What do we root for?


#1

Wichita just beat cincy meaning the 1 seed is up for grabs in the conference tourney

i was rooting for that at first but after thinking about it, the 1 seed means we can only play cincy or wichita once, only 1 resume builder (tulsa likely to finish 4th)

our bid to the tourney is basically secure… (GO COOGS!! crazy to say that)

so whats ore important?

  • a higher aac seed for a higher chance to win the conference tourney to claim the conference tourney championship
  • take a 2/3 seed for a better resume boost to get a better seed in the ncaa tournament and a better chance to advance

note: we can still win the regular season title on a 2 or 3 seed

If we win out and Cincy beats Wichita State, we get a 2 seed. About the only difference between a 2 seed and a 3 seed is prestige. On the other hand, in my opinion there is a huge difference between a 8 seed and 7 seed in the big tourney. Us winning out and then making it to the semi-finals, should be able to score us a 7th seed or even a 6th.

Is this website not credible? It says a 4 or 5 is most likely, and almost no chance of a 7 or 8.

Wichita barely beat temple, barely beat tulsa.lost to temple…they still have @ucf and @smu… if wichita loses 1 and beats cincy we get the 1 seed


#5

that site isnt credible …itt had us at a 6 seed before beating cincy when almost everyone had us at best a 10 seed

if you are looking for a realistic projection of seeding use bracket matrix (a super composite of dozens of bracketology)

The flaw in that logic is that you see Wichita State as a good enough team to be Cincy twice but still struggling enough to lose @UCF or @SMU. It can happen but I’m sure our team is more focused on our performance and not Wichita’s.

wichita is a 3 point shooting team…hot and cold is their specialty
they needed a 16pt comback to barely beat temple 3 days ago…the temple we just demolished…

smu already beat them @wsu


#8

What do we root for?

to win the rest of our games. We’re becoming the team to beat in the AAC.

it would help to know how the seeding would work if we all tie for first.


#10

record vs tying teams

record vs next place team

a 3 way tie, wsu gets 1 seed…
a 2 way tie between us and cincy, with cincys 3rd loss to WSU… we get the 1st seed
