There have been 21 brackets on Bracket Matrix that have been updated since our win at Wisconsin. Here's where we stand on all of them, in alphabetical order.

 

131Sports: Sixth team out

Best Damn Bracket Period: "next five out" (i.e. between sixth and 10th team out)

Bracketologist3: Not included in first eight teams out

BracketWAG: Somewhere between fifth and 19th team out

Bracketodds: 1 of 15 teams considered for at-large bid but not in field

BracketResearch: Not in first eight out

Busted Bracketology: 21st team out

Daily Bracket: Not included in first four out

Eye on the Tournament: Not included in first six out

Haslametrics: Sixth team out

Jason Wells Bracketology: Included in tournament as 10 seed

MM: Sixth team out

RealtimeRPI: Not included in tournament

RSN Bracketology: 13th team out

Tourney Worthy: Not included in tournament

T-Rank: 13th team out

Weber: Not included in tournament

YUSAG Bracketology: 15th team out

YUSAG Bracketology... Their information is not correct!  We are not 103 in RPI no clue where they are getting their data from?

Lunardi's logic is what bothers me.  On one hand he will say "Well, they don't have any "bad losses"" but for NU, "No good wins" So a double standard, as we really don't have any "bad losses".  Then he will mention that if ND can become healthy they have a shot to get considered?  A team that has lost 7 straight games.  So if they lose like 10 straight, then get a few guys back they can work their way in? 

 

By that logic, do we get more credit for beating a full strength Minnesota team? Or losing to St. John's when they were full strength? Or losing to UCF with Fall was still playing?  Of course not. 

 

We just gotta keep winning and see what happens.  Tons happen in conference tourney's as well that can help/hurt us.  If we keep winning, we will work our way in.

Wow, you are right. I just emailed the author letting him know. Hopefully they get it fixed!

If Nebraska goes 13-5 they are in... This site has good data

 

Not one team with a 13-5 or better conference record was left out in this

 

bubble info

 

Correlation does not mean causation.

 

If you're 13-5 in a major conference, your overall resume will be good enough to get in most of the time. That's why you'll have a hard time finding such a team missing the dance. But it's not because of their conference record, it's because of their whole resume. I've already shown in this thread that conference records and conference standings are not even considered by the committee. If anything, they like to highlight how you did OUT of conference, not in it. They like to see that you're capable of beating unfamiliar teams with unfamiliar styles in unfamiliar arenas because that's what you'll be up against in the tournament.

 

I think 13-5 (which would mean 22-9) with an added win in the B1G tournament will get us in. One-and-done in MSG and we'll be on the edge of our seats come Selection Sunday.

He responded! We were too quick to judge. He's including the projected end-of-season metrics for each team rather than the current numbers. His model isn't very high on Nebraska and has us going 3-3 to close the season, thus the poor RPI.

***Note: All the “+2 Wins” changes to +1 if the one win is over Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue or Michigan State***

 

***Note2: I did not list Rutgers in the 4-2 charts, because I believe if we lose to them and another team in the regular season we will need to make the championship game to make the dance.***

 

***Note3: We finish 3-3 we will most likely be in the NIT, but two quality wins in the tournament meaning two wins against any 4 of Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue or Michigan State we will have an outside shot

You guys simply blow me away.  Many people will not read the dictionary from front to back because it creates an information overload.  I read the above and it creates the same overload, similar to getting an ice cream headache when you eat to fast.

Take one 6 game stretch at a time, and see if you agree... Taking it all in at once will make your brain explode.  Sorry for giving you a headache!

I don't think the probability of us losing every game is very high, but I definitely think we can win the whole thing!

One thing that needs to be factored into the whole odds of winning out thing is that teams with nothing left to play for tend to not play as well down the stretch.  Teams that should be better than they are spin out of control.  Some players press too hard; others throw in the towel.  Personality conflicts are amplified and flaws in character are revealed.  Happened to us last year.  Happened to our football team this past season.

 

So, while Minnesota might have represented a probable loss earlier in the season, they might now be ripe for the picking.  Same with Illinois.  Same, frankly, with Rutgers at our house.

 

Our goals are still reachable and we HAVE to win; their goals are pretty much already beyond reach and so they're only playing for pride, which isn't much motivation for some people.

In three brackets out of 106 as of last night's Bracket Matrix update.

 

In the brackets that have been updated in the last day, we average to be around the 9th or 10th team out. A few weeks ago, I really thought we would be more firmly in the first four out by now by running the wins together that we have. This has been a sobering few days for all of us who follow the bracketologists.
