Coogs starting out at #68 with 0 Q1/Q2 wins so far. South Carolina was Q3.
South Carolina will be a Q2.
So right now we’re a bubble team. That seems accurate.
Bubble out at this point. Obviously plenty of season to work ourselves back in though.
Yeah. We’d almost certainly not make the field if it was selected today. It would be huge if we can end up drawing Washington in this Hawaii tournament and get a win (and of course take care of business before then).
Until these guys have their moment of enlightenment, I’m nervous to play anyone with a pulse. It’s so frustrating because the talent is clearly there.
Jumped up to #51 after the win over UTEP.
We need to be top four in the AAC, and I think we will make it. Memphis, Cincy, and Wichita State all look like locks right now.
Not sure Cincy is a lock for anything.
Yeah. We’re more of a lock than they are.
I feel pretty confident in saying that we have already beaten two tourney teams. UTEP is winning CUSA. One of Texas State or UT Arlington are winning the Sun Belt. Sweep our games in Hawaii and I will be very happy with our OOC performance.
There are no “locks” in December.
UTEP probably has the most talent in CUSA but they are far from a 100% lock to win their tourney (Western Kentucky is 7-3 with a win over Arkansas as 1 comparison point). It’s also far from a 100% lock that Texas State or UTA wins the Sun Belt tourney, especially considering that both are currently 0-1 in conference play!
And in any event, beating a tourney winner for an auto-bid only league is nice, but also not a huge resume builder. If we win the Hawaii tourney and notch a win over Washington that will be a solid OOC, though. That TJ Haws shot somehow going in is unfortunate.
Tulane losing to Akron today doesn’t help the league.
The loss may not be that bad. Akron has lost only two games…@West Virginia (who is AP #25 now) and @Louisville (who was #2 at that time). Akron is a good team and probably not a bad 1 point loss for Tulane. Time will tell, though.
Wichita State looks very good.
USF up on Fla St 57-54 with 4:07 left
Is USF on TV?
Correction FS2 if you have it
