The only measurement is winning. Who cares if the "better team" got upset.I agree, This is why NCAA basketball is better than the BCS. It is all about who wins, not who the perceived best teams is.
NC State in 1983 and Villanova in 1985 come to mind for me as teams who clearly were not one of the best those years, but have provided some of the lasting moments in NCAA lore!If I recall correctly that was at least the third meeting between Nova and GTown that year. Gtown was clearly the better team but Nova got the title.
No. But it is once again it's a subjective thing even then. There have been teams that won it that didn't even win their conference so that tells you something If you lose the NC game and you are a better team than your opponent, you weren't prepared for the game, obviously, and didn't desreve it. That's what makes college ball so much better. What do want to do? Go to a 7 game series like the pros? Not!
but "best team" is subjectiveExactly
