NCAA tournament 2011: Memphis, Boston College among last four in
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Big East (11 teams)
Big 12 (6)
Big Ten (5)
Atlantic 10 (3)
Conference USA (2)
