Seth Davis - Still Wrong

This is always fun - let's go back to Seth Davis and his November thoughts on the Badgers and their postseason chances:

I know it's folly to underestimate a Bo Ryan-coached team, but I just don't see how Wisconsin is going to score enough points (especially on the perimeter) to reach the NCAA tournament. The good news is, this is a good time to have a down year in the Big Ten.

Hey Seth, do you think the Big Ten champs are going to sneak in to the NCAA tournament as a 2 or 3 seed? They somehow managed to score enough points to beat Texas on the road and go 25-4 on the year playing a top-50 schedule (no mean feat in the Big 10 this year). They're 12th in your precious RPI. And 3-point shooting has actually become a strength in the second half of the year.

Other than that, Seth, your analysis was right on the mark. And yes, I know that this is the third time that I've railed on Davis for this same paragraph buried in one of his columns. No, I'm not one to hold a grudge....not at all.
