    Nice analysis, Boston. Well done. You really convinced me with the statis-- oh, wait. You didn't use any. How about logical comp-- oh, none of those either? Well, at least you responded with class-- nope. Not even that.

    Prove me wrong if you don't agree. If you can. Don't attack the poster-- attack the message.

    FWIW, Clarke scores at a solid clip-- 15 PPG, but is limited because that's all he can do. Fredette can't guard a stopwatch. He doesn't rebound. He leaks out to cherry pick points and he takes an absolute ton of shots per game.

    He also plays against lesser players with less athletic ability, meaning that quick release looks that much quicker and that first step is good enough.

    Were he to play against top-notch competition, he'd still score. But not at the rate he does now.

    How can anyone possibly even respond to that? It's ridiculous.

    Tell you what, Massey ratings has a ratings comparison of 47 different rankings including the human polls and every computer ranking imaginable. BYU's lowest ranking among the 47 is #20. Georgia's highest ranking among the 47 is #35. So if you really think Georgia is better than BYU, you're likely not to be swayed by objective sources that all overwhelmingly point to BYU being vastly superior.

    Then again, you also think a SDSU team that is 31-0 against teams not named BYU is "suspect". So

    Didn't count, but Fredette hit one of the more ridiculous shots I've ever seen just after the halftime horn in Vegas. Looks like SDSU is finally gonna draw blood on BYU barring a big rally.

    Polls are obviously fallible. They also include Davies, who's no longer on the BYU team.

    I suppose we'll see if BYU is indeed for real. Ditto San Diego State. If the win up to their seed, I'll be shocked.

    NCAA Tourney Discussion

    Debate is almost over...

    Congrats to Duke, Ohio State, Kentucky and Richmond with big, resume-enhancing wins today.

    Guessing the 4 #1's are Kansas, OSU, Duke and Pitt.

    Think the #2's are Notre Dame, SDSU, Kentucky and North Carolina.

    I think UF gets a 3 seed but will be rewarded, so to say, by a favorable opening venue in nearby Tampa.

    I think UConn is going to get one of the remaining 3 seeds, with Purdue and BYU rounding them out. I don't think UConn necessarily deserves it, if you look at the whole body of work, but the committee generally rewards hot late season play.

    Syracuse, Texas, Wisconsin and Louisville should round out the 4's, but I am completely guessing there.

    Last I checked, Mr. "Bracketologist" Joe Lunardi had Alabama and Georgia in the "Last 4 out." I hope he's wrong about that...I want as big of an SEC presence there as possible.

    I would be very, very surprised if BOTH Pitt and ND got ones....I don't think there is any doubt Duke gets one after today....

    Charles Barkley seems like he's high or something...he is making no sense and having difficulty speaking in complete sentences.

    Weird to think there are going to be 68 teams in the tourney this year.
