on whether they think embiid will be back. if they dont think he will they effectively handed us a two seed
 
I don't think they would have been given a two if they weren't told that Embid was def coming back. Who knows if Kansas was honest with them, but I think that was their rationale.
 
Color me very skeptical.

"We're resting him for the Big12 Tourney as a precaution & will get him back for the opening NCAAs" = what you say if you really expect him back for the S16.

"He's out 'till the S16 & we hope to get him back then" = what you say when he's done.

of course they were told hes coming back. self indicated he would. just like jb hinted w AO. Ku earned a two seed. but what the committee believes is a different story. if Embiid comes back UF and KU are potentially the best two teams in the country. so not sure the com really believes hes coming back
 
i agree. if he really loves his team he comes back. if he values the rest of his career and is selfish no way he plays an amateur game w a bone still broken in his back. too risky

Midwest is the toughest.
