Someone explain to me how Gonzaga could have been ahead of us prior to conference tourneys, both teams win their conference tourney against Q1 opponents, and we pass them for a 2 seed?

Why do you assume they were ahead of us?

My guess:

We are in the Louisville region, playing the first two in Des Moines as a #2 seed. First round against Montana State. Second will be the winner between Missouri and Utah State.

Then if all holds, we would play #3 Gonzaga before facing the winner of Alabama and Duke.

They won’t match us up with Missouri. We played a secret scrimmage against them this year

I have to say, its fun as heck being anxious for selection sunday strictly to know whether we are a 2 or 3 seed.

Post on the badger board showing a possible premature CBS post saying the badgers are in.  That would suck.

Didn’t that happen last year also? I think the answer is that they write up a bunch of stories so they can release them right away. Then if it doesn’t happen, they just discard it.

Im pretty sure thats the exact thing that leaked for us during Markus sophmore year and we didnt actually make it.

Very apparent Houston doesn’t give a damn about the AAC championship.  Down double digits with 3 min left and zero urgency on offense or defense.  Must be nice to be that locked into a 1.

Their best player is also injured, guessing they're trying to avoid the same for other key players (because of the #1 lock up you reference)

Oh yeah, that might have been it. I got my hopes up for a bit that year.

NIT? 9-11 in BIG and 1st rd loss in their conference tourney in what is basically a play-in, no NCAA for them.

Yeah. Could be they got in. Could be they made blurbs for every team with a shot.

Standard practice.  Have the story ready just in case, so you're not scrambling at the last minute.

Several of those mock up teams will be in the NIT.

I always expect the selection committee to come up with some weird stuff to enhance the 'story' such as playing against former coaches or non-conference rivals.  In this year's selection, I'd look for MU to end up in a bracket with Baylor as the 3 and Purdue as the 1.  That would be maximum "story".  Would also be unsurprised if PC is the 10 in the same bracket.
Turns out I had 2 of 3 right and forgot about the MSU "story" which our NCAA friends have decided to capitalize on.

I hope Furman jumps up to the 13 seed line.

That's the one team in Marquette's matchup range I'd rather just avoid.  They make a ton of 3s, are old, and don't turn the ball over.

Slawson is a matchup nightmare.

FAU's best win is Florida.  Have they played any teams that will be in the tourney?   But they went undefeated in CUSA - be very afraid...

This post did not age well.
