Bubble Teams 2-15-17

These teams are the In-But-On-The-Bubble, First Four In, First Four Out, and Next Four Out from my bracket projection.

My bracket/bubble team projections are based on computer rankings from TheRankerPit.com, which have proven better than ESPN’s BPI at picking against the spread.

Northwestern is still off the bubble (on the safe side).  Michigan joined them.  Xavier’s on the bubble.  Miami gained ground, while Tennessee lost some.  Illinois State is still right above the cut-line.  Maryland is back into the First Four Out.
