I think you have been looking at RPI. The selection committee uses the NET now. We have 3 Quad 1 wins in the NET, and zero bad losses. Plus we are 7-1 in quad 2. There are some bubble teams with 4-5 quad 1 wins, but most also have some quad 3 and 4 losses and multiple quad 2 losses.TheX-Man wrote: ↑Tue Mar 10, 2020 12:05 amXU being in the field of 68 simply comes down to Wednesday and Thursday. Three possible outcomes:
1) X beats both DePaul and Villanova = NCAA lock regardless of anything that happens in other leagues.
2) X loses to DePaul = NIT
3) X beats DePaul buts loses to Villanova = Big time sweat on selection Sunday but likely out. Inevitably, a couple of teams in other leagues would probably earn their way in at the expense of a bubble team like X. Under this scenario X may only have one Quad 1 win. Simply not good enough which is why the Villanova win is the true key to an at large bid at this point.
We are also 45 in the NET.
Moreover, some of the bubble teams have lost multiple games to Big East teams (e.g., Texas and Texas Tech). They supposedly do not consider conferences, but they do consider head-to-head match-ups and common opponents.
A lot can change. But we still control our fate. I have to check the bracket matrix, but I still think if the selection were today, we would be in.
