That projected #12 seed by more than one beat writer is just awful and not really any better than what we would have had if we had stayed in the OVC and won it all. Reputation and brand (although it shouldn't) has always had as much to do with seeding as any other factor and our brand was forged in the OVC. If SEMO pulls off a first round upset, then the sinking OVC ship gets righted awfully fast. If Drake loses their first round game, then it is hard to argue that the MVC move was better for us. However, my eyeball test tells me that Drake could be a potential Sweet 16 team. They are big, strong, play smart and are as lengthy as many P6 teams. I certainly think that Drake is more than capable of beating Miami.
