Illinois State found themselves on the wrong side of the bubble on Selection Sunday.

It wasn’t much of a surprise, to be honest. The Redbirds had won just a single game against top 80 competition, and that came against in-league rival Wichita State.

That was never going to be enough to get them a bid, not when Wichita State was a No. 10 seed.

So head coach Dan Muller took to twitter to try and find a non-conference game:

And guess what … it worked!

I don’t know why these mid-majors coaches complain about not being able to get games.

Just tweet out a bitmoji and you’re good to go.

Seems pretty simple to me.
