NCAA tournament 2011: Memphis, Boston College among last four in

By Eric Prisbell

Two notes: If you are running an office pool or a pool for friends -- or know someone who is -- and there is confusion about how to deal with the additional play-in games this season, I encourage you to send me an e-mail at prisbelle@washpost.com. I'd like to hear from you.

Also, I will be joining Tracee Hamilton for an online chat Thursday at 11 a.m. I encourage you to ask tons of questions about teams, seeds, bracketology, picks, etc. Thanks a lot.

On to the bubble watch...

The bar continues to be lowered for bubble teams, as a number of them -- Alabama, Penn State, Baylor -- took steps backward Tuesday. I'm tweaking my entire field as I write and will post that soon. I may post a daily tournament field update now, including on Saturday and Sunday.

Last four in:

Memphis: Do I trust this team? Not a chance.
Richmond: This team actually beat Purdue a million years ago.
Colorado: The non-league schedule was fluff, but this team can beat good teams.
Boston College: The Eagles passed the eye test Tuesday.

First four out:
Michigan: Buzzer-beater vs. Wisconsin may haunt them.
Clemson: Will get a chance to prove themselves.
Minnesota: This team does not deserve a bid.
Nebraska: Doc Sadler's team not dead yet.

Multi-bid leagues
Big East (11 teams)
Big 12 (6)
SEC (5)
Big Ten (5)
ACC (5)
Pac-10 (3)
Atlantic 10 (3)
MWC (3)
Horizon (2)
CAA (2)
WCC (2)
Conference USA (2)

68 IS A JOKE!!!

It now becomes obvious, it was just a scam by the big boys to get rid of more small conference teams before the "real tournament" (round of 64) begins!

NCAA is counting on Memphis, Richmond, Colorado and BC to defeat the respective 13-16 seeds, which are coincidentally always the small conference winners.

This is a scam pure and simple folks.
