    Some early losses are looking a lot worse on ‘Bama’s NCAA resume.

      Bubble Watch is back to help make sense of the movement on the NCAA tournament bubble. The busiest action can be found in the ACC and the SEC. Locks are few and far between.

          Another good one:

          Alabama is 10-8 against AP-ranked opponents under CAJ. We had a 21-game losing streak prior to his hiring.

            To be sure, still think we need 20 wins and a decent showing in the SEC tourney. We've had some great wins in the last couple of weeks but some dumb ass losses too.

                Saw yesterday where this year they are 5-1 against ranked, yet 11-8 against non-ranked. Jekyll & Hyde team.

                  There is no magic number for wins. Technically as long as you are .500 or better you are eligible for the NCAAs as an at large. Given that the bubble is a steaming pile of doggie doo right now, unless we lose out, we are probably in the tournament. As a fan base, we are fixated on a win total which has nothing to do with the NCAA selection process. 20 wins doesn't guarantee anything if you didn't beat anyone noteworthy. We have high quality wins that unless we fall apart are going to outweigh the awful losses (of which there are only 2 or 3 depending on your feelings on Ole Miss and whether Minnesota should be looked at differently since the kicked the best player off the team). We are solidly in the tournament now and are strictly playing for seeding going forward. I might rather get a 10 or 11 seed than an 8 or 9 just to help out the draw.

                    Of course 7 or above would be ideal but I'm not sure we can get there with the bad losses.

                      We've been upgraded to "Should Be In" status on ESPN's Bubble Watch. Of course, that will change once we lose to LSU today so we can lose all of our momentum once again.
                      The NCAA tournament selection committee released its initial top 16 seeds this weekend, which gave Bubble Watch a chance to clear a few teams off the bubble and into lock status.

                        I don't think that an 11 is that much worse than a 7, if any. The winner of the 7/10 matchup has to play a 2 seed the second round. I'd rather be an 11 than an 8/9 and have to play a 1 seed the second round.

                            Oh I agree with you. One problem with being an 11 is the potential chance of getting stuck in the First Four.

                              Thanks to everyone else stinking up the joint, we might be able to lose out and still make the tournament.
