Re: Big News Forthcoming???

I guess we're so great now that playing a top 10 team isn't a big deal anymore. Our RPI is 9. WV is 21. So ok, nice game but it's still WV. So us spending a day at an RPI of 9 is enough for you to turn your nose up at getting a perennial top 10 team on the schedule? It’s still WV? I’m lost on your ...

With regards to the 4 or 5 seed scenario - either are preferable because you're looking at the same matchup in the second round. 4/13 plays winner of 5/12. For a team in our position, that's our best chance to have an "easier" path to a sweet 16 birth. 4 seed would be nice to play in Bosto...
