NCAA Soccer – Bare Bones Bubble Watch v1.0

OK. So for the next few weeks, the bubble watch is going to be presented without comment, as Chris Thomas’ encompassing who still has a chance at an at-large bid based on past selections goes over a hundred teams for the first two RPI reports, and even I’m not that much of a masochist.

“Locks” are teams denoted to be safely in the field if trends in past years hold up. “Bubble” teams are still in the running for at-large bids if past trends hold up. “Bubble (Danger)” teams are currently ranked in a position that would see them drop from next week’s watch.

As always, past trends do not indicate future selections, so take this with a grain of salt.
