Florida @ Texas A&M
Iowa St @ Oklahoma

VCU picks up their first bad loss at home against George Mason. I expect we'll take their spot in the field.
Vermont won their 10th game in a row last night and are up to #82 in NET. Aside from a rematch (of their only conference loss so far) at Stony Brook next Thursday, they should likely run through their remaining regular season schedule pretty easily.

With SMU and UConn on the brink of losing Q2 status, and Tulsa unlikely to rise 11 spots to Q2 with 4 tough road games remaining, Vermont getting to Q2 is our last hope of getting a resume boost through OOC victories.

Yea.

The more I look at it, the more I see a very thin and fragile resume that is relying on uconn, and Jank to hold it together and for frank haith to improve it. Its bad.


If I had to guess, I think you'd need to win out the rest of the regular season to make the tourney. One loss, even to Houston likely puts us on the outside.


Just win the conference tourney and its all pointless. BUT lose one more game to anyone on our schedule and we should feel real nervous

I'd like to keep this thread focused on the games we don't play. Let's put speculation on what results we need in our games in the bracketology thread.

True, our resume has some teams barely hanging onto their quadrants (Houston as well). Other bubble teams have the same situation too. That's why I track these games - results that are outside our control matter. For what it's worth, Torvik predicts that Vermont will end up in the top 75, and both UConn and Tulsa will stay there.

Thursday February 13

Iowa @ Indiana
Washington @ USC


Indiana got a big Q1 win. USC picks up a Q2 win.

UCF may be in danger of dropping out of the top 135 after their 17 pt home loss to Wichita St.

we need houston to stay a quad 1 win no matter what don't we? houston is a favorite, we probably need them to go ahead and win. sucks if smu drops from quad 2, but those quad 1 wins seem so important.

You're not wrong. If it was March 7 I would definitely agree. It's hard to tell this early for games where we'd want both teams to win.

A Houston win would keep us even. A SMU win would slightly diminish.

We also need UCONN to beat Memphis.

Not a great day overall. Georgetown got a huge win at Butler that probably puts them in the field. Alabama and Virginia picked up quality wins. On the other side, Arkansas, Stanford and VCU continue to struggle.
