    Xavier moving into bubble position, too, possibly.

    The lowest seed Ohio State has ever received in the NCAA tournament is 10. It looks like that will change this year.

    I will take any seed they decide to give us as long as we somehow end up Dancing after this rough, rough season.

    Yep and many of the 5/6 teams are beatable even for OSU

    Would rather be a 10-11 seed than be an 8-9 seed, TBH. I want no part of the #1 seed in a potential 2nd rd matchup.

    I feel the 6-11 seeds are pretty much interchangeable every yr in the tourney and it's more about how teams are playing coming into the NCAA Tournament and personnel matchups than anything else.

    I think that win takes OSU off the 12 line (last 4 in) and maybe puts them in the 10-11 range as long as they don't lay an egg vs. MSU and are competitive.

    Longhorns steaming towards 16-16. It would seem unfair for a 16-16 team to be given an at-large bid to the tournament, just seems like a lot of mediocrity. I gotta give Texas credit for one thing, they find a way to raise the bar on underachievement.

    Horns are still within striking distance in this one.... but I'm with u. Don't have any confidence that they can close out a close game. Can't see them in at .500

    Texas is done. No way they put a .500 team in. More room for the Buckeyes

    Why the hell is Bill Walton on any TV broadcast? He's got 5 brain cells left and would put 8 PAC 12 teams in the tournament.

    I give up if Texas makes the tournament. 16-16 should pretty much disqualify you automatically for an at-large bid.

    Texas does have arguments in their favor. Super strong schedule. 7 wins over tournament teams (if OU is in) with 3 of them really strong wins. But a .500 team has never gotten in as an at-large.

    I know Q wins are a big topic of discussion, but at some point you have to win games. And 16 losses is a lot no matter how many good ones you have.

    WVU gunning for an auto-bid

    I watched KU throttle WVU in person at Allen Field House a few weeks ago. WVU is going to need to do something much different this time around bc KU got everything they wanted in that game and WVU had no answer. I see a much closer game than that was but still have the Jayhawks prevailing, playing in front of a home crowd in KC.
