    nice move bringing Indiana back into consideration. They win these next two games and they are probably better shots than we are with all those Quad 1 games.

    Gophers move to IN status and not the last 4 with a win tonight!

    Go Gophers!

    I'm very confident saying if Indiana wins its last two regular-season games and then one in Chicago, they'll likely be in at 18-15. That would not be a good development for the Gophers.

    Really bad year for the non-power 5 at larges. I noticed on your list last week there were very few even under consideration. That will be the talk of Selection Sunday, especially if there are multiple under .500 Power 5's in.

    I'm surprised you still have TCU in. They are in a free fall, understandable as it is.

    We'll get some upsets in the bid-stealing conferences. In the end there will be at least several non-Power 6 at-large candidates worthy of consideration.

    TCU definitely in peril.

    Hope Clemson doesn’t make it in. Really hate it that a mega football school can just dump a truck load of football cash into its basketball program, that has no history of anything, and become good, from nothing. Hate that.

    Clemson had some very good teams in the years between their national title in 1981(?) and their dominance now - all while they were at best an average football program. Plus, would you really qualify the extreme edge of the bubble and battling to get to .500 in conference as "good"? I know plenty on here who do not.

    They were in the tourny last year, from nothing. So we’re Alabama and Auburn, although I know the latter had Charles Barkley at least. Still pisses me off. Damn southern schools. Folks in Alabama and South Carolina don’t give a flaming crap about basketball.

    Clemson gave a certain team all they could handle in 1997.
    Them making the tournament last year had absolutely nothing to do with their football program. What an odd take.

    They dumped football money into the program, to beef it up.

    Just a heads up, the Big 10 Tourney is at the United Center in Chicago this year, not Indy. Set your GPS accordingly.

    Fixed.

    Definitely wouldn't want to drive those extra few hours

    Certainly schools do this successfully (Florida, Ohio State, Texas) but I don't really see where you are coming from with Clemson. Brad Brownell has been there for like 8 years. Clemson has been mostly mediocre and nowhere near the other football schools I mentioned.

    It’s based on making it last year, and being in the running for this year. Hope they fail.
