Official Bubble Watch Thread

Man it feels good to be able to make one of these threads again, been a few years since it was needed...I'm hopeful these young Vols keep things interesting and provide a reason to keep this thread busy over the next month or more.

I will post all sorts of info in this thread, in the past we've done daily games to watch with impact, links to brackets as they're updated, my own personal bubble list, RPI and KenPom updates and anything else that's relevant to Tennessee's chances of dancing.

If TN doesn't at least get a split out of the next two, this thread will die an ugly death. Unless you talkin' 'bout the NIT bubble.

Not necessarily true. At 12-9 we must hit 18 regular season wins no matter how. The two losses we can't take would be Missouri and LSU. They're like ranked in the 200s RPI.

To keep things probable they need to split, however 0-2 wouldn't be the end of the road.

Really need to take this road game against Auburn. Personally I think it will be a tougher game than Miss St away.

Auburn away and coming off a 27 point drubbing is much more difficult than MSU away IMO. Pearl factor is an intangible aspect that must be considered too.

If you're gonna split then lose to Auburn, they likely finish with a top 100 RPI, Mississippi State may not so avoiding a bad loss would be in our best interest.
