Ohio state, seaton hall and Minnesota stick out in my mind
They were in the first four were they not?
They both lost in the play in game and didn't get a seed. They were close to making the tourney though
The first four is stupid but it’s still apart of the tournament.
Couldn't have said it any better myself.
Are you now seeing where we are all coming from saying uni can still get an at large and mvc would get 2 in at that point
Everyone knows this, Twins is just trolling like normal saying it isn't a part of the NCAA Tournament.
UNI losing to Indiana State ALMOST ends their at-large chances. That win over Colorado isn't going to be enough on its own. If they lose in the MVC title game in some crazy close situation against Loyola, and there are almost no bid thieves, it's possible but they would be in the First Four. 4 losses in this year's MVC isn't going to cut it for getting an at-large bid.
No. MVC is 11th in conference RPI this year. UNI currently only 1-1 vs. Quad A. If they had beat West Virginia or not lost their last two road games in the MVC, we'd be talking but that Indiana State loss just killed any remaining hope.
Lots of things would have to go their way for this to happen. It's not 100% impossible, but highly unlikely. Looking at only 1 Quad-1 win on the season regardless of what happens the rest of the way.
No. Perfect storm they can MAYBE get a play in game opportunity but I still don't think that's a possibility. No chance they actually get a seed
As pointed out before. Multiple teams got at larges last year with worse NET rankings
NET isn't the only criteria the committee will use and UNI's rating will not improve much given their upcoming competition. Yes, you are technically correct here but very, very few teams with only 1 Quad-1 (used to be RPI Top 50) win will ever be selected as an at-large. I'd give them a 5% chance of everything going their way for this to happen - not impossible but highly, highly unlikely.
This has to hurt
Personally, I figured the Indiana State loss ended any at-large chances. But, and I know what the replies will be, Lunardi said on the broadcast Sunday that if UNI won that game and won out, until an MVC championship game loss, they would be in as an at large.
Might want to have the ncaa let in on this “everyone knows” thing.
I'm sure Twins keeps them in his loop.
I was 100% the play-in was part of tournament until last week. NCAA website history of play in game(which I posted) changed my mind.
JFC, you really aren't this dense are you? At least Twins is just trolling it and has admitted a million times the NCAA counts the field of 68 as each having an NCAA Tournament appearance.
Chris Mullin was asked to step down after losing the play in game. If he makes the tourney he's still the coach
