Well, how can you say he did better than bigbucks vs good teams. Bigbucks played 3 more good teams than him, so you can't say that. If they both played 12 games against good teams than fine, but that's not the case. One played nine and bigbucks played 12. Both have 8 wins, can't assume other guy would win 1 more game if he played 3 more top 100 teams. They count wins plain and simple. You could be 34-0 against top 200 and you'll get better seed than someone being 28-6 and 10-4 against top 50. Colonels yes do your BPI, just for kicks.
That's silly. It's never going to be a perfect comparison -- you can't say that if they haven't played the exact number of games against top teams, then you can't make a comparison. If that were the case, then basically every comparison would be invalidated. Attempting to hold to that impossible standard makes no sense, and just isn't logical.
And you're incorrect -- if you beat up on a only crappy teams, your seeding is going to stink in comparison to your record.
