So, if they go 6-3 the rest of the way (which they SHOULD at least!) and end the regular season at 20-11, do they get in the NCAA?

Not that anyone outside of the B1G will notice, but NW is a good team right now and NE is also a pretty good team right now. IU has two games against Iowa which is a top 15 team nationally. Win both of those and things will look very good for the NCAA’s!

PB – well, I said .500+. So that would mean 10-8, and I would be willing to make a small wager that NW would get in at that point. That would put them at 17-14 (17-15 if they lose in 1st round of B1G tourney), with wins over UW and a ranked Illinois team, and 7-3 in their last 10…
