First of all ESPN can shove it. All 4 picked JMU. Not the team that best them twice and won the regular season. Not the team with huge momentum. Whatever. Lunardi can eat a bag of dukes.

March 9th 11:30am on espn +, it begins. Survive and advance. Take the stairs.

You know they spent about 2 minutes each on probably 20 conferences. I'm sure a lot of in depth analysis was put forward with the mid majors.

Given the regular season champ hasn’t won the tournament in a few years, JMU seems like a safe pick.

If you go to the Sunbelt website and look at the tournament schedule there is no television listed for our game. Is it definitely on espn+ for sure?

I am thankful they did. Gives our team more fuel. Also, someone posted the stat that the regular season champion does not win the tournament often. It is hard to be a team 3 times so I get it. Just keep taking the stairs and go 1-0. This is a really good team but I want "experts" to doubt us.

For those without ESPN +

Why James Madison will win: Let's instead talk about what happens if the Dukes don't. Expect considerable chatter about an at-large bid for the team that already has 28 wins. However, that total includes a non-Division I victory as well as a nation-best (worst?) 20 wins in Quad 4. To avoid the questions, JMU needs to figure out a way past Appalachian State, which won their pair of regular-season decisions. -- Lunardi

With that sound reasoning, why wouldn't you pick the Dukes . . . seems like a lock they go all the way :roll:

For comparison, App has 13 Quad 4 wins, with one loss.

I’ve mentioned this multiple times regarding schools “gaming” the system by playing excessive amount of quad 4 teams… the selection committee is aware of this… paraphrasing the Chair, “ if a team plays lots of Q4 games, they better beat the top team (s) in their conference.” 1-0 baby.

Yup. I'm thinking they should get #1 seed overall. NCAA make an adjustment to the locations and allow all of their tournament games including the final four to be played in Harrisonburg.

Are you personally a fan of the system? I kind of like it. Sure it stinks if your conference is having a down year and those wins are from a lower quad, but definitely is fair that you should not be rewarded just because the winning percentage is high.

Side note. Haven't heard if any Virginia politicians are planning to get involved this time haha

I don’t have a strong opinion one way or another on the system. My only gripe, if I were to have one is that a regular season conference champion that doesn’t win its tournament should get more consideration than a 8th or 9th best team form a larger, more competitive conference.

Honestly I agree it's great material for the posterboard. This team has shown no let up but can't hurt to have a bit more gas on the fire.

Many of these mid-level teams in larger conferences receive NCAA bids for one reason: their fanbases. Everyone loves a potential Cinderella story, but teams with large fanbases get more butts in seats and eyes on TV advertisements.

Pulling for Texas State to make it through rounds 1 and 2 to stay out of quad 4. In other conference tournament news, Queens won their first round game. Austin Peay playing in their quarterfinals at 8 tonight.
