As of last night, Joe Lunardi has us playing Coastal in play in game on Tues in Dayton. Winner plays Villanova in Buffalo. Wonder how accurate he is?

I doubt anyone is very accurate until the big boys finish their tourneys this weekend.

Playing Coastal would make for an interesting game. The Chants would be tough though.

Historically, Lunardi has been less accurate than a lot of others. He just has a big megaphone through ESPN. A lot of other brackets have us as the second 16 seed, with some giving us the first 16 seed. You can check out http://www.bracketmatrix.com/ for a more comprehensive look at brackets to see where we stack up.

Both Wofford and the SoCon stand to benefit more if we are able to play in Dayton. We have a much better shot to win a game and earn more money for the SoCon. I really want the team to play in the First Four.

Lunardi still has us in the Play-In game. Although his opinion is interesting - considering he is a very big proponent of RPI - and Wofford's (and Coastal's) RPI is better than both the other 16s he has not in the Play-In (Weber St./Stony Brook). Only time will tell. I'd love to see Wisconsin get a 1 and for us to play them again; or go against a Villanova team (although less likely with Yesterday's loss to SHU) that isn't that imposing on the inside. Not sure we match up well with a 'Zona or Florida.

While I think the pace of the game with Wisconsin would benefit us, I don't think Bo Ryan would take us lightly again and they would be ready for us. I agree Florida and Arizona would likely run us out of the gym. Villanova/WIchita St might be more doable but still quite the uphill battle. A play-in game gives us a better chance to win a game, but if somehow, little Wofford could be the first to knock of a 16, then the sky is the limit on exposure and attention.

Following ESPN, CBS, and USA TODAY, all different, USA today showing Davidson and not wofford as 16 seed against Florida in Orlando. Go figure.

We got a 15 seed and play Michigan. I don't like it.

Well, y'all aren't playing WSU. Good luck with Michigan. Our region is loaded. They are making Wichita State earn their stripes.

Woffordgrad94 doesn't like it? Shocking. What other #2 would you want to play?

They lost to a Charlotte team earlier (who incidentally lost to CofC). Michigan isn't among elite rebounding teams (esp with McGary hurt), and have a starting frosh PG like us. Could've been a lot worse.

I guess I was thinking we'd be in Dayton playing a winnable game then having a shot to be the first team to beat a top seed in the first round. And I'd rather play Villanova if I had to choose a 2 seed. Big ten teams are tough! But hey, at least we're in. Go Dogs!

I'd also like to add that I don't like the snippy sarcastic tone of the response to my post. I didn't deserve that.
