    Jay Bilas Top 68

    http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-coll...ege-basketball

    Updated today:

    9. Nova
    14. GTown
    26. Xavier
    33. Butler
    36. Providence
    39. Seton Hall
    43. St. Johns

    UD also 27 and UC at 40

    Just thought it was interesting considering I usually don't expect much respect for X coming from him and ESPN in general

    Jay Bilas Top 68

    I don't have the number in front of me but I'm guessing our BPI is pretty high, much like our other advanced stats say.

    Bilas has always been a bit proponent of BPI so that's why we're high in his rankings.

    26=7 seed.

    We just need to try and stay above the 8-9 seed range. A 6 seed would make me very happy.

    Good lord, I just want to make the Final 64. Now we're talking about 6-7 seeds? Amazing how things change when you win a game on the road. But if we beat Seton Hall, I think a 5-7 seed is totally realistic.

    Let's hope we are getting hot at the right time. The upcoming schedule allows for a lot of movement.... either way.

    PS - I always like positive news, but Bilas could call us a 1 or 2 seed, and he'd still be a pompous windbag.

    It's interesting how we went from maybe making the play-in game to being around a 7 seed, at least in Bilas' eyes.

    So note to all, including myself- it's a long season. Things can and often do change for the better.

    Amazing.

    Dook grad Bil-ass can actually read the RPI list. And some pay to see that "insider info"?

    Xavier -26....RPI. The B in BPI stands for Bullsheet.

    I will say it again, people who watch this team from the outside, as well as all the computer rankings, have a lot more respect for this team than the bulk of our message board experts. We have had our problems this year, but it was never as bad as all the "Fire Mack" idiots were taking it.

    Yes, the team should be good.
