Tie-breaker Bob's playoff update/BULLETIN/advisory

From MU and NEC hoops guru Bob Curran who apparently knows of what he speaks. I thought I would post this as a separate topic.

Also: for Monday, the NEC (Assoc. Commissioner Ron Ratner) will run all the official what if scenarios prior to the games....


This just in from Tie-breaker Bob ----

BULLETIN:
If we win against PA we are in.With RMU losing we control our own destiny.I defy you to prove me wrong!PRINT IT.

(Ok..I did).


From TBB - Here is the latest tie-break for humans:If we win,we are in.To get a 6 seed we need PA to beat LIU,then have LIU beat RMU,and WAG can't win more than one of its next two.If we lose this needs to happen to get in:WAG must lose its last two and LIU must win its last two.



Advisory from me: I have just left a cf message with Ron Ratner of the NEC asking him to pullleese advise me if what Bob says is true. I am sure it is - but -in the Press- I don't know if we can quote Bob!!!

Also.... I will be covering the CBA-FTWP Shore Conference final tonight for the Press. ...

I mention this because I will have deadline issues around 10-pm...but will hope to post Tie-breaker Bob's latest updates...as soon as possible....

For all those moaning about Dave....wonder how the Mark Schmidt fan club is doing? They have won how many titles lately??

Tony,
For us to get a 6 seed,we need to be in a 3-way tie at 8-10 with WAG and RMU.This means LIU MUST lose tonight vs.PA(if LIU wins tonight 6 seed is out) and win their last game at RMU,also WAG can't sweep last two games.
If LIU loses tonight we control our own destiny.If LIU and WAG both lose tonight we control our own destiny for a 7 seed.I'll have a complete update after tonight's action.

Bob you are the man, thank you for this insight. I'm glad you can make heads or tails of this mess. I really appreciate you doing this.

The NEC should put TBB on its payroll..he could do it for the whole league (I don't know if he'd want to though)...unless the price was right!!!

Tony,
I made one boo-boo.If we get into a 3-way tie with WAG and LIU we are not out if:FDU finishes in front of SHU.They (FDU)would get the tie-break in a 3 way with QU and SHU and would be the 2nd seed.This would give us the 8th seed and LIU the 7th ......sorry.

Tony,
My head is spinning.QU,SHU and FDU can't be in a 3 way but it doesn't matter.If QU beats SHU they will be the 2 seed which is fine for us in a three way with WAG and LIU.If FDU and SHU tie,FDU gets the 3 seed, which in turn gives LIU the 7 seed and us the 8th.If I knew you were going to run this as a thread,I would have been a little more meticulous.

For those who can't figure this out,here is who you need to cheer for tonight.PA over LIU, FDU over WAG and MSM over SFNY.Opps,forgot about SFNY.If we finish in a 3 way with WAG and SFNY,we are in as a 7 seed.In a 4 way w/WAG,SFNY and LIU we are out.

Tony,

How does the in comming class of Freshmen look like for us next year? Anyone that can play like Jhamar? We need more people like him and turn MU into the run and gun type team.

Tony,
You may want to erase the earlier thread.Here is the latest tie-break for humans:
If we win,we are in.To get a 6 seed we need PA to beat LIU,then have LIU beat RMU,and WAG can't win more than one of its next two.
If we lose this needs to happen to get in:WAG must lose its last two and LIU must win its last two.

Tony,
I'll explain how.Let's say LIU wins tonight and beats RMU and we win,we are all 8-10.RMU would be out,0-3 vs MU and LIU.In a 4 way with WAG,LIU,RM for 3 spots RM is out again.There can't be a 3 way tie with MU,WAG and LIU at 8-10.....RMU would have to be in this mix.MU,WAG and LIU can only be tied at 7-11 and this would be bad for us.

Tony,
May want to add this to the thread.If we lose,we can still get in,with a 3-way tie with LIU and WAG if:FDU finishes ahead of SHU.

Tony,
7 teams are in and 3 fighting for one spot.A three way tie(at 7-11) with LIU and SFNY and we are out.A two way with LIU and we are out.A two way with SFNY and we lose if FDU finishes ahead of the Mount and are in if the Mount finishes ahead of FDU.
IF we win we are in.If WAG and RMU lose and we win we are the 6 seed,if one loses we are the 7 seed.PLEASE,JUST WIN.
