Final Look at Bubble Teams for 2009 and Projecting the NCAA Tourney Field.
This will likely be the last update, beside editing for the Big Ten champion.
Mississippi State IN
Florida or Auburn OUT, I don't think both get in. I had Florida ranked higher than Auburn, but I like Auburn's play as of late, it will be tough to keep both in. It will have to be one of the two to be knocked out.
LAST FOUR IN:
|San Diego State|
LAST SIX OUT:
