Hey if your standards for Oklahoma basketball are "hooray we are in the play-in game!" then I guess you're pretty happy. My standards are higher.

If we lose at "home" tomorrow night we might not recover.

Not embarrassing, but not meeting expectations, either.

Seems to me like he posted a factual statement without any editorializing about how anyone should feel.

That's troubling to me as well. A bubble year like this should be a down year. Instead it seems to be the norm.

Yep. Reminds me of that meme with the dog/person surrounded by fire saying "I'm fine, everything is fine."

Not saying our program has been burnt to the ground, but there is enough smoke that I know it's on fire to some degree.

So looking at bracket matrix. Of the top 64 teams, we have beaten West Va and UNT. And UNT probably wouldn't be top 64 if they weren't expected to win CUSA. If they don't win their tournament, will they get in?

Have you taken a look at other bubble teams to see how they compare?

Irrelevant. We may get in, may not. Just making the dance but with no realistic shot to make any noise doesn't do it for me.

The play in game might be our best shot at winning a tourney game. We should feel fortunate if we make it in at all. However, this BS is getting old every year. The program should be better than this. We shouldn’t be on the bubble every damn year.

Just so I have this straight: in a thread assessing our tournament chances, it is irrelevant to discuss our profile relative to the teams we are competing for bids with? Just making sure your position is as silly as it seems at first blush. I know you and others are itching to turn every thread into a referendum on the state of the program and whether Lon should be fired, but the original post simply provided current information on our chances.

Fair point. My post was off topic. Carry on.

Texas isn't a surefire win anymore. They have picked it up recently. With OU being so Jekyll and Hyde, no game is a surefire for OU.

Updated, Lunardi has us in the play-in game (as an 11-seed), which I think is underseeding us a line. He has Cincy, Rhode Island, Utah State, and East Tenn. State all ahead of us. We have a superior resume to all of those teams and I believe it would bear out that way if today were selection Sunday.

Jerry Palm (CBS) has us as the 10 seed as of now, which is a little more in line with where we are IMO.
