Those 3 wins have meant exactly zip, since every other bubble team is right there with us, keeping pace.
All it takes is one slip up and we're out. And with our upcoming schedule...
If we had lost those three games, we'd already be out of the immediate race. We have a lot of games left and so does every other team.
Points gained by another team does not negate points gained by our team. It just doesn't work that way. I'll be happy if we keep pace enough to not have to worry about what other teams are doing.
The situation can change from day to day. I don't see the sense of celebrating being in 6th then dropping to 8th then 10th then back up to 7th..... it's just inconsequential. As long as the team plays hard for the remainder of the schedule I have faith our talent will prevail. I think we're the best bubble team and we have the best ability to maintain this winning streak. That's all that matters to me.
The reason I don't care to scoreboard watch is because I don't think a team that gets into the playoffs on the strength of other teams losing is a team that is going to go very far anyways. If we go 10-5 in the remaining games and miss out then so be it. The other teams will have earned the right to be there. If we go 7-8 and make it then.... *shrug*.... good for them but I don't think we'll be there very long.
