Bracketology 2012: Prognosis Not Good For Northwestern Wildcats

The Northwestern Wildcats likely could've secured their first ever bid in the NCAA Tournament with a victory in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament, but instead they lost in heartbreaking fashion to the Minnesota Golden Gophers, and will nervously wait on Sunday to see if they've received a bid. But if the selection committee is thinking anywhere along the lines of SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean, it will end up being a sad day in Evanston.

In his most recent 2012 Bracketology, Dobbertean has the Wildcats far outside of the bracket, slotting them as the last team in his "next four out" grouping, or essentially the 76th team amongst a group of squads fighting for 68 tournament spots. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, their work is done, and so now they wait.
