According to the latest Bracketology, we are now on the outside looking in:

Hopefully this changes after this weekend's games.

If you sweep, there's a ~70% chance you're back in the top slot after the dust clears Saturday night.

The USC coach used the absence of 4 regular players as an excuse for the loss. That’s not PN talking. It’s an asterisk at best. Princeton sucks.

And a 20% chance of showers, regardless of how the games turn out.

Arizona St beat Xavier

More fun with the transitive property:

Money talks.
Talk is cheap.
So time is cheap.

15th seed playing Michigan St as of 2/5. maybe down to a 14 after trouncing Princeton?

Currently looking at a 15th seed vs. Purdue:

After knocking off the Boilermakers, we'd face the winner of the Creighton/Virginia Tech game. Winnable.

I don't buy 15. I think 13. OK, I'm an optimist.

According to that site, Harvard still has a better RPI than Penn (128 v 134).

Solely the result of Harvard playing a tougher schedule, even though the only Top 150 RPI team H has actually beaten so far is Penn (and lost to it the other time).

Win out, and 15 is likely - 14 a possibility with S-curve luck. The difference means a lot because the drop off after the 2-seeds is huge and if you get past that you end up with a 6-11 winner that could be manageable. At 15, I want Duke! Revenge for '78!

I agree with 10Q - win out and 13

wishful thinking - our SOS pretty much nixes that

This is completely spot on. Anyone who is thinking of a 13 is going to be severely disappointed. Our SOS is just horrendous and even the IL tourney will not alter that.

In fact, if Penn does make it in conceivably the only teams we've played who would even be in the NCAA tourney could be 'Nova (the only for sure team) and Toledo. You never know what the other conference tourneys could do, of course.

First things first, of course--gotta get in.

Believe it or not, Navy has 20 wins and could conceivably win the Patriot League tournament.

13 seems unrealistic. Our schedule consisted largely of teams that came in little paper wrappers, topped with pink icing and sprinkles. Tasty, but empty calories.
