    Newest Bracketology

    Bracketology - NCAA College Basketball Brackets and Predictions - ESPN

    I know people think it's too early for this type of stuff but Lunardi has us in the first four out category. I'm surprised we jumped up that much after losing two games this past week.

    Am I correct that ISU wasn't even listed in Next Four Out last week? Or were we in First Four Out?

    Holding steady or rising even with two straight losses. Encouraging.

    A bunch of bubble teams must have dropped.

    *Now that I look closer, part of a lift had to come because Baylor is now on No. 1 line (and Missouri & KU both jumped to a 2). Overall conference evaluation, I guess.

    8 big ten teams in the tourney, and Minny as a last 4 out.

    Um, no. At least not if those teams keep losing to Iowa.

    We weren't listed at all and he said in his chat that last week was the first week we were even under consideration.

    Minny is playing better once they went in conference.


    Last four in: BYU, Cincy, Memphis, potential B12 teams. Southern Miss and ISU out looking. Can we offer Cincy a B12 spot if they let us into the NCAA?

    That's what I thought.

    Still obviously need several big wins to actually get there, but it shows how you don't have to be perfect to get near tournament status.

    Something that slipped through the cracks: Texas is probably a "good win" at this point. Didn't seem like it qualified.

    I know this is all hypothetical but if I live in Portland and I'm stuck with SDSU/BYU, Vanderbilt/Middle Tennessee, Gonzaga/Oral Roberts, and Creighton/Belmont I'm so ******.

    Re: Newest Bracketology

    Here is the recipe for getting in to the tournamennt.

    We have to sweep all the bottom half teams (or the majority)
    WE have to win out at home (maybe not Baylor)
    Finish with 12-13 conference wins and get at least 1 win in the B12 tourney.

    I guess we shall see....

    If we go 12-6 in conference play, we are a lock for the tourney, IMO. That being said, I HIGHLY doubt we only lose 4 more games this season. I expect about 10-8 record and a 5 seed in the Big 12 Tourney, which gives us a match up against the number 4 team (Kansas State) on day 2.

    12-6 might do it.

    I still have a gut feeling ISU will sweep Baylor.

    I won't rule out splitting with Missouri, either. Another gut feeling.

    If either of those happen, then get (1) split with KU and (2) split KSU/sweep Texas, we're safely in, barring more than one bad loss.

    Re: Newest Bracketology

    We finish in top 5 in our league and we're in. I just dont see the big 12 only being a 4 bid conf.

    I still think a&m could make a late season run and the Wins over them and tex look better.

    agreed if we go 12-6 there is no way we are held out of the tournament. I think a 9-9 record gets us into consideration and on the bubble. A good tournament showing would give us a much better chance. I think the 9-9 is the minimum and around an 11-7 record is almost a guaranteed spot. For the record I think we'll finish at 11-7 in conference play.

    Nobody's saying anything about the fact that we're out of the tournament, but Texas is in.

    I say we just win the tourney in "Hilton South" and don't worry about the selection committee
