    I'm afraid you are correct. 11 seed is a real long shot imo

    Sucks that all 12 & 13 seeds are going to either Boise or San Diego. It would be nice to move up to 11.

    They are having a historic season. Finishing the season in first place should be celebrated. Winning the Sunbelt should be celebrated. Getting to the tournament should make Lafayette go nuts. Yes sir, One step at a time...

    I'm just hoping for a ticket to the dance, and a healthy team thru the conference tournament.

    This is a combo of the RPI and the BPI. My original thought was that we wouldn't get much more than a 12 or 13 seed even, however, the BPI tracks how you play not just who you play and our double digit wins in just about every conference game along with our pace and number of points we average are no doubt playing a role in our BPI bumps.

    Let's win regular season first. We know we hang a banner if that occurs. Also gives us No. 1 seed in conference tournament. Texas State has lost lots of close games lately. Cajuns get out to lead on Thursday and they may have doubt set in

    How is that a foregone conclusion?

    According to this, the official bracket is blank, with no sites.

    Unless they've changed it, the NCAA selection committee attempts to keep the top four seeds in each region (with preference going to higher seeds) as close to home as possible. Therefore, at least technically, this would mean the Cajuns (should we win the tourney) could go anywhere.

    Now, they may have changed this and I don't know...

    ESPN has the game locations on their bracket projections.

    Some of these predictions make no sense to me. As an example, Vermont is a 13 seed to Louisiana's 12 seed. While Louisiana has a better BPI by two spots, Vermont has a better RPI by 4 spots. However, Vermont has a much better strength of schedule and a better record than does Louisiana against top 150 competition. Looking at it objectively, Vermont, at last right now, should be a higher seed than Louisiana. Maybe the person doing the prediction believes that Louisiana's RPI will be better with a tournament win than will Vermont, But, I don't see it.

    12 seeds have been the popular play in games along with the 16 seeds. Not all of the 12's will be automatic bids more than likely. I think the 12 seed could be our limit but if we were to win out, we could possibly see an 11 seed although it is not likely.

    Locations are not predicted. That is set well in advance.

    There are many predictions that I've seen that seem weird. People have Kansas over Texas Tech and I saw one that had Michigan State is a 3 seed? However, these are projections so they are projecting how these teams will finish which includes completion of the season. That is why this stuff shouldn't be taken too seriously at this point. Vermont won't be in if they don't win their tournament just like the Cajuns.

    Louisiana's RPI up to 48 today. Finally cracked the 40s.

    Not true regarding the play in games. The play in games have been 11 and 16 seeds for the last 3 tournaments.

    I think for Louisiana to get a 12 seed, at lease three one-bid conferences where the current leader is higher ranked than Louisiana would have to have upsets. That's within the realm of possibility, though unlikely. To get an 11 seed, with Louisiana having only two wins against top 150 schools, is about at least as unlikely as me winning the lottery, and I don't play the lottery.
