I hope the committee considers you for an at large bid this year.
You guys are picking the wrong time to tank.

Your team almost upset the first ever unanimous MWC preseason pick. Your guys should hold their heads high.

the only thing SDSU is tonight is #2.

And that’s a #2 like the poop your face is rubbed in.

Back to back MWC champs against you when it counts. How does it feel to be (I can't express myself without swearing) slapped by Sam Merrill?

Enjoy the two seed dont lose to a 15 seed

SDSU needs help to stay as a 1 seed.

If any four of Duke, Baylor, Kansas, Gonzaga, or Dayton with their conference tournament, they'll be the 1 seed over SDSU.

But that's okay, a 2 seed in the West is better than a 1 seed in the East for SDSU anyway.

We were 11 going in. This win bumps us up a line or 3

We weren't "going in". We would've been left out easily.

SDSU will probably drop to 2 now. Florida State or Dayton will pass them up.

Yep we had to win today. We were not going to get an at-large. We were barely in "the last 4" and that would have barely lasted with bubble teams building their resume over the next week. Luckily we won and can have a relaxing week.

Most smart guys had us in last 4 in, our resume was worthy especially with a close loss in the finals to SDSU

Actually was kind of looking forward to playing in one of the play in games, always felt it would be good to get the jitters out in one of those and build some momentum

Think we move up to a 9/10 now, but 10/11 is better for making a deeper run obviously

I would actually love an 11 seed this year. We can play with any 6 seed and then get a game against a 3 seed would be pretty ideal.

Respect must be paid to SDSU. They've been in the conference championship six times in the seven years we've been in the conference.

Why one time, they even won! Meanwhile we've only been in two title games. Won them both, sure, but six is a lot more than two. Humility, my brothers.

Hail to the Aztecs: the Buffalo Bills of the Mountain West. WE WILL BE VIC-TORRRRRRR-IOUS!! (through the semifinals...)

Luckily, the argument is totally moot, and completely pointless speculation.

So many variables would have been at play in a shrinking bubble, on to the tournament.

I predict a 8-10 seed FWIW.

You guys deserve a 1 seed, but wouldn't a 2 seed and play in LA be better?

Honestly, I'm not convinced SDSU deserves a 1 seed. Dayton has the same number of losses, but Dayton has more Q1 and Q2 wins and both Dayton's losses are against Q1 opponents. Dayton's profile is arguably better than Gonzaga's even. I think Baylor should be a no. 1 too.

But I do agree with you that SDSU fans should prefer SDSU stays in the West region.

Most SDSU fans I talked to at tourney preferred to be be #2 seed so the games would be close to home. Sacramento and the LA but the won't make it to LA if they don't play better than they did in any of their 3 games this tournament.

Kudos on the win you guys ! I know our fan bases don’t really like each other but I’ll be cheering for you guys to make some noise in the tourney. It was a hard fought game on both sides and that’s all you can ask for. Extra hats off to Merril. I freakin hate that kid. Lol. But good luck the rest of the way!

Thanks for visiting. Great game, and great season by your team. We're just giving the SDSU troll a hard time because he's been over here for months incessantly chirping in our ears about how amazing SDSU is and how bad the Aggies are. It's time for him to eat some crow.

Wish you the best in the tournament!

Yes look no further than the Sam Diego State players' faces during the press conference to see how meaningless it is. Everybody knows the real banners that matter are regular season ones.

MWCT and MWC is actually meaningless to SDSU basketball standards. They just don't like losing period and they expect to win every game.

I do feel bad for the #16 seed that will inevitably get annihilated.
