    The exception that proves the rule. Davidson's run was aided almost completely by who they played. Georgetown played slow. Wisconsin played even slower. And the Badgers had one athletic player on their entire team. The perfect storm.

    Davidson's supporting cast was nothing like BYU's. Davidson was a true mid-major other than Curry. Not so much for BYU.

    I wonder if BYU could have survived in the land of 36-33 that is the Big Ten.

    Who are they better than?

    Florida? Please.

    Kentucky? Not a chance.

    Vandy would out-athletic them. And equal their shooting ability.

    They couldn't hang with UT's athletes.

    And UGA's bigs would eat them alive.

    Re: NCAA Basketball 2011

    No question, losing Davies hurts BYU, but to suggest BYU is now a one man team is a bit disingenuous. Jackson Emery could start for many schools. He provides the same type of backcourt support Stephon Curry received from Jason Richards in '08.

    IMHO, it is irrelevant to compare Major conference teams wuth SDSU and BYU. The NCAA tourney will take care of that, but, as Scrap pointed out, much depends on the bracket draw.

    Congrats on Dayton making the Finals of A-10 tournament. Looks like they might play the Spiders of Richmond, who are leading Temple by 3 with 28 seconds to go.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Alabama for one. And speaking as a Xavier grad and fan, I don't think there's much of a chance Xavier would win in the Marriott Center.

    FWIW, Joe Lunardi has Penn State and Colorado in and both Georgia and Alabama on the outside looking in, which I find odd.

    I wish we were still at 65 so all four could make their well-deserved trips to the NIT.

    Actually, seeing that Penn State has made it to the Big Ten final, they probably deserve a bid (though you have to hold your nose while giving them credit for winning a game 36-33!)

    Alabama is a bubble team at worst. They were the SEC West winner. (Not that that is great shakes, but the Crimson Tide won 12 games in the league.)

    If Georgia and BYU switched teams, the 'Dogs would win the league by a landslide, Trey Thompkins would be mentioned similarly to Jimmer Fredette (but have 10+ rebounds per game) and the talking heads would insist the Bulldogs should have a top seed.

    BYU, meanwhile, would be Arkansas, as Fredette = Rotnei Clarke (plus 5 inches).

    You've got to be a parody poster.
