ahh i dont think there's any bias when it comes to the mountain west. I treat the mwc/a10 like i treat the acc/sec/pac. I'm not sure what team you're talking about specifically getting a pass? Boise State has solid wins against Creighton and UNLV, not too bad...but only 2 good wins and an inevitable 10loss season, might be tough to overcome as the 5th best mountain west conference team.
they'll have opportunites (along with Air Force). They have to go at least 4-1 in the next 5 games though....or go 3-1 against @UNM, @UNLV, SDSU, CoState.
I wasn't talking about any specific teams.
As for the remainder of Boise's schedule, I think they need to win out at home, win one more road game, and at least one MW tournament game. That will, at least, keep them on the bubble. It should be doable, as they have 5 home games, and just 3 road games, remaining. The RPI, right now, is 53, and that's with a 13-7 record. They're one of only three teams (Oregon, Boise, and Duke, I believe) to win multiple road games v the top 25, as of now. Also, the win v LSU, could end up being a good one. The biggest factor, like I already stated, is that the team is finally getting healthy. They aren't near as cohesive, when Elorriaga isn't playing.
That said, I think they'll end up in the NIT.
