It might cost us a NIT bid as well. We're outside looking in currently

Regardless on the OOC scheduling, when you beat a team in the top half of your conference and drop, it's a problem with the rankings. There is no way that beating Temple should be a negative.

The weak OOC schedule itself isn't costing us postseason consideration, it's losing games to those weak teams that's killing us. Hunter can make all the proclamations he wants about the schedule, but win the F'ing games if you're going to schedule cupcakes.

Losses to Tulsa (323), ECU (209), W Kentucky (175), Fordham (134), George Mason (132), with very few good wins. No one to blame but themselves for scheduling like that. Only had 9 Q1 & Q2 games. If you're gonna play bad teams, gotta win them all.

It’s depends on all of opponents not just the one we’re playing that night.

I like the Temple team btw, they play together really well and have some good players. They do remind me a bit of
Houston…. Interesting though as they really dont match up well against us, interesting how that works.

They should be really good next year if they keep their crew.

I know the rank is based on all opponents, but you said it went down after beating a quality team. There is something wrong there.

Temple #121 so a home win doesn’t move the needle.
