One problem is the ACC. And I don't mean this in my typical, 49% TIC...

...schtick that Wofford doesn't like us, way. But rather, for any tourney or special game that has an "ACC" slot we are always behind at least Duke and UNC, and maybe Cuse or Lville, and then roughly tied (before the natty) with ND and NC St in terms of the desire to really stump for us.

So over the past 6 years or so, Nova and Zags have had roughly similar success, but they are head and shoulders above everyone in their conference, so they get a ton of the slots for their conference (or the "other" slots).

Plus, I think Tony is a bit choosy about who/how he schedules. I got the impression after the VCU game two years ago. We played at an odd time b/c VCU had to travel. I blamed them at the time, but I think part of the reason is that Tony may be inflexible about his terms. I.e., come play a home and home with us, but it has to fit these terms... I don't know, to be clear, just making a wild guess.
