NIT Bracketology

The Bracket Project Blog: Bracket - February 20

Currently projected as a 7 seed in the NIT.

Unfortunately, a 7 seed means a slim-to-none chance of any games at TBA. I'd at least like a 6 seed so we'd possibly get a 2nd round game at home.

So, some of us are still holding on to faint NCAA hopes, and we're only projected as a 7 in the NIT. Great.
If those projections hold, and we play at either USF or UCF as a 2, I might be able to make it, depending on the day/time. But, I'm sure all of that will change over the coming weeks.

I don't get the projected seeding though. UCF and Dayton 2 seeds? Illinois and Minnesota, both well below .500 in their conference get 1 seeds?

I think we can make a run at the NIT.. rather that than get boat raced in the first round of the dance.

(1) Beat Austin Peay (2) Beat Memphis in Hawaii (3) Beat Mississippi State (4) Beat UGA in Athens (5) beat Ky by 2 and not lose by 2, and we punch our own ticket.

All of the above mentioned loses, were by 3 points or less. Very close margin between us being in the NCAA tourney and out of it.

UT has a very, very, slim, slim chance at an at large bid...They will need to win the rest of the season and make it to the SEC final...and get some help from a bunch of bubble teams.

If my calculations are right, that's about a 0.001%
