Not just the mainstreamers
We've been noticing more and more mainstream media talk about Holy Cross deserving a bid to the NCAA Tournament. Maybe it is, in part anyhow, because those guys read some of the blogs out there, like Notes From A Basketball Junkie, who having finally gotten his computer back up and running after major Microsoft snafus, had this to say today about the mythical bubble:
"Holy Cross (17-5, 8-1, RPI: 38) ? Just like their fellow New Englanders, BU, the Crusaders are another team that would be a lock if they played in a different league. Ralph Willard's squad, who lost to the 20-1 Boston College Eagles 63-60 in an OT classic in December, have done everything that a mid-major should have to do to get an invite to the tourney if they don't win the Patriot League. Whether they do or not is another question that is no longer in the hands of the Crusaders."We're telling ya folks, it reminds us of that Arlo Guthrie Alice's Restaurant song. It's a movement.
