I think we are ahead of Marquette at the moment with how this one went.  Texas will be an interesting case....

We are ahead of the following in my opinion

 

Syracuse

Oklahoma State

Marquette

Oklahoma

Notre Dame

Florida State

Arizona State

 

Then there are few others that are not ahead of us unless win tomorrow Alabama is on for sure

Think Florida State is pretty firmly in.   Dont think one can make a legit case for us on them.   The rest, we can

Thinking about a 18-15 (8-10) Alabama team making the dance and a 22-10 (13-5) Nebraska team not in the dance makes me want to throw up.

Well Middle Tenn eliminated by Doc.  Not good.  Middle resume not great at all.  

 

Honestly might end up being a 1 bid league.  Would not be surprised to see them get the St. Mary's treatment this year.

Okay hear me out and see if this makes sense.  Last night Bruce said 28 of the 36 at large are determined and that 6 spots could open up if teams on that list win conference tourney.    Obviously, SEC, ACC, Pac12, Big 12, Big East are possibilities.  That would leave one of Nevada, RI, St. Bonny, Middle Tenn as possibilty as the 6th so a good chance they did not have Middle Tennessee locked in yet right?

That is a correct from me.  MTSU has two Quad 1 wins..... West Kentucky and Murry State..... Joe L is going to keep them in..... WHAT!?!?!

If this resume gets MTSU in over us... wow what a joke that would be. Best wins are Murray State and Western Kentucky. Seven losses and four of them are bad. Their reputation from the past two tournaments is the only thing giving their chances any weight.

Louisville 38/Virginia 1 - 11am ESPN Virginia - 7 1/2  Need Virginia, preferably by way of blowout but it might be too late already.  
St. John's 88/Xavier 3 - 11am FS1  ESTIMATED LINE Xavier -5  Need St. Johns
Central Michigan 167/Buffalo 32 - 11am ESPN3 Buffalo - 8 1/2  Need Central Michigan and then if Buffalo wins this probably time to go with them
TCU 20/Kansas State 61 - 11:30 TCU - 2 1/2  Need TCU pretty bad here, preferably by way of blowout
Alabama 56/Texas A&M 24 - 12pm SEC Network Texas AM - 1 1/2  Need Texas AM pretty bad here
Boston College/Clemson - 1pm(pry closer to 1:30) Clemson -4  Need Boston College to help our metrics one more time
Oklahoma State 85/Kansas 6 - 1:30(pry closer to 2)  ESPN2  ESTIMATED LINE  Kansas - 3 1/2  Need Kansas very very badly for metrics and to knock out OK St.
Providence 42 /Creighton 34 - 1:30 FS1 Creighton -4  This is the bizarro world we live in.  We need Creighton badly.  You can do it once fellas.  
UNLV 126/Nevada 14- 2pm CBS Sports Network  Nevada - 6 1/2  Need Nevada to win this whole thing
North Dakota 220/Montana 96 - 2:05  http://www.bigskyconf.com/sports/2015/11/19/WatchBigSky.aspx Nevada -11 Need North Dakota for our metrics
Stanford 83/UCLA 36 - 4:30 Pac 12 Network UCLA -3  Need Stanford pretty bad
Long Beach State 186/CS Fullerton 162 - 4:30 Fox Sports West for satty folks, not sure any other way  Fullerton - 1 1/2 Need Long Beach St for metrics
Marquette 55/Villanova 2 - 6pm FS1 ESTIMATED LINE  Villanova -7 1/2  Need Villanova badly here
Notre Dame 64/Duke 4 - 6pm ESPN  ESTIMATED LINE  Duke -4 1/2  Need DUKE BADLY!
Texas 46/Texas Tech  23- 6pm ESPN2  EsTIMATED LINE Texas Tech -4  Need Texas Tech badly
LSU 89/Mississippi State 72 - 6pm SEC Network Mississippi St - 1 1/2  Need LSU to eliminate Mississippi St and not bump games at Mississippi St for folks down to Q2
Southern Miss 222/Middle Tennessee 29 - 6pm https://watchstadium.com/network/conference-usa/  Estimated LineMiddle Tennessee St - 9  Need Middle Tennessee St
UT San Antonio 181/Marshall 99 - 6:30 https://watchstadium.com/   ESTIMATED LINE Marshall -7  Need UTSA for metrics

East Carolina 271/UCF 78 -8pm ESPNU  UCF - 13 1/2  Need UCF for metrics 
South Carolina 75/Arkansas 30 - 8:25 SEC Network ESTIMATED LINE Arkansas -4  Need South Carolina but I don't think it matters much.  Either way it is going to likely bump someone down a quadrant for opposition road games or home games in Arkansas case
Oregon State 129/USC 35 - 8pm Pac 12 Network  ESTIMATED LINE USC - 4  Need Oregon St badly here
Chicago State 338/New Mexico State 41 - 8pm ESPN3 New Mexico St - 25 Need Chicago St here and then time to start rooting for New Mexico St. after this one
Utah State 157/Boise State 38 - 8pm CBS Sports Network  Boise St -7  Need Utah St. badly here
Butler 45/Seton Hall 28 - 8:30 FS1  Butler -1  Both pry in but outside shot Butler misses with a blowout loss so I guess Seton Hall.  I am conflicted though as a Butler win would drop Seton Hall home games for folks out of Q1 potentially
UAB 146/Western Kentucky 52 -9pm facebook live  ESTIMATED LINE Western Kentucky -3  Need UAB 
Oregon 69/Utah 49 - 10:30 FS1 ESTIMATED LINE Utah -  3 1/2  Need Oregon I believe, correct me if I am wrong

 

Others 

 

Georgia 81/Missouri 33 2:25  SEC Network ESTIMATED LINE  Missouri - 4 1/2  Need Georgia

 

 

Bump for the night slate.   List speaks for itself but the most key games are probably Oregon St, Utah St and Oregon.  We may need to flip the script now and root for Western Kentucky.  Certainly will have to if they win this game.

I am just sickened that Lunardi refuses to acknowledge we are right there

There has been 0 ever 15 loss teams in the NCAA tournament, and there hasn't been a 14 loss team in the tournament since 2011 (6 all-time). Assuming Alabama and Baylor don't win their conf tournament, currently Lunardi has 4 14-loss teams and 1 15-loss team above us. Dude likes to use metrics, but apparently hasn't done his research.

I hear ya man, there is no way we should be discounted so vehemently by this guy.  Its like he's taking it personally with us.  Not very professional at all.

Really hope the committee pays attention to SOR.  Last I looked we were like 35 and Bama was 65. 

 

Thats a pretty big gap.  IMO if Bama loses tomorrow they're out.

Like I said no 15 loss team has ever made the tournament. I highly doubt a 15 loss Alabama team from a conf without an elite team is the 1st.
