He has Georgia, ole miss, and A&m as 8/9 seeds and you can't have sec teams play each in the first round. Or the second round and Kentucky is a 1 in the last bracket.
We are probably a 9 on his S curve but got shifted down ...

I need to back and look at the statistics, but I think this whole 8/9 thing is probably a myth.
8/9 seeds make it to the second round more often (50%) than 10/11 seeds (40% and 33%, respecively).
8/9 seeds have also been better at making the final four and even have won a national title.

The committee cares more about good wins than bad losses. LSU will face teams like Arkansas in the tourney, they won't see the likes of Auburn.
But honestly 3-1 against those 4 teams is still 3-1 against those 4 teams. Doesn't really matter who the loss is to....

[quote]Auburn is a must win tomorrow. We can't afford another bad loss[/quote]
Beating Arkansas on the road trumps losing to Auburn. I think we need to go 3-1 regardless of who the loss is to, but if I had to pick beating Auburn or Arky, it would be Arky...

[quote]IDK. Just want to beat bad teams. [/quote]
I keep hearing this and I mean of course I do too.
But would you really feel better (and think our NCAA chances were better) if we had the same record but beat Clemson, Mizzou, and MSU while losing to West Virgina, Georgia, and Florida?
| Tiger Rant|| re: After today, anyone think we make the tourney? - lsumatt on 2/1/15 at 11:15 am|
We're 5-3 and on pace to go the 11-7 most predict we need. I hate losing to crappy teams but our record being the same it's probably better for us to lose those and beat the likes of Georgia, miss, and Florida then the other way around.
