There are some things that make me scratch my head, and I know someone can help me clear the cob-webs out of my head.
How can the boys at d3hoops have teams like St Norbert and Dennison ranked in their top 15 list, yet they aren't considered good enough to even be considered for the Tourney because they didn't win their Conference?
I understand the two systems are independent of each other. But, it seems to me that if the goal is to get to NCAA dance, d3hoops should rank them according to the method the NCAA uses for selection. Why not?
A subjective poll and the criteria for the NCAA Tournament are apples and oranges. The AP poll means nothing for the D-I NCAA Tournament; why does the D3Hoops poll have to be different?
Also, if you have either a .506 (St. Norbert) or worse, a .477 (Denison) SOS, you don't deserve a Pool C bid, Top 25 team or not.
