Bracketology
http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketb...acketology

ODU is in the latest Bracketology from Joe Lunardi as the 13 seed playing the 4 seed West Virginia.

Middle is currently in the last 4 in making Conference USA a two bid league for the time being.

March is fun again!

RE: Bracketology
I really don't see MTSU getting in. That was a terrible, awful loss. A loss that the P5 teams on the bubble can't possibly get at this time. Just awful.

WKU will be favored. I would probably say by about 3-4.

None of the First 4 out or Next 4 out are stilll alive so that really helps MTSU

You might be right. 2 seed vs the 3 seed with our kenpom ranking being lower than theirs. 2.5 might be the correct number. Kenpom has it has us as a 1 point dog, but it could be a pick em.

RE: Bracketology
Very rare that a Top 25 team would be bounced from the bubble based on an OT loss. I think CUSA is a two bid league. And if ODU and WKU were on opposite sides of the bracket, there'd be fleeting arguments for three.

They aren't a Top 25 team though. The loss the Marshall in the last week hurt them too.

SB Nation has CUSA with 2 bids, MTSU with the at-large. They have them playing as an 11 seed in one of the play-in games. They have us as a 13 seed playing in Boise against Wichita State.

MTSU seems eerily similar to us in 2014-15. Great record, ranked at one point, and an unexpected quarter final tournament loss. I'd gain respect for the committee if they put MTSU in as at large but would guess they somehow end up in the first four out.

Well, Butler's around the 8/9 line so it won't be them at least.

Monarchs are favored by 1.

I don't gamble, but I did tell someone else about that line. It was ridiculous that we were favored. I told him WKU whooped us twice already and Vegas was making that line based on seeding alone. That guy bet $50 on WKU and told his co-worker who bet $500 on WKU. I've now told him I expect a tip in the mail. :)

I think they deserve a bid, but I also think what you predict is what will happen. The question then becomes does MTSU take a spot away that could have been ours?

The concern would be if Marshall beats WKU tomorrow. The NIT probably isn’t taking three CUSA teams and ODU is clearly the third of three.

Just looked at the NIT bracketology and OdU is not on it - I’m assuming because as of today (not updated yet) we were projected in the dance as the lowest remaining seed ..

For NYbuckets, that would be correct.
