Right now, Marquette should be big fans of anyone playing against Iowa State, Baylor, and Kentucky. Those are the only teams that could catch us for a 2-seed. And if Kentucky did pass us, they go to Indy.

Thx Brew.

Baylor and Iowa State playing each other tonight I assume helps us because one will lose, so they both can't jump us?

Also, St. Johns at 32 NET means a good game against UConn could move them to a Q1 home win for MU. Big Johnnies fan today for multiple reasons

Gonna need the Johnnies to move to Q1 because Texas is about to fall out.

The Athletic's latest bracketology - which was before yesterday's games - had us as the 3-seed in the West, opening in Indy against Charleston and then playing the winner of St. Mary's-Texas A&M. The top two seeds are Tennessee and Arizona.

I find myself hoping that most of the above doesn't end up being the case.

Maybe, we'll see.

Both Utah St and Colorado St are dogs tonight, if they don't cover they won't move up. StJ moving up would be fine. FAU might be a problem if they run up the score a few times and win the American tourney. Nevada is done. Florida is a dog tonight, and once you get past them teams are either done or would have too much ground to make up. At least it gives us rooting interests in the late games. Go SDSU and New Mexico.
I'll stick with my opinion on Gold.  He'll be in foul trouble within the first eight minutes.

Well I should say Texas will fall out if the Johnnies do move in.

Texas has a 2 spot buffer. That would be 1.

Would hit a hell of a betting parlay if everything else went perfect behind them. And the teams in front of Texas currently I dont think can go behind them barring a 30 pt loss or something

Rooting for Tennessee right now to stay in the bracket as the last line of defense against Kentucky making a charge to the SEC title and a possible spot in Indy.

Agreed.  I don't really care which one is top 30 as long as one of them ends up there.

JBR Bracketology has us “locked in” as a 2 seed, says tonight’s Baylor/Iowa St game is for the final #2.

Tennessee apparently decided to skip the SEC tournament, concede the #1 seed, and rest up for the NCAA.

I agree.  The two remaining two seeds were the winner of Creighton Marquette and Iowa St Baylor.

Cmon, there's got to be someone out there like me clinging to the irrational hope for a 1 seed. Right!

I know, I know....1 seed no matta, it's mathematically impossible, who cares, just win...yada, yada, yada....but wouldn't that be cool!

So AZ, Tenn, UNC, Iowa St, lose, lose, lose, lose...and MU WIN, WIN... and committee see Kolek back as a renewed team.  1 seed baby!!!

A one-seed is a distinct advantage over a two.

A two is little advantage over a three.

Marquette's not getting a one.

Nat King COLE. TN loses, AZ loses, UNC loses. We stomp UCONN with Tyler scoring 30 in his return. Grab the 1 seed. Win 6 more. So it is written.

Is Tennessee far enough ahead of MU that their result really doesn't matter? I understand that we're not going to get a 1, but might Tenn drop below MU to provide a bit more breathing room at the 2? Or do they stay ahead of us no matter their result?

With Dayton bowing out yesterady we have at least one bid theif this season out of the A10. It doesn't matter to Marquette this season but I've always found myself cheering for bid theifs. Still four more possibles beyond the A10:

AAC: Anyone besides FAU
ACC: NC State
B1G: Ohio State or Indiana
P12: Oregon
TAMU

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

Ohio St winning the B1G would be an incredible story after firing the coach midseason.

The non-COLE rooting guide for tonight

MISS_ST v. TENN
UCONN v. SJU
PITT v. UNC
BUZZZZZZZ v. UK
OREGON v.  ZONA
BAYLOR v. ISU

Worst thing that's happened to MU so far in Championship week is Prov denying us another Q1A win.

Disagree on Uconn over SJU.

If SJU beats Uconn they will move top 30 giving us another Q1 win. Then if we beat Prov

While beating Uconn is a wayyyyyyyy better win. SJU is a much much much much more possible win.

A SJU win tonight could wind up giving us 2 more Q1s

Interesting Take...I'm tracking with 1SE and I would rather beat UConn as a 1-seed stamp-of-approval.... but this is interesting.

Anybody who believes a Kolek-less Marquette is incapable of beating UConn by 20 points to steal a 1 seed is full of Cole Slaw. Should be easy peasy.
