While another first weekend exit would be frustrating, in the context of next years roster, I would definitely be happy with an NCAA Tournament appearance.

Would virtually lock us in for 7 tournaments in a row, and this team as sophomores and seniors with or without Gaff will be dangerous in 2020-21. Heck next year if we get in we will definitely have a chance to surprise. But 7 in a row... count on us to make a couple runs.

Depends on the roster turnover and if there are any transfers. But yes, potentially it could be a good year if we adjust from the Gafford loss.

When you say "hire" expectations, do you mean looking for a new coach?

I agree, I think it would take close to a cosmic miracle to reach the NCAAT. No knock on CMA or the players.

I don't know why you say that.  CMA has gotten us through troubled waters the past 3/4 years.  Why wouldn't he do so the next four years?

NCAA Tournament bracket: What did we learn about the selection committee this year?

The selection committee rewarded teams that beat quality opponents and challenged themselves with tough schedules.


Quote
NCAA Tournament selection committee sent some pretty consistent messages when it selected and seeded this year.

First and foremost: Quality wins matter.  However, it is not as simple as counting them.  The number of opportunities to get those wins is important too. For teams like Middle Tennessee and St. Mary's, we may hear the familiar refrain that quality teams won't play them. However, the Blue Raiders did play three quality opponents -- and went 0-3.

Gaels did themselves in by not even scheduling a quality non-conference opponent. They do have Gonzaga in their league, but if New Mexico State is your best non-conference opponent, the committee will not be impressed. All three of their quadrant 1 games were conference games.

However, this treatment was not limited to non-majors. USC was left out for the same reason. Like Saint Mary's, the Trojans' best win was New Mexico State. They also beat Middle Tennessee. They scheduled Texas A&M and Oklahoma in non-conference play and played five games against tournament teams in conference and lost them all. They also had four non-tournament losses, including Princeton at home. USC now holds the record for the best RPI ranking for a major conference team that missed the tournament at 34.

Syracuse was able to get in partially because it beat two top half of the bracket teams in Clemson at home and a road game at Miami. They also played a strong non-conference schedule, which is something that is not typical of the Orange. They could have legitimately left Syracuse out, but there wasn't another team any more worthy to put in  We needed one more bid-stealer.

Oklahoma and Arizona State were both rewarded for strong first halves of the season and seeded more in accordance with their relative collapses. The Sooners are a 10 and the Sun Devils are an 11 playing the Orange in Dayton. The committee has consistently said for well over decade that how you finish doesn't matter. The selection of Oklahoma and Arizona State should cement that message. ASU now ties the record for the most losses to non-tournament teams for a team in the field.

Notre Dame was the team that was kicked out when Davidson won. The Irish's resume was soft, even with consideration given to the absences of Bonzie Colson and at times, Matt Farrell. It would have been the first time a team was selected largely due to consideration given to an injured player. ND had a big win over Wichita State, but also lost to Ball State at home and against Indiana with Colson in the lineup.

Quality wins mattered at the top of the bracket too, where Kansas was a No. 1 seed despite a record tying seven losses. The Jayhawks had 12 quadrant 1 wins, a number only topped by North Carolina. The Tar Heels had 14 Q1 wins and 10 losses, but still merited a No. 2 seed. UNC was the top two seed...

So, while people are upset at Oklahoma's seed or Syracuse's selection, I think those are consistent with the messages the committee was trying to send.

Also noted that the regions were well balanced [for once], with Kansas drawing the toughest regional on paper.

Need your thoughts on this - I want to keep college hoops going during the off-season, so here's my thought-I post a new bracket each month, with an error in bracketing procedure - you let me know where I goofed. Veteran #bracketologists should get it quick, but others might not.

Tennessee would be a newbie to the top line if this comes through for the Volunteers. They return every significant contributor from last season's surprising run to the SEC title and a No. 3 seed in the 2018 NCAA Tournament. The Vols figure to be favored to repeat that championship, although there will be strong challengers.

It's always amazing to me to see the same people that complain about a player all year long are the same one's that will complain when they leave about how bad we need them.  As you said, Hall would have been a key guy next year, but CJ was already playing himself out of rotation the writing was on the wall for him, he was very inconsistent.  He was a guard, that was afraid to dribble the ball, horrible on defense, and was a streaky 3 point shooter. 

I don't think losing Hall or Jones was make or break for us.  We have guys on the roster now that can bring what each of them brought, possibly even more.   Our future next year always rested on if Gafford was coming back and how big of jump he took.  He was the guy that was irreplaceable.  If he's truly top 10 draft pick good next year, we'll be alright, it's not like he's playing with scrubs either, we have the #24 class according to ESPN with four 4-star recruits in it.
