Virginia Tech loses at home to Boston College. ACC is in trouble. Virginia, Miami, Duke, and NC State are in good shape, but beyond that Pitt is the only team that can have any confidence, though mainly because they've done enough and have an easy schedule from here on out. UNC, Clemson, and Va Tech are all sliding in the wrong direction. Depending on how it finishes, it could be a 4-5 bid league.

The Big 12 has been the beneficiary of the subpar years from the ACC and Big 10.

Not really.  It’s head and shoulders the best conference in the nation

Penn State playing themselves off the bubble by trailing to UW at half.

Said on TV, Penn State has lost 16 of 18 between the 2 schools.  Penn State can't really afford to pick up a Q3 loss.

On the upside, if Penn State loses to Wisconsin, it won't be Q3 by morning.

Tennessee loses because they chose not to take an open layup to go up 4 with 15 seconds left.  Guy dribbled it out to waste time and get fouled.

They missed the front end. (11-12) Vanderbilt hits a 3 at the buzzer for the win.

Thanks, Vandy!  You saved me from getting a lot of sh!t from my family when I visit them in a few weeks!
Have some patience, FFS.

Penn State falls deeper down the bubble talk.

UW gets the road win to put them probably in every bracketologists field as of now.

Should move Marquettes lone Q3 loss back to a Q2 loss

Or, it's quite conceivable both B14 teams are on the bubble.

Words can’t describe the first half of SDSU/USU. Took nearly 80 minutes to play the first half, atrocious officiating (John Higgins working his 13th game in 16 nights in 11 different states). 4 technicals, an ejection, Pete Gilles somehow saying three other ejections (???) and being awful with no information, clock issues. It’s something else, and still another half to go. CBS Sports Net giving zero info on the ridiculous ejection.

I agree with this. Wisconsin is up to 6 Q1 wins. If they can beat the 4 non-tourney teams (@ Nebraska, Michigan, @ Michigan, @ Minnesota) left on their schedule, that should be enough. If they get one of the tourney teams (Rutgers, Iowa, Purdue) they still have too it makes them a virtual lock.

I feel a bit bad for Penn State, though. I'd like to see them in the field. Pickett is a heck of a player and they are nothing like the typical Big 10 team. If there's anyone in the bubble range that can go First Four to Final Four this year, my money would be on the Nittany Lions.

Well, you have said lots of things about how wonderful their program is over the last many months, including your erroneous (and oft-repeated) claim that they "always get it done."

But I don't think that means you're a Madison fan; you just give them a little too much respect. It's not 2015 any more, and Frank Kaminsky isn't walking through that door.

Maryland (28) and USC(50) barely in Q1.  Badgers haven't beaten a team in the field since Dec. 11 at Iowa when Kris Murray was out due to injury.  Bad analytics.

Badgers still in a very precarious position.  Honestly, they shot the lights out last night and still needed OT to win.  Wouldn't be surprised if they go 3-4 down the stretch.

If Wisconsin somehow gets into the tourney and wins a game and Marquette doesn’t—I may take a LONG break from Scoop because it will truly be Hiroshima.

I haven't said anything about their program in a positive light aside from "they always seem to get it done".

And that still could be true. Their team is A$$ and yet they still would likely be in today. How? I have no idea.

In the last month, both Maryland and USC have moved up into Q1. Those wins are improving with age. When they beat Iowa is completely irrelevant. And OT doesn't matter at all.

Not saying they're safe, but 4-3 is likely in, 5-2 would be a virtual lock. For better or worse, their win over us on the road is something very few bubble teams can claim.

Well there was that.  And there was the whole crying from the mountaintops that they're better than MU for as long as you possibly could until you'd have been completely clowned for the take anymore.  And now there's a single ray of sunlight for the first time in a long time and you're back raving about the Badgers.  So congrats to you!

I'm not sure how being one of the last teams in the field is "always getting it done."  But hey, you do you.

Hepburn 1/7 from 2. Now at 33.3% on his 2FGAs. Amazing. He tries about 7 times per game. What a disgusting team. Go blue x2.

I'm aware of all of that. 5-2 is a lock. 4-3 might be enough, depending on what other bubble teams do and how many bid thieves there are.

I'm just skeptical they can go 4-3 or better. Their last 4 conference wins have been a terrible Minnesota, a dumpster fire Ohio State, and two close wins against mediocre Penn State.  Let's see how they perform against Purdue, Rutgers, and Iowa.

I enjoy Scoop Hiroshima. It is the only good thing when MU loses.
