Agree on the Big 12 eating itself. As I said yesterday 7 bids is most likely but it's not impossible to see WVU, Kansas State, and one of ISU/TCU playing themselves out (along with Oklahoma State).thanks for posting....the 3 games I am watching the most..
ISU at TCU....ISU has the quality wins but this freefall could be something else. TCU has a rough schedule ahead. I think one of these schools may play their way out of the tournament by Big 12 tourney time.
Utah St at San Diego State...SDSt is one of the schools RU is competing with on the cut line. Its a pedestrian resume without bad losses, if they can take a few losses down the stretches it will dampen their chances
Wake Forest at Duke.....Deacons are no sure thing. They will need quality wins at some point, this would be worth 2, if they dont get it, there are not many chances
Agree on San Diego State. This is the kind of game that can sneakily make or break a resume especially for a MWC team. Can that conference get 4 bids? It's looking decent but they need the top 4 to separate.
With Wake Forest... they just need to take care of business at home. 23-8 does the trick, although I'll be betting against them in the tournament. They're 3-0 in OT. The only power schools they've beaten outside the ACC are Oregon State (trash) and Northwestern (kinda trash, and this was at home and in OT). Their resume is almost entirely beating up the dreck that is the bottom of the ACC. But with no horrific losses they'll squeak in. But I don't think they're a good team.
