    I'm not buying that. It's still a horrible loss now, just like it was in November.

    **** on the losses. Let's continue to take care of business in the Big 12. Nine or ten wins will get us into the tourny.

    The UNI loss is starting to look worse.

    Shouldn't lose to Drake, ever. This team would crush them right now.

    That just tells me that the Valley falls off a bit after #1 and #2. It's not the end of the world like it seemed at the time, but that's mostly because the team has gotten their **** together for Big 12 play and our non-con losses might not matter as much.

    Re: Drake loss isnt as bad as thought as of today

    I think it's a bad loss, but Brent Blum just tweeted that all five of our losses are to teams currently in the RPI top 100. It doesn't look so bad when you're looking at the number, but I still think it is.

    Not a bad loss yet as RPI goes. Still a game we should have won that certainly doesn't help our case for the tourney.

    Re: Drake loss isnt as bad as thought as of today

    Still not happy about it. If they win the MVC, I'll cry a little less. That's about it.

    And not just due to the 50 million credits. The $ on the ticket, and having to lose a game that my false expectations built up to be a "name our score" blowout.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Drake loss isnt as bad as thought as of today

    We certainly could have used one of the two Drake/UNI to improve our chances of making the tourney. A lot of so-called experts are predicting only 4 from the B12 this year, and those losses would likely be a deal breaker if we finished at say 9-9 or possibly 10-8. If we finish at 10-8 as it stands now, we'll probably have to win at least one in the B12 tourney to lock us in.

    Re: Drake loss isnt as bad as thought as of today

    Eh, I think the committee will shrug this loss off considering it was in early November. If we keep playing like we have, they value the last 10 games more than early November losses.

    This would surprise me if it proved to be true.

    I was going to say that I think unless there is a logjam at 10-8, that record will probably get ISU in. But then I went and looked at ISU's schedule moving forward and they might have to win some road games but wouldn't necessarily have to have a "good win" to get to 10-8 (20-11) so you may be right. If they get to 10-8 without a big win, they might be on the outside looking in.
