Yesterday was by far the best day of the season for Penn State. They picked up a top 20 RPI win and watched all other bubble teams fall in some major upsets (VT losing to UVA, Butler falling to Milwaukee) or tough games (Providence losing to Louisville, Miami losing to FSU, and ND basically being eliminated by WVU). All in all it was the perfect night. We now officially have a better resume than Kentucky (better record, RPI, and SOS).
Let's keep the mojo going tonight with these games:
Minnesota vs. Mich: If the Gophers win, Michigan is on the brink of elimination, which opens up a spot that was taken just 2 or 3 weeks ago. Go Minny.
Wazzou vs. USC: USC is sliding bigtime, a loss here would also but them on the brink, so root for the Cougs hard, because USC does have an easier schedule coming up.
Sand Diego vs. St. Mary's: SD is a solid club, and another loss for the Mills-less Gaels could eliminate them unless they win the WCC. Once again, they were a shoe-in just 2 weeks ago before Mills went down, so this opens up another spot.
(Note Saturday is a huge week not to play. Having a bye may be the best thing for us as so many bubble teams have tough games or potential elimination games.
