Thursday was good for bubble teams, unless you were one of those bubble teams. But hey, a new day, a chance to hate a team you have no connection to. Here is what to watch and who to root against while you're watching.
NC State vs Virginia, 2:00 EST, ESPN2: Somehow we live in a world where Virginia is a bubble team. But I'm not here to comment on the ridiculous way we choose our field of
64 68, I'm here to hate. So, if you're a bubble team not named Virginia, then you really want NC State to win this game. Bracket Matrix has the Hoos as the 2nd team out, and Lunardi has them as the 2nd to last team in.
Butler vs La Salle, 2:30: Another huge game for bubble implications. La Salle is the next to last team in at Bracket Matrix, and a win over Butler might be just enough to make their fans feel safe.
Tennessee vs Alabama, 3:00, ESPNU: Uggh, a bubble-off. Who to root for depends on what happens next. A loss and either is probably out. A win puts Bama in the headier position currently occupied by Tennessee. Whichever team you feel cannot win two, root for that one.no comments
