The bubble is going to be very interesting this year. Tennessee and Kentucky might have knocked themselves out with losses and Ole Miss can still do the same later tonight. Bama probably needs one more win, too. The SEC could be looking at two teams, which might equal the number of Sun Belt teams in the tourney. Wow. 

Iowa St. and Oklahoma are probably good in the Big XII, but a couple ACC teams are living on the edge. Virginia had a big loss today, which puts them right around the cut line I believe. And Maryland made it two in a row over Duke (while becoming the first team to beat the invincible Ryan Kelly), which gives them a chance at a spot if they can win tomorrow, most likely over UNC.

It seems like there are a whole lot of mid major teams on the bubble. Boise, La Salle, Middle Tenn., and even Southern Miss have pretty good arguments over some of these major teams. Selection Sunday should be really interesting. There will be one team that takes over Va Tech's place of being the "snub" and one team that is like Air Force a couple years back that confuses everyone.
