    And we think Palm is a joke...

    So I'm passing some time this afternoon checking out the Bracket Project Matrix, noticing that we are in 80/81 of the published projections. So I check and see which one is leaving us out and it's some blog called Big Underdog. Go to check it out and sure enough, we're out!

    BIG UNDERDOG

    The most ridiculous part of it is that two days ago before the Texas game this same guy had us as a #6 seed. So...we lose one game on a neutral court to a likely tournament team and according to this guy we go all the way from a Top 24 seed to being completely out of it. Funniest thing is that we're not even in the Next Four Out or even the Next Six Out.

    I'm not getting my panties all up in a bunch just because this one guy has us out, but I thought it was worth posting just so we could all point and laugh.

    So we went from a 6 seed to not even in the next 10 out with a loss to UT. Thats comical.

    Re: And we think Palm is a joke...

    He dropped us at least 55 spots because of the loss to Texas. The smallest drop possible would have been from #24 to #79. Could have been more

    Re: And we think Palm is a joke...

    I figure the only reason we are not even mentioned is that he forgot us.. That is not something that is even feasible with a loss to a likely tourney team.

    K State and TX in but not us. Funny, but would be so freaking wrong if it did happen.

    Yeah, one would hope so, but even if it is just an honest mistake it's hard to take him seriously if he could just forget about a team that he gave a #6 seed two days ago.

    This is why these guys have these sites. Create controversy to gain hits. Nothing to see here.

    Re: And we think Palm is a joke...

    To quote Larry
    “Where is there doubt about the NCAA tournament? Is there doubt? They are talking about Mississippi State at No. 71. We are 13th in RPI and 48th in strength of schedule. There is no doubt that we are in this tournament. We always get better off of loses. Things work out for a reason. People who say we are not in the tournament, are idiots. They are idiots. They obviously aren’t going by what the NCAA is going by. The criteria is based off of RPI and strength of schedule. You are not allowed to factor anything else in. So, put that in your pipe and smoke it. See what you come up with. Some guy on TV said “I would really be mad if Southern Miss makes it in and South Florida doesn’t.”

    “We beat South Florida! The guy didn’t even know that we played them. That is what we are dealing with—some idiots. This (the tournament) is just like the BCS, it is a machine. There aren’t 12 basketball coaches in that room, it is a computer.”

    Re: And we think Palm is a joke...

    Isn't it difficult to forget something that you either write out or type out? He could just look at what he already had and decide what changed/didn't change.

    Maybe he's not real precise in his methodology, and he did just forget. Looks like he's either forgetful or sloppy, so a true professional is he.
