I guess I’d just like to see those metrics start to play a bigger part in the selection process. Whether we do truly see that this year, we’ll see.
I’ll keep using MSU as another example. They scheduled what would be a good non-conference. The normal metrics are going to punish them because UCONN is worse than usual and Notre Dame’s star player is out for a while, pushing them to bubble team (although they started to struggle when he was healthy). However, we all know MSU is a top 5 team in terms of talent and their other metrics show that. Goes hand in hand.
I’m sure you and I can debate each point well haha, it’s all open to opinion. Which is why the committee’s job is hard.
