Bubble Watch is Here

No, not my own Bubble Watch, but ESPN's version.

Since I love reading it and debating it, and mostly to get the live blog of the Worst Game of All-TimeTM off the top, I'm posting it here.

Want a Preview? The Gophers fall into the "Should be in" category in the Big Ten along with Illinois, Purdue, and Ohio State, with Michigan State being the only lock for the conference.

Minnesota [17-4 (6-4), RPI: 24, SOS: 52] Minnesota fans have to be laughing at their Kentucky counterparts, many of whom couldn't wait to chase coach Tubby Smith out of town. The Gophers are 6-4 in the Big Ten after getting routed by 29 points at Michigan State on Wednesday night. Minnesota still might need only one more signature victory to secure an at-large bid. A victory over Louisville carries a lot of weight, along with wins over Ohio State, Penn State and Illinois.

And with that, I'm out of here and likely won't be posting while I'm in Utah - although anything is possible. Hopefully Sidler, Snake, Optimator, Snacks, and Dawger can keep things interesting while I'm gone. And Dawg, make sure and post a recap of the Ohio State game since I won't be able to watch it.
