Again... this is such BS.

We continue to play well, are gaining national attention, no bad losses, some quality statement wins on the road and we drop a seed.

ESPN sucks.

This. In fact until March is really means nothing and is merely just a model that plugs teams in and spits them out based on their metrics/curve. That is why even on selection Sunday they release one literally seconds before the release because it is based on sources and leaks where everything else is pure speculation. If you look in any season the release in the morning and final release right before announcement tends to be quite a bit off (seedings not teams). No point getting upset with anything. Keep winning and you won't have to worry about it.

I don't mind it saw mid Feb, as things are taking clear shape. But now, forget about it.

RE: Bracketology
Unless we beat Clemson, that MTSU game could have been a big win on the road. If Talley had played, we could be 10-0 right now.

We could be 10-0 without Talley had we have played decent.

RE: Bracketology
If we keep up this winning streak, we may drop out of the bracketology all together and never get another top 25 vote again!!

RE: Bracketology
Bracketology is definitely worthless at this stage of the season, and only slightly helpful later in the year. As for the Top 25 polls, I don't think we're being punished for the MTSU loss really. Even if we were 10-0 we still might not get more than a couple votes in the polls. Hell, just look at Middle Tennessee themselves: They only got 7 votes in the AP and 3 in the USA Today.
