    Not a single advanced metric I’ve seen has had X in the top 4 at any point this season (I️ don’t think I’ve seen any with them in the top 8, either.) They are certainly very good, but they are certainly overrated.

    We can play this game all day. That 25-2 run is irrelevant if the ref makes the right call on the Blueitt 3...

    X got outscored bigtime after that run for Butler to be tied... why should the ref give them the benefit?

    Seriously... this is hypothetical, but if a ref calls two cheap fouls on Kelan 5 minutes into the game, and he has to sit for most of the first half, that could be the reason Butler gives up a 20-2 run... Butler has other players, but Kelan is irreplaceable

    Kelan has an incredibly low foul rate and should never be sat for an entire half. That would be a tremendously poor coaching decision.

    Only if you could expect that the refs wouldn't continue to make bad calls. If O'Connell is calling the game, that's not a reasonable expectation.

    When it comes to X nothing would surprise me, but they certainly have an opportunity to make a run to the final 4. They do have the necessary ingredients.

    seadawg you are absolutely right. This may be an extremely competitive NCAA tournaments. X definitely has all of the elements to make a deep run or even win it all.

    except intelligence, they sure make a lot of dumb plays that I feel like will eventually cost them. Bad turnovers late game, bad fouls

    You’d then at least have consistency which is all anyone asks for

    Consistency? You must not be familiar with O'Connell's work.

    If you make only bad calls it is in fact consistent. Consistent has nothing to do with good.

    God, never in my life have I ever looked up who a referee is before, and then I met O'Connell...I forget which year it is, but he was especially bad to Butler I think 3 years ago?

    I feel like you are more eloquently making my point. Well done sir.
