I think it's important for LSU to start to get the attention of a premier team. My thought is it should help put a spotlight on their games and start to limit these officials from wanting to look so damn terrible to all of those eyes.

Wisconsin brings back bad memories. Baylor would be a fun game.

Not sure about that reason, but it is important for tournament committee to have a lot of LSU exposure on nationally televised games and important for recruiting.

But it was fun to fly under the radar for a bit.

As of yesterday we were still behind Arizona in Lunardis bracket and NET. Which makes no sense when we are 4-1 against Q1 and 3-0 in Q2. Zona is 2-1 against Q1 and 2-0 vs Q2. They only thing they have us beat in is Q4 victories. And their lone loss was to Tennessee while ours came against Top 5 aubbie.

The problem is they're not going to give the SEC two 1 seeds unless they're forced to by LSU and Auburn winning out until a final meeting in the SEC tournament championship game.

The networks broadcasting the games were set before the season started. It's not like football where LSU will all of a sudden starting getting the 2:30 CBS game just because they are good.

If LSU wants a high seed the two most important things that have to happen are:

1. LSU stacks up ROAD wins (to go along with their 4 neutral site wins). There are many metrics that go into creating a NCAAT resume. NONE are bigger than winning on the road.

2. Pull for LSU's opponents to also make the NCAAT. You'll hear the committee on Sunday say "this team was blank and blank vs. other tournament teams." It matters.

There has been a mob mentality towards the LSU program amongst those on the outside since the Will Wade saga. I'm convinced these officials feel like they are being good little foot soldiers with how they are officiating LSU in recent games.

Once LSU starts to breakthrough and becomes viewed as an asset to ESPN/CBS then we'll get away from the in game treatment associated with a vindictive agenda.

ESPN still absolutely moves games to better, more nationally viewed channels if matchups are more compelling than they appeared preseason.

ETA:

e.g. ESPN3 or ESPN+ to ESPN2 or ESPN primary. Even a move from ESPNU to ESPN2 gets a ton more viewers.

Itll probably end up being Gonzaga, Baylor, SEC team, and a PAC12 team. Even if we go 1-1 this week we should absolutely be in the conversation

And we've already seen it happen at least once just last week when the UK game was slated for ESPNU originally and then changed to ESPN.

Agree. Like being ranked but between 11 and 15 avoids 'being in the top 10' kind of pressure.

I hope that's not our draw.
