Not a great night for us with KSU and Marquette winning.  We really needed those two teams to go away.  Marquette's schedule is very favorable for them down the stretch.  Hopefully they lose @ St Johns.

Yeah.  With the Big 12 being a league that is perceived as “up,” I am going to guess that probably all .500 teams get in and maybe even an 8-10 team depending on who it is.

Just so I understand this right: St. John's beats Villanova and Duke but is still considered a very bad loss for us since they beat us badly on their home court on our first road game early in the year. I guess I understand this since they are such a terrible team. Maybe someone could explain it to Jay and Mike.

I don't necessarily disagree with where he has us as of now. But it's weird to me that a road win against a decent team actually moved us down his pecking order. I suppose he probably sees Minnesota as a worse team than I do.

 

It really sucks knowing that our resume won't end up matching the quality of our team. The RPI won't be climbing much and we won't be adding any "quality" wins (at least on paper). These committee members really better be watching us every game down the stretch. We deserve to get a shot in the tournament.

Thanks again for doing this...curious your perspective on why we want USC vs. Az St.?  My opinion is that we would strongly want Az St. since they are more firmly in the field around an 8/9 seed where USC is on a lot of first four in/next four out lists.  This would also be a huge Tier 1 road win for USC and with a loss, Az State won't slide out of most brackets.  Just want to hear your thoughts as you typically have some differing takes.

You guys are doing such a good job of keeping this thread going that I am just gonna watch the rest of the year. Would be super nice if Dana could help us out tonight. I'll just leave it at that.

I was probably looking at the fact USC has played so much better in the league too much.  You may well be correct.  No strong feel from me in this instance.  This one may be too early to tell as well.

All three of the Pac-12 home teams would be good for this moment. But, with 7-8 games left, you just never know. But, give UW, UCLA and USC more losses and I am good with that.

Edited my post to sun devils as you guys seem to have a better feel for that one than I do.

 

I don't know.  I think you have a good point when it may be too early to tell.  I think in the here an now we want Az St.  However, they have been sliding and not playing good basketball.  They have alternated wins and losses over their last 10 games.  Their upcoming schedule is USC, UCLA, Arizona, @Oregon.  With the way they are playing, its not inconceivable for them to lose all 4 of these games or three out of four, which likely slides them right onto the bubble.  So, these debates and bubble games are fun as hell to watch and discuss but in reality Miss Cleo is dead and you can't predict how the rest of the season will play out.  So someone we may want to win tonight, we may have the exact opposite mindset in a couple of weeks.  Nebraska being relevant this year has turned me into a much bigger college hoops fan this season because I sure as hell wouldn't normally care who wins this game or Marist vs. Saint Peter on a random Thursday night!!!

I'm going to guess that Marist has had a halftime lead in like 8 of the past 10 games.  Good lord.
