We need SDSU to beat Utah St for sure.

Purdue to lose to Rutgers.

Wichita St to lose to Tulsa.

I know there are more but they would help us.

Utah St's Sam Merrill just hit one of the coldest game winners you will ever see to seal the bid

Memphis basically needs to win the AAC tournament to get in. No help with the win against Wichita, and I don't think they can beat Houston on the road, knowing the past road struggles.

5-5 in road games

Really should have beaten Cincy
And could have beaten UConn
But could have lost to several too

Houston should win, but we are good so you never know

Most have given up, but I still think a run to the AAC finals might be enough to get us in.

So for bubble-watch today, we need:

ETSU to win the championship tonight over Wofford.
Gonzaga to beat San Fran in the semis.

I would love for you to be right but I think we just have too many bad losses to get in without winning the AAC championship.

Now, I also think we have the talent to get hot for a few days and run through our conference. We also have the ability to lose by 20 in the first round, so...

If Tulsa had won on Sunday maybe...

Then we would have both Cinci and Houston to play before the final...Just beating ECU, Tulsa and Houston aint gonna do it.

I think the only chance to get an at large bid would be to play Cincy in the final

Because they are a lock of them make the final

UConn or Wichita State would take our potential bid

Making the final puts us ahead of both UConn and WSU, solid wins over Tulsa and Houston help a lot and ending 24-11 with wins over

NC State
Cincy
Houston
Houston
Wichita State
UConn
Tulsa
Tennessee

Is not bad

Absent too many upsets we could get a bid

Yep, we play Sunday, we might be okay, win or lose.

If I'm the NCAA and I see us in the final, I put us in a spot that can be flipped easily... 11/12 either way, but we go to Dayton and first four with a loss.
