If BU runs the table the rest of the way in conference, they would get an at large bid.
With all due respect, you're crazypants if you think this is a possibility.

Power conference teams can't get an at-large bid with a non-con SoS in the 300s. If they can't, we sure as heck can't.

Re: The Valley

The non-con put us on the 15 line last year. The 4 Q4 losses ALSO put us on the 15 line last year. Both can be true. If we post a non-con SoS in the 225 range, and still have those 4 losses, we're on the 14 line. If we post no Q4 losses, but keep the same SoS, we're on the 14 line. Once we lost the ...

Re: UNI

Big resume game. Last legitimate chance at a signature win till March. A real threat that the 14 line will be our ceiling if we don't win.

Re: Bracketology 2019-20

Illini seeded 9th in Lunardi's updated Bracketology facing Marquette in the 1st round in Spokane. And if they win, then they would face the 1 seed Gonzaga in a road contest in Spokane. TAS, I know I've asked this before, but this is allowed to happen in Gonzaga's case since they aren't the host of ...

Re: Bracketology 2019-20

TAS, with the Illini at 9-4 heading into conference play (aside from the two games already played), what does Illinois have to do between now and March to have a realistic shot at playing in the NCAA tournament? I did see they're currently ranked at 43 on KenPom. They might need no more than 10-10....

Re: Opponents thread

As it apparently is recently for every team in the Valley. Such is the life of a one-bid conference. The only exception might be if UNI dominates the Valley with only 1-2 losses but loses in the MVC Tournament. I think if that happened they'd have a high likelihood of an at-large bid.

Re: Opponents thread

It can be ignored. Because it’s irrelevant. I really don't wanna be on the 15 line this year Losing at home to the 301 ranked team, losing 14 total games with 6 at home were much bigger factors than the non-conference strength of schedule. Win v. EIU and BU is a 14 seed. Go better than 9-9 in confe...

Re: 2020 Paradise Jam

It's a good tournament IF you recognize that you need signature win chances outside of this tournament on the schedule. Not 1, multiple. Right. However these exempt tournaments are a mid-major’s opportunity for what the committee sees as signature wins. And I’m not sure there is even one opportunit...

Anyone that thinks a road win against anyone of substance is doable without Eli might be kidding themselves.

Assuming this one is a bad loss?
Not the worst loss, but an at-large profile hamstrung by a bad SoS probably couldn't afford it.
