He got arrested.They should throw the book at him and part of his sentence should be that he's not allowed to attend any paid sporting events for at least 5 years.
Tonight's win moves our RPI up to 109. A win against Minnesota will move it to 102. If we get another win in the B1G, I would expect it to put somewhere around 95-98.
Last year St. Johns was the last at-large NIT bid with an RPI of 94 and a record of 16-15 with 10 automatic bids. Just wanted to give people an idea for the NIT-bubble watch.
We are on the verge, I'm telling you. Guys get better (front court), mistakes can be corrected. The only thing *really* missing is a three-point shooter.
If we beat Minnesota, Iowa beats Illinois, and UM beats Indiana, then we'll be in a 3 way tie with Minnesota, Indiana, and us for 7,8, and 9. In that case, Minnesota would win the 3-way tie breaker putting them as the 7 seed. Indiana would win the head to head tiebreaker against us, so we would end up as the 9 seed playing 8 seed Indiana.
Some of it was just a matter of luck in my opinion. Play in enough close games and you're going to win some and lose some. Trade the improbable Indiana game and the first OSU game for two of the close ones we lost earlier in the league play and it comes out as a wash.
I'm going to go back through the games in the next few weeks and try to actually chart our efficiency stats and some other stuff to see if anything reveals itself, but overall I don't know how much differently we're playing. Still feels like we under-perform most nights relative to the talent on the floor, but if you told me 7-11 was our final league record before the season I'd say we probably had an okay season. I just would have guessed we had a better OOC run of things also, and been squarely in the NIT conversation instead of the CBI.
Let's play spoiler on Sunday like Iowa did to us in 08/09.The Barn will be tough, especially with Minnehaha needing that win. So all the pressure's on them, which I like.
It'll be interesting to see how Minny plays as they appear to be falling off the bubble.
I feel like we have to deal with this anytime NW has anything remotely resembling a decent football or basketball team. A lot of,"This is finally the year for Northwestern!!!" stuff from the major sports outlets. It really annoys me.
At times in the past I've found it hard to watch our team but man I don't remember it ever being as bad as Northwestern is right now. These guys are terrible.
And earlier this year, the guys on the BTN spent nearly an entire halftime show during a PSU game talking about whether this was the year that NW finally makes the tourney.
As we've seen so far, no lead is safe for PSU.
So only being up 17 against a team that made only 6 FGs in the first half isn't a reason to coast through the 2nd half
