6 remaining teams
« on: February 13, 2018, 10:34:58 am »

6 remaining teams on our schedule and 5 are projected to make the tournament according to Joe Lunardi.  Tonight's opponent is the exception.  Need 3 or 4 wins to dance.  Tonight would go a long way.

This win really wouldn't go along way...these are the games that a tournament team is expected to win.

exactly. A win is "good job you took care of business"; a loss is "oh crap we better string some wins together."

You must haven't been watching much college basketball this year. A win on the road is never a guarantee. In the eyes of Lunardi a road win goes a long way.

I never said it was a guarantee. I said you are expected to win this game if you are a tournament team.

A win tonight goes a long way because a loss would be very harmful at this stage. Every game the rest of the way is huge.

2 weeks ago Palm was on and said the Hogs had to beat the teams they had left on the schedule that were not going to make the NCAAT, at the time that was LSU, SC, Vandy and Om. They turned around 2 days alter and lost to LSU. They really need to win tonight. OM is bad, OM has been fading, and OM RPI is 104

I agree, a loss to OM tonight would be a dagger, not death but major blood loss.

A loss tonight, imo, would move them to the 1st 4 out. That of course would change if they come back and win Sat.

We still have a lot of space between us and the line. It would probably drop us from our spot at +11 to around +6. All the teams in the "last 4 in" seemed to lose a game last week but didn't budge because they all lost a game. Gave us a bit of a buffer.

The committee hasnít even met yet. You guys do know that these brackets arenít real, surely. When the season ends the real committee will decide all of this. Wringing your hands about it or speculating about it is an exercise in trying to bag butterflies without a net.

Yes, we realize it is all PROJECTIONS, that's whey they all say PROJECTED bracket. No one is asking you to participate.

Adam hit the nail on the head - a loss likely drops us a seed line (10-11 instead of 9-10), not out of the tournament.

IMO, a win doesn't do much to our current seeding, but it gets us to where a 2-3 record over our final 5 is acceptable for staying put at a 9-10 seed. Which begs another question -

Is it better to go 2-4 over our last 6, maybe win 1 in the SECT and sneak in the tournament with an 11 seed OR finish strong going 4-2, win 1 in the SECT and get that magical 8 seed?

11 seed for sure. I canít take another year of fans claiming ďwe went to toe to toe with a 1 seed!!! Yay!!Ē

Looking at the schedule it's not hard to imagine an 0-6 finish.  It's probably not likely, but it wouldn't be shocking if it happened.

To me it would be a surprise considering we have had only 1 losing season in the SEC under MA.
