I'm saying that even IF (a big if), we win ten games in the B.E. and maybe one game in NYC, that we will definitely be on the bubble, and a weak non conference schedule will not help us. I think it will be a tough road for us.

With 5 games left this game with Providence was very important - a game I felt that we had the best chance to win given the remaining opponents ND goes against - Marquette & Louisville looks like a mountain to climb to split that. After todays performance Cinncy & St John(who beat us already) look formitable. I'm not feeling real positive about our tourney chances BUT if they CAN play out like they did against Louisville they'll be in it. So the question is - do they deserve to be in it? - well how bad do they WANT it? GO IRISH!

I don't follow basketball that closely but it doesn't make sense to me that a top 25 team would not field one of the top 65 spots in a tourney
The "best 65" don't necessarily get in. There are 30-something automatic bids to conference winners, many of them from the mid-major level such as the Patriot League and others, so there are about 32 or so more at-large bids. So if you fall out amongst the 30 or so, you are "on the bubble."
For example, Kentucky was No. 25 last week, but after its blowout loss at Tennessee on Saturday, it is now on the "last four teams out" of the NCAA Tournament" in ESPN's "bracketology."
