Maybe it was losing two at home that did them in.

I agree that a team should be penalized for home losses and rewarded for road wins. But that “metric” if used by the committee to detract from SCSU; still doesn’t explain the picks.

Illinois State had two home blowouts against ranked teams.  This may explain why they were considered among the last four.

South Dakota State also lost two home games to ranked teams and still managed to nab a seed. 

Furman and KSU made it because they’ve been highly ranked all year and maybe because Furman was snubbed last year.   I wish the committee would just own that.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
