By this point we probably all know that our Billikens are in the middle or back on the bubble. Since January and the first half of conference play is nearing its end I thought I’d make a post showing

This weekend's bubbles games rooting guide.  I'm going to focus on the 21 teams on the bubble per Lunardi's last Bracket Math twitter post from yesterday (3/4) plus UCLA: IN (# is Lunardi's seed

Houston taking care of Memphis. Though it ended as a fairly close game, hopefully enough to push us ahead of Memphis. Also need Tulsa to beat witchita state later today

I really don’t understand why the bracketogists seem to ignore the NET. UCLA is 75, Texas 68, Indiana 60.... yet all considered ahead of us

The Internet business is about eyeballs.  Those three schools have a huge amount of fans.  You'll notice in the last 48 hours before Selection Sunday, the final at-large selections by bracketologists will begin to reflect reality.  Until then, they will hunt for clicks by deluded fanbases.  It happens every year.

To me, I think it’s a collective opinion that the NET isn’t highly valued by the committee. 

It used to be BCS, now it’s Power 5.

The NET can be used to help the Power 5, the NET can be ignored to help the Power 5, or both, whichever helps transfer more at large bids to the Power 5.

Archie Miller went from trying to avoid Fordham to becoming Fordham.

Have we touched on UNI yet? They have some decent wins (@ Colorado, South Carolina) but got ran by Drake in the tournament.  If the Mo Valley gets 2 and we get 1 I’ll puke.

We just need to win the A-10 Tourney and take all the guess work out. Anything less will mean we aren't getting in the Big Dance this year!

That was a different Dayton team.

How, exactly, was that Dayton team different than the current Dayton team? I’d love to hear your explanation. Whereas there are obvious differences between the SLU team that lost twice to Dayton and the current SLU team. Like Hargrove becoming a key contributor on offense and defense. The emergence of Perkins. Significantly better shooting from the perimeter to give Has and J-Good more space. The better understanding and execution of defensive schemes.

They don't ignore NET. They put it context of other things. Clearly Minnesota can't be a tourney team despite a NET of 47.

And this is a much better Bills team than It was a few weeks ago.

Something clicked together within TeamBlue over the last few games. I do not know that whatever it is can be defined. It could be an enlarged level of confidence or determination. Whatever it is, it is good for us.

Beating Dayton is the only ticket to the NCAAs and I don't see it happening.

A better name for you would be Darkton.

You refused to get on the GDT while the game was underway and be excited for the team your supposed to be a fan of.

You only want to post negativity then fans bad or troll post you.

I thought you were tired about fans thinking SLU is the little engine that could?

Both games were close and SLU only got beat by a buzzer beater.  SLU is on a roll so most fans that really know this team see it happening.

Liberty winning today means we don’t have to worry about them getting a at large bid they don’t deserve.  Memphis losing helps.  All and all a good 48 hours for SLU’s at large chances.

I see Collins fighting through screens for one thing. Not getting picked off.
