Maybe it’s my hatred for Michigan but I’m still not sold on them. I think if all the 1seeds they’ll be the first to be bounced.Saw a Twitter argument about Baylor vs Michigan and how Baylor’s loss @Kansas after a COVID pause wasn’t anywhere near as bad as Michigan’s. Saw there loss was also Q1 and was curious to see who it was... Minnesota. Man I hope the Big 10 gets spanked in the NCAAT to put some of this to rest.

BracketMatrix: We're in 95 out of 116 brackets with a avg. seed of 46 (prev. 53/100 w/ avg of 11.42)
This is the first time I've seen us above the line in bracketmatrix!!!
Bubble games to watch:
Indiana @Michigan State
Fresno State @Boise State
We are last in on ESPN’s updated bracket today. I actually like the position we are in here. I think it’s crap we are last team in, but we would have some really favorable matchups here and could really make a run.
Yeah I think with the committee we aren’t the bubble team that the media makes us out yo be. I think the committee will mostly dismiss the first two loses, because if we played those today we would easily win both. That, along with our close losses and top heavy conference schedule, we should easily be in the pod of teams considered as the third/fourth/fifth best team in the conference with UVA and FSU being the clear top two. I just hope that if the committee see us that way, they don’t slap us with a 8/9 seed.That article on Colgate I think is good read on what’s causing the NET to be so off base this year. As the article mentions, hopefully the committee understands this.
