Make your own inferences, but this scenario popped up when I was looking through the brackets this year and it took my back to 2018:

 

Syracuse (2020-2021)

16-9 (13-1 at home)

Quad 1: 1-7

Quad 2: 6-1

Quad 3: 6-1

Quad 4: 3-0

8 seed in ACC tournament

#11 seed in March Madness

 

Nebraska (2017-2018)

22-10 (16-1 at home)

Quad 1: 1-6

Quad 2: 2-3

Quad 3: 9-1

Quad 4: 10-0

4 seed in Big Ten tournament

Still one of the biggest F jobs, but just a taste of the curse that our program seems to be under. Any blue blood program replacing our name gets in, no questions asked. Instead, "the B1G is down". Imagine if we throttled that year's B1G tourney champs, who also made the national championship game in a "down year for the B1G"...Oh, wait, that's right, we did!

You are who you beat. Based on those quad records, Syracuse was between a Quad 1 and Quad 2 team, and Nebraska was between a Quad 2 and Quad 3 team. Having a losing record against Quad 2 is a tournament wannabe, unfortunately.

Didn't help our own conference Network was saying we didn't deserve to be in instead of promoting us like the $EC network was with their teams.
