Thought this would fit the mood of panic on the board.

If GU makes the tournament as a first round play-in team, do they have to win the game to keep the NCAA tournament appearance streak alive?

No, because that's already a tournament game in the field of 68.

This is why its called the first round, and whats really known as the first round to many of us is called the second round.

my personal standard is that i would consider getting the play-in and losing to be making the tournament.

winning that play-in game, however, should NOT add another "w" to the all time tournament w/l record.

Reminds me of the old Three Stooges Routine......... I don't like the play in game.....the designated hitter.....the 3 point field goal...on kids on my f'ing lawn
