Nashville and Middle Tennessee, in general, are a melting pot of all states, it seems like.

I can go through a day and not hear a Southern accent. I miss that.

But progress is progress, I reckon'.

It really makes me wonder how high we can get if we win out.

That would be 28-5 (I think).

I wonder if that could crack the top 10.

Yea I would not count on that, Rhode Island has been 18th forever this season even after winning game after game...UK lost 4 straight games but if they win @Arkansas they will be back in poll fast...Highest MTSU can get would probably be 21st or 20th...

Privileged Conference schools getting zero votes now will jump us, most likely.

but these last 3 teams we play will have something to say about that

We can be knocked out by each and every team. I'm just glad we got 'em at home.

The real test will be seeing how we come out against UAB - both as a fan base (will the average MT fan show up for the game? can we sell out the arena?) as well as the team (will we be flat? will a ranking get to our heads?). Gotta keep working, keep winning, and keep moving forward!

Yeah, the SEC projected with 8 or so bids is spot on BS. Hopefully MTSU can make some moves in the tourney (of course your seeding will suck just because). Make the S16 and keep at it and maybe you will have the rep and fanbase of Gonzaga.

But don't sleep on Memphis. We're the 7th best team in the state:

Per RPI
1. UTK 11
2. MTSU 29
3. ETSU 60
4. Belmont 84
5. Vandy 118
6. Lipscomb 122
7. Memphis 129

That would be Texas also. The Texas economy has been strong for a good while, even when much of the rest of the nation was falling to pieces. So there have been a lot of businesses and families alike move here from other states all over the country, as well as the world.

It's about time. Selfishly, I want to see two CUSA teams make the tourney, but I only see one path for that to happen, and that's for Middle to look dominant here down the stretch, then get upset somehow in the CUSA tourney.

I think if Middle can keep this up and make that run, they could crack the top 20.

Congrats Blue Raiders! Quite a feat. Looking (but not too) forward to the re-match in M’boro and then potentially in Frisco....
