Notes:

  1. Bubble games yesterday:
    1. Kansas St won, I give them a 90% to be in, another W gives them lock status
    2. Xavier won, they are a lock now
    3. Michigan won wearing practice jerseys, they are a lock. Illinois is out with the L.
    4. Seton Hall beat Marquette possibly putting them on the 9 line, which might be worse than the 10 line. Both are locks to me.
    5. Cal won giving them hope yet.
    6. Iowa lost ending their hopes.
    7. Providence lost. I still think they’re safe.
    8. USC barely lost to UCLA. I think the Trojans are safe.
  2. Bubble games today:
    1. Kansas St vs W Virginia (W and ‘Cats are a lock)
    2. St Bonaventure vs Rhode Island (Rams can’t lose)
    3. Indiana vs Wisconsin (I think Hoosiers have outside chance at playing way in if they can get to B10 final)
    4. TCU vs Iowa St (I give TCU the same small chance as Indiana)
    5. Vandy at Florida (3 wins against the Gators should do it, and L leaves them anxious)
    6. Cal vs Oregon (W and Cal is in, L and I don’t think so)
  3. Providence and Syracuse have remarkably similar resumes:
    1. ProvSyra Comp
    2. I think they’ll be the last two in.
  4. Middle Tennessee might get in as an at large if they lose.
  5. Auto bids today:
    1. None
