I don't think we will get in as an at-large, unless we win out and lose to ODU or WKU in championship game (even that will be "iffy")

This conference, as good as it is this year, gets ZERO respect. This is on top of 3 consecutive C-USA first-round wins in the tourney.

No TV = out of sight = out of selection committee mind

You're right about the TV part (thanks Judy), but I do believe if you win out and lose in the tournament you guys are in. Most teams in the "others receiving votes" category will get at-large bids, and you guys are near the top of that list. Hopefully ranked by the end of the regular season. Just keep winning (until you play ODU) and I'll be surprised if you don't get that at-large, even if you lose early in the tournament.

I did some calculations on the RPI Wizard website and if we win out and lose to ODU in the championship game our RPI would be #18 which would be pretty much a lock for NCAAs. At least, it would be as of a few days ago when I ran the simulation.

GOOD NEWS on the ballot line -- every single AP Top 25 ballot that I've seen has had the Raiders. I'm feeling really good about our chances to be ranked this week!!

I feel a lot better about the "system" now. Maybe everyone is not "corrupted".

And not just because it's MT.
