If MSU loses today or against Michigan we are in great shape to get out of the 8/9 game

Oregon-UCLA looks like the biggest of those since UCLA is a team that's right around us in projections, and 2 ahead of us in the RPI

I understand MSU winning would boost our RPI, but wouldn't it also cause more competition for the NCAA bubble?

Yup. Double edged sword. Also finishing higher than them would help us with BTT seeding and potentially create easier matchups

Russell is fun to watch. The kid is just a premiere dual threat pg. He is not scoring much at all and still having a big impact on this game.

MSU is firmly in as of right now. We are as well. So, the MSU/OSU tilt is only relevant for us regarding the BTT, I think.

I thought popping your jersey became a technical thanks to Dee. Guess not.

Not at the end of last season.
We needed help, but didn't get losses from the necessary teams.
This year's team just needs to keep winning.
 
#22
We just gotta win out at home. But am I the only one who has a really bad feeling about the MSU game?

MSU's win today makes our win in East Lansing look better.
