The conference games are still in progress, and Maryland and and Florida have had their bubble burst. They’re not coming to the show (and I can hear the wails of despair coming from College Park all the way from my house). In the Big East, Syracuse is most likely out (but they still have a small chance left) and Villanova is most likely in (but there is a small chance that their bubble bursts too).

From SIs Stewart Mandel:

You may have noticed these updates haven’t exactly been brimming with positive developments by bubble hopefuls so far, and Thursday night was more of the same. Oregon (against Washington State) and Arizona (against Stanford) couldn’t pull off potential deal-sealing upsets, Massachusetts (against Charlotte), New Mexico (against Utah in overtime) and Ole Miss (against Georgia) suffered devastating setbacks, and both Maryland (lost to Boston College) and Florida (lost to Alabama) fell off the board for good.

The only good news for teams like those above, as well as Villanova and Arizona State, is that no one has yet stepped up to take their place.

In Other Words, so far so good!

Students on campuses (campii?) all over the nation are turning blue as they hold their breath in anticipation.
