Is 11-6 (23-8) enough to get us in or will we need to win 1 or 2 in Fort Worth? Guess it will depend on who we beat and who we lose to. Not many chances for good wins but certainly ample opportunities for more bad losses like UGA

Losing 6 more? Pfft. Right now, we would be favored in all but 3 games the rest of the season.

And it wasn't a bad loss. It was a game we shoulda won - but not a bad loss. There are 7 teams ranked ahead of us with worse losses than this. Heck, UK has 2 losses that are much worse.

You want to talk about lack of opportunities for big wins, yes, they're limited right now. But let's be real, this isn't a bad loss.

Are you always this pessimistic, or is it just basic trolling?

FWIW.... Realtime RPI has Memphis projected to finish 22-9. Projected to win every home game and losing every away game except @ Tulsa and @Tulane.

Been watching a lot of AAC ball this year. Don't see away losses at UCF, USF, UConn, or Tulsa. We defend too well to lose to teams like these. I think 26-5, 25-6 is more realistic.

RPI is a terrible metric. Only thing it's halfway good for is strength of schedule. Please do not use it to place bets - unless you're betting with me, lol.

RE: The Rest of the Schedule
IF we can get everyone healthy and begin performing with talent we have, believe a good chance to go 25-6, prior to postseason AAC tourney, and play deep into said tourney. All players and coaches need to get on the same page, next game up always most important, no matter who we play.

In viewing other leagues and teams, just need to hang around top 30 program. With this, should see a 5 seed or 6 at worst case. Don’t want to get in that 7-10 seed slot, tough climb.

I suspect by the end of the season UGA won't be that bad a loss.

RE: The Rest of the Schedule
According to NET today...
The UGA loss was a Quad 2 loss (not a bad loss).
Our record by quadrant:
Q1: 2-1
Q2: 0-1
Q3: 5-0
Q4: 5-0
Tonight is 1 of 4 remaining Q1 games. The others are 3 of the last 4 games of the season.
We have 8 remaining Q2 games.
We have 4 remaining Q3 games, including the next 2 after tonight.
We have only 1 remaining Q4 game - ECU; fortunately we only play them once.

I'm not a subscriber, but the best I can tell...According to KenPom today...
We should have a 12-2 record.
Should have lost to Oregon.
Should have lost at UTK.
(Should have beaten UGA.)
Should lose tonight at Wichita.
Should lose @ Cincy.
Should lose @ Houston.
Projected finish 26-5.

RE: The Rest of the Schedule
According to Sagarin today...
We should have a 13-1 record.
Should have lost to Oregon.
Should lose tonight @ Wichita.
Should win the next 15.
Should lose the last game @ Houston.
Projected finish 29-3.
Averaging ranking of opponents this year is 122. Last year, I believe it was 137.
Average ranking of AAC opponents this year is 95, versus last year of 111. (Down year for the AAC, pfft.)

RE: The Rest of the Schedule
I'm not ready to concede losses @ Cincinnati. They are not the same team as they were last year, and they have a couple of questionable losses - Colgate (in Cincinnati) and Bowling Green (in a tournament).

We went into Knoxville & Birmingham and came out with wins, so we can win in a hostile arena. Not saying Tenn & UAB are juggernauts, only that we've proven that we can win on the road.

Good think no one respects your opinion. If this team can't beat Georgia, it will struggle during the conference games.

I'm wondering what our impressive wins will be come March. UTK and Ole Miss are 9-5. NC State's 11-4. Being on the bubble is looking pretty good right now.

You are a pathetic little punk. Maybe your daddy can buy you a new personality because your current one sucks.

Goodbye polls.
ESPN places us on the bubble.

Lucky to get in NCAAs at this point...
