Do you all think with this win that the Buffs are in even with the UA loss? What if its a real bad loss?
Probably, unless one of the lower PAc-12 teams wins the tourney. I can't see the PAc-12 getting more than 5 bids so root for the favorites.
Doesn't work like that. They evaluate each team individually based on their schedule and how they played against that schedule, not how many bids a conference "deserves". We're in.
It absolutely can work like that. If ASU were to win the tourney it could very well hurt us. I believe we are in but a lower seed team winning, especially one that beat us twice, can change that equation.
Agree w/ VT. Just like CU last year winning the tourney. Every team who isn't expected to win their tourney, knocks someone else out. I'd say it's 65/35 even w/ the win. ASU goes on a run, i dunno, it's not like it's mathmaticians figuring it out. it's douches at OSU saying and on the committee. Besides, the 16, 15, 14 seeds seem to be reserved for really obscure small schools. Would love to have a 16 seed...that'd be awesome.

It only hurts us as much as someone like Wyoming winning the MWC tournament does in that it's one less spot in the field. They don't take teams who they would rate as a 10 seed irrespective of conference affiliation and then say "oh, that conference doesn't deserve 6 teams so that team is out". Conference affiliation has zero impact on who gets in the tournament beyond the teams in your conference being on your schedule.
Those are teams who auto-qualify. The way it works is that all of the conference champions (except the Great West) get one automatic bid. Then the rest of the field is made up of the best non league champs. After those 68 are selected they are ranked by the committee. Usually there are 12-16 conference champs who are decided to be ranked lower than the last at large team. That's why you see no name schools in the bottom seeds.
not disagreeing but if a team wins their tourney who otherwise weren't going to make it in the field, that pushes back others that were slated to make the tourney.
Absolutely. My point was that it would only take 1 spot away and wouldn't hurt us any more than someone like Wyoming winning the MWC would.
