We're getting close to Bracketology season where brackets will go up every 3-4 days. Am going to wait a day or so more to let a few more conference results trickle in so I can put some leaders in the bracket.
@Xavier 86, Butler 79
Georgetown won a road game! Wow! After such a terrible non-con SoS, to add a Big East roa-oh wait, it was DePaul. Never mind
Texas Tech 85, @Kansas 73 - okay, now I'll pay attention to Tech a bit
TCU 81, @Baylor 78 - we may need to revisit things: with a loaded Big 12, is Baylor the odd team out?
Florida 83, @Texas A&M 66 - now here's a Group 0 win as I like to call it. At least, it should be, but this is a concerning start for A&M in the SEC. Starting to wonder if they'll all beat each other up and keep each other from the top 3 lines
@Mississippi St 78, Arkansas 75 - I'm still not sure how good MSU is. It's a paper-thin resume for a 13-1 team. Still, this is a service hold you need if you're gonna make the tourney
Auburn 94, @Tennessee 84 - meanwhile, here's a Group 1 win for Auburn, as both teams feel like tourney teams. The middle of this SEC could be fun
@Vanderbilt 76, Alabama 75 - if you're an SEC bubble team, you'll lose a couple roadies...but you don't want to spend one of them against Vandy
@Louisville 77, Pittsburgh 51
@Wisconsin 71, Indiana 61
Michigan 75, @Iowa 68 - road wins are never trivial
@Maryland 75, Penn St 69 - service hold
Nebraska 70, @Northwestern 55 - this is a loss that will remove NU from bubble discussion for awhile
San Diego St 77, @Colorado St 68
It was matchday 1 in the MAC.....highly ranked league for them (10th) but no legitimate at-large candidates. Buffalo is the best team, probably, and holds over Toledo for win 1
CAA: Charleston beats Delaware to go 2-0, and Towson...loses at Elon. Maybe Elon is a contender, not Towson. There's a pretty decent top half of the conference, and if one team can separate...
Vermont picks up a token road win at Harvard
Bucknell loses at home to Boston U in the Patriot...uh oh
