All 3 cannot be tied at the end. Tiebreakers favor mOO

February 29, 2012 10:13AM
Tiebreakers are:
1. Head-to-head competition
2. Competition against highest ranking other team (cascade from top to bottom until tie is broken)

BU plays at Ames in their season finale.
mOO plays in Lubbock.
There are eight possible scenarios for these three teams.

Current Head-to-Head records

mOO v BU.: 2-0
mOO v ISU: 1-0 pending tonight
mOO v KU.: 1-1

BU v ISU: 1-0 pending Saturday
BU v KU.: 0-2

ISU v KU: 1-1

POSSIBILITIES from (IMO) Most Likely to Least Likely

If mOO wins tonight and wins in Lubbock, and ISU wins @Ames:
mOO: 14-4 undisputed 2nd place and seed
ISU...: 12-6 T3rd place/3 seed (HtH:tie; 1-1 v 0-2 v KU is tiebreaker)
BU....: 12-6 T3rd place/4 seed

If mOO wins tonight and wins in Lubbock, and BU wins @Ames:
mOO: 14-4 2nd place/seed
BU....:13-5 3rd place/seed
ISU...:11-7 4th place/seed

If mOO loses tonight and wins in Lubbock, and ISU wins in Ames:
mOO: 13-5 T2nd place/2 seed (HtH: tie; v KU: tie; 2-0 v 1-1 v BU is tiebreaker)
ISU...: 13-5 T2nd place/3 seed
BU....: 12-6 4th place/seed

If mOO loses tonight and wins in Lubbock, and BU wins in Ames:
mOO: 13-5 T2nd place/2 seed (HtH is tiebreaker)
BU....: 13-5 T2nd place/3 seed
ISU...: 12-6 4th place/seed

If mOO wins tonight and loses in Lubbock, and ISU wins in Ames:
mOO: 13-5 2nd place/2 seed
ISU...: 12-6 T3rd place/3 seed (Hth: Tie; 1-1 v 0-2 v KU is tiebreaker)
BU....: 12-6 T3rd place/4 seed

If mOO wins tonight and loses in Lubbock, and BU wins in Ames:
mOO: 13-5 T2nd place/2 seed (HtH is tiebreaker)
BU....: 13-5 T2nd place/3 seed
ISU...: 11-7 4th place/seed

If mOO loses tonight and loses in Lubbock, and ISU wins in Ames:
ISU...: 13-5 2nd place/seed
mOO: 12-6 T3rd place and 3 seed (HtH is tiebreaker)
BU....: 12-6 T3rd place and 4 seed

If mOO loses tonight and loses in Lubbock, and BU wins in Ames:
BU...: 13-5 2nd place/seed
mOO: 12-6 T3rd place and seed ((HtH: tie; v KU: tie; 2-0 v 1-1 v BU is tiebreaker)
ISU..: 12-6 T3rd place and 4 seed

In 6 of the 8 scdenarios, mOO is 2nd. mOO holds all the tiebreakers. They would have to lose both of their remaining games to drop to 3rd.

ISU must win out and have mOO finish on a 4 game losing streak to take 2nd and the 2nd seed

BU needs to beat ISU Saturday and have mOO finish on a 4 game losing streak to take 2nd and the 2nd seed.

I've triple checked this, but haven't had my 3rd cuppa joe yet, so let me know if it needs fixing.
