I suspect that, at some point in time in the past, Tommy Amaker and Bob Scalise have had a discussion about what is a realistic goal for NCAA tournament performance. If I were Scalise, I would insist upon it. Perhaps it was a running discussion, beginning during Amaker's initial job interview and then intensifying after the accusatory New York Times article, when Scalise promised to "have a teaching moment" with Amaker in light of the Times' reporting on academic shortcuts.

Scalise likely had a question for Amaker: "Look, I'm giving you way more low AI slots than a 20-man roster would otherwise warrant at a school with almost a thousand varsity athletes. Given that disproportionate allocation of low AI slots, what is a realistic payback on my investment?"

My guess is that Amaker told him that, with a full allocation of low AI slots, he could realistically aim to build a Sweet Sixteen team. Anything better than that would be icing on the cake, but a good goal for Harvard is a Sweet Sixteen berth. Not every year, of course, but often enough that he can plan and allocate his own internal AI strategy around that.

Do we think Scalise is being considered for "Teacher of the Year"?
