    Back to 50-50 in the 50-50s. On or above pace in all four categories.

    I think we need an extra one from this bucket, to make up for the "Big Boy" bucket. I have a hard time seeing us beating Michigan or winning @ MSU. Maybe Michigan at home, but man they are good.

    We could also get Indiana to wrap up that bucket.

    Ah. You're right. I was thinking 3 out of that group.

    This was a big win. Need to clean up at home now and steal a couple more road wins for some cushion pending any slip ups.

    6-1 in our next 7 is a very realistic possibility. Feel like 5-2 is a must.

    I think with how the Big Ten is shaking out, we don't even have to worry about "buckets" at this stage. ANY combination of nine more wins puts us at 11-9 in the Big Ten and 21-10 overall and that will 100% make it a stress free Selection Sunday no matter what buckets the wins come from. Eight more wins at 10-10 almost certainly is enough to get us in at this stage, too.

    We should be favored (and win) in 6 of the next 7 games. We really need to pile up wins before a tough stretch late in the season.

    Default Utah won @ Arizona State last night

    Never hurts to get even the tiniest bit of help.

    What a mess the Pac 12 is.

    I'll be interested in seeing what our NET is this morning. We entered at 52. Should move into the top 40 after that. We moved from 64 in Kenpom to 49 after last night. Can't State how big of a win this was.
