Billyboy - I think that's an emotional argument people are making. In the scenario you outlined (or I outlined above), that team is more likely to get a 2 seed than a 6 seed, more likely to get a 3 seed than a 5 seed, and most likely is a 4 seed.

It’s the opposite. On a blind resume he would never pick Creighton. He is only picking them as a way not to pick URI. You can forgive other writers from other parts of the country for maybe being slow to come around or pushing their local agenda, but KMac doesn’t have any excuse.
