to help AU’s chances GREATLY to get to the BIG dance!
Georgetown – if they make a run in the Big East and win 3-4 games, they could still get in. If they go out in Rd. 1 or 2, 17-15 does not get them in. Go Johnnies!!
South Carolina – USC has just 1 win over RPI top 50. If they were to go out against MSU in Rd. 2 (their 1st tourney game), our resume could very quickly be better than theirs – 21-9 but they have just the #95 schedule according to RPI.
Virginia Tech – Va Tech/Miami looks like an elimination game, but Miami’s record and RPI is better than VaTech so we can pass Tech more easily. Go Canes!
California – If they get blown out by USC in Rd. 1 of the PAC 10 tourney, we could jump them on the Big Dance board.
Maryland – we can’t have the Terps making an ACC run into the semi’s because wins over NCState and Duke would put them in the tourney. Of course, none of this matters if we don’t beat UF. If we get UF and beat them in our first SEC tourney game, we still need some help but 3 RPI top 50 wins and 22-11 in the SEC probably gets us in – some help from those 5 teams makes it that much easier.
I say lets just win the SEC tournament and take our bid!! WDE!
