Projections on the Season?
« on: November 05, 2021, 05:53:21 PM »
Cats win ~24 games this year, get 4-5 seed, and get to the Sweet 16.

Definitely a bubble team this year. 10 seed. Will take for this Sophomore group.

Bubble team. Last 4 in. oscar wins a tourney game. Saves job. This is his gimmick.

As much as I want to say NO, this is prob the most likely scenario. I just get hyped every year...

Which means like next year is our surprise E8 run, next year after that is a Big 12 run that we crash out of the first round as a 3/4 seed

Tougher non-con than usual. 

9-4 non-con
9-9 conference
1-1 P66

19-14, puts us squarely in the first 4/NIT range

I don’t see how we win a single game against the top four so that’s 10 tries for 9 wins agains the bottom 5.

Without looking at the roster or having any idea how good we'll be I'd be shocked if we go 0-8 against the top 4. If you play 8 games with a 13% chance to win, you'll probably win one of them even each individual matchup looks impossible.

Based on the first 8ish minutes of the season an NIT bid is looking like the ceiling for this team.

I don't think that's a sound basis for a season-long projection!

Even if you go 1-7  you need to win 8/10 against the other 5 to get to 9.  That’s highly unlikely.

Actually it is too early for me to say you're absolutely right other than your point that the divide between top and bottom teams probably won't be so stark. Why isn't 9-9 feasible?

Just list the matchups and where you think we get 9 wins from.  I personally don’t think we get more than 1 win against the top 4 with how good those teams will be.  That leaves 10 games for us to get 8 wins from and I think we are probably good enough to split with OSU, OU, and WVU so that’s 3 more.  So if you sweep ISU and TCU you get 1 + 3 + 4 is 8.  I think 8 is the ceiling.  If you win 2 out of 8 against top 4 then you are maybe in business.

Like I don't even know who the top 4 teams you're referencing are other than I'm guessing Texas and Kansas

Baylor is the reigning NCAA champion and picked third in the league if that tells you anything. My assumption is TTU will still be really good from what Beard left behind but maybe they aren’t in that top 4 tier as the season progresses.  I think 9-9 gets us to the dance and would be thrilled.
