re: CBS' Jerry Palm, "Without that Kentucky win, LSU is barely an NIT team" - ellessuuuu
[quote]Palm is one of the better college basketball analyst in Bracketology[/quote] He is, but he apparently thinks the SEC is still garbage. He had us squarely on the bubble last year too and we were not. ...

That makes sense. He doesn't seem to be giving any consideration to losses without Hornsby and Victor. With Ben Simmons being in the mix, the Committee will give some consideration to when we had our full slate of players and our record in the last 10 games. ETA: If LSU wins the SEC tournament,...

re: 2015-16 LSU Basketball: The Numbers, RPI, MM Odds... - ellessuuuu
Jerry Palm now has us in as a #12 against USC in the South. Friday he had us as one of the first four out, now we have jumped to in with a bye. Going 1/2 of this week would be huge. If we go 2/2, not only are we safely in the tournament, but we have a solid lead on the Conference. [link=(http:...

re: Louisvilles self -imposed ban helps LSU Bball!! - ellessuuuu
Maybe, it depends on who ultimately wins the AAC and ACC. SMU was the odds on favorite to win the AAC, so if a team that would not have otherwise been an at-large wins the conference tourney, that team will have essentially stepped into SMU's bid. Louisville on the other hand was not the fav...

Jerry Palm has us in his First Four Out. He updated his bracket today removing Louisville from the field (self imposed post-season ban this year). [link=(http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/bracketology)]Palm Bracket[/link] Lundari still has us as a 10 seed playing Utah. But he has n...

re: New OC List - ellessuuuu
IT. DOESN'T. MATTER. Why is this so hard to understand? It's his show and after the cluster that happened in November, he thinks he's holding all the chips, so it ain't changing. Getting rid of Cam was a condition of him staying (didn't want to leak it until kids were signed, very standup of hi...

re: Tired of bashing JJ threads... - ellessuuuu
Then don't log on to ESPN or any other credible national media analyst because the criticism is not contained to this board. He is a career .500 coach in the Sun Belt that got hired at LSU because he played at LSU, not because he was the best candidate for the job. He has managed to reopen the...

By the way here is a copy of the nitty gritty report containing the computer rankings, including SOS and Opp SOS and record versus the RPI, etc. No mention anywhere of BPI. [link=(http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/MBB_RPI/MBBNG.pdf)]LINK[/link]...

re: LSU RPI 90, Georgia 62, Oklahoma 1 - ellessuuuu
Hey dumbass, I'm referring to what information is available in the room when they actually pick the field. I very clearly acknowledged that individual members probably look at it like every other college fan does, that cerainly doesn't qualify as considering the BPI more than RPI, as my initial post...

re: LSU RPI 90, Georgia 62, Oklahoma 1 - ellessuuuu
The NCAA's own website identifies exactly what resources are given to the committee and the BPI is not included. Does that mean that members don't consider it before going into the meeting? Of course not, I'm sure they read it like most us. But when they go into the room to deliberate, BPI isn't ide...

re: LSU RPI 90, Georgia 62, Oklahoma 1 - ellessuuuu
Did you fail reading comprehension? Read the resources given to the committee members from the first link (injuries, etc.) and compare it to the factors used in the BPI in the second link. Yes, they are generally the same factors. The 'computer rankings' you referred to in the NCAA link is then ...

re: LSU RPI 90, Georgia 62, Oklahoma 1 - ellessuuuu
I follow college basketball as closely as anybody on this board. The NCAA committee is provided certain information and metrics when they deliberate, I've never heard of the BPI being used. The NCAA has its own RPI ranking that are used, obviously that is not the only guide and other factors are co...
