With the loss by Baylor in the Big 12 Championship game Saturday, Texas should be on the correct side of the bubble for the NCAA playoffs. The Longhorns should be the fifth or sixth team taken from the conference.
Given some luck, we’ll get a #6 seed, although I suspect a #7 is more likely. The pessimist in me worries that we’re looking at a #8 or #9.
The schizophrenic nature of this team means a deep run in the tournament is unlikely, but if the correct team shows up, I can see us getting a win or two. Considering the highs and lows of this season, that’s not an unreasonable outcome.
