The NCAA Tournament bubble is as big this year as it’s ever been. With so many teams fulfilling so many different criteria in different ways (it’s how Colgate is totally going to miss the tournament but end up No. 9 in the NET rankings) it’s almost impossible to predict what the committee will do. And that’s before the bid thieves in several multi-bid leagues step up and grab a spot from the rest of the field.
If you’re interested in the bubble, or your favorite team is there themselves and you want to see what you’re up against, we’ve got you covered.
