I rather not have the ranking bulls eye on our back or the guys thinking they are as good as their rank.

Yep.  In recent years our greatest success has been those in which we have been way underrated pre-season, which is why I don't get honked off about it like some people on this board.

Also, remember 2013-2014, when were projected to win the Big East?  Good times.
Have some patience, FFS.

He says two wins away from a birth?

Let's hope there are no births at all.  Last thing we need is one of the guys on maternity leave.

Anyways if those rankings hold, and we played Tennessee and Kansas. We'd play an absurdly tough non con

Committee thought we were at best 5th team out.  Beating DePaul or Georgia wouldn't have been enough.  X or Nova would have.  2nd place Pac12 team didn't get a bid

Is that actually released somewhere or are you basing this off NIT seeding? Because my understanding is NIT seeding is not a reflection of the order in which you were out of the field

The selection show showed the first four teams out and we weren't one of them.  I believe these four automatically get the 1 seeds in the NIT but there's no order after that.

The first four out of the NCAA are always the 1 seeds in the NIT.  After that I'm not sure (because of the seeding regarding the mid major automatic qualifiers), but that would still put us, at best, 5th team out.

Men's Indoor Basketball.
Unfortunately, I agree with TAMU. If everyone is healthy again they are a borderline tourney team. B1G is stronger than last year.

Still belive a win over depaul or prividence would have put ys in the tourney.  10-8 in the BE would have probably been enuff to separate us from thise 4-5-6 teams ahead of us and maybe even some teams in the tourney.  Just a little defense from being a solid tourney team.  Hopefully the addition of Chartouney ngrowth of the other players tightens up the turnstile defense this year.

I don't think DePaul gets us in.  PC would have been incredibly close.  3 sweeps of tourney teams would have been hard to ignore.  If we had won that game.  I think our positions would have swapped going into the BET with us just barely in and them just barely out.  Their win over X in NYC guaranteed them a bid.  Would have been interesting to see if they get a bid without that win, some of their advanced numbers were historically bad for a tourney team despite thier key wins.

Read the Katz article, Loyola is not the 12th best team in the nation. I don't even think they are a top 50 team. They will run through the Missouri Valley again because it is a weak conference, so they might end up in the top 25, but I don't see them getting a single digit seed.

This exactly. Especially the DePaul game. Not because of what a win at DePaul would've been worth, but because of the impact a loss against DePaul had.

Katz is such a B10 homer.

He does work on BTN.

More to the point is that Katz is a Bucky grad.

So, rankings will have to be earned.    If the team is good enough, it will be ranked when it matters.

I had high expectations for the team last year .  I felt we would finish 3rd in the Big East and make it to the second weekend of the tournament. We ended up one win away from 3rd in the Big East and made it to the second weekend equivalent of the wrong tournament.   I have similar expectations this year, not finalized yet.  That said , my view is that the polls may take some time to catch up with where the team actually  is. If we can get out of the blocks strong, we should start being listed in those receiving additional votes and if we can win 10 or more non conference games we will go into conference season ranked.  Our relative position of strength in the conference should enable us to propel our ranking higher over the course of the season. My bullishness is a function of the complete roster we have now.

The key to all this stuff is that we did not make the dance, and that is on Wojo
Now, let the excuses and deflection begin.

Brother Herman hit the nail on the head. I would rather go into a season under-rated and watch our guys earn their Top 10 ranking that come in as a ranked team with the expectations and hoopla that follow.

We still have some unknowns going into next November. But the off-season recruiting has shored up some weaknesses and with Joe and Ed in the fold, I’m pretty optimistic.
