    Re: Baylor doing us no favors

    Couple of things:

    1) baylor losing is good. They won't fall out of the top 100 RPI if they lose out. That is still a good road win. Without that win, ISU and Baylor would be switched in most bracketologies.

    Baylor struggles because

    A) Lost 3 players to the draft (PJ3, Miller, and Acy) any team that loses that many players will be down besides power programs.
    B) No wings, 2 guards. Walton and Heslip play the other guard spots besides Jackson. Walton is a defender, that's it and Heslip is a 3-point shooter that's been off all year. 4 points combined against Texas won't get it done.
    C) Austin is passive in the paint and has attitude issues. Reportedly threw his glasses at his coach during a game and always complains about calls. He also would rather shoot 3's then work in the paint.
    D) Scott Drew is getting exposed a bit. With only a couple reliable scoring options, he struggles at getting everybody going. Got out coached last night by Rick Barnes pretty badly and Hoiberg in both games this year.

    They should be pretty good next year without Jackson.

    Re: Baylor doing us no favors

    I hope Scott Drew stays at Baylor for a long time. They'll still be 0-fer @ Hilton for some time it does seem...

    Re: Baylor doing us no favors

    He recruits long wimps that hate contact that's why they suck. Acy was perhaps the biggest reason they went as far as they did (Jackson not-withstanding). Only long non-wimp they have had.

    Agreed. Acy was their physical presence. It is amazing the size that Baylor has on their squad and how soft they are. It is almost pathetic. Niang is a skilled guy in the post but there is no reason he should be down on the block pushing Austin around. It is almost too sad to be funny.... almost....

    That's a positive way to look at it. Probably best to view it that way, too, since it didn't look like Baylor was playing well enough to crawl back into top 50.

    An extra two top-50's would be nice, but ISU is down to play-its-way-in — not going to get much extraneous boost from opponents in the portfolio.

    Pure luck. The highest seeded team Baylor beat in their two elite eight runs was #10.

    and without A.J. Walton and likely Isaiah Austin? I'm not so sure about that. I don't see how next years Baylor team is going to be any better than this years.

    Re: Baylor doing us no favors

    Baylor is EASILY the most under-achieving team in the country this year. It would be between them and Kentucky.

    But Baylor has loads of talent on their roster, but their head coach is just horrible.

    Re: Baylor doing us no favors

    At what point does BU realize Scott Drew can't coach and gives him the boot?
