The irony here is that it wasn't the "tough" games that cost us. College of Charleston and Northwestern are the two that hurt the most. Colorado was in a tournament we're not going to skip out on those.
Gonzaga and Kentucky are the two with the best argument for changing, but losing to Gonzaga doesn't hurt anymore than demolishing Southern or whomever calls themselves the Delta Devils.
One could make a solid argument to not schedule a Northwestern, but College of Charleston was supposed to have been one of those patsies...I think they technically also part of the Charleston Classic.
This website saying we will be a #2 seed in the NIT (and no UT or Aggy in that field):
I think I agree for the most part. I guess the area for further exploration is the 'losing to Gonzaga doesn't hurt anymore than demolishing Southern' line of thinking. I agree with this and the committee constantly brings this up as an important criteria for seeding and bubble decisions, but it seems like they don't actually go with this when looking at bubble teams.
Honestly, I'm trying too hard to reconcile this year. We should have been able to win at least 40-50% of our close games and we didn't for all the reasons previously posted. So frustrating...

If we beat College of Charleston, Northwestern and Oklahoma (or Iowa state) at home I think we are in the Tournament as an 12 seed even with the first round exit in the Big 12 Tournament.
Didn't do that. Now we talk about the NIT. Which I do think we are in because I think we are a top 100 team but not a Top 50 team.
We win those three and we're around a 10 seed, our résumé would be very similar to ISU and OU
Baylor vs. Mercer would be interesting for several reasons.
Agreed. Could take our frustrations out on our previous presidente.
This guy has us a #1 seed.
