1.)Frankly, I would have been surprised if there was a debate. Basketball seems to be the only topic that motivates our “quite small” contingent of posters.
2.)Loyola wants to win it all again. In order to do that, they need to beat everyone in their path. It really doesn’t matter that much where they meet them. I’m rooting for them.
3.)The fact is that, other than Loyola, the Patriot League did suck this year. We were arguably the 2nd best team in the league. We played an anemic OOC schedule and the were beaten by the only two teams we would consider writing home about (Yale and Princeton). Yale thrashed us. Frankly we held Loyola back with the seeding committee.
