The irish are in either way.

I figure they are the 6th or 7th last team in right now. It would take solid runs from everybody below them as well as 6 teams on the outside looking in for them to lose their spot.

No way this happens particularly with Butler, Northern Iowa, Sienna, etc... all taking care of business.

Joe...I agree...im not sure why everybody is so quick to say we wont get in...we have done everything right the past month....and i honestly believe ending hot and beating 4 ranked teams is better than SH...even if they did beat us....Joe LIndardi who picked 63 of 64 last year doesnt even have us on last 4 in...

The bubble is so weak this year....Illinois and Florida pretty much need to win it all and that wont happen....San Diego needs to win the tourney to get in....and Arizona State plays Washington in Semi's who are both on the bubble....

Unless something crazy happens...we are in....but a win tonight would sure be lovely!

GO IRISH!
