I think at most tables, you should be even more aggressive than usual on the bubble and loosen up your range because NITS will be folding AJ and AQ with like 10 bbs trying to sqeak into the money.
You may have heard the old saying "do the opposite of your table. if your table is loose, play tight, if your table is tight play loose" and this is generally accepted to be true and sage poker advice (with a few exceptions).
So the problem with advice like this:

is that this is exactly what everybody else is usually doing around the bubble, and as a result playing uber tight on the bubble is actually much less "safe" than it seems. You're all equally likely to just slowly blind out together while 1 or 2 table bullies essentially doubles up or better without even taking any big risks.
SO BE THAT GUY! don't be the scared little churchmouse trying to squeak into the minimum money...in the words of Vince Vaughn "Be the guy in the rated R movie....You're So money, Baby!"
