I don't suppose many of us expected Georgia to make the NCAA basketball tournament before the season started -- and the Bulldogs' 1-7 start in SEC play certainly clinched that outcome (although I guess the 2008 UGA team taught us to never rule out a miracle at the conference tournament. Let's hope New Orleans doesn't get hit by another natural disaster, though, for that wonderful city's sake).

Anyway, ESPN college basketball blogger Eamonn Brennan is taking a look at the possible NCAA tournament entries and bubble teams today and there is a common thread for Georgia's last two opponents, Arkansas and Mississippi State. Their tourney resumes took hits in the last week after losses to Georgia. In fact, Arkansas has darn near fallen off the bubble.
