Sunday bracketology roundup #iubb

Depending on who you ask, Indiana is going dancing. Or maybe it’s not.

Five hours from now, we’ll know for sure. Until then, here’s a quick look at where IU stands early on Selection Sunday. There’s still one major game that could affect the Hoosiers’ direction. A UConn win over SMU in the American Athletic Conference championship would steal another bid from the bubble, likely making things very, very hard on IU. That game tips off at 3:15 on ESPN.

“When compared to the other eight teams in contention for the last seven spots, IU has more top-end wins, and they’ve lost just one game to a team that won’t be in the field,” Bottoms writes.

“IU is in a weird position, where they are struggling to climb up the bracket due to their overall depth of wins, but probably can’t drop a lot further due to the fact that they’ve beaten some teams that are definitely in the tournament,” GC writes.

“Indiana and Texas makes for a toss-up,” Stevens tweeted. “Top of Hoosiers’ profile better. Texas better away from home. Only one 100+ losses between them. SOS numbers tilt slightly to Texas, but not to a significant degree (though Indiana messed up big time with four 300+ opponents).”

These are all good guides for where things stand this afternoon, but things will drastically change if UConn wins and relegates SMU to an at-large bid.

  1. UConn lost. If we were the last ones in to start the day, we’re still the last ones in. I hate that we’re in this position to begin with, but this may be our saving grace. It’s antacid time for this guy.
