    This team will get 11.

    Our amps go to 11. Hopefully they can go past 11 though.

    I think any of the major computer rankings are as good or better than the AP and coaches polls.

    We're not a brand name school in a brand name conference. We need 11.

    That has nothing to do with the selection process.

    10-8 should be enough. 11 clinches it. 10 with a tourney win should do it to.

    But you never know, lot can happen.

    Just take care of OU tomorrow first.

    Correct, this isn't the BCS people. If it was George Mason and VCU would never get a shot

    It's a rabbit hole without end.


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

    A couple of teams have to get hosed. It happens every year. How does the selection committee decide whom to hose?

    Re: Updated ESPN Bubble Watch

    I think it's likely that a team that is not a tournament-worthy team right now wins either the Pac-12 or A-10 tournament. Those two conferences both have a lot of parity and no real strong team. It's very possible that both conferences send a tournament winner that wouldn't be in without winning their conference tournament.

    When you throw in other conferences with a strong at-large team that could lose the tournament, I think that the bubble shrinks 2-3 teams.

    There's a reason for your 11-win crowd to get nervous again.

    Lol. That might be reason to be nervous at 10 wins, but 11 would be just fine. Even 10 is still probably fine. We're not in the last 4 in.
