The progs are getting on Gatr's bus ...

Starting to hear the, "UNC wins the ACC Tourney and ND doesn't win the Big East Tourney and UNC can be a 1 seed."

Looks like "I Can Be Serious !!"

Okay, from what I

Okay, from what I understand...

If Miami beats GT, then the State/FSU game does not affect the seedings.  If GT beats Miami, then State needs to beat FSU in order to avoid Maryland in the first round.

I think I got this right...not that any of it matters anyways.

Avoid Maryland

It is a sad day when folks are wanting to "avoid" Maryland ! state can and should be able to beat Dook's "rival" the Twerps.

You're right gatr.  We

You're right gatr.  We should be dying for the opportunity to send Maryland "back to the ghetto"!  =)

AVOID MARYLAND?

Haven't had much luck against UVa either. When they start beating someone other Wake, then we can talk about avoiding teams.

Wrong message

I'm not suggesting state avoid anybody.

since you asked

State goes to the 9 seed, and plays UVa, with a win and a Miami loss. That would push Md to 7 and Miami to 10.

State stays in the 7-10 game, against Miami, with either a loss or a Miami win. That would put UVa-Md in the 8-9 game.

UVa's in the 8-9 game either way. And State can't get out of the 10 spot without GT's help.
