Do you guys believe unbiasedly we deserve a bid? I'm 50/50...I will let the B/E tourney make my decision.
Only the dead have seen the end of war -Plato
Deserve a bid? Probably not.
However, March Madness takes 30 some at large bids. I think we are on the borderline with us leaning towards the good side. We really need to win the USF game to make it a stronger lean of getting in.
If we get this 1 and 1 in the the B/E Tourney I believe we desrve a bid. As it stands I say no.
The USF win will mean alot more now that they beat L'vIlle on the road
Right now, I think we are on the inside for one of the 37 at large bids. If we go down to USF and lay an egg like @ ND, I think we're outside looking in and would have to win a few BE tourney games to get back on the inside. I guess I'll reserve my choice until about 2:10 P.M. Saturday afternoon.
To borrow a famous line from Clint Eastwood:
"Deserves got nothin' to do with it"....
I think we are sitting right where we should be....on the bubble. We have had a couple nice wins and a couple bad losses. I think if we beat USF we are almost a lock.
When the committee starts narrowing down the at-large bids, they are going to take note of the 2 point loss to Baylor, the robbery that took place in Syracuse, a 1 point loss to top 10 Marquette team, and I think that will be what keeps us in front of some other schools who may be just as deserving.
Based on what the other bubble teams have done? Yes, I think we deserve a bid.
Unless we make some noise in the tourney my guess is that we will not make it in. The Selection committee seems to favor teams that are playing well at the end of the season even though we played much better in the early part of the season. In my mind we deserve to be in the tourney since we lost by a few points to some good teams (Syracuse for example) and had some controversial calls that could have swung the game in our favor! Go Eers!

Lets just beat USF and then win the big least tourney and go to the dance that way. That sounds pretty easy I think! LOL
If we beat usf then I think we deserve to get in, if not then we need to win at least two to get to 20 wins
WVU deserves to be in. Leaving them out penalizes them for playing a tough schedule. Switch up any team with WVU who is on the bubble and have them trade schedules. WVU would outperform all of them. Their worst loss comes to ST johns who just beat a top 15 team.
The same argument against the big east in football should carry the same weight in their favor for bball. A win at USF guarantees it.
At the moment I say WVU is not in. Due to the fact we have lost 7 of 10 an the comm. usually awards the hot teams this time of year. Now a USF win and one or two wins in the BE tourney would put WVU in the dance. As far as deserves im on the fence at the moment.
If WVU makes it to 19wins they are in prolly at a 9 to 12 seed ... The committee wont keep a Huggins coached team that has played the schedule we have with 19 wins out
I agree with you. When comparing bubble teams, it isn't so much who deserves a bid as much as who deserves it more. All the little factors must be compared to give the bid to the right teams. As of right now, I can't think of another so called bubble team that deserves a bid over us. Very few teams played a schedule as tough as ours.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional !
The committe looks at Neutral site games as much as away games and in Neutral site games WVU was done very well ... i believe like 4 and 1 with a very * loss
Gotta beat USF, then we deserve and will get in as a 10 to 12 seed
Agree and I will be at that game on Saturday cheering the Eers on.
