    Pretty much sums up my thoughts.

    So Lunardi has the B1G getting 11 teams in, even though Indiana will fade away, but that’s 80% of the league. If that’s the case, the BE should get 80% in, right?

    But won’t happen. Too much money with the Big Ten.

    Losses today by Michigan State, Nova and West Virginia should help our ranking Monday if we take care of business tomorrow.

    Yeah this ESPN narrative that the 2020 Big Ten is by far the best conference in the country and basically the best conference "top to bottom" of the last decade is tiring.

    It's an absolutely terrific conference.

    It also has fewer top 16 teams than the Big East, and 2 sub-100 Kenpom teams (Big East's worst team is 78).
    Average Kenpom rating for the BigTen is 37.6, Big East is 41.2.

    So subjectively they're going to get the benefit of the doubt come selection Sunday of course, but objectively they're not radically better than the Big East in any of these measurable categories.

    Maybe the B1G and the BEast should do a head to head, instead of the B1G and the ACC.

    That was my initial thought. But given it is actually made by the committee, and given the accuracy of the early reveal over the last few years, it’s more meaningful than I initially thought.

    I’m somewhat disappointed that we’re only 15 (thought we may be more like 12), but at the end of the day, a 4 seed would be great.

    But the BIG universities are much bigger as is the pure number of alumni and thus more dollars. The NCAA and ESPN will always promote the BIG over the BE.

    Yeah, I thought our NET and combined Q1/2 wins (which I believe is top 5 in country) would get us to the 3 line. I am hoping we can make it to the 3 line but it will probably take a 6-2 finish and winning a game in BE tourney. Win all 4 at home, win at Xavier, and win 1 of SH, marq, CU. To get in the 3 line depends a lot on what the other top teams do.

    First time watching Duke. Visually I think we could beat them.

    And somehow UNC gets outscored 14-5 in the last 1:53 to go to overtime. Egad.

    Going to be a tough couple of weeks for the Dawgs. I can see us going 4-3 ending the conference season. I think the difference between landing as a 3-5 seed depends on how we we play at MSG. We would need as many BET tournament wins as possible since there will likely be Q1 neutral court games.

    I am just hopeful we can stay out of the 8/9 line. if we go 3-5 and lose in BE tourney, that might put us there. I think we stay out of the 8/9 line if we hold serve at home against inferior opponents
