Bracketology 2021-2022


Recommended Posts

Lunardi's bracket today has IU at 8.

It also has 13-6 Marquette and 13-5 Texas at 7.  

Indiana has a higher NET than Marquette.

Texas is 1-4 on the road (same as IU)

According to KenPom, Texas' non-conference strength of schedule is 358th (Dead Last in D1).  IU is not great at 325th, but we're not dead last.

So, I ask you.  Why are we an 8 and those two teams a 7?.

What other factors does the committee look at? 

I think your post is spot on. 

Also, I would assume 1 top 20 win, 1 top 5 win and, in my opinion, no bad losses.... surely that would trump a fair amount of teams with similar W/L records. 

Long way to go.  We could be a 4 seed or out of the tourney come March.

LOL at Palms' new bracket that came out today.  Here are seeds 7-9.  He has IU seeded 9th with a NET of 29 (equates to an 8).  You could forgive him for that if he didn't have the likes of TCU, Iona, Miami, and Davidson seeded higher than IU.

I think we need to hit 20 by end of regular season. That assures a 11-9 big ten record. No way we’re not in with that. That means we have a couple more top 20 wins or some road ones. We play how we’re capable and I think we end up with a 7 or 8. But honestly the difference between a 7 and 10 is nothin in the tournament. You avoid auburn your second game and get Kentucky or ucla or something. I want to avoid the play in.
