I don't see how they are a lock for a #2 seed. They lose another game and get knocked out of the Conference tourney early, they could fall to a #3 easily. Chances are though that even if that happens, they will still get a #2, mainly because the media has a hard-on for them.

Even though that was such a low scoring game, it was still a very good watch. I'm a Pitt fan first and a Penn State fan second. That team is solid, I don't see them getting passed the first round of the tourney (if the make it), but wouldn't be totally shocked if they won a game (depending on the matchup of course).

Yeah, they would be better served to be a 5 seed the way they are playing, especially recently. They have become way too one dimensional.

I can't believe you thought that was a good game to watch. Talk about watching paint dry. I can go out and find 4 other people and we could score more than 33 pts against penn state that was horrible to watch. The big ten isn't that great this year outside of MSU and Purdon't the rest of that league is average at best. The Mountain West has better teams top to bottom than the big ten.

Did you watch the game? Despite the offensive ineptitude by both teams, I found it entertaining (I might be the only one that feels that way though). I agree that the Big Ten is a weak conference as a whole though.

Yup, don't like MSU as a tournament team at all.

Me too.... Duke!!! Went to Duke............ Been a Duke fan since birth father also went there.

I clean up every year on the NCAA tourney. I follow College Bball all yr round and told people UNC would lose 1 game and then lose in the ACC tourney. They will NOT get a 1 seed but a #2 and will lose in the second round. I know if anyone from the march madness thread is reading this.... Hey lets place our paypal bets bevause I don't mind taken money from people.

SEVEN?? From the Big Ten??? Not a chance in the world. The Big Ten is terrible to watch and overrated every year. They are just a terrible conference from top to bottom. Michigan State looks good, and I think they might actually do something in the tourney, but it is not because of who they have had to play in the last two months. I cannot believe that anyone could think they could get 7 into the tourney. Come on.

I do not think they lose in the second round. Third round is a lot more feasible. They are not going down to a seven seed. Just cannot see it happening. I do not like them as a team, but they are better than a second round loss.

UNC plays down to there opponent so yes they will lose 2nd round to a big east team to be mentioned later

Bingo, in all their loses they get lit up by a guard (rice, teague and vasquez) if they had ginyard those would've been limited some and they could've won.
