UPDATED 3/12 at 5:30pm ET
Lots of action, and as promised, here is another update. There have not been too many changes, but the bubble is shrinking. We are starting to get to the point where teams are getting solidified and we can look more closely at seeding. Also, there should be a bubble watch from today coming out in the next couple minutes for you guys. I know that’s the same thing I wrote before my last update, but it all remains accurate.
I will continue to update as the weekend goes on, but if you want analysis in a game-by-game fashion, follow me on twitter @hardwiredsports.
