At this point, the AAC looks like a 3-bid league, with the potential to push up to 5 if USF and Temple keep winning.

I’d put Houston at a 2 seed, but really they’re going to be a 3 and are a tough out for anyone with their combination of defense, experience and balanced offense.

Two wins this week puts us in 4th. Dare to dream.

Two wins the following week (UCF and Temple) puts us squarely on the bubble. Two wins the week after that (Houston and UCF) and we're dancing. Slow down now, Glaser. I have to keep telling myself.  🙂

It could easily end as a two bid league.

That it could be with only Cincy and Houston getting in, but I think one of USF, UCF and Temple gets a third bid.

My high end projection of five teams is admittedly optimistic, but hey, our team currently sits at five so why not shoot for the stars!!!

Don't slow down! It's perfectly fine for fans with a really good team to think about dancing. That's the difference between college football (rigged against us) and college basketball. We are not crazy to think it's possible to go to the big tournament. In fact, that's what being a fan and supporter is all about! 🤘🤘🤘

Honestly, it's just nice to even be thinking about this in February. I don't have to tell you all that it's usually long over by now.

I still don't see it unless we essentially win out. I would think that we could lose to Houston or Cincy in the AAC final and still make it in the tournament if we were to win the rest of our games. 26-7 is a great record, but the non-conference slate was atrocious. Our best non-conference win was over Austin Peay (NET is 124).  Not many teams make it as an at-large with a non-conference SOS in the 200's. Our Memphis win was our best to date and they have a NET ranking of 70 (we are currently 71). The caveat to all of this is that this is the first season the selection committee will be using NET over pure RPI. That could benefit us, but they are still going to look at teams' records against the top 25, top 50, top 100, and so on.  

At this point, I just want any postseason play, whether it be NCAA, NIT, or CBI. I could realistically see us finishing the regular season anywhere from 7-2 to 3-6, with 5-4 or 6-3 the most likely. A 6-3 finish would have us at 21-9 heading into the conference tournament with either a 4 or 5 seed. At that point, I would hope that we would be a lock for the NIT, but, as has been previously mentioned, that will depend on how many of the smaller conference's regular season champs make it into the NCAA tournament. 

I was one of the "optimistic" ones about this year's squad and I had us in the 15-17 win range, so I definitely cannot complain with anything from here on out. What I would like to see from the rest of the season is improved ball control (I still can't believe we won a game with 30, THIRTY!, turnovers) and consistent free throw shooting.
