    This Oklahoma thing is just killing me. There oughta be a law...I just sayin.

    Though quietly I am rooting for KU to get a 1 seed, because if they couldn't be the first 1 seed to lost to a 16 seed (Virginia), they would most assuredly find a way to become the second 1 seed to lose to a 16. That league is like a balloon filled with hot air waiting to pop.

      I think it is fair, most (if not all) of their losses are good losses. If below .500 conference play teams do not belong in the tournament, you saying that Big 12 teams with a KenPom below 31 do not belong. +17.05 is the expected AdjEM of a team expected to go .500 in the Big 12.

      Who here wouldn't be stunned to see KU get put in the Midwest region, setting the Jayhawks up to have defacto home games at Sprint if they can manage to make the second weekend?

          I still cannot believe Lunardi has OU as a 10 seed. He would have to assume they would do no better than they have to this point and most likely not make the semi-finals of the conference tourney. It's a total disgrace to the format of the tournament to honor a team that loses 2 out of every 3 conference games by rewarding them with the opportunity to do what they've done so many times before and not allow a winning non-P5 school the opportunity to do something they have had fewer chances at. Rich get richer is the only good answer to this if the committee goes along with this travesty.

            I think it's interesting that Jans' NMSU team from the lowly WAC is projected as a 12 seed, while Loyola is a projected 15 seed. Fifteen seed.

            I feel like we caught the last lifeboat off the RMS Valley.

            A 15 seed?? Holy crap, that's bad. Like REALLY bad.

            I was told by Illinois State fans that once we left the conference was gonna be just fine and that the void would be filled by them.

            Redturds are playing Thursday night LOL

            A 15 seed? LOL

              Go back and look at some of their early season predictions. 28-3 and 27-4 we're talked about a lot. Their in-game threads morph right into who will be the next coach

              First things first, guys -- let's win one game and then go from there. ECU isn't imposing, but they're better than Tulane.

                Lets hope we beat ECU then beat Temple and Memphis loses in their first game in the AAC tourney. Give us a chance to take Temples 11 seed spot! I'd love that! Then Houston and Cincy can lose in their 1st games. If all the cards fall right we got a chance. Even though its a small chance. We'd have to win it all in the AAC tourney. Its March... we can all pray for some MADNESS right? Madness that goes in the Shockers favor!

              TCU loses to Okie St and West Virginia in their last 10 and still gets a bid with an 11 seed?

              makes sense.

                Just as much as having St Johns safely in after falling to 1 game out of last place and behind 3 teams that he has out in the Big Least.

                  At work— is Texas projected in after the loss to TCU? Geez, how bad has Shaka been? 3G looking sage-like not hightailing for Austin.

                    I think Marshall is a better coach than Shaka. Obviously I’m very glad he didn’t leave Wichita State but I think he would’ve done well at Texas.

                    But then again we were told he’s Peter principled himself in the AAC so it probably would’ve been even worse in the Big 12-11.
