No astrerisk as that is the team they have going forward.

Relax people - it's more about what happens in March than October/November.

With our ooc schedule we cannot build an NCAA tournament resume in November/December, but we can certainly destroy it. We need to win them all.

I don't know about that.

If we flame out in conference play and end up without even an NIT bid I will always remember being 8-0 !!

We can win Conference tournament and get in - even if we lose every game between now and then.
There are 32 at-large bids. If we assume 1/3 of the top 25 win their conference tournaments and receive automatic bids, that leaves space for At-Large bids for roughly everyone in the top 35 will get a look. End up in the top tier of the AAC and we should be fine.
