Simple look at the P5 standings verifies that. ESPN's bubble watch today lists 38 teams as either "Should be in" 18 teams including Cuse) or "Work to do" (20 teams) and calculates 33 spots for these 38 teams. By that analysis only 5 of the 38 will fail to make the tournament. We could go 2 - 5 and make the field as a 10 seed.We are not a bubble team this year. Why do people keep regurgitating this false talking point? We aren’t even close to the bubble. We’re safely in the field today by a comfortable margin - an 8 seed in most projections, with a shot at climbing to the 7 line after this weekend.
Unless we go 0-7 to finish this season, we will not be on the bubble. And if, by some crazy chance, we do end up there... we have the best road win in the country, among several other strong road wins.
That being said, I'm still hoping for a strong enough finish to get to a 6 and earn a Hartford - D.C. path to Minneapolis!
