Right now the bubble is looking pretty weak. Finding that 68th team that deserves to be in the field is impossible. For now it is Clemson who has played their way into the tournament following their first big win of the season against Virginia Tech on Saturday. The Tigers do have a decent RPI and that will not go away, but before beating the Hokies they had to hang their hat on wins over Lipscomb and South Carolina. That should not be enough to get an ACC team in the tournament, although Lipscomb is a very good team. But there are opportunities for Clemson to grab more quality wins. More importantly though, the Tigers must beat teams like Miami, who they play on Wednesday.
