Per Jon Rothstein.

Tennessee gets Louisville. 
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

As suspected, ESPN trying to set up the KU-Tenn final.
Little do they know...

Feel like we have to win the first. A Loss and LV win just won't be satisfying. Otherwise will run the table on the rest of the noncon.

I think they are setting up a Kansas-Louisville Final. UL turns the needle!

Imagine their surprise when it's MU and Tenn in the final.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Going for the Kevin O'Neill story line obviously

Doubt that Louisville can beat TN.  Cards are somewhat down this season.

Last time MU, Kansas and Tenn were in a tournament together, Wojo broke the whiteboard.

Excited for the matchup. I think either Kansas or Kentucky will be the best team in the country next season. Don't see us winning this one but if we do....could mean great things for the rest of the season.

We could face the following in the non-con:
(Projected T-Rank)

1   Kansas
12  Tenn
22  Wisc
24  Indiana
25  Kansas St.

Or at worst, sub #46 Louisville for #12 Tenn.
Opportunities will be there for signature wins.

Whether we get LV after beating Kansas or after losing to Kansas, if we beat LV, it will be very satisfying for me.

We are not such a great program that we should be dissatisfied with victories. Indeed, no program is so great that it should look down at beating a blueblood - even a blueblood in a down year.

Go Marquette! It will be fun to beat Kansas and Kansas State in a 10-day span!

Vermont is one of the on campus teams. They don't play in the tournament in NYC.

Agree.... expectations already getting out of hand when beating the preseason number 1 on a neutral court is considered imperative......lol.

Go 1-1 and I will be happy .......no matter who it is against.

I wouldn’t be surprised if KU had it written in their contract something along the lines of “if KU projected in top 10, then first round matchup will be against next highest projected team.”  In other words, it’s an RPI play to ensure that they get the best RPI bump they can from the tournament, results notwithstanding.

It’s the reason UNC never plays Chaminade in Maui. They don’t want the win, they want the RPI.

Personally think 22 is generous but they should be safely in the tournament this season. If they aren't, could mean Gard isn't the answer in Madison

Those rankings are using T-Rank's 2019 projections:

I also think that is a little high for them.
Their number might be a bit skewed just because they return almost 94% of their minutes.

I think safely in is generous. They weren't good with King & Trice early on, and look like a bubble team to me, especially as a team that wasn't even in the NIT last year.

True, but these guys are also a year older.  We’ll see.

They are. I just think it's more likely they go from outside the NIT to bubble rather than outside the NIT to safely in or top-25 as some pundits are saying.
