    Three 1 seeds from the Big 12 would be crazy.

    Good work with the compilation.

    You're right, UNI isn't climbing any higher with that schedule. There isn't even much there for what's happened already. A Quad 1 win (Colorado) and a Quad 2 (South Carolina) ... Quad 1 loss vs. West Virginia. Anything else I'm missing in the non-con?

    Nope.

    Bradley is now NET 101 so that road win slips down to a Q2b win. Loyola on the road is their only chance for a Q2a win unless Bradley magically starts climbing in the NET rather than staying put or falling like they have been.

    So they are 1-1 in Q1a, 0-0 in Q1b, and 0-0 in Q2a with very little chance of improving those top 3 divisions.

    Old Dominion, Marshall and Grand Canyon all being unexpected dumpster fires killed the non-con schedule. UNI was counting on them being Q2b or, at worst, Q3 games and they all turned out to be Q4.

    Still ahead of where Belmont was last year. I figure if UNI can finish 14-4 in the league and then lose Sunday in StL, they'd end up with a trip to Dayton. That said, let's just win the tournament and take all the suspense out of it.

    Of course they're not very accurate a month and half out. They're not predicting how the season will play out, they are predicting how it would look at that time.

    So they can never be proven wrong and it would be ridiculous to tout that early predictions are gospel based on these guys being X% accurate at the end of the season as our hawk dressed as a panther was doing.

    I hope UNI gets in to give me someone to cheer for. We need to find some big wing players that can shoot.

    Yep, really the only accuracy rate considered should be at the end of year.

    So it is an invalid argument when a guy uses that end of year percentage as validation for the predictions they make halfway through the season. I'm glad we agree.

    Nah, no excuses. Scheduling is a total crap shoot.

    The Valley isn't getting two bids. Even with wins, UNI's NET is going to continue to fade off.

    If the ship was righted and we won the Big 12 tourney (our only path, I think) what be our seed? I’m thinking 9/10 at best.

    I would say play in game 11 seed. We don't just have losses. We have some bad losses.
