NC State....anyone care to explain

Posted: Mar 16, 2014 10:05 PM

How we can have a better conference record, beat them by 17 (Seventeen) points and they go to the tourney???? I'm not saying we should have been a lock in but, Cccccmmmmmooonnn

No easier to explain than FSU splitting two games

with us, having a worse conference record, and one less win overall and getting a #1 seed in the NIT while we are a 3. I will be Florida Gulf Coast's biggest fan in that first game - the heck with conference loyalty.


makes sense when you look at the field...

SMU was left out b/c of metrics.... NCST had a better ROI and SOS. It's clear metrics were a big facor, so it makes sense.

"I've been working since I was 15 continually until now. I worked 40 hours a week at 15, when it wasn't even legal for 15 year olds to work that many hours."

Weary of your making sense out of NONsense York!***

NCSU and Tennessee getting in is a complete joke....

Posted: Mar 17, 2014 7:54 AM

especially Tennessee.

I hope Iowa completely waxes them and exposing them for the frauds they are.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

I have the winner of that game winning another game.

Over Massachusetts. Iowa has lost 6 of their last 7 games.

we bagged a lot of ugly women

& the homecoming queen on one drunken, get even with her bf night, while ncst was banging 6, 7s & 8s on the reg like it was their bidness.

we slept with too many ugly ones that just don't wash off.

So you're saying we should have been more patient, instead

of using the "go ugly, early" strategy?

can call the ACC office for a recorded message encouraging all those selected to the NCAA Tournament.

Politics. Coach K got them in.

Posted: Mar 16, 2014 10:37 PM

Who knows why he lobbied them in? Perhaps he lost a bet with Gottfried.

NC State will lose the play in game anyway. It's essentially a home game for Xavier.

Ok I grew up a huge clemson fan and now go to NC State because tuition costs. But let me defend my school for a scond. NC State is simply, in my opinion warming up at the right time, its a combination of beating syracuse, having the ACC player of the year, and coach K promoting us, that got us into the tournament. We made it to the semis of the conference tournament outlasting the bubble teams like florida state and clemson that we were ultimately competing with, which was also a huge factor this year. Im not saying we are gonna win the tournament but I think NC State has a good shot at getting to the sweet 16. Love Clemson, love the wolfpack, hope you guys pull for us.


Posted: Mar 17, 2014 5:08 AM

I can't speak for the rest of the board, but I personally hope N.C. State gets rolled by 50!!! They DON'T belong in the NCAA when they got beat by 17 by CLEMSON!!!!!!



We had 1-top 50 win, 4-top 100 wins, and 3 losses to teams

Posted: Mar 16, 2014 11:13 PM

outside of the top 100. We also only were just 6-9 in road/neutral games.

NC State, meanwhile, had 3-top 50 wins, 6-top 100 wins, and just 1 loss to a team outside of the top-100. They were also 8-7 in road/neutral games.

There's also the computer numbers:
NC State: RPI 55 SOS 33
Clemson: RPI 79 SOS 91

The only sad part of this is that, had we beaten Duke, the semifinal vs NC State, in all likelihood, would have been for that 6th ACC spot in the Tournament.

Explanation straight from the source

This is the reason the Chairman of the selection committee gave:

"Wellman said the last team in the field was NC State, which beat Syracuse in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament but lost to Duke on a late-possession game. He said the last four teams that the Wolfpack beat out for that spot were SMU, Florida State, Georgetown and Green Bay.

Wellman said NC State getting three road wins against top 50 teams was a deciding factor.

"That attracts the attention of the committee,'' said Wellman. "NC State took their game on the road and beat three top 50 teams.'"

I looked, and didn't see any Top 50 wins. Must have missed

them. Syracuse was the only ranked team they beat from what I saw.

Won at Tennessee, at Pitt, and Syracuse on neutral floor.***

Hold up, "late-possession game" against Duke? Are they

Posted: Mar 17, 2014 8:17 AM

sure they aren't confusing our game with Duke with State's game with Duke?

The last time NC State was within a single possession of Duke was with 15:12 left in the 2nd half...

Tobacco Road!

No points for improvement over season - should throw out

Posted: Mar 17, 2014 6:01 AM

first few games - like losses to Auburn and UMass. Wake Forest improved too and beat some other good teams at home near end of season, so that should not count against us. Just think if Nnoko had been at UVA game and McDaniel had not been injured - we would be at about 24 and 6 rated High Ncaa's - sad! And no rationale can convince me that Ncstate should be ranked ahead of us!
