Yale beating Penn moves some stuff around today too, who knows if that changes things.

if JHU only quality win is over a bubble team that makes it hard to put them in too. of these 4 anyone watching them play would think Maryland is the bottom of the 4 right now.

as they played the last 4-5 weeks it would probably be JHU/SU/Cornell/Maryland
if you took it over the whole season i think its SU/Cornell/JHU/Maryland.

maryland is still lucky they got the Penn game in week 1 when Penn was still figuring things out or else they would have nothing to hang their hat on.

Funny from Quint.
We beat two of these our bubble teams head to head and have better computer numbers than them.
I feel like they are just putting us on that list to have a discussion point.

For Jeremy is better to be the 8 and potentially play Penn State second round or be unseeded and on the other side of the bracket.

Preferably you would like to avoid PSU in the quarters if at all possible but getting is what really matters. Either way your going to run up against a pretty good team.

So, to be clear, we’re rooting for Army and Yale today?

Army because that would improve Cuse’s SOS. And Yale because that would hurt Maryland’s.

Towson got the AQ and Syracuse got the last seed. No need to apoligize!!!!
I suggest all

(1) read the NCAA Selection Criteria
(2) try to read and comprehend correctly what the page accurately says

The Criteria is based on RPI, SOS and Quality Wins and Losses. For example, Cornell is ahead of Syracuse because their rankings are: 12, 1 and 8 whereas Syracuse is 10, 9 and 12. That means Syracuse has a better RPI but Cornell has a tougher schedule and better quality wins. All three count. The committee does not have head-to-head as a primary criteria.

At present this is the probable order of at-large assuming Yale and Penn State get the AQ

(1) Duke
(2) Virginia
(3) Loyola
(4) Penn
(5) Cornell
(6) Notre Dame
(7) Maryland
(8) Hopkins
(9) Syracuse

Only 8 get in so to guess which ones the Committee will select, you need to examine the RPI, SOS and QW rankings. If two teams are very close for the last at-large selection, the committee examines secondary criteria.

Hopkins got the last at large. You were in need of medical help regarding Cornell. Other than that, not awful.

None will be forthcoming. Any suggestion the Orange were in danger of not getting a spot was hogwash. We were not seeded at all, but we we were not the last team in either.

According to the team sheets the NCAA released on May 3, Cornell's SOS was 11, not 3 as Larry Laxbyte kept insisting. Of the 9 top at-large teams, Cornell's SOS was in 8th place, ahead of only Maryland.

Garbage in, garbage out.
