I JUST HAVE TO LAUGH

Now that Tennessee St upset #7 Murray St, there are no longer any undefeated teams in division 1 play. The ESPN announcers covering the St. Mary's/Gonzaga game are saying that the Racers are likely to miss out on the field of 68 if they don't win their bracket buster game against the Gaels.

I don't care if your RPI is 220 something or you play in a weak conference like the Ohio Valley. If Murray State doesn't finish with any more than 3 losses they are easily in. Sure they may have to win the postseason tourney, but if they end up the regular season ranked in the top 20, I don't see them getting any lower than a 10, and that's a worst case scenario.

The 1 team I can remember not getting an invite to the tourney with less than 3 losses was Utah St, that went like 27or28-3, .....I know it was more than 10+ years ago

    Yeah it would imo take a complete collapse like losing at least one more regular season game and then losing in say the second round of their conference tourney to even consider leaving them out. Even with the defeat tonight, they don't fall than say 12 13 in the country in next weeks' poll. This is a one loss team and while they play in a mid-major and their seed might be affected, there's no denying them as one of the 68 best.
