Interesting you have Tennessee and Georgetown way outside your field and I have seen one or both teams in several of the fields of places I have been following.

Kentucky has fallen to a 3 seed on some places I hope they can get a 2 seed after blowing it vs Kansas but they need to win a lot of games in the weak SEC.

I can't wait for Feb 11th I thought I was going to be against it when it was announced but now I want to see where the real committee has Kentucky and other teams.

Tennessee and Georgetown aren't that far away. Once you get past the first 4 or 5 teams outside the tourney....there's not much difference there. Those two teams are plenty alive.

Is Richmond in as A10 leader?

Andrew said...

Yep, A-10 leader.

Could actually cause an interesting conversation about seeding conference champs - have to think the committee would give the A-10 champ a 12 seed, but the profile feels closer to 14.
