Same right back at ya, Reb.

Good luck to your Rebels, I hope they can get in the tournament. Although I hope we beat you in the MWC tourney, but it will be tough on your home floor.

Alright, I have posted my newest Bracketology (everyone please read and comment). It looks like there were only four votes this time, but everyone went for Team B.

Team A is Miami (FL)

Team B is Arizona

FYI both teams are in my bracket as #10 seeds.

Im think a team C could be introduced ...lol...but for now TEAM B prevails

So who are the teams Lobo?


Patience Reb,

I will reveal the teams when I post my latest bracket. Which should happen sometime after the conclusion of the Michigan St./Illinois game.

If you want a clue here's a clue: You should know team B, I believe they were beaten by a team you are familiar with.

Yea i think its got to be team B...the better wins outweigh the bad loss in my opinion. also .500 or worser records are hard to overcome come selection time.

Im think a team C could be introduced ...lol...but for now TEAM B prevails

So who are the teams Lobo?

Its obviously team B in my book. Not sure who they are but neither seems like a mid major.

Oops, sorry for the double (now triple) comment.  CBS told me the original post was lost.

I also typoed in the first post, where it should read "Team B has a lot of good things going for them" (not Team A).

I'd give the nod to Team B.

Granted, Team A has one less loss, the slightly (but in my view insignificantly so) better RPI, and the stronger SOS.  Their worst loss is also better.

But I think Team B has more positives.  Going .500 in a conference is better for Team B than being a sub-.500 team in a conference.  Assuming these are all major conferences, I don't think there's a significant justification for a 1 game disparity in the standings.

Also, the records vs. the RPI Top 25, Top 50, and Top 100 are all better for Team B, both in terms of win percentage and number of wins, and are approximately comparable in volume.

Plus, I tend to prefer strong wins more than bad losses.  Team B's two wins against two teams near the Top 10 (especially if that's two different teams) is a lot better than a win against a top 15 team and a top 20 team.

It's close, but I'd give the nod to Team B.

I'm leaning Team B.

Their RPI's are insignificantly different, and Team A does have the stronger strength of schedule, and one less loss.  They also have the slightly better worse loss.

However, Team A has a lot of other good things going for them.  They've got the better conference record, and I think it's hard to overcome a sub-.500 conference record, no matter how good the conference is or how unbalanced a schedule might be.

Also, the records vs. RPI Top 25, Top 50, and Top 100 all favor Team B, both in terms of win percentage and number of wins.

Lastly, I place a lot of value on the top wins, and for Team B to have beaten two different teams that are close to the Top 10 in terms of RPI speaks volumes for their ability to win on the big stage.  Team A's wins against a top 15 and top 20 team just don't quite compare.

It's close, but I'd give the nod to Team B.
