    That was speculation on my part, at the time I didn't see any real scenario to get it done considering they were discussing only playing 1 game each day with co-champions at that point. I figured it would be easier to get it over with and avoid the headaches... What they did was really the best they could do with the situation. Although people got screwed out of tickets, it worked out because it would've been an absolute mess to have first come/first serve tickets.
    Obviously you do not understand the context in which you say things and how they will be taken. For that, I will forgive you.

    I basically gave up after the Patterson injury, figured we'd have no chance. After that, we lost by a few inches AT the #1 overall team in the nation... Won at USC on their Sr. day/coaches final game at home then beat Florida on Sr. day.
    So you should be rewarded for almost winning? It's like saying you should be punished for barely squeaking out wins versus lowly competition like USC, LSU, Georgia, Auburn, etc,. But I bet you will not be willing to say that, would you? Sound logic in that one.

    And as I said again, USC and Florida are garbage teams. Not even teams that are going to the tourney.

    Since Patterson's injury (averaged 16 points and 7 boards), Jasper/Harris/Stevenson have picked up their averages by 15 points and 7 boards combined. Role players have stepped up and we are playing just as well.
    And this has what to do with the overall record, quality of competition, road wins, SOS, RPI, etc., that actually factor into things?

    You're right, playing @Indiana (pre-Sampson firing), UNC, Louisville, Vandy (twice), Arkansas and UT (Twice) is absolute trash. Every team has cake games mixed in, you're a fool to think otherwise.
    First off, never refer to me or anyone else as a fool. Being a Christian man, I have to say that is quite a bit offensive.

    And again, you do not understand context. Please keep up or lets end this discussion, mmmay?

    That was said in reference to the win streak that has allowed you to even get into the discussion of being a NCAA tourney team. You were 7-9 (1-2 in conference) at the point you went on this mini-run. Those RPI's and teams were who you played to get to 18-12. Those garbage teams you played in-conference are what allowed you to get to this point.

    Three of those games you listed were OOC. Still yet, you had the 99th SOS, which shows how horrid the teams you had played were.

    I mean, look at this ..

    *RPI in parentheses

    Central Arkansas (280)
    Gardner Webb (200)
    Liberty (256)
    Texas Southern (320)
    Stony Brook (325)
    Tennessee Tech (279)
    Florida International (263)

    Find me another 'bubble' team that even played close to the horrid nature of this schedule.

    Please follow and understand.

    Ok? Sorry we won the games we were supposed to? We also beat THREE top 25 RPI teams, what other bubble team has done that? Probably a Pac-10 team or two that beat up on Arizona, that's it.
    NCAA bids are not rewarded for beating up (actually, squeaking by) on crap teams. At least they should not be.

    You know why we're a bubble team? We have no quality road wins, just like pretty much every other bubble team...

    Our overall SOS is 22, we've beat 3 top 25 RPI teams and if they're thinking Virginia Tech gets in, there's absolutely no way we shouldn't. The fact that Virginia Tech is even discussed is a joke.
    Virginia Tech plays in the #1 rated RPI conference in America. The are the 4th best team in that conference (just by season rankings). You wonder why they are in the discussion? Look no further than playing against quality teams who played quality competition throughout the year. That is why they are in the discussion.

    But again, you don't understand the context in which things are said. Quality road wins is another thing in which hurts your overall resume. It was only one thing brought up by me (among many) that shows how weak of a potential NCAA tourney team you are.

    In the end, we'll have to agree to disagree, but any fan outside the 'Cat faithful can look at the numbers rationally and pretty easily determine that Kentucky's resume is pretty weak at best.

    • Can someone either sell me on Wisconsin, or confirm my belief that they will not do damage in the tourny. I think they are a #2 seed for sure, but I just don't buy them as a contender.

      Basically, someone tell me why I should have the Badgers getting past round 2, because at this point I'm not so sure. Perhaps it's just because I don't know much about them, but if that's the case then I'd appreciate the enlightenment. :)

                Looks like Kansas is going to win... but still I would go Texas then Tennessee then Kansas in terms of the last #1 seed. (That's what I think it should be, I doubt it'll turn out that way though)

                  it will be Kansas...they deserve it terms of the way the season ended for them, but I personally think the same as you...Texas still looked really good, just couldn't buy a bucket in the last 4 mins absolutely murdered their chances, good game by KU though no doubt

                  • Kansas did impress me today. Chalmers is the real deal and he's gunna be huge for them in the tourny. I think depending on the seeding and the matchups, I'll prolly have them in my elite 8...I don't know though they just make me nervous.

                    An interesting fact I noticed on the ESPN scroll while watching the game, UNC has made the final four 11 out of 16 times after winning the ACC tourny.

                      • Kansas was very impressive.. if they can continue to play at that level they will be a force to reckon with

                          • C'mon Georgia, hold onto this one. Love those cinderella teams.

                            • so what does everyone think the seedings are gonna be...I'm only doing 1-4:

                              1: UNC, UCLA, Memphis, Kansas
                              2: Tennesee, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgetown
                              3: Duke, Stanford, Butler, Louisville
                              4: Drake, Purdue, Pittsburgh, ND/UConn

                              I have Pitt in there because for some reason winning the conference tourny and being above average leads to a high seed (see Iowa in 06, average season + tourny champ = 3 seed) and I think Duke's loss + GTown making their Champ game, then Gtown takes Duke's 2 seed

                              • haha what was Georgia's conference record, 4-12? If they win, the last team out will be pissed.
