Quick Thoughts as Texas falls to Iowa State


 Share

Recommended Posts

Wow, Auburn beats LSU. The SEC is a $#@! show. 

 

LSU was a last 4 bye in Lunardi's bracket. They will be headed to Dayton at best now. They have some nice wins but some horrible losses.....won't even be a top 50 RPI team. Interesting resume. That also means A&M has 0 RPI top 50 wins on the year. A&M was already done but that puts the end of any discussion of them making the tournament.

 

Late that day after Auburn beat A&M, a sports radio show mentioned Auburn won just 4 SEC games all year, prior to the tournament.

Texas is getting so much help. 

Boise State with a bad loss to Wyoming. That might very well push Texas ahead of Boise State. Boise State only has 4 top 100 RPI wins and their RPI will be around 50. They were an 11 seed in a lot of the brackets before this loss. 

Arizona beats UCLA. 

As long as there aren't multiple bid thieves we should be in the tournament. 

Texas got some RPI help tonight from UCONN too. Now we just have to hope they don't steal a bid. Pretty incredible how much help we are getting with all these bubble teams.

Conferences left with the potential to steal bids. 
 
Southland: SFA vs Sam Houston in the conference finals. If SFA loses they might get an at large bid, but that's probably unlikely. It would be best if SFA just wins the tournament so that's not a possibility. 

Mountain West: Wyoming will play the winner of San Diego State/Colorado State in the finals. We need San Diego State/Colorado State to win that game. 


A10-Davidson, VCU, Dayton and Rhode Island in the semis. Just need Rhode Island to lose. 


AAC-Temple, SMU, UCONN and Tulsa in the semifinals. We need Temple or SMU to win the conference tournament. 

SEC-Kentucky, Auburn, Arkansas, and looking like Georgia in the semis. Need Auburn to lose. 


IMO the AAC is the only conference where there will be a bid thief. Maybe in the Mountain West.

So ISU beats Texas on a buzzer beater to prevent OT, having not led the whole game til the winning shot.

Then beats OU by the same 2-pt margin and almost the same score at 67-65, with OU missing a final shot attempt.

ISU was down 11 early in that game.

 

Will be interesting if ISU can stymie Kansas and win the tournament. Texas is not really that bad but can't muster the mental focus or get past coaching decisions late in a game.

 

104.9 FM (Austin) was beside themselves all day today over Miles Turner not playing (I think the final 10 minutes) and making one of two shots the whole game in limited play. What's with that? With a 10 pt lead you'd think definitely have him in the game blocking shots if nothing else. Believe also Texas did not make a field goal the final 7 minutes. Maybe I mis-heard that.

Good point, david.

 

Like I said earlier, I think Texas is a team with the potential to hang with just about anybody, so I expect a run to the sweet 16, but does it have mental focus to actually win a tournament game that is tight in the last minute?

 

I sort of don't think so, but if it does manage to pull out a game late, their confidence could return very quickly and a sort of Cinderella story might emerge.

 

Wouldn't that be fun?

 

And withBarnes saving his job at the 11th hour (again), it would be fun to watch all the nellies' frustration levels peg out

If ya'll want to watch a beat down put it on the Auburn and Kentucky game in about 10 minutes. Auburn has absolutely no size to begin with and they just suspended their only big guy in Bowers. They are now starting a walk on in his place. Kentucky may win this by 40. 

 

The last bid thief in the SEC will be eliminated soon.

What did Bowers do to get suspended? Break curfew?
