    Bids are definitely stolen, earned if you prefer. Teams from any conference who have horrible records steal bids every year. Who's saying a cat burglar isn't working hard? The cat burglar is still stealing.

    Also it's games for teams seeded 11 and 16. Two games feature 11 seeds and other two feature 16 seeds.

    Two of the games are based on the last four at-large teams. They could be 11 seeds, they could be 12 seeds.

    Since the First Four began, they have never been 10 or above or 13 and below

    Bids aren't stolen from people who owned said bids. Should we run the table in lose in NOLA, no one stole our bid. We didn't have a bid until we win the championship or our name comes up on Sunday. Only one team owns a bid from the Sun Belt: the tournament champion. If that's not us, we didn't get it stolen from us. We never owned the bid. Same with leagues that see 6-20 teams winning tournaments.

    They are talking about other conferences, example west coast conference, if anyone else besides st Mary's or gonzaga win the tourney it's a stolen bid, lessening the already very small chance the Cajuns have of getting an at large

    Stop with the at large talk...not happening.

    The more "stolen" bids, the better for our seeding...provided the tournament champion ha a worse RPI than we do.

    I'm rooting for any regular season champion anywhere near our RPI to lose in their tournament.

    As it stands today, yes..but that could change. Should know for sure after these 2 games.

    No it doesn't change anything. He's saying that no tourney upsets means we win our conference tournament as well.

    If we lose our next 7 games, are we still favorites? I know it's not going to happen, but just throwing out a hypothetical.

    We can still lose this conference mathematically and our next 4 gams are against #2 and #3 on the road and #4 and #5 next...don't think we will blow it but not out of the relm of possibility
