In sum, ESPN says that our lousy 1-5 record against the RPI top 50 is really going to hurt our chances but a road win in one of our final two road games OR a sweep of our last three home games should put us over the top. On the road, I don't see us beating North Carolina but a win against Virginia Tech is entirely feasible. As for the three game home stretch of Miami,
If ESPN's analysis is correct, then this team is actually sitting fairly pretty right now all things considered. This is a lot better than what I thought our tournament chances would be so I'm happy that we seem to have an inside track to a spot in the tournament.
I've said it about 100 times by now but I still really don't see this team making the tournament because I firmly believe that we are going to find a way to mess this up. Hey, who am I to disagree with ESPN though?
