        That's awesome. He seemed to be well liked among everyone there...fans and all.

        I am happy for him.

          IDGAF about anything his says about WSU after that stupid comment.
          Hates WSU. Seth Davis has little man syndrome. Is he over 5' tall?

            Disagree. If a team is made an 11 or a 12 than the committee obviously thinks that team is more deserving than 16 or 20 of the lower seeds and it shouldn't have to play its way in. If not, than that team shouldn't be an 11 or a 12. Make all the 16's a play in game. But actually the play in games are silly anyway. Either expand the field or do away with them.

              I agree. It's crappy that some conferences get a 16-seed and another has to play into won. If you win, you've earned your shot to knock off a Goliath.

              That's why Lunardi's proposal is interesting.

              Add 4 more teams and have, essentially, a Last 8 In. That way, all the bubble expanded, all those teams play each other to earn their way into the field of 64.

              More exciting bubble games. More teams in. Little guys get their day in the sun. Everyone wins.

                Think about it this way - all teams have the chance to get into the tourney by way of the conference tourneys. The conference tourneys can be thought of as the first round. Win and you’re in. Some teams (the at large teams) just get a double elimination option that the other teams don’t get. With that mindset it’s easy to understand why the last of the teams that get a second chance should have to prove they deserve it.

                    • I haven't looked up any scheduled game date or time, except for here on Shockernet.

                      My question is, IF we beat Drake Thursday, we'll play USC on Saturday? That doesn't sound right. No teams get a bye in the tournament. What did I miss?

                        Yes, we are a play-in team, so essentially USC gets a bye. Gotta get to an even 64 somehow.
                        You miss 100% of the shots you don't take....

                        .....but, statistically speaking, you miss 99% of the shots you do take.

                            That’s a hell of a deal, kind of like flying standby and ending up in first class...

                            • Only at-larges can be replaced by at-larges.

                              If an AQ from a one-bid conference is out, they are replaced by another school from the conference.

                              • If WSU can get by Drake and then USC, then in all probability they have Kansas? Guess you should never think that far ahead though. But apparently someone in the selection committee has a sense of humor.
