    Agree completely! The NCAA at large talk ended after the home loss to Providence.

    Heck, Butler has “work to do” just to make the NIT.

    Agree, they both have only 3 Q1 wins and are above 70 in the NET. No chance either gets in unless they run the table in the BET.

    My bubble watch (which is coming out later today) has Butler, Xavier, and Georgetown all in the “probably needs to make the BET title game” category. If butler makes the title game, odds are reasonably high that they get in.

    I'm always wearing my Butler goggles, but with the Bubble as tenuous as it is, should Butler win tomorrow, beat providence again (assuming 7 seed) & beat Marquette (long-shot), we are on the bubble. This is the case with many Bubble teams in the big conferences, but looking at just the BE, we can assume no less than 4 teams will be in and most likely 5.
    BE bunched in the middle will eat up on each other over the next 3 games, except for Creighton. Below is based on who will be favored for projected matchups.
    Creighton likely scenario 2-1 or 1-1. 2-1 should get them in, does 18-14?
    SH 0-2 or 2-1. Does 17-14 get them in?
    Georgetown 1-2, 0-2. Based on metrics, does 19-13 or 18-14 get them in? They are already on the outside looking in.
    X and St. Johns could have a back to back. If X goes 0-2 or 16-16, they are out. Does 1-1 or 2-1 move the needle in their favor?
    St. Johns is a weird scenario. Should they lose to X @ X and then again to X or Creighton @ MSG (0-2), their current projected seed of 10-11 drops to 11-12 or bubble?
    Per my prior scenario, Butler finishes 19-15 with 1 marquee win over Marquette and are we close to the other 5 BE resumes? If we lose in the BE Championship to Nova, at 20-15, we are in. Will this happen? Hell no, we've been so inconsistent. But, the point of us having to win the BE tourney to get in is not IMO correct.
    FYI, this model could be done with all the big conferences. There are a lot of bubble teams, that if they bounce early or going to have an uphill battle.

    I can't believe this conversation is still a thing.

    Yeah, getting a win tomorrow will be difficult enough.

    Was the only one I had access to at the time. I agree he isn’t usually accurate.

    @lukasharkins do you have any predictions before tomorrow?

    Jorgensen shooting from 30' without a pass or a reversal. Tucker ditto although not from 30, Baldwin? Not sure. Maybe he's thinks he's the only one who can get a shot at a crucial time but my God, he NEVER passes once he starts his move to the basket.

    Lots of people are going to be picking Murray State to upset Marquette in the 5/12.

    Marquette has struggled lately as has Marcus Howard
