Selection Sunday: Boston College Basketball Bracketology

We are finally here. Selection Sunday.

The question on everyone's mind is whether Boston College is in or out at this point. In all likelihood, we are out -- done in by a lopsided ACC Quarterfinals loss to Clemson, and weekend wins by Penn State, Richmond and Virginia Tech:

The Dagger's Jeff Eisenberg explains:

"The Eagles one-sided quarterfinal loss to fellow at-large hopeful Clemson on Friday afternoon will probably be the result that keeps them from making the field of 68. A 9-7 ACC record is nothing to get excited about this season, and a victory over Texas A&M is the only standout non-conference win on Boston College's resume."

In one day, out the next. Such is life on the bubble.

Two of the below brackets have BC sneaking in as a 12 seed, so I suppose there's still an outside chance. But I wouldn't count on it. Buckle up, because it's going to be an uncomfortable Sunday.
