  1. Indiana (16-12) vs. Nebraska (20-9) Game Thread

    True, but that doesn't necessarily help our case. Atleast...in terms of comparing our resume to A&M. A&M average metric score is 20+ spots better than ours right now. We can hang our hate on SOR which in the past has been very important....outside of that, every other metric has us on the outside looking in right now.
  2. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Right now, a loss to Nova/Marquette puts them as the likely #7 seed in the Big East tournament. So no bye for them. In that scenario they will likely face DePaul. Lose that game and I would be surprised if they get in at that point. Win and then lose to Xavier in the next round and they are probably okay. But they are squarely on the 8-10 seed range which is not a good thing for teams that want to get to the sweet 16.
  3. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    We would be in rare company if we finish 13-5 and don't get in. Per Seed Madness below is the best major conference records to not receive a bid 1. Washington 14-4 in 2012 2. Alabama 12-4 in 2011 3. Oregon 13-5 in 2012 4. Kentucky 12-6 in 2013 5. Alabama 12-6 in 2013
  4. Penn St at Michigan game

    I believe the game is in Happy Valley which likely means a PSU win....although, beilein teams seem to turn it on around this time. We need Mich to continue to win win win. Win the last two on their schedule and they are a sure fire tier 1 win for us.
  5. Indiana (16-12) vs. Nebraska (20-9) Game Thread

    I agree...but with the unbalanced schedule I don't think that will matter to the committee. Looks a A&M...they could very well finish 7-11 in the SEC but that schedule will consist of playing only 2 +100 RPI teams. Our schedule on the other hand...we will have played 11 +100 RPI teams in conference. People will say Nebraska fattened their record on easy opponents yada yada yada but in reality, the Big 10 screwed us this year. I can't blame Miles or the team for that. Most years if we finish 13-5 our metrics will say we are a 4/5 seed. This year, the Big Ten is so down it very well could be a nail in our coffin if we don't beat PSU/Mich in the next two games.
  6. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Unfortunately, I don't think this is correct. When people say that the committee does not care about your conference finish I don't think they are lying I'm not saying that's how it should be, but Nebraska finishing 4th in the Big Ten is unlikely to be a deciding factor. The 11th place team in the SEC has an RPI of 25 and a SOS of 6. To go a long with that they have 5 Tier one wins and 3 tier 2 wins. If we fail to tack on another tier 1 win I think that resume easily gets in over us. We just have to keep winning and hope other bubble teams continue to lose. We have not had much luck in the past few days with bubble teams losing.
  7. HHCC Game #30 - vs. Indiana (Feb. 20, 8:00 PM CST)

    NU 75 Hoosiers 70 3 players
  8. Now What?

    23 wins was always the goal IMO. So, we need to win out and beat Michigan. Still doable.
  9. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Just a bad bad morning for us with Va Tech, Syracuse, and Texas winning. Holding out hopes Iowa St beats KSU.
  10. Nebraska on the Selection Committee Board

    So I can laugh at them. Would certainly knock down their holier than thou attitude a peg or two.

    Please let Creighton be involved...please let Creighton be involved....Please let Creighton be involved
  12. Selection Committee Games of Interest

    Speaking of USC, they just announced their second leading scorer is out for the remainder of the year with a patella injury. This will surely be factored in come Selection Sunday.
  13. Again, assuming we win out...a win vs KU would have improved our RPI by roughly 19 spots. Our predicted RPI would be #24 right now and a sure lock for the NCAA tournament.
  14. Let's assume we win out in the regular season. Right now, if we do that our RPI/SOS is predicted to be 43/101. Had we beat UCF and played WVU/St Johns our RPI/SOS would predicted to be 43/82 with a loss to St Johns. With a win vs St Johns that changes to 29/82. So, a pretty big difference in terms of SOS. But, had we not taken care of business against St Johns the second time around our RPI would be around the same. But, a win vs St Johns we are talking about 10+ spot difference in the RPI.
