I'm sorry, but there is no tangible argument to support UCF for a #1 vote. Anyone voting for them is riding Frost's jock, just pissed because the championship had 2 SEC teams or is just plain stupid. Big Ten fans need to STFU up about Bama being included in the playoff this year too. I certainly didn't near them arguing that Ohio St shouldn't have made it last year despite not winning their division and not playing in their conference championship (you know, the same things that they have such a problem with Bama about...)

Big Ten basketball is very bad right now. They don’t deserve more than 3 or 4 bids. Outside of the top 2, their only two decent wins as a conference were a currently had Minnesota team barely getting by an Alabama team that was playing 3 guys and Indiana, who is bad, beating a Notre Dame team that is only getting worse.

Palm has 5 from the Big 10 in the tourney. Realtimerpi and Lunardi have 4 . Prior history has been even though Big 10 nonconf was terrible, and the conf as a whole has poor rpi, somehow playing each other always elevates a few more.


The OWH did have CU as the bigger story this morning,. Credit where credit is due.

1620 talked nu basketball first but boy did they prop the Big East. They called Big East and Big 12 the 2 best conferences by far and said both deserve a ton of spots in NCAA tourney.

The Big Ten is definitely mediocre this year with some of the traditional powers having a down year. But, just to clarify...you don’t think UCLA, Butler, and Seton Hall are decent wins?

Our UCLA win is looking more meh everyday. They lost to a really bad Stanford. Butler is going to be in bottom 4 of big east and are bad away from home. Seton Hall’s loss to Rutgers hurts them. Rutgers is going to be in bottom 4 of Big Ten and are irrelevant when it comes to NCAAT conversation.

I don’t know...I think UCLA will still be fine in the pac 12. I would say any win over a top 50 RPI team is a decent win. Things could change but I think Butler is good enough for a top six finish in the Big East.

In my opinion, which a certain blond in my home says does not matter, CU needs something more to get out of the 8/9 game. We need to beat Villinova or sweep X or get to BE championship game.

Why? 8/9 means the committee thinks we are 40-48 in standings. I don't see that.
