Embiid won't be available for KU again today, but I need them to play up to their potential anyway and beat Stanford.

Good, I picked them for the upset.



Might be a little better if your coach would quit handing out schollies to junkies.

For the first several of those 20 years, the SEC was pretty good. The last few years it has been Florida, Kentucky, then a couple of others.

Here is the SEC's conference RPI rank starting this year and going back.

7, 8, 3, 6, 4, 2, 5, 1, 3, 6, 2, 1, 1, 2, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4.
13/14    - 94/95

3 of the worst 4 seasons have occurred in the last 4 seasons. I'm sure conference realignment where some conferences focused on football and others basketball played a big part.

One of the things I wanted to see was if conferences made the most of their opportunities if/when they got a lot of their teams in; or in other words, were the numerous bids justified by success in the tournament?

For the SEC, the answer was obviously yes; we got the 2nd fewest bids, but had the 2nd best winning percentage of the last decade, and won the most national titles of the last 2.

The ACC and Big East also justified their high number of bids; but one might argue that neither the Big 10 nor the Big 12 was really deserving of more bids than the SEC.

And even though the Big East somewhat earned their bids, it's still interesting to note that they've needed considerably more bids to win 5 NC's than the SEC needed to win 6.

Detractors got to keep the balance since the supporters are such a fervent bunch.

I'm past Henderson, though; the end of his career was fitting enough, but you said AK had already lined up his successor.

I honestly can't imagine a player being more of an asshole than MH, though, so hopefully SEC fans will get something of a reprieve with the new guy.

I didn't have much faith in Stanford, and don't have a ton in the Jayhawks either.

I'm rooting for chaos in our region.
Go Stanford and Go Stephen F Austin.

I have Kansas losing this game in my bracket, although I did have New Mexico advancing instead of Stanford.

Exactly the same as mine.

My bracket is trash right now, but I still have six of my Elite Eight teams intact. So if best case scenario plays out, I could work my way back up into contention.

I still feel good about my title game pick. Florida is the best team in the country, and Michigan looked scary good yesterday vs Texas. I think that'd be the best matchup. Louisville and MSU might have something to say about it.

Same here, I had Duke and Syracuse in my elite eight and both of those lost.

Stanford on a mission; KU looking a little flat and disinterested.
