  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

I'm not fretting.  I feel good about the Bucks.

I do, however, dislike what I perceive to be a real SEC bias each year.  

I honestly would rather be Bama.  Minnesota must win out and be perfect, and even if Bama wins out (likely an easier task for them), with one loss they will have a fair chance of getting in (though they need some help).  They have gotten in before without even playing in the conference championship game, and if a few things go their way, they'll likely be given the same opportunity.

Respectfully Allin, we criticize the committee for using such-and-such criteria, and then seemingly forgetting some other criteria, but let's not do the same.  We all know that resume isn't EVERYTHING.  And we all know that Bama and Clemson are full of 4 and 5 star guys.  Eye test IS part of it.  (but it shouldn't be ALL of it, like when Bama got in the CFP without even playing for the SEC championship).

Minnesota, while impressive in beating PSU, has had baaaad competition and they barely won most of their games.  I'm fine with Bama being ahead of Minnesota (for now).
