Wofford/UNCG tomorrow for the Southern title. Bubble teams will be pulling for Wofford. Wofford beat them by 30 and 29 in the regular season

Absolutely. Wofford is projected to get in even if they lose. Same with Buffalo at the mid-major level.

Give me either, but I'd prefer to even the score with scUM.

Not really afraid of playing MSU a third time. 

To hell with them both.

I actually admire UM basketball ever since Beilein took over. MSU? Well, that’s an entirely different apple. MSU and UNC are among my most hated collegiate athletic programs. Both are purely disgusting to me in their own ways. Others could be added to this list, but they stand out as among the worst...a disgrace to collegiate sports.

Sampson was an idiot for making calls knowing better, but UNC and MSU have suffered no consequences for alarmingly more serious charges. I hate them both, ‘til death do I part.

I’d think (or hope) that IU’s profound injury bug throughout the season would be at least a small factor in our consideration. Right? I mean...look at how IU plays with a healthy Phinisee?

I would think IU is probably in with one more win.

For me with the B1G going to 20 games this year I actually think that hurt IU more then helped them this year. I disagree with Katz. He says the 20 game schedule allowed them 2 extra game against better competition which gives them a chance with a terrible conference record. My argument is depending on which 2 B1G games got cut of the schedule you potentially could have 2 less losses and add 2 buy game wins against garbage teams. IU’s record would be 19-12(8-10) heading into Thursday. Doesn’t matter now just an interesting discussion

It helped mainly cuz the B1G was so strong this year and about every road game could be a quad 1 win. In last year's B1G, Nebraska could've been 15-5 and still missed the tourney.

Someone just posted in another thread that the head of the selection committee said explicitly they will consider injured players/roster availability during the season...tweet was posted by an OSU beat writer (thinking of Wesson, presumably), but IF true, our injury-riddled/streaky season might not look as bad to committee

I have no clue who this is, but I’ll be drunken by the cool-aid which he has to offer. 

I never heard of him but I looked his bracketology history up on the website below and he is "ranked" (take it for what you will) as the 79th most accurate bracketologist.  For comparison, Lunardi (who has Indiana out) is ranked 68th.

I really like Inside IU Basketball with Archie and Fisch. Sometimes it even gets a little candid, which is unusual for Archie. Loved his quiet confidence tonight when he said something to the effect of, “I don’t know who’s playing better than us right now, but give me these guys in a tournament setting.”

I don't know if only one more win will do it, but we do have one thing in our favor, college basketball IS talking about IU.  I do think having hype and coming on very strong late with so many Quad 1 wins really plays into our favor.  Plus, if we lose to MSU and it's a 2 or 3 point game, I think that will be in our favor as well to some degree.

Regardless, IU really needs to win 2 in the BTT to coming close to securing an NCAA Tourney bid.

The BTT bracket really screwed us. Hope 1 more win does it. MSU is the LAST team I wanted to face second round.
Would of rather gotten purdue but lets not worry about that until we win.
