ACC Bubble Analysis for January 28, 2013

bubble

This week was defiantly the toughest ACC Bubble Analysis yet. Is Duke still a number 1 seed? Should Miami be ahead of them? Does the ACC deserve 3,4,5 or 6 Bids if the selections were this week? In my ranking system, any RPIw top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any …

What? A Big 12 ACC alliance in the works? Just as we all didn’t expect.

NolesSooners

There’s a reason I stay away from rampant speculation about conference realignment. Do you want to know that reason? It’s because 99.5% of the rumors you hear aren’t close to actual reality. Check out any random school message board or follow twitter for a couple of days and you’ll see rumors so wide ranging there …

Harris2

Another edition of our bubble analysis. With only 7 weeks remaining until selection Sunday, as many as 8 ACC teams still have a shot at what I think will end up being 5-6 ACC bids. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth …
