Wouldn’t you know the week after I ridicule people that bet on college sports, I see a betting line that I would like to put a C-note on.

Count me in also on the “hoping for FSU but not expecting” train. I need to keep that in mind when I set my brackets, though maybe I will adopt their “best case scenario” in my #3 office entry in lieu of an NC State one.
But as in all things, “hope is not a strategy.”
And Notre Dame is just poop. They used up their Irish luck last season.02/20/2017 at 1:25 PM #118482
Dance Card has been updated after Sunday’s games. I wouldn’t call GT even after last night’s win. The Dance Card put them two spots ahead of bubble break.02/20/2017 at 1:29 PM #118483

It’s beginning to look like Boeheim did as well.02/20/2017 at 1:34 PM #118484
I just noticed SYR’s schedule for next week, Duke at home on Wed and then at L’ville on Sunday. Looks grim for the Orange.02/21/2017 at 9:09 AM #118538
yeah, that Dook game might be make or break for L’Orange. I still am amazed that Clemson stays even in the conversation. Think State could easily beat them (which would end any of that).02/21/2017 at 10:19 AM #118540
Just checked Pomeroy and Clemson is at #38. They’ve had a ton of close losses to some really good teams which helps with Pomeroy. They’ve got 4 Top50 wins which helps with the Dance Card. For a change, their OOC schedule didn’t include a dozen high school teams which helps with every ranking.
They’ve stayed in the conversation based on several things….RPI (or other) ranking staying in the traditional bubble zone along with their quality wins. Plus, I’ve heard several commentators mention that the mid-major ranks are weaker this year than the past several….so this group isn’t pushing them out of the conversation.
They’re not a bad team. They have 12 losses and 9 of those were to Top50 teams (similar story to WF). They just haven’t won enough games to prove that they are good enough for the NCAAT.02/21/2017 at 11:03 AM #118541
True. At some point…somebody gotta get in. But they need 3-1 down the stretch just to go 7-11. A split puts them at 6-12 in the league, and whilst I think penalizing teams for losing records in tough leagues is more than a bit unfair…6-12 is maybe a bridge too far even for me.
It would be very Clemson and very NC State for us to beat them.
