    Bubbles keep popping

    With Butler going down that takes a bid away. Baylor beating Kansas gets baylor half way toward stealing a bid. They are playing like the team ranked earlier this year. Miami got thumped in the ACC today. Now if KSU beats texas they will have to win it to get in since KU got beat. Providence getting beat by UL there went their chances as well. DOES ANYONE WANT TO PLAY IN THE NCAA'S THIS YEAR?

    Re: Bubbles keep popping

    This is exactly why I want to see some of the smaller schools that are on the bubble make it in. Say, Davidson.

    The bigger schools on the bubble have done hardly anything to earn it the rest of the year.

    I hope Creighton and St. Mary's get in. As long as New Mexico doesn't because they beat no one worth anything away from home

    Baylor isn't that close to an at large bid. They've been pretty bad all year.

    Re: Bubbles keep popping

    half way means 2 more wins which is correct




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: Bubbles keep popping

    Davidson better not get in. If they get in, it will be SOLELY because of Stephen Curry's popularity. I would rather see their bid go to a middle-of-the-pack high major that is actually talented and played a real conference schedule.

    Yeah, because if the committee takes, say, Kentucky over Davidson, it'll have nothing to do with the popularity of Kentucky

    We need New Mexico in the tournament, as Cyclone fans. Steve Alford did what none of us could do, destroyed Iowa basketball!! Now he's sticking it to them again by going someplace else and being successful.

    Sorry, I forgot that Baylor already had two Big 12 tourney wins. That, and I can't do math.
