Boston College [20-12 (9-7), RPI: 46, SOS: 35] Boston College's emotions did not wax and wane like the Hokies' did Friday; the Eagles were pretty much out of it from the moment they took the floor in a 70-47 blowout loss to Clemson. The question: Does the loss move the Eagles out of the bubble picture? That answer is no. BC is no doubt on the wrong side of the bubble cutline today, and it certainly didn't do itself any ancillary favors by looking so thoroughly weak in what was essentially a bubble play-in game. But the Eagles -- who swept Virginia Tech, by the way -- are not entirely out of the picture, even with what has eventually become an extremely marginal resume (1-5 vs. RPI top 50, 7-10 vs top 100). In fact, the bubble is probably right where this team belongs. BC will need some help from someone to get in, but it's not impossible.
