Without going 5-1 or one of the current 4 seeds tanking in the last few games, I'm not sure I see a path to a 4 seed. I think the 5 and 6 seeds are pretty clumped but I think the top 4 seed lines are starting to separate themselves and their just isn't that many opportunities for them to stumble. Looking at bracketmatrix, the 4 seeds are currently Penn State, Nova, Oregon, and Creighton. Combined, those 4 teams have 14 Q1, 6 Q2, and 2 Q3 games remaining. They won't get punished for losing the Q1 games and won't get that hurt by Q2 losses. So unless Oregon loses to Cal or Penn State loses to Northwestern, we are going to have outplay them but multiple games down the stretch to pass them.

Let's start with us beating Creighton by 20 or so tomorrow!

5 playing in Tampa.  Also appears that 8 Beast teams is still very much in the picture.

Considering I will be in Tampa, I would take that. Nova on the other side too. Nice!
So, it won't happen.

4 brackets have us at a 7 seed on bracketmatrix and 1 has us at a 4 seed

I feel like there is a small area to slip up (difference between 6 and 7 seed), i would like our chances way more if we were a 5/6 rather than a 7

Seriously, auburn team struggling away from home. Hall having locker room issues, SDSU not having played a real team in awhile, and duke who id hope Wojo is intimately familiar with.

During the selection show last year, CBS threw up a graphic that in the last 34 years, 6-seeds have a .625 win pctg in the round of 64 (85-51). 5-seeds are .654% (89-47).

If you can snag that 4-seed, it jumps to .794% (108-28).

If you gon on TRank, if we lose only one game the rest of the regular season we would be a 4 seed

Looks we are settling in to a spot between 5 and 7 seed. Yes that is 12 spots so a wide range.

I am typically optimistic. But I think we go 3-3 to finish the season and end up with a 7 seed.

3-3?? Who in the hell are you seeing three losses against?? That would be an unmitigated disaster given who is left on their schedule after tonight. If they win tonight, I honestly think there's a better chance they win out then to go 3-3. 3-3 would mean losing to one of...@ PC, @ SJU, @ DuhPaul, Georgetown at home, and that's assuming you feel like they will lose to Hall and Creighton...If they lose one of those other remaining games...you're god damn right it would be inexcusable.

We are 1-5 since the start of the new Big East @ St. John's...no road game is ever a lock and certainly not an "unmitigated disaster"

Whoa. Settle down.
Inexcusable? I never said that. I can certainly see L’s against Creighton, Seton hall and possibly even at St Johns.

I’m a realist. And realistically we should have won some games we lost. And should have lost a few we won. So I can see us losing some of these 3.

You on the other hand think unrealistically. So not surprised by your response.

5 of the 6 remaining games are essentially pick ems. I would be disappointed with 3-3 but would have a hard time calling it an unmitigated disaster. I think 3-3 gets us a 6 seed. 4-2 a 5 seed. 5-1 gives us a shot at a 4 seed but would probably need some help

Agree, come out of these 4-2 and I would count that as a "win".

If we win tonight, I'd agree. But tonight is a toss up. At PC is a toss up. SH is a toss up. @ SJU is a toss up. I'd assume we win 2/4 toss ups plus GT and @ DePaul. So give me 4-2, but 3-3 would not surprise at all.
