    Teams We Want to Lose This Week

    Since seeding is all relative, the one factor that hasn't been talked about much on CF (at least that I have seen) relates to the teams ahead of us on the S-Curve.

    If we are to move out of the dreaded 8 - 9 game and into the 5 - 7 range, I think we need the team's ahead of us to lose - the worse the loss the better - while we win a few games. So, I think we need to cheer against Gonzaga, Louisville, Notre Dame, New Mexico among others. If these teams lose quickly, I think we can improve our seeding with only a win or two in the Big 12 Tourney.

    Who else do we have a legitimate opportunity to leapfrog over the course of Championship Week?

    Re: Teams We Want to Lose This Week

    Gonzaga and St. Mary's play each other tonight for the WCC championship. Unless we win 2+ in the Big 12 tourney, I think we are behind at least one of those teams.

    Notre Dame plays the winner of (Nova vs. Rutgers) vs. USF.

    Louisville plays winner of Providence vs. Seton Hall.

    *Cincinnati plays the winner of (Pitt vs. St. John's) vs. Georgetown.

    *San Diego St. plays B1G like foe Boise State.

    New Mexico plays Air Force.

    *UNLV plays Wyoming.


    *also think we can pass

    Re: Teams We Want to Lose This Week

    I really wouldn't put too much weight right now in saying that we are a ___ seed. We are mostly basing this off of Lunardi, and based off of other things I saw in the bracket, the guy is missing the mark on a lot of things. I'd honestly say that we are a 7 or even a 6 right now.

    We have to get out of the 8-9 seed so win our games and get into the 4-5 range.

    lol it seems Lunardi chooses his bracketology much like most of us fill out our ncaa tourney brackets. no insight and no clue what those teams have done. or is that just me?

    Exactly! And 22-9 in the Big 12 is a lot more impressive than 22-9 in the SEC.

    Florida
    SOS: 37
    RPI: 29
    Record vs. 1-25: 1-4
    26-50: 2-1
    51-75: 2-2
    76-100: 3-0
    101-200: 10-2
    201+: 4-0
    Jerseys say Florida

    Iowa State
    SOS: 35
    RPI: 30
    1-25: 2-5
    26-50: 2-0
    51-75: 1-2
    76-100: 0-0
    101-200: 10-2
    201+: 7-0
    Jerseys say Iowa State


    They have a one more win in the top 100 but other than that I don't see the diffence.
    Didn't see this before but we have one more top 50 win then Florida does.
