When did I say X doesn't deserve a number one seed? I've said they did in several threads. I just opined they are the weakest one seed, but can beat any team on any given night, and unlike any other year, don't believe a win over anybody with exception of Nova would be greater than a very mild upset.jct1941 wrote: ↑Mon Mar 12, 2018 7:41 pmAH - My point is - yes we COULD have lost to all the teams you mentioned BUT WE DIDN'T. Consider that Duke lost to St. Johns, NC lost to Wofford and so I think that ONLY lost to three teams who are considered very good teams and we finished 28 and 5. NC lost 10 games. The committee looked at all the teams and XU came as a number one seed. That doesn't seem to be to your satisfaction. Personally, I think they earned it and deserved it. Go Xavier!
Feel free to cherry pick one game, and perhaps one of the reasons the two elite teams mentioned received a 2 seed was because of the bad loss. Both also have considerably more Quad one wins than X, but I still contend X deserved the seed, though many others would disagree. I think their counter-argument would be equally valid.
Despite the conspiracy theories populating this board because we're not on every one's FF list, it must be very well coordinated, because many competing sports analysts on different networks, including some of our beloved ones from FoxSports have picked the Zags. I'd be a little more outraged if it was RI or Penn, but this is the same team who blitzed us last year, and arguably has a better top 7 this year. We do share one thing in common with the Zags. We both were run off the court against Nova.
