GET A MAP! ...and Drexel can stop whining
Only a few things wrong with the brackets today. A lot of people are upset I'm sure that since we seem to be the team with a long streak over other good teams that we should be the overall #1 seed. Perhaps, but then Florida could say, they beat us without
So let me look at my map here....hmmm, here's a state shaped like a penis ready to plop its way into the Bermuda Triangle...and here's another state next to a body of water that borders Canada. Both have #1 seeded teams in them. Committee?
Woman on Committee: "Hi, I'm Barbara, I'm a double token woman from the Sun Belt, can I be in charge of placing those two teams in regions since you won't let me do anything else?"
Head of Committe: "Yes Barbara, you may, and while you're at it go ahead and compare Arkansas's numbers with Syracuse's and get back with us on your results."
So why do I care about this so much? I bet you both remember. As I've mentioned the
Onto what everyone is bitching about, Drexel...(crank up sarcasmator)
Look, just because they finished 4th in the vaunted Colonial Athletic Conference doesn't mean they should have to settle for the NIT. I mean c'mon, the Colonial Athletic Conference deserves at least 4 teams in. We go through this every year...The Big Ten gets over half of its teams in, as does the ACC, the CAC deserves some credit as well. They're not just a Chess conference anymore people! It's not like there's a clause that says anyone who finishes behind Hofstra shouldn't get in! (Barbara, get to work on that for next year. Yes sir!) I can only imagine how the writers of academicsaremoreimportantthansports-bias.blogspot.com feel. Let's go through and breakdown the Dragons season. (Oh I get it, a somewhat creative mascot that uses alliteration, that doesn't reek of small school at all)
Just a few weeks ago on November 18 we won AT Vermont! You don't just stroll into Catamount
Now as far as our south bracket...I love it! We couldn't have asked for a better 15 to share it with. Sure we didn't get the overall #1 seed in the tournament, but if you had asked which #1 seed's bracket I'd take, it would be the south. I think we can beat Xavier or the Fighting Mormans. I'm not going to share my picking strategy with everyone for fear that they'll do the opposite and win bigtime. But here are a few tips...
1. Find teams that Reader Wise roots for, choose against them.
2. Don't pick a 15 seed to advance, that's crap, it won't happen this year either.
3. Look at the number of senior starters a team has...if there's one with a child in the stands know that he will he playing hard because he needs to make it to the NBA. He was too busy fucking to study.
So good luck to all.
About yesterday's performance, a solid A. When Twig hit that 3, I heard echoes of the announcer of Gibson's game 1 home run. Wisconsin knew they must have been in trouble at that point. Sure he still missed a layup, but his "Lean on Me" defense made that zone strong.
