Looks like Lexington with a chance at Louisville. Yippee.
ISU as an 11 seed still. Last year at this time we couldn't get on anyone's radar, this year we almost can't get off. Lots of respect for Fred.
We are not last four in
I like that we are in the last four in, the draw would not be good...
Although ISU still has to take advantage of some signature-win opportunities, this shows how little is required to hold ground. ISU has moved from bubble to play-in to firm at-large in a 3-week span without doing anything special.
Something I noticed yesterday — that bad Tech loss, while still a red-mark on the resume, is now RPI 101-200, instead of sub-200.
I don't think that there will be 7 big 10 teams in. I just don't see it.
I would actually like that seed if the brackets turned out that way. Probably the easiest road to the championship, not that I think we're better than the teams in the 2 bottom brackets, but definitely dodging some really good teams.
You don't have to be really good or have a really good resume. You just have to have to be better or have a better resume than the #38 at large team.
The next two games are huge. Lose either one and we are outside looking in with a bit of desperation. Win and we have the bubble at arms length.
You are correct, though, that next two games can provide a boost.
Can't afford to lose either of the next two.
