  1. Knock off the top high schoolers 5 for the NBA and there will just be another top 5 on the list available for college. A bigger concern might be the development league and kids skipping the college experience for that. My feeling is that the college game will be better having kids play that want to go to college.

    NC State faces Virginia. Can't see them pulling that off.

    Wednesday's games are through. TCU was a winner and moves on. Butler is back on the shelf after losing to Providence. Thursday is going to be a big day. 14 teams still fighting for the last 6 spots. You can't enjoy the scramble without a schedule. And, of course, there is always the possibility that some outside team will win one of the conference tourneys and ****** one of the spots.

    Getting down to crunch time. Murray State and St Mary's have had their ticket punched for the NCAA Tournament. That probably leaves 14 teams fighting for the last 6 spots. You can't enjoy the scramble without a schedule. And, of course, there is always the possibility that some team will win one of the conference tourneys and ****** one of the spots.

    That's about it. If IU is the last one left out, remember this game because I'm not sure St Mary's would have gotten in otherwise. On the other hand, when we win the Big 10 Tourney we may be edging out someone else. Right now I think we are capable of beating anyone in the Big 10. Can we take everyone down on consecutive days? That may be the question. It could be the only way we get in though.

    Took me a second to figure that out, and then it hit. Right you are.

    That means that St Marys gets the automatic and Gonzaga will get in as an at large. St Marys was below us on the First Four Out list.

    St Marys just clobbered Gonzaga. This is not a good thing for us. Thinking that St Marys now eats up one of the bottom seeds with 22 wins and a thrashing of what was a probably #1 seed.

    Below are the latest bracket projections from Joe Lunardi broken into groups of four. With each team is their season record, Pomeroy rating, Sagarin Rating, and T-Rank Rating. The T-Rank Rating is probably closest to the breakdown that the NCAA Committee will use. It should make conference tournament watching interesting. Of course, as games are played the numbers will also change. BTW How in the world can Clemson be on the bubble? LAST 4 BYES Florida (17-14) 30-31-25 Seton Hall (18-12) 59-51-64 Arizona State (21-9) 62-53-71 Ohio State (18-13) 45-43-47 LAST 4 IN NC State (21-10) 31-24-36 Alabama (17-14) 60-58-50 Temple (23-8) 69-65-58 Clemson (19-12) 28-29-22 FIRST 4 OUT TCU (19-12) 48-37-42 Indiana (17-14) 42-33-48 Creighton (18-13) 49-42-45 Saint Mary's (20-11) 33-44-39 NEXT 4 OUT Furman (25-7) 55-77-61 Murray State (27-4) 51-55-66 Dayton (21-10) 58-64-57 Butler (16-15) 61-54-63

    The scramble at the end

    Here if the breakdown: Big Ten Basketball Tournament Tiebreakers Oct. 26, 2015 I. Teams shall be seeded No. 1 through No. 14 in the tournament bracket based on the final regular-season Conference standings. II. A team’s seed shall correspond to its regular-season finish (i.e., the champion shall be the No. 1 seed, the runner-up the No. 2 seed, etc.). III. Teams that finished Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the regular-season shall receive a “bye” through the first two rounds. IV. In case of a tie for any place finish in the regular-season standings, the following tie-breaking procedure shall be followed in order to seed teams in the tournament bracket: A. Two-team tie: 1. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular-season. 2. Each team’s record vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final regular-season standings (or in the case of a tie for the championship, the next highest position in the regular-season standings), continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage. a. When arriving at another pair of tied teams while comparing records, use each team’s record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie-breaking procedures), rather than the performance against the individual tied teams. b. When comparing records against a single team or a group of teams, the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1, but 2-0 is not better than 1-0). 3. Won-loss percentage of all Division I opponents. 4. Coin toss conducted by the Commissioner or designee. B. Multiple team tie: 1. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular-season. a. When comparing records against the tied teams, the team with the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1, but 2-0 is not better than 1-0). b. After the top team among the tied teams is determined, the second team is ranked by its record among the original tied teams, not the head-to-head record vs. the remaining team(s). 2. If the remaining teams are still tied, then each tied team’s record shall be compared to the team occupying the highest position in the final regular-season standings, continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage. a. When arriving at another pair of tied teams while comparing records, use each team’s record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie-breaking procedures), rather than the performance against the individual tied teams. b. When comparing records against a single team or group of teams, the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1, but 2-0 is not better than 1-0). 3. Won-loss percentage of Division I opponents. 4. Coin toss conducted by Commissioner or designee.

    Is that how the ties would be broken? Then how do you break the 3-3 and 3-4 ties?

    The scramble at the end

    Just playing mental math but the thing is, it isn't beyond the realm of possibility. Amazing how few games the middle bunch has left against the top of the conference.
  14. Time to do some crazy speculating. IU is 6-10 in conference and has two remaining games with Illinois and Rutgers. If we win both we are 8-12 in conference. Minnesota is 8-10 and has remaining games with Purdue at home and Maryland on the road. They could lose both and finish 8-12. Ohio State is 8-10 and has a road game at Northwestern and a home game with Wisconsin. The should beat Northwestern but let's say they don't and then lose to Wisconsin in Columbus. They would finish 8-12. Rutgers is 7-11 and has a home game with Penn State and then goes on the road to Indiana. If they hold serve against Penn State but lose on the road to Indiana they finish 8-12. Finally we have Illinois. They are 6-11. They have home games with Northwestern, Indiana, and Penn State. If they lose to Indiana and beat both Northwestern and Penn State, they finish at 8-12. And, there you have it a potential five way tie for 7th in the Big Ten and a tie breaker nightmare. Just food for thought on a crazy day when IU knocks off #6. Go Hoosiers!

    Then I'm thinking that he will be gone and the same is probably true of Davis. I believe that IU has a policy of guaranteeing these players support until they are granted a degree. If they are graduated in three years, I think the school responsibility has be fulfilled.
