Bracketeering 2012: Time for bubbles to burst

  • Print

Power conference tournaments have begun and in all six major conferences there are bubbles that will burst over the next three days.  Already it looks like Seton Hall is in trouble while other bubble teams like Texas, Oregon and Mississippi State face can't-lose games today.  Here's my stab at the field as of Thursday afternoon:


Locks (29): Baylor, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Georgetown, Gonzaga, Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Purdue, San Diego State, Syracuse, Temple, UNLV, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Wichita State, Wisconsin

Should Be In (8): Alabama, Cincinnati, Connecticut, New Mexico, South Florida, Southern Miss, St Louis, West Virginia

Bubble Teams (22): Arizona, BYU, California, Central Florida, Colorado State, Drexel, Iona, Long Beach State, Miami, Middle Tennessee, Mississippi State, Nevada, NC State, Northwestern, Oral Roberts, Oregon, Seton Hall, St Joseph's, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Xavier

Automatic Bids (15): Belmont, Creighton, Davidson, Detroit, Harvard, Lehigh, LIU-Brooklyn, Loyola, MD, Montana, Murray State, South Dakota State, St Mary's, UNC-Asheville, VCU, Western Kentucky 


Also I'll be hosting Sports Central tonight and Friday so tne in for more NCAA talk and so much more.
