    They aren't good losses, that is for sure. Iowa will win 21 games this year, but will be headed to the NIT.

    I think if Iowa beat Nebby and wins one in the confirm tourney they will be right on the cut line and I think they might make it in, I believe just by beating Illinios that the RPI is up to 75...

    Iowa's RPI is projected to be 77 if they beat Nebraska. In the low 90's if they lose. Will have to win 2 to get it down to the 60s in the BTT.

    Going to be difficult for Iowa to get in. They are going to have to get on a major run.

    Re: ***Official 2013 Bracketology Thread***

    My thoughts on tonight's games:

    Southern Miss isn't making the NCAA Tournament without winning C-USA. They still haven't beat anyone, and they picked up their first RPI sub-200 loss at Marshall tonight. Even their overinflated computer numbers won't save them.

    Ole Miss held off Alabama tonight which effectively was a bubble elimination game. Although I don't think Alabama losing finishes them off, it's going to be tough to make it when you have zero top 50 wins and zero top 100 road wins to date.

    If people think Iowa State is a bad road team, then Arkansas is an awful road team. They are 1-9 on the road this year with 7 of their road losses coming by 10 points or more, two of them being Vanderbilt and South Carolina. They have wins vs. Oklahoma, Florida, and Missouri, but with that bad road record and poor computer numbers, the Razorbacks will have to potentially make the finals of the SEC Tournament to have any shot at an at-large bid.

    Iowa is slowly creeping back into the at-large picture with everyone in front of them losing. While they are still only 3-8 vs. the RPI Top 50 and 2-8 on the road plus have weak computer numbers and a horrible non-conference SOS, beating Illinois was huge to potentially build momentum going into Big Ten tournament action. They'll need to reach the final to even be in at-large consideration, but if everyone in front of them plays themselves out of the tournament, then the Hoks might sneak in the back door.


    Favorite Teams:
    Kansas City Chiefs: 11-6, Next Game: Offseason
    Iowa State Cyclones Basketball: 28-7(11-7), Next Game: Sweet 16 vs. UConn
    Chicago Cubs: 66-96, There's always next year.

    That one win in the conference tourney is likely going to be against Nebby again. Back to back wins against Nebby with a loss to MSU will solidify their NIT bid.

    This will all be taken in to consideration for the Who Has the Most Wins Tournament that doesn't exist.

    Just saying that with only one more win for us, 20-11 finishing resume is probably NIT. Even the Hoks resume possibly look similar.

    The NCAA is probably trying to justify the rpi for political reasons and their innate ability to be subjective in their picks. Since most of our loss games have been somewhat close, we do not benefit with rpi as much as with a kenpom ranking. Pure wins will get us over the hump.

    The Hawkeyes Non Conference schedule is so terrible it will cost them a spot in the tournament. That was what dogged Virginia Tech every year. They would get like 10 to 12 conference wins a lot of years, but their non conference was so bad they wouldn't get selected for the tournament.

    People who think our resume is similar to Iowa's need help reading a resume. There are 13 non conf games. ISU played 7 teams in the top 150 RPI in non con....Iowa played 3. Doesn't matter how many less or more wins they have then us. UNI only has 17 wins but their RPI is higher than Iowa's for a reason.
