Friday: Georgia vs. Kentucky and the NCAA bubble
Look, I'll synthesize my thoughts on where things stand very quickly:
- Win today, and I believe Georgia is in the tournament, barring a bunch of upsets elsewhere.
- Lose, and the Bulldogs are probably out, barring a break from the committee.
If you don't want to take my word for it, I checked with bracketologist Shelby Mast of USA Today, who has Georgia as his second team out as of Friday morning. Mast has consistently been higher on Georgia's chances than other major analysts. I asked him why:
"For me, overall strength of schedule and non-conference is solid, only one 'bad' loss, lots of close games," Mast said. "Just wondering how the committee will value those, clock game vs TAMU might be a factor. Good amount of 51-100 wins too."
Georgia's RPI rank is 50 as of Friday morning. It likely wouldn't take a big hit with a loss to Kentucky. But at this point even a close loss to Kentucky will just reinforce Georgia's current resume. If you believe the national experts, the Bulldogs need today to change that and get in the field.
We'll see if they can do it. Check here for regular updates and analysis.
