Bubble Update: Where we are with three days to go …

Welcome to Bracketville

Three days until Selection Sunday.  Several bubble teams collapsed Thursday.  A couple actually won.  Where does that leave us?  It looks like there are six (6) openings left.  Due to several important bubble games on Friday, I’ve decided to delay our next bracket projection until Saturday morning – March 13.  For now, here’s the latest bubble update …

March 12 Bubble Banter

Huge day in the Atlantic 10.  With Memphis and UAB both losing Thursday, at least one spot is likely available.  Rhode Island, St. Louis, and Dayton are all in the mix.  It’s very possible the A-10 could still end up with five bids.  Also a big day in the Big 10 … Illinois must beat Wisconsin and Minnesota has to upset Michigan State.  In the SEC …. Mississippi and Mississippi State have critical games.   Then, in the Mountain West … San Diego State gets New Mexico.  Hard to ask for a lot more meaningful action.

Who benefitted Thursday?  Utah State is now in good position to earn an at-large, if needed.  UTEP moved into our Should Be In category and is a win away from Lock status.  Washington won its quarterfinal with Oregon State and now has a clear path (Stanford) to the Pac-10 title game.  Of course, a loss to the Cardinal wouldn’t be advised.  Making the final will probably be enough. 

It really comes do what happens in the Big 10, SEC and A-10.  Those leagues still have bid stealers – or at least teams that can play their way in.  If more bubble teams keep losing, then some teams who’ve already lost could be back in play.  We do have to take 34 at-large teams.
