I'm not there yet. Couple of things give me hope. The overall field is about as compact as it gets. Imagine what football would have looked like this year without Clemson, Ohio State and LSU.. that's what the NCAA basketball field feels like. 20 teams could win this thing.
Bigger thing to me.. despite all the problems of late we've had a wonky schedule. The only blip has been the Wisky loss at home. We've been on the road. We end the season with 5 of 8 at home.
We HAVE to win these next 3 though.. Minny and IU at home and at Northwestern are all winnable games.. Win the next 3 and then it's basically .500 basketball to get to the tourney.. Lose 2 or 3 of the next 3... then it's worry time...
