GT on the Bubble

The stories will start unless we start winning more games:

Georgia Tech: After the Yellow Jackets made it all the way to the national championship game last year at the Alamodome and brought back just about everyone on that team, it looked like they'd be in the Final Four hunt all season.

But an injury to B.J. Elder hurt more than anyone could have imagined, and now Georgia Tech (14-7) is on the brink of disaster. The Yellow Jackets have lost five of their past eight, and still have tough road trips to Florida State, Miami and Wake Forest and home dates against Duke and North Carolina State remaining. If they don't hold their own during that stretch, they could become the first Final Four team since Minnesota in 1997 not to make the NCAA tournament the next season.
