It's a big who knows, but does present an interesting scenario.  The problem is that just about all other quality teams will be in their own tourney during this new A10 window.  You are looking primarily at A10 teams or MVC teams or m a y b e an early out West Coast team (BYU?) being available.  Slim pickings.

 

 

From Wednesday to Sunday of that week these are the top 100 NET teams who have tournaments that will be over:

Liberty, the A10 teams not in the final, Winthrop, Wright St., Loyola, Drake, Missouri St., Belmont, UNC Greensboro, BYU, St. Mary's and Gonzaga. Assuming two top 100 A10 teams reach the final and dropping Gonzaga, that gives you 17 potential match ups that could help the teams NET rating and resume to varying degrees depending on location.  If you go on the road for the game it gives you even more options to pick up a Q2 win.

Hey that is some nice research.  I don't know if 17 is the right number or not, but it doesn't matter for this discussion.  Of Loyola, Drake and MO State, one will already have a bid, and MO State - if not the winner -  has no chance at at At Large.  But a MO Valley team would present the easiest logistics. Drake sitting at 34 today might consider such a game if they get bounced early.  The next level for me would be St. B or VCU - if either are out of the A10 final.  

Wouldn't BYU be a nice game.  But at a NET of 22, they should be safely in unless they lose to Portland.  No reason to 'gamble' with he 50th ranked NET team.

I think fans are worrying a little too much about NET rankings. Even if we have a NET in the 30's we lack Q1 wins. Hate to use the example but look at mizzou.  They have a terrible net, but are safety in due to the 6 Q1 wins.

I disagree that the NET ranking doesn’t/won’t matter, but I agree with your overarching point that NET shouldn’t be our primary concern at this point. Essentially, we should win the A10 tournament if we get hot enough to get back on the bubble. Unlikely at this point, but the path to an automatic bid is very similar to an at-large bid (win a lot of games).

Well, here is one willing opponent.

-that's funny about Richmond wanting to play that week

-wouldn't the ideal scenario for games that week be to play an out of conf opponent so as to not cannibalize a fellow A10 member?

As @brianstlpointed out, there aren't a lot of viable candidates.  If Richmond isn't in the A10 tourney final game, they won't get in without another signature win.

I don’t feel bad for Richmond at all. they decided to schedule a D3 opponent when there were plenty of D1 opponents available

Yes, and?  I kind of wish we had played a D3 team coming back rather than Dayton.

Michigan State might’ve stolen a bid tonight .. Wins over Illinois and now Ohio State

Michigan State still has work to do and they have a tough road ahead. They likely need to win 2 or 3 more games. @ Maryland, vs. Indiana, @ Michigan, vs. Michigan, Big Ten Tourney. Things could fall apart quickly.
