Revisiting the path

Time to drag The Path back out of the closet. I thought it was done for good, but then DJ Beastmode + Griffey's lay-in forced it back out. The Path To Nine Wins.

The best thing about The Path To Nine Wins? After we beat Ohio State, it was fairly apparent that we only needed 8 wins. After we beat Indiana, I'd say it's a better than 60% chance that 7-11 gets us in. Andy Katz, Jeff Goodman, and other national talking heads are all repeating the same thing: 20-13 (7-11) with wins over Gonzaga, Butler, Ohio State, and Indiana probably gets us in the tournament. And that's assuming a first round BTT loss. Win #21 or #22 before loss #13 and we're probably in for sure. With only seven conference wins.
