    It would be nice hosting an AAC team and maybe getting their commisioner to visit.

    Pretty silly if they put OU in the tourney just to get Trae Young in there. When he gets hot he is really good but when he goes cold.....he keeps shooting. Hasn't gotten hot a lot down the stretch.

    Completely agree but unfortunately, I don't have as much confidence in the committee to not make that decision.

    The fact that they put in both Syracuse and Oklahoma who had losing conference records is a joke

    St Mary's finished ranked #23. Syracuse and OU more deserving?

    Wonder if the committees take into consideration sicknesses in just a vital game and it's implications....I guess the real presence of the "what if".....comparison could be the qb in football say....again, playing without your best certainly effects a team's worthy judgement!!!

    What a joke. I figured as much with Oklahoma because of their hot start and having such a name that the NCAA can sell in Trey Young but I can't believe that Syracuse was included. It baffles me that they even came up for selection. The team that is getting screwed the most that nobody is referencing is Oklahoma State who beat OU and Kansas twice. I just don't get it.

    Dick Vitale was all over Oklahoma State getting "screwed." Oklahoma State's RPI is at 88 right now. Non-conference SOS is at 295 per Warren Nolan. 5-12 in Group 1 games.

    OU should still not be in the tournament.

    The committee did not make it all about RPI. They clearly stated that they wanted to see who you beat. Had it been about RPI, MTSU would have been in the field as well as Louisville, St. Mary's etc..

    295? The below link has Oklahoma State in the 60's. OSU also beat Kansas twice, Florida State, Oklahoma, Texas Tech etc.. OU and Syracuse got lucky.

    Ok, then let's go with BPI. OSU BPI was at 57. Still not good enough for an at-large. OU and Cuse had better resumes than OSU, but none of these should have been in the tournament anyway.

    Your link looks like it's a betting site.

    USA Today references their 295 non-conference SOS. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...day/414183002/

    Let's look at their OOC schedule
    Pepperdine 5-26
    Charlotte 5-23
    Oral Roberts 8-20
    Texas A&M 20-12
    Pitt 8-24
    Houston Baptist 3-25
    Austin Peay 16-14
    Mississippi Valley State 4-28
    Wichita State 25-7
    Florida State 20-11
    Tulsa 19-12
    UTRGV 13-17
    Arkansas 23-11

    Overall 169-232

    You might need to check some of those records.
    I don't think Arkansas had a 23-11 ooc record; looks more like over-all.

    No I don't need to check them. That's the records of teams that OSU played out of conference, which would be used to calculate OSU's putrid non-conference SOS.
