I’d make fun of the A10, but weird crap like that happens at Providence all the time.

Do you really want to add a bad loss to our resume?  A nonsensical take, as are some anti-Badger takes.

Yes.

I keep wondering how the guy got into the arena.

Reminds me of Spicoli getting the pizza delivered to Mr. Hand's history class in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

That game is not going to have any significant impact on MU’s resume.

It’s one thing to nitpick the resume when a team is on the bubble, but unless MU falls apart they should be comfortably in the 3-6 seed range. In that area, a small blip on the resume might make a difference of a spot or 2 on the overall 68 team seed list, but is going to have an imperceptible impact on the team’s seeding and placement in the bracket and opportunity to advance in the tournament.

Teams aren’t placed in the bracket strictly according to their place on the seed list because of the need to follow other placement guidelines like avoiding early matchups between teams from the same conference. With the number of Big 12 teams that will be in the top half of the bracket there is going to be some shuffling to accomplish that.

As long as MU wins the games it should win, and finishes no worse than 15-5 in the conference, they will be comfortably in the field with a decent seed and their hopes in the tournament will be based purely on matchups and how they play.

That having been said, I hope the Badgers lose every time they take the court and I would love to see them miss the tournament. But, I suspect that they will take advantage of their weak remaining schedule and sneak into the field.

Not worried about it for a nanosecond.  Completely worth it.

If I had seen it posted earlier, I obviously wouldn't have posted this.

Delivery people are probably let in all the time. Usually for more mundane things, but probably fell into the category of flower , balloon delivery, etc.

But now I totally have a way to sneak into a sold out arena!

What are the criteria?

High luck rating (#25), high seed (2/3) that doesn't match their analytics (#27 projects to a 7), narrow win margins with some ugly losses. "Elite" 3PFG% (#17) and FT% (#37) defense is another danger sign because with rare exception, those are just further functions of luck.

Watching this Purdue-Michigan game. Michigan doesn’t seem great but Dickinson being an absolute monster down low + their play style,just seems like the type of team I’m really hoping we don’t run into when it matters.

Disappointed to see this.  The video made me laugh but him wearing a microphone making it blatantly obvious this was a planned stunt is disappointing

Purdue beat Michigan at Michigan by the exact same score 75-70 that Marquette lost to Purdue by at Purdue. Not that it means much or anything.
