    Good lord Andy Katz...Georgetown at 5 seed!?! I know they should continue to improve and could definitely make the tournament but with a pretty soft non-con this year (Texas and Syracuse are the standout games and neither team is a tournament guarantee by any means), Georgetown would need to win a heck of a lot of BE games to get up to a 5 seed.

    Me thinks Andy really likes Patrick Ewing.

    Yurtseven is the reason why. IMHO

    Obviously he's got some upside and their 3 talented sophomores should continue to get better, but do you know how good Yurtseven will have to be to adequately replace Govan?

    He is that good. I would not bet on it though.

    I don't only cover Butler haha! I can't let any bias show through in my national pieces so I try to stay as objective as I can.

    You do a great job of staying objective. I would never accuse you of being a "Homer".

    No I don't think we're in 5 seed territory yet. But it could happen. I think we'll easily make the tournament.

    I don't think our OOC schedule is that soft. If you go by last years NET/Kenpom we have:
    Penn State 49/43
    Texas (N) 33/25
    UNC Greensboro 68/87
    @ oklahoma St 72/83
    @ SMU 94/107
    Syracuse 50/39

    and if we beat Texas we get Duke (N) 3/4

    so that's 3 Quad 1 games assuming we get past Texas and 4 quad 2 games.

    • Quadrant 1: Home 1-30, Neutral 1-50, Away 1-75.
    • Quadrant 2: Home 31-75, Neutral 51-100, Away 76-135.
    • Quadrant 3: Home 76-160, Neutral 101-200, Away 135-240.
    • Quadrant 4: Home 161-353, Neutral 201-353, Away 241-353.
    We also have a Quad 3 game in Georgia State 126/124. Samford 161/144 is just on the cusp of making it a second. Also only having 1 NET 300+ team on the schedule should make our NET and SOS pretty good.

    If we don't beat Texas then it takes a hit, but we have plenty of opportunities to pick up quality wins for the metrics and every BE game should be at least a quad 2 game except for DePaul and St. John's.

    Interesting that people get paid doing awesome jobs while being out-of-touch

    Goes to show some of these national writers don’t watch any games in certain conferences.

    I mean, to be fair, that Katz preview is from September 30.

    It was posted the same day it came out, not in the last couple days.
