How Kentucky can keep off the bubble

08:20 AM ET 03.13 | Most years, Kentucky doesn't have a thing to worry about. This year, the Cats are in a three-way tie for second place in a conference Jeff Sagarin's computer ranks as the sport's seventh-best. "The other side is," Calipari argued Tuesday, "of what we were and where we were, that's pretty good stuff." Good enough? The guess here is that a Friday loss tosses Kentucky right back into the hopper with all those teams that will be rubbing good-luck charms on Sunday night. A trip to Saturday's semifinals equals a little breathing room. A berth in Sunday's final and you can put the blood pressure medicine back in the bottle. In the end, however, it's up to those nine men and one woman meeting this weekend in Indianapolis.

Used to be the eye candy on these threads could fix that problem! :(

but to answer the question, Calipari will need to send his bagmen to at least 6 of the committee members...

I wouldn't think it would be that hard to win a couple of games in the SEC basketball tourney!!!!

9 teams in the SEC have a top 100 RPI ranking. Certainly not easy.

A bunch of freshmen running and dunking and trading baskets? smh not interested.

They're worried about beating teams in the top 100, so that they get into a top 64 tourney?

If they can't beat ALL of them, just be quiet and go to the NIT.

Shouldn't be. SEC is pretty weak this year.
