    20 Losses and going dancing

    Liberty (15-20) is going to the NCAA tournament. Maybe the discussion for automatic bids can get started and think about the conference season being the way into the tournament.

    I like the tournament format for the auto bids. It's not like them winning their conference tournament is keeping somebody from the final 4.

    Bids like this are exactly why all the play in games should be 16 seeds.

    That probably should be the case, but the 12 seeds have had many opportunities to secure their spot.

    And the 16 seeds usually had plenty of opportunities to secure better as well, and failed.

    Not necessarily, cause they'll be in a play-in game

    Re: 20 Losses and going dancing

    Wonder what all ISU fans would say if the Cyclones had the same record and won the Big 12 tourny. I hope we never have that kind of season with so many losses but makes me wonder if people would be complaining if that was our team.

    Self awareness is not a strength of most CF posters.

    I'd giggle my way to the bank.
    It wouldn't be our proudest record, but no refunds on the tournament trip.

    I think each conference decides how they want their automatic entry decided and if they want to they can have the regular season champion be the auto qualifier.
