Back for more torture.NC State has no shot at an at-large bid, right? Think again. After the Miami win, we are third in the "last four out" per Joe Lunardi:
And even before the win, we were just on the right side of the bubble according to the historically fairly accurate Dance Card:
So let's hop back on the roller coaster. Teams to watch and root against:
3 Big East teams with losing conference records: Seton Hall, West Virginia, UConn 2 other Big East teams who had big wins last night: Cincinnati and South Florida
3 mediocre Pac-12 teams: Washington, Arizona, Oregon
3 questionable A-10 teams: Xavier, Dayton, St. Joe's (Phil Martelli is a jerk, so you should root against St. Joe's anyway).
Others, in rough order of bubble safety: BYU, Miss. State, Texas, Northwestern, Miami, Colorado State, VCU, Colorado, Illinois, Central Florida.
