From my view, three (Georgia, Boston College and Clemson) teams on this list have very strong arguments to be in the tourney, two don't.  My guess is Lunardi either is placing way too a high a value on being in the ACC or he thinks Georgia will lose on Thursday.  Or both.

One last thing, a great place I have been keeping up with the bracketology is Stat Junkie.  They got the field 100% last year and have Georgia listed as the highest of the 'bubble in' teams.  They have Boston College right under them in the 'bubble in' teams, as well.  They have Clemson and Colrado as a 'bubble out.'  They don't mention Va Tech at all.  

Unless Georgia loses to Auburn, they are in the NCAA tournament, absent multiple crazy nonsense Tornado tournament style upsets in the major conferences.  Even with the loss, they could get in, depending on what happens around the country.

  1. Thanks for the props, Exile. I agree about the three teams you listed (UGA, BC, Clem.). I tend to think BC is probably the next most deserving alongside UGA.
