Still not ranked, "#27"

Second on the others receiving votes list.

Not shocking. l think almost all of the ranked team losses last week were to other ranked teams.

Sweep the Washington schools and we might rocket up to #26 or #25.

Were ranked lower in the coaches poll last week, interesting to see what happens there later this afternoon.

Yeah sucks to not get a ranking, just gotta keep winning. Makes sense for UCLA to enter rankings, stupid that St Louis hangs around when they haven’t played since 12/23.

Funny story. My kid bet $50 on Kansas vs bailer to win $45. The spread was 8 1/2. With 1 minute to go, bailer was up 15 with a horrible FT (58%) shooter for KU at the line. His first shot rattled out, hit the backboard and dropped in. His second hit the back of the rim, bounced straight up and dropped in. bailer up by 13. Then with about 35 seconds left, KU steels the ball and makes the layup with 32 seconds left. bailer up 11. Then bailer dribbled the to a shot clock violation with 2 seconds. KU inbounded at half court to some scrub. He pump faked, the bailer defender flew by, and he fired a 45 foot shot off the glass and in at the buzzer. The announcer said, “Well, that will make some people very happy” while my kid was pumping is arm. He won $45, haha.

Anatomy of a "bad beat" for all the assholes who would put money behind supporting **** bailer.

What are y'all hoping for as an outcome for this season?

Sweet 16 is what I'm hoping for.

Not counting placement games (loser's bracket stuff), we've had one team win two NCAA tourney games in 1955.

I think S16 is a ceiling for the team, so yes, I hope for that too. But, just get a tournament win - I'd be happy with that.

0. all players and staff stay healthy
1. Pac-12 regular season championship (IMO, a bigger accomplishment than the tourney, but less meaningful)
2. Pac-12 tourney champ
3. finish the season being the team in the Pac 12 that never caused a game to be postponed or cancelled due to Covid
4. beat Gonzaga in the tourney en route to a Final 4 bid (I'm assuming that we'll be in the same region although with all games in Indy, geography could mean even less to the committee than usual. also, I root against private schools in general, and religious schools in particular)

Item 4 Regions are almost completely irrelevant, even pre-covid. The last several (10-15?) years the committee takes some level of consideration for travel in the first two rounds, and they also try to put the number 1 seed in the region that makes the most sense geographically (Gonzaga would definitely be the 1 in the West this year), but aside from that, your geographical location has NO relevance to what region you get put in.

Item 1 is going to be very difficult to accomplish too, just because UCLA is two games up with a win in hand already. They're not gonna fall apart. But I really like it as an ultimate goal.

The committee said they're doing away with geography for seeding, and will only go away from snaking through the seeding lines to avoid in conference matchups.

A regular season championship would be huge, and I agree that it's a bigger accomplishment.

Definitely a Tournament bid. Definitely a first round win. Really want the Sweet 16. After that a steaming bowl of gravy.

This sucks, 2nd round games on a Monday and the Elite 8 on Monday and Tuesday? Oh well, at least there'll be a tournament this year

By cranking through it in 14 days, it is much less likely someone brings Covid to the arena and knocks an opposing team that beats them out of the tournament in the next round.

But they're only cutting off 2 days, it's not like they're cutting off a week or something. In that case they could've just dropped the first four which pretty much everyone agrees is dumb anyway and had this same timeline.

Dropped to 17 in the NET and 17 in KenPom. It's safe to say a regular season Pac 12 championship is no longer possible. Top 4 seed in Pac 12 Tourney is still very much in the mix. Also still a lock to make the tournament as of now. Still a horrible loss but not one that gets us anywhere near the bubble.
