We’re barely a week away from Selection Sunday, so SB Nation bracketologist Chris Dobbertean joined us Wednesday night to look at all the possible scenarios remaining for Kansas State. We even asked him where the Wildcats would be if not for those disastrous results at Tulsa and Texas A&M. The good news is Chris believes many people are overly penalizing K-State for its nonconference losses and not giving it as much credit as the committee will for some of its successes, like an outstanding Big 12 record, especially on the road.

After all, the Big 12 looks poised to get at least 7 and possibly 8 teams into the field, although Chris thinks TCU might be in some trouble. He also tries to explain why KU is still ranked so high in most brackets, but notes there’s definitely some uncertainty in where the committee might place the Jayhawks.

Don’t forget to follow Chris on Twitter @ChrisDobbertean and definitely stay tuned to his daily bracket updates at Blogging the Bracket.
