NCAA tournament 2011: A look at the soft bubble
I still have Minnesota in at the moment (I'll take a closer look at the Golden Gophers tonight) and I continue to give Alabama the SEC automatic berth to make my life easier, so here is how my bubble looks, loaded with ACC teams:
Six of these teams likely would make the 68-team tournament as of today:
Not quite free fall. Yet.
Is a bland resume good enough this season?
Lost four games by four points or less
Five sub-100 RPI losses
Hanging its hat on the Xavier win
Hanging its hat on the Purdue win
Let me know when they get a top 50 win
Beat Michigan State and Harvard
Can't beat BYU, San Diego State. Not many can.
So there may be room in the field for the Terps if they can win a few more games, but it would really help if they can get a true quality win - their story all season.
