They can realistically beat anyone in the nation, but they just seem to play their worst in big spots.
Don't get me wrong. They're a good team. But, their frontcourt is no good. Teams like Kentucky last year are the ones who win in March. Anthony Davis was DOMINANT last year and took over games without having to score.
Cool, I'm well aware of the formula. That doesn't change my point at all. There's no evidence that the committee gives gives a **** about it. ESPN just threw in a stat of their own and assumed that it's going to have an impact when a most of the people on the committee are old men with no intentions of doing anything new.

Should have firmed up my stance with Buffalo's upset chances today. They're a decent team at home and Akron was set up for a let down after the Ohio game. I knew they could do well in the battle of the big guys, and McCrea did not disappoint. He is playing damn well right now and they deserved this win after a couple heartbreakers.
This certainly hurts Akron's at-large chances. Figured this would be their last test before the tournament and it is just not a good loss for them.
