greatest post in IMS history came from 286...think about that one for a second.
ps I have hogie saved on auto correct
I don't see the committee giving them a pass for missing Jontel Evans. If it was Joe Harris then yeah, but not Evans.
Really? No one got the sarcasm? That was posted immediately after he drove straight to the baseline and just kept running out of bounds with .4 seconds left.
Pretty much my thoughts exactly. They're probably still in as of right now but they are most certainly on very very thin ice.
Well I just saw that post so I missed the timing. Plus, a UVA fan was legitimately arguing that a few weeks ago in this thread. My bad!
LOLundari doesn't have them in the last four in, so I think they are pretty solid for now. Let's hope they keep losing though, at least lose to us.
Jerry Palm's Friday bracket had them in the First 4 Out. As of right now they're in a shaky spot.
LOL at this setting up for the most Maryland of Maryland teases...
Jerry Palm's been pretty clearly in the minority in looking at our resume recently, so you have to take that with a grain of salt.
For the record, I don't at all disagree that we're on thin ice. Fortunately for us, so many bubble teams were terrible this weekend.
BPI projections have us as literally the last team in as of last night. (Thanks UConn!)
45 Baylor Big 12 6 75.2 In - Projected At Large 44 11
46 California Pac-12 5 75.2 In - Projected At Large 45 12
47 Stanford Pac-12 6 75.0 In - Projected At Large 46 12*
48 La Salle A 10 3 74.7 In - Projected At Large 47 12*
49 Boise St MWC 5 74.4 In - Projected At Large 48 12*
50 Akron MAC 1 74.3 In - Projected Auto Bid 49 12
51 Belmont OVC 1 74.1 In - Projected Auto Bid 50 13
52 Maryland ACC 6 73.6 In - Projected At Large 51 12*
Wow. That's a real Marshmallow's Row.
BPI also has Butler as the first team "out" which is just not happening
that projection also has Illinois as pretty solidly out so i'm not sure how reliable a metric it is.
You lost me at BPI
This will be 2008 all over again. Everyone will say "Beat BC in the first round of the ACC tournament and Maryland should be in." And we all know how that story ends. Heartbreak and a run in with the bouncer at my favorite bar.
Here's my take on the bubble:
Last 8 IN: Wichita State, Iowa State, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, La Salle, Saint Mary's, Boise State
First 8 OUT: Maryland, Arkansas, Baylor, Alabama, Ole Miss, Iowa, Providence, Southern Miss, Xavier
I also think Lunardi's is pre-BC, right? At least the one on espn.com. Has UVA as a 10 with an ^...no way can they be "moving up" after that loss...
Yes, but ESPN "went to" him during NCSt half time and he said the BC loss still doesn't put them in last 4 in. They're getting a lot of mileage out of the Duke win.
Looks good, I'd put Baylor ahead of Arkansas, Kentucky behind La Salle and Boise State.
I just have no idea what to do with Virginia. A win on Wednesday gives us much more of a case to compare against that first group.

The Duke game is obviously huge but no one on the bubble is going to touch OOC wins at Wisconsin and Tennessee. The losses are obviously ridiculous but wins are always more important. Usually theres not such an extensive list of both good wins and really bad losses.

Kentucky is one I have no real feel for. They're judged without Noel. They're 3-2 without him losing to two SEC bubblers, but they also beat Mizzou. May need to beat Florida in Rupp to close the season, but @UGA isn't a gimme.
I have a hard time seeing a way for Kentucky to get in without beating Florida in the finale or UF/Mizzou again in the SECT.

They probably will be on the other side of the bracket from those two with Alabama in their semifinal.
