          My phone must be broken. Only showing one mo valley team in. Wasn’t something else supposed to be happening after we left because there would be more parity

            Now they all have an equal shot at that 15 seed.

          I was told Illinois State was going to dominate after we left. Then Loyola was going to swoop in and dominate after their Final Four run. lol

          It is what it is, a cyclical mid-major conference.

              The AAC reminds me of the MVC 10-15 years ago. There's likely to be some cannibalization as some of the mid-level teams are going to beat teams on the bubble. One significant difference is that the mid-level teams in the AAC get more respect than mid-level Valley teams used to get. Long-time established and respected programs get more of a benefit of the doubt than Valley teams ever got.
              The future's so bright - I gotta wear shades.

                  OU doesn't belong - if they get in they might as well take every team from the Big 10, ACC, and SEC and say "piss on everyone else."

                  Sometimes I wish the big schools would just start their own little post season conference tourney and exclude all those non Power Conference schools that they couldn't beat on a neutral or away court anyway, just so I wouldn't feel compelled to watch. Then it would be just like football season, and I could change the channel or just turn it off. OU didn't belong last year (look at the result) and they certainly don't belong this year. Its not like anyone anywhere in the NCAA hierarchy has an ounce of INTEGRITY anyway.

                  Because the selection committee continues to have a power conference bias. I don't care how tough a conference is, if you're not good enough to finish .500 or above, you don't deserve the opportunity to play for a national championship

                I remember a discussion on MVCFans a couple of years ago. Some of us WSU fans were saying the MVC would soon drop below the 12th-rated RPI conference. Everyone else said no way, that WSU leaving would have very little effect and they would remain a top-10 conference. So let's check in on how the Valley is doing in that department:

                RPI
                9th - .5315 - MAC
                10th - .5191 - Ivy
                11th - .5054 - A10
                12th - .5049 - Southern
                13th - .5013 - MVC
                14th - .5010 - C-USA

                Just barely hanging on to 13th, behind the MAC, Ivy and Southern conferences.

                It's worse in KenPom where they are 16th, additionally behind the WAC, MWC and Sun Belt. They are closer to 17th than 15th.

                You have to include as many Big 12 teams in the tournament as possible to ensure the rest of the field has enough teams to beat in the first round.

                  I don't care what their RPI or NET is. You have to actually WIN games. Going 3-9 in your league doesn't demonstrate winning.

                  And besides the RPI and NET numbers are meaningless. They've taken teams with RPI's in the 70's before for at-larges. It's all a farce.

                  Moving away from Lunardi -- and if this belongs in an other thread somewhere, accept my apologies -- I thought it was interesting that Taylor Eldridge in his mailbag the other day suggested that if WSU takes care of business from here on out, especially at home, they could well be headed for a middling NIT seed like what Temple received last year.

                  Too bad West Virginia likely has no chance at any postseason play anywhere; it might be nice for the Shocks to get a bit of sweet revenge on them for conspiring with the NCAA to deny Teddy Allen this season on the court where he'd have made WSU at least an NIT lock, and most likely a bubble team for the NCAA.

                      Guess who is a member of the NIT selection committee.

                      None other that our old buddy Doug Elgin.
