Default New Bracketology By Creme

Here it is and we aren't in it. Re-emphasizes how important these next two games are.

I just don't see us making it -- unless we do strictly on Sherri's name and relationships around the country. Like --- it's Sherri. We love her. Throw OU in there as a bone to her.

I don't think Creme has thought it through. He has West Virginia in the field, despite the fact that they will probably finish fifth or sixth in the Big Twelve with us at #4. He has Colorado State at a #15 despite the fact that we beat them at home. Since they aren't winning their conference, that's an elective. We also beat South Florida who he has at a #6.

We've also played:
#1 UConn---there
#2 Baylor---there
#2 Baylor---home
#2 Texas---there
#2 Texas---home
#2 Oregon--there
#5 DePaul---there
#6 South Florida
#7 Oklahoma State---there
#7 Oklahoma State----home
#11 South Dakota State---there
#12 Belmont (they will win their title)
#15 Colorado State---there
#15 UALR---there (they will win their title)

That is 14 of 29 games against NCAA teams, six of which were against teams seeded #1 or #2.

You make a compelling case that we make it, Syb. I hope I'm wrong. I think there is progress to make on the very near horizon for the program. Not making the tournament would be a set back.

But Creme and others usually aren't that far off either.

I still lean a bit toward us not making it, but it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility either.

Which is generally more accurate: Creme or rpi? They are quite a bit different.

For us it could easily come down to the first round Big 12 tournament game vs TCU...winner makes tournament and loser goes to WNIT.

Is there a rule that an at-large team has to have a winning record? There is in volleyball. Texas A&M wasn't eligible despite having the #1 SOS in the country.

I'm not sure, but we are almost certain to have a winning or break even record.

If we win 4 of 4, we will be 17 - 12 going into Big-12 Tournament.
If we win 3 of 4, we will be 16 - 13 going into Big-12 Tournament.
If we win 2 of 4, we will be 15 - 14 going into Big-12 Tournament.
If we win 1 of 4, we will be 14 - 15 going into Big-12 Tournament. (Not Likely)

I would think if we win 2, and then lose in the first round of the Big-12, we will be on extremely shaky ground. In some ways we are already.

If you check, in some ways a 6th place finish would be better for chances in the Big-12 tournament, buy that would mean our record would be so bad, we would probably not be helped unless we ran the tables.

Unfortunately we are 3-11 against these 14. Not very good!
