I will be pissed if MTSU gets left out
Borderline top 25 team. Borderline top 25 RPI. Proven track record of NCAA tourney success the last few years.

When you start stacking their resume with other borderline teams, they got to make it, right?

Who are the other borderline teams? Arizona State, Alabama, Norte Dame?

Give me one reason why they should, and one reason why not.

You only need one reason. Not a p5. They will not make it.

It's a weak bubble but I think they might have needed at least one win in the tourney.

Finishing the year with 2 losses to 100+ rpi teams will get you off the bubble every single time. High NIT seed though

Reasons they should not make it: folded down the stretch, lost last two.

Reasons they should: 4-6 vs RPI top 100 not terrible, recent history of good showings in NCAA tourney.

Marshall's RPI now sits at 99, and we should continue to climb. So those losses not as bad as this So Miss loss.

What you have done in recent seasons is supposed to have no bearing on the current season.

RE: I will be pissed if MTSU gets left out
The things these committees generally look at:

How you played in your last 10. That's a bad mark

Record against RPI top 50. Currently 1-3, but severely need WKU to crack top 50, then they'll show as 3-3. That's pretty decent.

So I think when the dust settles, we'll see Middle fall in the low 30's RPI with 3 top 50 wins.

I think they make it to a play-in game simply because the analytics make sense from and RPI and W/L perspective. That coupled with historically the committee has put at least 1 non power conference team in the play-in games since inception of the Dayton games.

Yes, but these are humans who have their own bias. So all it takes is for someone to bang the table for or against Middle. That Michigan State upset is sure to still be in the back of at least one committee members mind.

I hope but I fear they might get pushed to the first four out

RE: I will be pissed if MTSU gets left out
MTSU has owned ODU at every opportunity in major sports since we joined CUSA. With that said, I'd really hope they are still alive. Kermit has put together another terrific team this year that can win in the NCAAs. However, losing in the quarterfinals of a G5 basketball tourney is RARELY the pathway for at at-large to the big dance. I truly hope they get a fair look, but my gut says the committee will pass.

I was really hoping that this tourney would be the ultimate payback tour. MT avenge two losses to Marshall, ODU pays back WKU for two losses then ODU gets the ultimate payback for the last (8, 9?) losses and wins the title against Middle.

Well Porter's got to eat, it might as well be Penava's lunch.

Porter's a beast. MU's had no answer for him all yr. and I doubt if they meet again that things will magically change.

RE: I will be pissed if MTSU gets left out
Pissed if they don’t make it? Hell.....I’ll be thrilled if they don’t make it. And please for the love of Jobu don’t waste your keystrokes telling me good for conference blah blah mufhfokcing blah. Don’t wanna hear it. Hope they’re left out and lose first NIT game.

But I think they’ll sneak in. Just like they did in the Sun Belt when they let the Saint Mary’s Aussies beat the living dogggshit out of them. I think the Meesheegan State win does play into it.
