We are planted firmly on the bubble right now, so let's use this post to keep an eye on them that needs to lose for our benefit.
First, this bracket prediction aggregator is a good site to bookmark:
As you can see, the consensus has us as the first team out right now, though several brackets have us in. Now, here is who we need to root against, 9 seeds or below plus struggling UConn:
UConn, Kansas State, Alabama, Iowa State, Memphis, New Mexico, Notre Dame, Purdue, Cal, Saint Louis, Seton Hall, Minnesota, Cinncinnati, BYU, Washington, Xavier, Colorado State (forgive me Steven!),
And fellow bubble backsliders who "received votes" in this round
Northwestern, Dayton (sorry Arch), Arkansas, Ole Miss, Arizona, Wyoming, St. Joe's, Central Florida, Pitt,
I removed Miami and Texas given that they both count as good wins for us.
I will try to keep this updated as the season progresses.
