    Seventh Place

    I fully understand that 7th place and 8 bits will get us a cup o' joe at the corner Casey's ...

    But is there a tie breaker between TCU, WVU, and ISU? Or is each school free to claim 7th while wooing recruits in the coming weeks?

    Re: Seventh Place

    ISU starts with I
    TCU starts with T
    WVU starts with W

    Sucks to be WVU. Alphabet, bitchez!

    Re: Seventh Place

    The three teams went 1-1 against the other two that they are tied with.

    ISU beat WVU and lost to TCU
    TCU beat ISU and lost to WVU
    WVU beat TCU and lost to ISU

    ISU's and TCU's other conference win was over KU. WVU's was over OSU (their only loss of the season). But at the same time that means WVU lost to KU.

    Is this thread kind of like Mr. Irrelevant on NFL Draft Day?

    Re: Seventh Place

    The conference tiebreaker goes to record against highest team in standings, so WVU would win that since they beat OSU. Then TCU beat us so they would be next. But this is all moot because there is no tiebreak procedure for seventh place - only first, so we can lay claim on seventh all we want.

    Re: Seventh Place

    Both WVU and TCU have an additional OOC game win. So it's not really a question; we're 9th.

    This is not at all true. Conference play is all that matters.

    Non-conference games don't count towards conference standings.
    We tied for 7th.

    The Athletic Department is slacking, I haven't got an email about how to purchase a 7th place t-shirt yet.

    Re: Seventh Place

    Awkward to win 2 conference games (in round-robin conference) but be better than 3 teams . . .

    Hey, we might be in the cellar. But at least we're at the top of the cellar.

    This is like arguing over which resident in the nursing home has the nicest set of knockers.
