OK, the RPI does matter. Georgia made the NCAA tournament and made it with room to spare. The Bulldogs are a No. 10 seed, which is what Georgia Tech was a year ago after reaching the ACC finals.
Georgia got an OK draw for one round. Washington is good but not unbeatable. (Although the Bulldogs have had issues defending guards, and the Huskies’ Isaiah Thomas is one of the best.) Then you look at Round 2 and you see …
North Carolina. In Charlotte. Whoa.
But if you’re the Bulldogs, you don’t care about that now. You’re in. You’re dancing.
More later. Bracket Fiasco later. Give me 90 minutes or so.
