The problem is that in the power conferences losing a game may actually improve a team’s NET and resume.

None because Queta didn’t play. I don’t think those losses are solely on Miller, but he certainly didn’t lead us to victory. My argument isn’t over the losses being in Miller, it’s that we would be a better team if Miller would find something he can do well and specialize in it. Newbold was hailed ...
