26-7. Good RPI 38. Very Good. SOS 114. Not Good. 14-4 in the MVC. OK Co-Champs of the Valley. Good. Record. Top 50 - 2-0. Not bad but not enough. 8-4 on the road. Very good. 1 loss on a nuetral floor vs. 4 wins. Ok.
With all of that...you would think I would say they are a lock. However, with mid-major teams, you CAN NOT give the committee a reason to keep you out. With the BCS schools, they look for a reasons to keep them in. Mid-majors don't get that luxury. Getting blasted in the semi-finals of the MVC tourney could be that reason that keeps CU out of the tournament.
The question will now be how many of the 34 at large spots are available after this weekend. Mid-major 1 bid leagues need to won by the favorite...all of them. I predict the Jays will be 1 of 4 or 5 teams that will be up for a 1 or 2 bids in the field. The loss to Illinois St. was U-G-L-Y but maybe in 10 days the affect will wear off. I don't know though....73-49 is pretty striking.
7 losses. 2 to Ill St. Ark. Little Rock. @ Wichita. Drake.....
26 wins. Dayton, New Mexico @ St Joe's, @ UNI, 9 straight win streak- a 11 gamer as well......
That top line is heavier than the bottom one unfortunately. Prediction: Last 4 out but not dead yet.
UPDATE FROM THE MVC:: Get this!!
ON A HAPPIER NOTE: Check my Mom!!
That's an article in the Boston Globe about what my mother does!!! Very Proud of her today!
