The List
Week of March 3, 2008

Starting this week, the pools become meaningless. Who cares what writers, coaches or some guy on the Internet thinks? Save for the Ivy League—which crowned a champion and NCAA tournament participant over the weekend in undefeated Cornell—and a handful of independents and uninviteds, every Division I team will have a chance to win eight, nine or 10 straight games and be crowned National Champion. It’s a beautiful thing.

With that—and a killer travel/promotion schedule on the baseball side—in mind, here’s a late and short edition of The List. We’ll continue to run The List the next two weeks, but my focus will shift to a feature that parallels the process of selecting 34 at-large teams for the tournament. I’m pretty sure there’s no way to avoid using the word “Bubble” in there, but I’ll try.

All records are Division I games only, through Sunday, and the second number in parens is a team’s rank in last week’s poll. No comments this week.
