15 hours 28 min ago||People need to stop being so||
People need to stop being so wimpy, we are talking about a 1 seed. Go for the win and the 1 seed. Stop worrying and fretting so much about every matchup permutation. "We" are the team that people should be looking at afraid to play. I say with the exception of a few teams...bring on everyone.
|15 hours 34 min ago||In my opinion it's us||
In my opinion it's us (especially if we win), then UVA (if they win), and then nova. I think nova lost it's chance at the 1 with their early exit. Nova's resume just doesn't hold up.
|15 hours 52 min ago||I agree with this entirely. I||
I agree with this entirely. I think people are forgetting the road to the elite 8 and just looking at the 1 or 2 seed. Fact is 1 seeds have friendlier brackets than 2 seeds and that is reflected by historical results, which show 1 seeds performing better than you would expect based on being slightly better teams than 2 seeds.

This sucks? I suppose it speaks to how much we have progressed as a program that people are saying "this sucks" to the idea of getting a 1 seed. Also, I think a 1 with Nova as the 2 is better than a 2 with Wichita state because it's likely we will

I think it's due to their strength of schedule which isn't great. I think they end up a 2, though.

I refuse to root for msu. We can settle it ourselves in the finals. The way I look at it is we are either going to be a 1 in the east or a 2 in the Midwest, with Wichita state as the 1. I'm fine with either outcome.

We don't have to play msu or Wisconsin until the finals, I'm not sure how our road is the toughest.

If I remember it was part of a 4 or 5 way tie for 8th which we aren't part of anymore and dropped.

I just wish ESPN would actually reveal their specific methodology and not just the general idea. I am curious as to what it is that is dragging our ranking all the way down to 22 when all the other major computer/objective rankings have us much higher.

Tom Izzo overcame the greatest misfortune of catastrophic injuries ever witnessed by a division 1 basketball team, and his team has only lost 2 out of his last 3 games when at full strength. I vote him instead.
|1 week 14 hours ago||The one way I can see Kansas||
The one way I can see Kansas dropping is if there are concerns on their center Joel emblid is more hurt than originally thought. He missed the West Virginia game they lost and this news recently came out from espn analyst Fran fraschilla today on twitter.
|1 week 14 hours ago||I think those people are||
I think those people are definitely the minority. Frankly, I don't think he would have played much the last 2 years, as Griii or if we played big Mitch would have beat him out for the 4 and the group of Mitch Morgan and horford would have beat him out for the 5. I have no hard feelings if he saw the writing on the wall and wanted a different role elsewhere.

He is getting beaten regularly on defense

Even if I give him a break for that, there are many other reasons i dislike him - mainly his general asshat demeanor.
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree that they are a very||
I agree that they are a very solid and good team. I'm definitely not in the doubters camp who belittle an undefeated season regardless of level of competition. I'm just saying that it's tough to argue with the idea that they would have a few more losses in the big ten.
|1 week 1 day ago||They also benefited from a||
They also benefited from a similarly overrated gonzaga as the one seed in their bracket. I would be curious to see how they would have faired against other high seeds such as Louisville.

it is west virginia we are talking about...
|1 week 5 days ago||Also, 2 teams that we are||
Also, 2 teams that we are battling with for seeding in that 2-3 range Iowa State and Creighton both lost to unranked teams today. Here's to hoping we put ourselves on the 2 line.

They were without appling as well...at some point we have to give them credit for dealing with injuries - even if Izzo talks about them a lot.

A friend of mine is a student manager and tells me that we will not be seeing McGary anytime soon and that the back injury has reduced him to essentially water aerobic workouts and no real basketball activity. He didn't think the team had a time table in mind with him.

Having GRIII, McGary's best friend, already locked in the class undoubtedly helped in that situation though.
