    Re: ***Official 2013 Bracketology Thread***

    It feels so soft I just want to rest my pretty little head on it. March 7th, 2013 Bubble Tracker

    America East - Vermont (1) - Next game vs. Albany for the Championship

    A-10 - VCU, St. Louis, Butler, Temple (4)
    Bubble - La Salle (RPI 40, BPI 53, SOS 85) (1)
    Fringe - Xavier (RPI 77, BPI 71, SOS 30), Massachusetts (RPI 57, BPI 85, SOS 66) (2) - Great win by Temple. That gets them into the NCAA Tournament.

    ACC - Miami, Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State (4)
    Bubble - Virginia (RPI 72, BPI 41, SOS 104) (1) - Virginia gets the win and effectively knocks out Maryland.

    Atlantic Sun - Florida Gulf Coast (1)

    Big 12 - Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State (3)
    Bubble - Oklahoma (RPI 33, BPI 44, SOS 21), Iowa State (RPI 46, BPI 35, SOS 57) (2)
    Fringe - Baylor (RPI 62, BPI 47, SOS 46) (1) - ISU got the two wins it needed. Oklahoma comes back to the bubble with that inexplicable loss to TCU. Baylor stays fringe with that insane win over Kansas. Baylor has a ton of work to do. the winner of Oklahoma vs. ISU becomes a solid lock for the NCAA Tourney.

    Big East - Louisville, Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Cincinnati (7)
    Bubble: Villanova (RPI 52, BPI 60, SOS 26) (1)
    Fringe: Providence (RPI 85, BPI 61, SOS 8) (1) - Missed chance for Providence. Could not get the win over UCONN. Will now need to get to the Big East championship game.

    Big Sky - Montana (1) - Must win Auto Bid.

    Big South - Liberty (1)

    Big Ten - Indiana, Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota (7)
    Bubble - None
    Fringe - Iowa (RPI 71, BPI 49, SOS 58) (1) - Got the win over Nebraska, and need to go deep in the BIg Ten tourney. The non-con schedule is killing this team.

    Big West - Long Beach State (1) - Auto bid or bust.

    CAA - Northeastern (1) - Next game versus James Madison for the Championship. Must win Auto Bid

    CUSA - Memphis (1) - Regular Season Champion. Next game versus winner of Tulane and Marshall.

    Horizon - Valparaiso (1) - Next game versus Wight State for the Championship.

    Ivy - Harvard - Clinched the Ivy.

    MAAC - Iona (1) - Next game vs. Manhattan for the championship. Must win Auto bid

    MAC - Ohio (1) - The Abreu arrest and subsequent collapse of Akron has shattered any hope of an at large dream. This has become auto bid or bust. Ohio look to be the favorite in this conference if Abreu does not come back.

    MEAC - Norfolk State (1) - Next game vs. Bethune Cookman or Coppin State. Must win Auto Bid

    Missouri Valley - Creighton, Wichita State (2) - Creighton the MVC Champion.

    Mountain West - New Mexico, UNLV, Colorado State, SDSU (4)
    Bubble: Boise State (RPI 38, BPI 45, SOS 83) (1)
    Fringe - Air Force (RPI 69, BPI 86, SOS 87) (1) - Big win by Boise State over SDSU. They are looking very solid for the tournament. Air Force got a great win over New Mexico, but still need to make a run in the MWC tournament. This team has the potential to do so.

    Northeast - LIU Brooklyn (1) - Next game versus Mount Saint Mary's for the Championship. Must win Auto Bid. League leader Robert MOrris eliminated.

    Ohio Valley - Belmont - OVC Champion

    Pac-12 - Oregon, UCLA, California, Arizona (4)
    Bubble - Colorado (RPI 37, BPI 37, SOS 5) (1)
    Fringe - ASU (RPI 92, BPI 67, SOS 75) (1) - Bad loss by Colorado to Oregon State. Still in ok position, but need one more win. ASU needs to win the Pac -12 tournament.

    Patriot - Bucknell (1) - Fringe At Large candidate. Would be well served to win their tournament. Next game versus Lafayette for the Patriot League Championship. (RPI 51, BPI 58, SOS 169)

    SEC - Florida, Missouri (2)
    Bubble: Kentucky(RPI 50, BPI 46, SOS 39), Tennessee(RPI 55, BPI 59, SOS 27), Ole Miss(RPI 56, BPI 40, SOS 103) (3)
    Fringe: Alabama (RPI 61, BPI 66, SOS 49), Arkansas (RPI 80, BPI 74, SOS 60) (2) - All bubble teams won on Saturday. Kentucky and Tennessee really helped themselves. The key for everyone is no bad losses. So, don't lose in the first round of the SEC tournament.

    Southern - Davidson (1) - Next game versus College of Charleston for the Championship. Must win Auto Bid

    Southland - Stephen F. Austin (1) - Must Win Auto Bid

    SWAC - Southern (1) - Next game versus Alabama A&M or Grambling State. Must win Auto Bid

    Summit League - South Dakota State (1) - Next game verus IPFW in the semifinals. Must win Auto Bid

    Sun Belt - Western Kentucky (1) - Currently beating Arkansas State.
    Bubble - Middle Tennessee (1) - Just like last year, MTSU loses in their conference tournament. Will need a lot of help to get into the tournament. (
    RPI 25, BPI 38, SOS 133)

    WCC - Gonzaga (1)
    Bubble - Saint Mary's (RPI 30, BPI 33, SOS 112)(1) - Escaped San Diego and now faces Gonzaga for the WCC Crown.

    WAC - Denver (1) - Louisiana Tech has collapsed and the University of Denver is the team to beat.

    Locks: 59
    Bubble and Fringe: 21
    With 59 locks, that leaves only 9 spots for 21 Bubble and Fringe teams.

    Hoks put themselves in a tough spot. While they may be at this moment one of the best 68 teams in the country. Under the formula they killed themselves with the non conference slate.

    Andy Glockner ‏@AndyGlockner Man, Oklahoma-Iowa State in the early quarterfinal on Thursday? That's a big bubble game. Loser may get quite nervous.

    I know I am not an expert, but even if ISU does lose handily to Oklahoma on Thursday, I can't see us falling past one of those First Four games in Dayton. I really do feel like that's the worst-case scenario here.

    If OU-ISU is a bubble-elimination game, the field shrank from 68 to about 60, and nobody told me.

    I don't see Baylor getting in over ISU or OU (unless they win the tourney). I don't think the Big12 gets only 4 teams in or do they get 6 (unless Baylor wins the tourney).

    Since ISU and OU swept Baylor......there is no way Baylor should leap frog either.

    Re: ***Official 2013 Bracketology Thread***

    The fact that MTSU is only two teams out from the last 4 in, they have a decent chance to get into the tournament. They just need help from hapless bubble teams.

    With the reg season over, teams are more likely to be improving their stock than hurting it.

    Maybe....a weak bubble team going out in the first round of their tournament doesn't help their chances.

    Yes, it isn't like that would be a bad loss for either team. No idea why a loss would hurt OU or ISU.

    I'm fearful they could screw BIG 12 and take 4... so if OK beats us first round, could we be toast?


    The Hawkeyes, who have lost six of their last seven games, were given a No. 11 seed and will be involved in one of the four first-round games by virtue of being one of the last four at-large teams to make the field. “It’s not a &%#$@%* play-in game!’’ McCaffery said when a reporter phrased it that way. McCaffery then hurled a bottle of G2 into the face of the reporter stating "you #$%*&@ idiot!".

    Re: ***Official 2013 Bracketology Thread***

    A lot of people said that if we beat Okie State we would be in the tourney for sure, we beat them and then beat WVU and now we are a bubble team? We were a bubble team after beating Okie State but going into that game the magic number was always 2 wins to be a lock. They can say whatever we want but we are in even if we lose by 30 Thursday
