You guys are currently 29 in NET with home games remaining vs. Illinois, Michigan, and Maryland. I don't expect you to go 3-0 but going even 1-2 there and taking 2/4 on the road (OSU, Wisconsin, PSU, Purdue) plus 1 win in the BTT will get you to 19 wins and at minimum will be a bubble team/play in game. Might make you guys sweat but barring a huge collapse you will be in given the Big Ten's reputation this year.

I think 3 wins and we're good.

Based on that schedule I'd say yes, especially if 2 are at home. But depending on when they occur, 3 wins and a loss in the BTT you're likely still in but sweating I'd think. If Iowa basketball has taught me anything under Fran, don't go into selection Sunday with more than 1 recent loss or no wins in the BTT if you are in that 30+ range.

I think they need 2 road wins. They still haven't won outside of Piscataway all season except for Nebraska.

If they get two home wins against that schedule, then I don't think they need more than one road win but it certainly wouldn't hurt. Two home wins, 1 road win, and I think they have to win a BTT game to avoid a stressful Sunday.

Agreed but hopefully they get one in the BTT regardless.

It's not going to matter depending on holding serve at home. If we jack up our home record then multiple wins on road or at BTT. If we win the rest at home but one game then just one road win or one BTT win and we're fine.

Its not impossible, but losing to Northwestern at home yesterday would have swung that door wide open. That was a big comeback.

Yeah that would have been a disaster and we couldn't take a loss like that on the resume after early season St Bonnie.

I'll see your St Bonnies and Pitt, and raise you DePaul at home by 15.

In case everyone needed a laugh, enjoy this video of Fran's youngest son dominating middle schoolers that all look like midgets...

The Gophers are very easily the worst offensive high major team I've ever seen.

I still don't think you have a ton to worry about, not like the Kohl Center is an easy place to win. They've left the door open to Rutgers this away though, I'll give you that.
