I agree with that partly, but I think rankings matter with recruits too.

We just pulled in the #1 class with a NIT season.

That's a really good point.

That said, if we have an NIT season again this year, I'm not sure we'd repeat that. :)

Are you accusing Duke or Kentucky to not play good OOCs?

Because they typically do.

Duke almost never plays a out of Conference game unless it's at home, or in-state.

Also they're usually a #1 Seed in the NCAA Tournament & always seem to play near home.

If that happens (and I seriously doubt that) recruits won’t remember our preseason rankings. If we make S16, I think Penny will be able to maintain recruiting level that we are at now.

I think it all depends on how the season ends and player development.

LOL, all good

If you didn't catch Parrish around 12:30 today on 92.9, he was awesome.

He had salukiblue-like stats about how teams do when they have the 1 recruiting class in the country. He likes Rob Dauster, but he put him in a mental casket.

Oh he'll make the Cal criticism look like child's play before one and done.

They will play St John's away, that's it.

If they make the NCAAs with an exciting brand of basketball, recruiting wont slow a bit. You can always argue that a single elimination tourney isn't a true measure of a team.

2020 NCAA tournament venues

someone stated that duke always seems to play near home. if this is true then I guess they will play in Greensboro, NC next year. :-) St. Louis would be the closest for us.

You could argue that but I’m not sure the best kids would buy in. MOST seasons Duke, Kansas, KY (the teams we were recruiting against this past year) are playing into the second weekend. S16 has always been a barometer of success for out basketball program anyway.

But you are right: upsets are more common, more parity and best team doesn’t win a lot of years.

Every national champion in every NCAA sport is determined by a post season tournament. EXCEPT FOOTBALL! Every NCAA sport has a legitimate national champion. EXCEPT FOOTBALL. Please stop saying that a tournament is not the best way to determine the national champion. A tournament is the ONLY way to determine the national champion. Without a tournament UCLA and North Carolina would play in the national championship game almost every year. Occasionally Kentucky or Kansas might sneak in, but Duke would have had a hard time becoming an annual contender without the tournament. If you think the BCS finds the best team every year you must be buying the koolaid the talking heads are selling. They sell that koolaid because it makes them more influential than actual games.
