This is a bit of a downer post:
A 4 seed translates to top 16 in committees eyes. Unless we run the table they the BET, that will be another loss and I’m guessing top 20...5 seed.

That’s 3 losses beyond the 3-seed the early seeding gave us.

I know this is about rankings not seeding but if all the rankings and Net have us 17+ at the end of the year then I’m guessing 5 seed.

I'm confused. muguru informed us that top 10 teams don't lose at home. Shouldn't the top 10 look like this?

1 Gonzaga
2 Tennessee
3 Purdue
4 Kansas
5 Buffalo
6 Nevada
7 Washington
8 Gardner-Webb
9 Prairie View A&M
10 (vacant - not enough teams to qualify)

Shouldn't I be panicking about MU being worse than Prairie View A&M?

Oh wait. I forgot this is all subjective analysis done by journalists. As it turns out, I shouldn't get all worked up about one win, one loss, or one set of rankings.

Let me ask you this and answer this honestly...were you okay that MU lost at home yesterday to a crap team?? Or was that a pathetic, disgusting performance that should have NEVER happened?? I will hang up and listen to your answer.

50th ranked team isn’t crap.  Are we better, sure, but it happens.  IU swept Michigan State.  I can give you multiple other examples.

This is why we play the games.  Please hang up...

If you are asking if I think we played poorly against a team we should have beaten, then the answer is yes.

But "should have NEVER happened???" the answer is no. Teams lose games they are supposed to win all the time. Teams win games they are supposed to lose all the the time. As long as the former is an anomaly and the second one happens more than every once and awhile you are in pretty good shape.

Yep.  Yesterday was the annual head scratcher that MU is good for. 

Seems like Creighton is just a bad matchup for our guys too.  We really should be 0-2 against them. 
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

I'd be glad to respond. I'll take your comments one at a time:

1. Was I okay? Yes. It's a basketball game. It's not life or death. Did I want Marquette to win? Absolutely. Was I disappointed when they lost? Yes.
2. Creighton is a "crap team" No, they aren't. They are #49 NET, #49 T-Rank, #48 Kenpom, #42 BPI, #59 SOR, #56 RPI, #42 KPI, #43 Sagarin. That's pretty good by every objective measure I can find.
3. Was it pathetic and disgusting? It was bad. It was sloppy. Calling a 6-point loss to the ~50th best team in the country "pathetic" and "disgusting" is silly.
4. Should it have NEVER happened? Don't be ridiculous. Upsets happen. The better team doesn't always win, even at home. If the better team won every game, then the best team would be undefeated every year. How often has that happened (including NCAA Tournament championship)? It's happened 7 times, last in 1976. Apparently every team since then has lost a game that they "NEVER" should have lost.

The world is not ending. The rest of the season isn't cancelled. If you compare the results this season (23-6 / 12-4, tied for 1st in BE in loss column, expected 3-6 seed in NCAA tournament) to the expectations, this season is still a success. One loss doesn't wipe all that away.

Not to mention, with Zegaraowski in the lineup they probably would have won 2/3 or 3/3 of the @Nova @SH @X stretch, which would have them firmly in the tourney. They've run into some bad breaks (exhibit A our absurd come from behind win at their place). They're a good squad, I wouldn't count them out of the dance even with all those bad breaks. I think they're the Mid Tier Team Most Likely To Make A Run in the BEast Tourney (Xavier a close second in my mind).
