You’re consistent, Army. You fully believe everyone is out to screw us every time.
Yes, the Dance is about money, which is why they’re working so hard to get it played this year in spite of the virus. They couldn’t stand losing all that money two straight years.
Road wins are important. We have four of them and a good chance to get two more. Belmont has 10, albeit against really bad teams, and Loyola and Drake have 8 road wins each.
Saw something the other day that since Stanford was not allowed to play home games for several weeks due to an order from Santa Clara County, all the “home” games they had to play in other sites are being counted as neutral games. So they’re 12-6 in non-home games, which certainly doesn’t hurt their bubble chances. That’s one thing about this year; there are so many weird things like that because of the virus and now because of the icy weather.
Conferences can do what they want. Blame the ACC for starting this. Since 1961, their bylaws state “the only conference champion is the winner of the tournament.” In other words, there is no regular season champ, only the top seed in the ACCT.
