Who are the bubble teams Tennessee needs to keep an eye on?
If you've got time to read this, it tells pretty much everything you need to know about what we need to happen this week. If you don't want to read the whole thing, skip to the bottom for the basic conclusions of who you should root for.
Where is Tennessee in the bubble picture? Who are they rooting for and against this week? Too much information, right here.
Wow...Golden has a real wrinkly head in that picture!
BTW - +1 on the link. That is an excellent article.

Thanks smasher! +1
For those of us who don't have the time (or the memory) to follow all the teams we need to, anyone willing to add updates to this thread of what happened vs. what we need to happen? Would give major +1's to anyone who could!!
Sure, so far St. Mary's, Wichita St., and MTSU have already played and lost. If cincy lost today then they could of been pushed back to the bubble and knocked Tennessee out, but they didn't. I'll come back here and update accordingly. (in honor of the new Pope)
Need to cheer for UNLV and Stanford in the day games today... AIf the Air Force beat UNLV followed by another good team they may get in...
They've beaten New Mexico, UNLV, Boise St, and San Diego State. If they win 2 I'd think they get in.
Many thanks guys!
Teams like Alabama, UT, Kentucky and Ole Miss will be ones to watch in the SEC Tournament this week.
Your team. All the time.
I don't see Bama getting in unless they beat Tennessee and Florida. Their resume stinks really. Ole Miss is the one I'm really worried about. I want to see UK lose, but that is one of Tennessee's top 50 wins... Kentucky is barely on that 50 line.... That's a win/loss situation for Tennessee if they get bounced by a bad team.
Just to update. Arizona State beat Stanford tonight and UNLV beat Air Force. If im not mistaken, Stanford was a bubble team. Also, Colorado won, who is a bubble team.
Just checked ESPN Bubble watch and Arizona State is a bubble team with 21 wins but a loss to DePaul who has a 201 RPI and USC who has a 100 RPI. Colorado shouldn't be a bubble team so that win is alright. We need Arizona State to lose in their next game. Villanova won tonight, who is definitely on the bubble. It goes without saying that they need to lose to their next game against Louisville. If they win, they will have beaten Georgetown and Louisville, who are both in the top 10, in the past 2 weeks. Tennessee can't compete against that.
Villanova is IN! Move on to the next. They've beaten GTown, Louisville, Syracuse, Marquette, Uconn... Teams with 11 Big East wins and 5 RPI top 50 wins don't miss the tournament.

Agreed Drizz, Nova is definitely in without winning another game.
I agree. I think Arizona State and Colorado are the biggest threats besides the obvious teams in the SEC. If Tennessee wins tomorrow and can beat Alabama they are in. However, this isn't news to anyone. A little off topic but Texas A&M is looking pretty good early against Auburn. They are a dangerous team to get on a roll.
Boise State is another one to watch. Playing San Diego State tonight. They are on the bubble. They win tonight they are a lock.
