Did you capitalize on your chances. This was the entire point of creating the four Group win categories so they could better determine who is getting the job done against the tourney caliber teams on your schedule both home and away.

Creighton went 2-10 vs the Group 1 teams. They beat Nova at home and that whitewashed everything they else did or didnt do. And its not like they snuck into the bracket. They were a #8 seed.

2-10 is atrocious given their apparent talent. Didnt beat a single Top-50 team on the road.

The committee says one thing publicly, then do other things inside the war room -- and its not just UD taking issue with it. Schools like UD just want a straight answer so they can shoot at a fair target. When the target moves after you've pulled the trigger, it turns into a fairgrounds carnival game.

Perhaps Creighton was still a tourney team, but their seed and Rasmussen's connection to Creighton draws all kinds of frustration from others on the outside looking in. And Creighton is just one example. Next year, the metrics may once again change.

We've been in the mock selection room and listened to the discussions. There is certainly bias in there with sportswriters and they watch as many games as the committee members do.

All you have to do in order to refute any algebra is to simply say "well they pass the look test" or "they appear to be gaining steam" and your team suddenly has traction. Its up to the other people in the room to more or less vote your convictions down. If you're a smooth talker, it doesnt always happen. Definitely salesmanship going on. And I dont even begrudge some of it. Its human nature. You cant take human bias out of a product designed and orchestrated by humans. But there needs to be more accountability when the public statements contradicts the resulting brackets. That's the only leverage the public (and those left out of the bracket) have to ensure the race into the bracket is indeed a level playing field.

your honor I rest my case. The selection chair isn't lying when he says OOC SOS doesn't matter
