If we beat Wisky....?
I think if we beat Wisconsin and MSU, then we start getting talked about again but realistically, we have to win the tourney.
I would guess for sure if we beat #6 MSU
I disagree but who knows what ADBM is thinking?
and I don't know how we would compare to other bubble teams...
Beat Wisconsin and we are in.
I can’t think 19-16 gets it done, even with two neutral wins over ranked teams. I think 20-16 would, though, but maybe a play in game.
Well, seeing as we're 18-15 now, another win (Wisconsin) would put us @ 19-15. I don't know if that would do it either.
Normally I would agree with you but this has a different feeling. Starting to pull on everyone’s heart strings. They have the quality wins and 19 wins does get u in. Losing conference record is the big negative but they may get a break because of losing key player, taking their licks and finishing strong (4 out of 5 if they beat Wisconsin and lose next game).
We have to finish with 16 losses unless we win the B1G — in which case it’s automatic. So 19-16 and 20-16 are the options to consider.
I see what you're getting at now. I went back and reread @Red Blitz's post that you responded too and realized what you were getting at. My bad.
And why do we have to finish with 16 losses? Win out (both tourneys) & have only 15 losses. It's only 9 straight we need.
Nebraska will only get in if they win the tournament.
Agree. They make the CCG and they will be in the conversation but lose that game I think too much damage was done.
Yup, they are just so far off the bubble that even beating some good teams won't be enough. Although teams like Belmont, Furman, etc, are praying that NU doesn't become a bid stealer.
Regardless of Nebraska's chances to make the Big Dance, ESPN has made Nebraska a 4 seed in the "College Basketball Misery Index: When madness turns to sadness."
