Two things I don't like about CBB:

  1. The regular season conference winners are the ones who should be auto qualifiers, especially for smaller schools/conferences 
  2. Every Big 6 should have 4 auto qualifiers and then take the rest for at large bids 

I would even be okay with getting rid of the conference tournament. Maybe even keep divisions like football and they play for the B10 title at the end. 

 

We won 22 games this year and lets say we beat Michigan and then lose to Mich St and get left out. Our then 23 wins and 14 conference wins meant nothing. We could have been 0-31 and made a run to win the B10 title game and got in. Never made sense to me

I agree with point #1; it's incredibly disingenuous to the spirit of the game for a smaller conference team to dominate their regular season, but not make the tournament if they don't win their conference tournament. Point #2 is pretty much already done; if you're in the top 4 of a Power Conference, you're almost guaranteed to make the tournament.....although this year could be the exception to the rule.

Lunardi having Alabama as a 10 seed, #7 "safe team", and 9 spots ahead of Nebraska is laughable

 

They have lost their last 4 games by an average of 13 points (2 of those at home).  Yes, they were to the RPI ranked #16, 7, 27, and 45 teams, but at some point you have to win games.  Bama's RPi is 57 (Nebraska's is 59).

 

I agree but people seen to favor a slightly above .500 team with 3 top 25 wins over a team with a great record who only has 1 top 25 win but wins the games that they should win.

Of the 22 teams I listed, Nebraska is 2nd (behind NC State) in Strength of Record, which is basically a measure of team accomplishment based on how difficult a team's W-L record is to achieve given the schedule that they faced.  I think this should be a pretty big deal - we'll see if the committee thinks so.
