We're now listed pretty consistently as a 9 seed in the Bracketologists I follow. I know some on the board are still skeptical that we're in the field so I'll continue to watch the bubble.

Games of interest today(using Joe Lenardi's Bracketology):
Seed watch
VCU(8-seed) LOST TO RHODE ISLAND
UCF(9-seed) LOST BIG to Memphis
Minnesota(10-seed) BEAT Purdue
Washington(8-seed) BEAT Colorado
Seton Hall(10-seed) plays Marquette at 7:00
Iowa(8-seed) GOT DESTROYED BY Michigan
Arizona State(10-seed) plays Oregon at 9:30PM

Bubble Watch
Ohio State(last 4 byes) LOST TO Michigan State
Florida(last 4 in) BEAT LSU
Xavier(Next 4 out) LOST TO Villanova
Alabama(First 4 out) LOST BIG TO Kentucky
Temple(last 4 byes) plays Wichita State at 7:00
Iowa also lost BIG to Michigan.

Again, using Joe Lenardi's bracket.

Minnesota jumped us with their big win. We're now projected as a 10 seed.

Unless they win the conference tourney’s teams should not be in with a sub .500 conference record.

Today we'll be tracking 8, 9, 10, and 11 seeds(from both Joe Lenardi's and Jerry Palm's bracketologies) since we're currently a 8-10 seed.

Florida(11 seed) plays Auburn at 11:00
Minnesota(9 seed) play Michigan at 1:30
Seton Hall(9 seed) plays Villanova at 4:30
Washington(8 seed) plays Oregon at 8:30

Not many games, and not a lot of moving room. I'm still thinking we're a 9-10 seed. Beating(or losing to) San Diego State won't move us much. Even if the right teams lose too.

I think I want Washington to win to ensure the P12 is a one bid league. I’d rather a ten seed than an 8/9.

But if 8/9, I'd prefer Gonzaga than the other blue blood 1 seeds next. Only cause I just saw them lose, no deeper analysis than that.

The Aggies have punched their ticket. I'm not worried about the bubble anymore. And I'd still rather be an 8/9.

At this point in the process “should be in” doesn’t make a lot of sense. There are only two outcomes now, either a win and and auto bid or a loss and an at large. It shouldn’t be too hard for them to go out on a limb and predict that a USU loss would still lead to an at large bid.

It’s more that I just want the Pac-12 to be a one-bid league because I hate the Pac-12. :devil:

Not sure why we are tracking teams BELOW where we should end up. Why not track the teams projected to be 6, 7, and 8 seeds? I'm too lazy and too buzzed to do it myself.

What if we would have lost today? Those teams below us would have been of interest.

I guess I don't think about the world in terms of "what if we lost?" I think about the world in terms of "how high can we go?"

EDIT: I don't mean to be disrespectful. I appreciate that someone is making the effort to track anything that might affect the Ags and report on it since I am too lazy to do it myself. But when I check on this thread, I keep thinking I'm going to see how the teams projected to be right above us are doing, but I see the opposite.

You do not want that, a 10 seed would be better as they could make a run.

It is truly appreciated. Nice work trucking your tournament. I’ll never forget going to the big west tournament in 2005. My first tournament as an Aggie.
