We aren't making the tournament. Enjoy the thought of currently being in it though!

RE: Bracketology- updated as of 2/1
what I would call a pretty ugly one from Jerry Palm today-
Butler 9 S vs Wichita St, Virginia in Charlotte
Seton Hall 6 S vs VT/Kan St, Mich St in Detroit
Nova 1 E vs FSU/Missouri in Pittsburgh
Creighton 9 W vs TCU, Duke in Charlotte
Providence 9 MW vs Nevada, Purdue in Detroit
Xavier 2 MW vs Louisville/New Mexico St in Nashville

this would be IMO the absolute worst case scenario. Creighton's projected to have a 258 OOC SOS(right now it's at 269). They only have road wins in conference play vs Georgetown and St John's. I could easily see them like this a line or 2 lower than many folks think because of the SOS.

And an UGLY scenario for Seton Hall. And probably worst case scenario for Xavier as well.

RE: Bracketology- updated as of 2/2
A big mix today from Lunardi:
Villanova 1 E Pittsburgh Florida St/TCU rd 2
Seton Hall 6 E Dallas Houston, Texas Tech
Xavier 1 W Nashville Wagner, Florida/Arizona St
Butler 7 W Charlotte Arkansas, Duke
Creighton 7 S Nashville M Tennessee, Auburn
Providence 11 MW Dallas Gonzaga, Clemson

Providence last team with bye
Marquette 1st team out

The good- obviously Xavier being a 1. Creighton having by far the best path from a 7 seed
the bad- Butler with a brutal path. Providence with a yuck as well...

Lunardi from today:
Butler 7 S Nashville vs TCU, Cincy
Xavier 1 W Nashville vs Nevada/Texas
Creighton 6 W Dallas vs New Mexico St, Auburn
Villanova 1 E Pittsburgh vs Florida St/Alabama
Seton Hall 7 E Detroit vs Arkansas, Mich St
Providence 10 MW Charlotte vs Florida, Duke

Providence 3rd team with bye
Marquette 2nd team out

Pretty ugly one for the other 4 non 1 seeds. Only one you feel anywhere near good with is Butler. Seton Hall and Providence with the 2 worst paths for a 7/10 seed.

Villanova with the #2 overall seed now for first time in a few weeks after last night.

I think with Marquette at least- Boise listed right now as MWC automatic team as leading conference. looks like if they don't win, they're out. So Marquette may be 1st team out right now if that were the case.

If Marquette doesn't go dancing this year, they have no one to blame but themselves. They get blown out by Butler in a tournament-ramification game, then lose to Providence at home on National Marquette Day. Then, they nearly blow last night's game after Rowsey fouls a three point shooter at the end of the game. Georgetown and St. Johns are nowhere near the automatic wins that would predicted earlier in the season. The two against Creighton will be very tough as well.

A lot has to go in their favor, after they failed to capitalize on certain games earlier this year.

No doubt. Several teams can say that- Temple in AAC if they miss would be the same way(if they don't have the 4 bad losses, they're a lock right now).

2/12 update from Lunardi
Butler 8 S Charlotte vs Missouri, Virginia
Creighton 7 S Pittsburgh vs Arkansas, Cincy
Seton Hall 9 W Detroit vs TCU, Purdue
Providence 10 W Wichita vs Texas A&M, Kansas
Villanova 1 E Pittsburgh vs Nevada/Louisville rd 2
Xavier 1 MW Nashville vs Kentucky/Florida St rd 2

Providence 3rd team with a bye

If you had told me a month ago that Seton Hall would be a 9 seed, I'd have said you were insane.

Marquette, absolutely rightly so, is now off the bubble completely. Hall is an intriguing tournament team because they have so much veteran leadership, if they can finish strong and get up to a 6/7, it will go a long way in determining how far they can go. 8/9 will be brutal, IMO. Butler and Creighton can compete with anyone.

The best part about the current seedings is that Nova/X are 1's. That is so HUGE. If things remain the same, the Big East is looking at its strongest tournament selection yet. While its no guarantee they go far, they are set up incredibly well for a dual-BE tournament run.
