    ESPN Bracketology (1/3)

    The first edition of the ESPN Bracketology from Joe Lunardi is now available on ESPN... Six Big 12 teams are currently projected to make the field, with Oklahoma State rated to be one of the first eight teams left out.

    Of interest is teams climbing and falling this week, which actually gives Virginia a 35% chance of making the field. But, Iowa State and Nebraska are both mentioned as being other teams that are on the cusp of the bubble.

    Not getting the hopes up here, but a continued surprising performance through the conference and we will get noticed! Win the games that we are supposed too and get the 2 or 3 extra wins that we weren't supposed to and we can be in the mix!

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    and besides, even if we are on that bubble come march, our week schedule will bust that bubble rather quickly

    First, it is a weak schedule.. Sorry, had too...

    And, if it is that weak then we don't even get on the bubble. We have to come up with a couple of big wins against teams that we weren't supposed to beat to make it onto the bubble. Just an FYI, our projected SOS is 61 compared to our current SOS of 280+...

    Where are you seeing detail on ISU, and %'s for a team like UVA? I see nothing like that.

    Yes, the percentage for UVA and other details are within an insider's column so I can't provide much more info than that brief overview.

    I guess I would put it more as Virginia was just outside of the bubble...
