BYU's Bubble

This year's NCAA Tournament selection is going to be a roller-coaster. There are at least 20 teams fighting on the bubble right now, and yes BYU is right in the thick of it. Lunardi has them in, Lunardi has them out, Lunardi has them in.

We Cougar fans might need to embrace this year's team as an NIT squad. Damn! That 6 year streak was looking good, too. And then, perhaps not.

BYU may play themselves out of the bubble picture or into the tourney (with a win over Zags at home and/or Gaels on the road). And then, they could steal the WCC tournament. They're streaky... anything's possible.

Whether they are in or out, it's going to be fun following the bracketology this year. So of course, I'm releasing a better-than-Lunardi bracket that I will update up to selection day.

Enjoy! And go Cougars!

Comments? What do you hate? What do you love? Who did I miss? Take the poll and vote on who doesn't deserve to be in the bracket.

Check out The Bracket Matrix/@bracketproject on twitter. This bracket will be included in an average with dozens of others (including Lunardi) to give the most objective bracket prediction on the web! In a week or so I'll update this baby.

(By the way, BYU fairs better on the matrix than on mine. Go figure!)
