For the past few years I tell people "SU can beat anybody (Duke) and lose to anybody (need I recount! ) Both home and away. Predictions are useless.
There has been some 7-11 and 6-10 teams. Not sure about 6 games below .500 thoughYeah I highly doubt that any team with a conference record like that would get an at-large bid. In fact, I'm having trouble coming up with a team that got an at-large bid with a conference record worse than two games under .500.
I was doing the research before this query.Any idea who any of those teams were? I'm curious.
Thanks. Good call MikeDamone. Looking at their schedule that year, I'm shocked they got in with that record. They didn't even win a game in the ACC tournament, and went 3-7 in their last 10 regular season games.I was doing the research before this query.
I stand corrected - there was only one that I can find, not more. There has been some that have been on the bubble in recent years, and I must have thought some got in.
That one team -- it was 1998 Florida St, who was 6-10 in the ACC. Too many years ago, to be relevant.
Anyway, I don't think NC St is that team to bring in at 7-11. Not enough OOC, and the ACC is not dominant enough this year.
was talking about the ACC wins, hence the other sevenOhio state is in the KenPom top 35. That’s higher than NC State. Also, the Clemson win is looking better and better. They’re also a top 35 KenPom team. I don’t know how you can say teams like this aren’t “good.” No, they’re not elite top 10 teams but they’re certainly good. Ranked higher than every single team in the Pac12.
