Projecting the NCAA tournament field of 68 - College Basketball - Rivals.com
Don't take this guy too serious...he has Purdue as a 5 seed :goofy:
I don't have a huge problem with KSU above ISU, but I don't know if it's 6 slots on the S-curve.
Several things even worse about that projection.
* Purdue as a 5 seed. Can't see it.
* Northwestern in, but not as play-in; Texas out.
* Florida is higher than a 7
As with any bracket, plenty of it is fine as far as the field itself â€” seedings seem out of whack in places.
Note: KState is considered higher seed.
I don't take him seriously... But it is my obligation as a Cyclone fan to point out any media outlet that doesn't favor ISU :jiggy:
It's clear that some "experts" value the big win more than consistency, or avoiding bad losses - to a fault.
I hate the use of the terms "higher" and "lower" in reference to seeds. About half of the people mean one thing and the other half mean the the exact opposite. I've always thought of a "higher" seed as better, so your thread title made me pause for a minute.
I try to stick to "better" and "worse" in reference to seeds now.
I'm sorry... It confuses me :unsure:
You're right; higher seed is the better team.
Confuses me too... I get why people think both ways... that's why I personally think better and worse are terms that no one can confuse for this.
Anyway... I don't get how K-State should get a better seed than us at this point.
KState has more quality wins than us, I am not offended by this projection. If we win another game we will jump them.
But we swept them... And we swept OU, who swept them....
KSUs resume is a little better than ours, especially their top 25 record (4-3) vs ours (1-4), and that they have 2 top 25 ROAD wins. Both highly valued by the committee. I'd be surprised if they aren't a higher seed than us come selection day (unless we win out :spinny:.
And if we lose to Missouri, they would have swept Missouri, who swept us.
By "better," do you mean higher or lower. :jimlad::cute:
Anyway â€” Considered as a whole, ISU & KSU resumes have become nearly indistinguishable at this point. A few things in each team's favor:
Team comparison ISU vs. KSU
I realize we may see head-to-head sweep as a tiebreaker; but that isn't an official selection factor (not to say it is never considered)
That really is a horrible tournament projection.
KSU also has 4 conference home losses. That has to count for something.
If you want to know how whacked out this guy is....he has the frickin Billikens of St Louis as an 8 seed.....yes they are 2nd in the Atlantic 10, however, their RPI is below Iowa States and their strength of schedule is 107th in the nation....
Seriously, i dont understand the RPI....
Its not based on schedule....
Its not based on wins/losses....
if that were the case, how is Uconn right behind Murray State....29th and 30 ahead of ISU at 32...
Uconn 17-11 and 7-9 in conference SOS #1.
Murray State 25-1 and 15-1 in conference with SOS #184.
Iowa State 21-8 and 11-5 in conference with SOS #60.
not really sure on how that ranks out that Murray State is 29th, Uconn is 30th and ISU is 32nd.
It's the secret sauce, obviously...when you factor that in, it all makes sense ;-)
Half of the RPI is the W/L of your opponents.
Yea but it wouldnt be a thread if KState had a worse ranking than us. 2+2.
