"What about Kansas' wins is so impressive that they're better."
As everyone has said, they have more wins vs Top 50 RPI teams than anyone. But what hasn't been said is how they have beaten some of those top 50 teams.
The number speak for themselves:
Beating #19 RPI K-State twice, with one of them being total blowout.
Beating Ohio State in their own backyard with little problem.
Smashing #23 RPI Colorado by 36pts
Smashing #28 RPI Belmont by 29pts
And a couple of others that were easy double digit wins.
The point is.. their top wins have been either total blowouts, or very comfortable wins.
3 of the 4 losses are to teams with RPI's ranked 9th (neutral court MSU), 18th (@OU), and 30th (vs Ok St). And of course there is ONE bad loss.
If/When they win out, they will then have at least one more top 50 win, and although they are RPI #61, I think Baylor will climb into the top 50 and add another blowout win over a top 50, and another soon to be road win.
KU's Big wins > 3 good losses and 1 bad loss any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
They will only be a 3 seed if they lose 2 of their last 4 games, which some think will happen, but don't count on it.
If the selection committee had to decide today, KU would easily be a 2.
So I think I answered your question Josh, now it is your turn. Are you saying that they are a 3 seed based on 1 bad loss, despite all their big wins? Please try and explain.. TRY.
Indiana is a virtual lock for a #1 seed but the rest are up for grabs as far as I'm concerned.Not even close. No locks for a 1 seed and none will likely be when tournaments start.
Miami is hot right now but they have some of the worst losses of any of the top ten teams.Maybe Florida Gulf-Coast but Indiana State is not a bad loss.
Gonzaga is questionable because their best wins are Kansas St and Ok St.Why is that bad? That is really good and actually their best win is technically Oklahoma and the winns are away from home.
Right now the only other two teams that I'd give the nod for a 1 seed would be the Orange or Michigan...even if they did have a bad game against the SpartansMichigan maybe, although I think they are slightly behind MSU. The Orange are not a 1 or even a 2 seed right now. It's too crowded right now up above and what they have won't cut it. If they beat GTown then that may change.
Why is it that Michigan St is on the 1 line right now but Louisville can't be?Now onto this. Well Michigan State may be a one seed they are likely currently a 2 seed. Louisville is in no way a #1 seed right now. They are a 3 or 4. Likely a 3 after Cuse vs GTown. (fat that moment, who knows about later).
How bad is that Charlotte loss for Butler in anyone's opinion?Not bad at all. Charlotte is a team that many people have in today. However it is bad in a sense that it'll likely keep them from getting one of the top 2 seeds. If any loss really hurts them it is the one to Xavier.
And what about Davidson to college of Charleston??? They always have a solid team, but in no way possible should beat Davidson TWICE!!!!Says who? They don't have Steph Curry anymore. Plus look at Old Dominion. They used to be consistently good and now they are garbage. Davidson was good with Curry and without him they were nothing special. This isn't Gonzaga we are talking about.
Misinformation from a drunk friend....lol.... Who did they just beat that was a bubble??? CofC?
