    Championship Week 2020

    Automatic bids won (3):
    Utah State - Mountain West (possible bid thief)
    Belmont - Ohio Valley
    Winthrop - Big South

    Currently got a great Missouri Valley game in progress (Bradley/Valpo) along with the A-Sun Championship now underway between Lipscomb/Liberty.

    Also worth noting that there's a chance Xavier could beat two auto bid teams (Lipscomb and Siena) and maybe Western Carolina if they can pull a shocker today. Of course, there's the potential cruel irony of WCU stealing a bid from Xavier, so there's that.

    ETSU has a NET of 40.
    They now play Wofford in the SoCon final tomorrow night (courtesy of a last few seconds shot by Wofford)
    If Wofford somehow sneaks out a win, would ETSU stay in?
    The matrix has them as the first 12; Bracketville as an 11.

    Edit: Wofford has had an up and down season. Beat UNC at Carmichael, lost to ETSU by a point away, and lost to them by 6 at home.

    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    If ETSU would have lost the title game to a Furman or UNC-Greensboro, I'd say yes.

    For this year's Wofford team, I would strongly recommend that ETSU not blow this.

    I was going to cue the annual Pat Kelsey to X tease, yet I see plenty of others have already done that in another thread lol.

    I don't know. Kelsey's looking good at Winthrop. Maybe he and Steele will be Trading Places, then once Kelsey takes us to a Final 4 he'll be in the running for the Duke job.

    I'd like to think the committee would still take them, but I'm not sure. Northern Iowa is also very close to the cut line.

    I am hoping my SLU Billikens can win back to back A10 tourney's and make it to the dance. They have had a really solid season (blew a late 13 point lead against UD at SLU and lost in OT) and enter as the 4 seed. They won 4 in 4 days last year but have a double bye this year and only need to win 3. They cant get an at large but they are like the 8-9th team out in most bracketologists I have seen. They return 9 of their top 10 players next year too, I expect a tourney bid next year.

    Need to make sure the dont steal a bid from X though if they do win the A10, so lets take care of business X.

    I feel the same way about the Spiders.

    Richmond has a shot to get in without the auto bid. I'd like to think that having Bernie McGlade on the Selection Committee can only help their chances.
