Best opportunity in years!
« on: March 13, 2018, 07:27:33 am »

Personally I think we should have had the 6 seed in Dallas over the Detroit draw, but we didn't. So with that being said, It looks like a favorable draw for us. We should dispose of Butler and have a legit shot over the boilermakers. I could see a sweet 16 run being probable this year. If our good team shows up we will make some noise in the tourney! We are pretty well being dissed by everyone. Hopefully Macon and the rest of the team make people RESPECT them! Go Hawgs! WPS!!

Just a guess, but the committee may not have put us in Dallas as the 6th seed in order to protect TT as the 3 seed as far as the R32 crowd.

That would be weak.

I don't think they care much about protecting 3/6 matchups. Heck, look at a potential 50/50 fan split for Purdue/Butler in Detroit. I think 7 is fair, given where metrics ended up at the end of the season. We were propped up all season by our RPI, which ended up at 30, which about fits a 7 seed. Man, it would've been nice to play in Dallas, but let's just use that as motivation for next year and beyond.

Butler is only favored because they are a name college basketball program with a storied history. This year though, they have a new head coach and finished middle of the pack (9-9) in a conference that is weaker than the SEC.

Really? The very 1st thing the guy on the selection said was he was picking the Hogs to beat Purdue and go to the sweet 16.

What are you talking about? A name program? Other than a 2 or 3 year run close to a decade ago with Stevens as their HC they have been a decent AT BEST mid major until they joined the Big East and they have been avg at best since doing that.

One of the few! I have watched numerous bracket pickems and we are hardle an afterthought to most with Butler getting the win! How is a 10 seed favored to win over a 7 seed anyway! I think we will dispose of, as in beat, Butler and have a legit shot at beating the Boilermakers! WPS!!

Butler is a good team with a couple really good players.  This will be a very competitive game IMHO.  If Macon and Barford come out hot its game over though.

Do you pick all of the higher seeds to win?  We know that doesn't happen.  People are looking for lower seeds who are most likely to win.  Out of the 7-10s, I like Providence to move on as a 10.

Of all the 7 seeds Detroit gives us the best chance to get to the round of 16 and beyond.  This is good luck!

Since you were replying to Guv that should have been a hint to your first sentence....................

Our success depends on how the refs choose to call the game.  There is no doubt they could call a foul on us every defensive stand.  Which scares me.

We just have to somehow get by Butler first. That's absolutely all that matters with this team right now.

As a fan, I can't help but look ahead to Purdue and their two 7-footers. One of 'em is listed as a 7-3 forward who can SHOOT THE THREE...I watched some videos and they really can put a big lineup on the floor.

Butler has some good size on their team as well, with a couple of 6-6 guards to go with 6-8, 6-10, and 6-11 guys.

It's going to be interesting to see if the Hogs can utilize their team speed in this regional.

Butler will be a tough out, but Purdue will be an even tougher out.  I think Arkansas is as good as either Florida or Taco Tech right now, but getting to the second weekend is going to be tough.

I watched some Purdue film too and Michigan carved them up. They are good and Carsen Edwards is a nice guard, but man are they slooooow. We would beat them off the dribble at will.

Many had this team dead in the water after a stumble at the beginning of SEC play. This same group of guys proved so many wrong and grabbed themselves a 7 seed. One could even argue they even deserved a 6 seed. Glad they never threw in the towel and I for one and proud of them. I'm behind Mike and his boys 100%. Hope they bring their A game to Detroit and if they do there's a chance they will be packing their bags for a second weekend of play. Woo Pig!

I really think that the one thing that matters most is if we shoot the three well (particularly Macon, who struggled in the SEC tournament, and CJ Jones hitting a couple off the bench is huge also).  We still have to play defense, but if we can hit 3s, I see us making the Sweet 16.
