Dan Muller isn't about to take this "small schools are ruining the tournament" crap that has been floating recently.

Mad Dogg Radio on SXM yesterday had a whole 1 hour segment dedicated to the host calling Loyola "Cute", but ultimately a waste of everyone's time, going so far as to insist that re-seeding the Final Four every year to give the "Cinderella" the hardest possible path to a championship (even after 6 straight callers called in to call the idea completely full of crap) was the only logical way to "fix" this.

"I don't see why Kansas and Villanova- two teams who have deserved to be here all year, who people want to see play for a national championship- should have to play that game in a semi final to then run over a nobody in the final. Everyone would rather have the 2 1 seeds in the final."

No. No they wouldn't.

Bilas is the biggest P6 homer there is. When Virginia lost and he had to talk about it he had no expression. He looked sick. Like someone beat his puppy to death. He is not credible and all of America outside of Durham, NC knows it.

Note: for those of you who don't know that linked article is not by Bilas. It's by Pat Forde and is about how the selection process needs to be fixed to include more mid-majors. Good read.

He called the MAAC Championship game on ESPN this year. I have never heard a broadcaster more disinterested in my life. Ironically the MAAC champion, Iona lost to his DUKIES in the first round.

Tell him to tell the 1 seeds to quit losing if he's unhappy not seeing them battling for the championship. If they are so good, why did the ones that are out lose? Nothing needs fixed, it is working as it should

Will Dan ever take the "if you can't beat them, join them" path? Or is he assuming the mantle of the mid-major spokesman for life? There's some amount of hypocrisy to banging the drum if he defects to the dark side down the road. Although I couldn't blame him if he did.

I love Dan, and I love his chutzpah.

NC State wouldn't have made Tourney. They had 10 losses headed into the ACC tournament. 52 team field, without all the analytical migraine of today. Won 9 in a row at that point to be TheDancingKings.

Outside of that, great point, and go get 'em Coach! Would love to see him and Bilas do an interview.

Muller and Mark Adams are having quite the discussion on twitter with Bilas right now. Definitely worth the read.

According to selection chair for ‘83 Dance, NCState was in.

Bilas is banking on the assumption that a fair number of the viewers of his segments are semi-casual fans who will take the babblings of a former ACC player as being "expert" and beyond debate. Nice to see a Bone Scholar take him behind the woodshed.

I think the biggest concern is the 8-10 teams getting into the tournament. North Carolina State in 1983 had a 8-6 record. So I’m not sure why Jay Bias (I mean Bilas) is even talking about NC State.

Hey buddy. What if they had lost the ACC tourney opener...which they almost did?? Hmmmnn... :think: :think:

No 10 loss team had ever made the tournament before. That would have put them at 11 losses. They were playing under the assumption that they wouldn't make it.

All irrelevant today, of course.

Maybe you and i can just fight it out. Board seems to like that!

Yea Jay may be a little bias towards the power 6 schools but he can give some love to the smaller schools. Does anyone remember the year with Oguchi where he called isu a "sweet 16 sleeper "? Or when he called uni from 2 years ago "final 4 type team".
