Notre Dame (22-6, 10-5 Big East) Click on Picture
RPI: 32
Quality wins: Maryland (at Washington, D.C.), Alabama, Louisville, Villanova, at Syracuse, Marquette
Bad losses: at St. John's, at South Florida
Next game: Saturday at Rutgers

Outlook: Notre Dame is more of a lock to make the tournament than just about anyone on this list. The Irish have won four consecutive games and have won 10 games in the Big East, which should be enough to merit a bid. We're keeping Notre Dame on this list only because the Irish end the regular season on the road against lowly Rutgers, which has an RPI rating of 205. A loss in that game coupled with an early exit in the Big East tournament could cause Irish fans to sweat on Selection Sunday, though Notre Dame would still have a better-than-even chance of earning a bid.

At this point I don't know how you cannot mark Notre Dame down as a tourney team, even if they lose their last 2 games.

you're right, i think he has them as a lock, but not definite because of strength of schedule. to me, they are a lock at a 6 or better seed

In order to find his equal, an Irishman is *forced* to talk to God.
