We all know how weak Albany and Towson are. JMU played Towson and Morehead. Beat Towson by a wider margin. Morehead beat Valpo yesterday by 13. NDSU lost to a team that isn’t in the top 10 by 8 and was down 24-7 in that game scoring the last five points to make the game look closer than it was. JMU lost by one to arguably the #2 seed in this tournament. JMU was the better team last spring making it to the semifinals while NDSU was eliminated in the quarterfinals by the same team that eliminated JMU.

There is talk about two MVC teams having bad losses to YSU. Well one win is a fluke but two suggests that maybe the MVFC isn’t as strong as it is made up to be. JMU has beaten every MVFC it has played since 2016 with the only two losses being to NDSU during that time. Why so much love for the MVC? Are they better than the CAA? Probably but not by the wide margin some would suggest and certainly not better than JMU or Villanova this year.

NDSU is clearly the 4 seed by any reasonable matrix this year. They don’t deserve a higher seed for playing a weak out of conference schedule and losing comfortably to SDSU. JMU went on the road to beat a good Weber State team comfortably. Campbell and Morehead are better wins than Valpo and Albany. Please stop giving in to the NDSU love because of their past accomplishments. This is 2021 and NDSU isn’t a top 3 seed based on the season just completed. I understand the committee may vote that way but they are dead wrong if they do. JMU and Nova would both win the MVC this year if given the chance to do so.

Last week you didn’t think we deserved a seed at all, so at least you’re coming around!

Seeding the field this year is looking harder than what I remember in past years. What I’m just as interested in is who the seeds are looking to get in round 2 as there are going to be some very dangerous unseeded teams out there.

I’m hoping to get one more matchup with you guys (and SHSU) before you move on.

It’s week to week. NDSU won the MVC with a win Saturday. They deserve a seed. I still believe comparing resumes, JMU should be seeded #2.
