Still need to win tomorrow, not only for sweet sweet revenge, but to maybe lock down the #1 overall seed.

Solid season so far though, 2 losses both on the road to ranked teams.

Since the NCAA started this nonsense 8 years ago or so, can someone please tell me what it really means?

Don't remember it having any bearing on the tourney?

It allowed Kansas to lose closer to home in the 2nd round last season. ;-) ;) :wink:

I really don't know myself, but it's #1 overall in something, so I want it.

Maybe that seed gets the easier bracket?

It's supposed to be on an "S" curve, so the top one seed gets the lowest 2 seed in their bracket, and so on.

Not sure it actually works out that way or not once they try to factor in locations.

So, in other words, it doesn't mean a hill-o-beans...

Just symbolism over substance, huh?

Oh, and more fodder for the media when ya get knocked out early, hence Peek's take...

After Dook's loss yesterday, there's no way OSU doesn't get a #1 even if they lose their next 2 games...

Like I said in my original, ya just don't want to give up too much mental edge this week

Glad it doesn't really matter. Was concerned all this "revenge" talk, plus playing for the outright might be too much for this crew. Now they can band together and only play to stick it in Bo Ryan's earhole.
