A couple conference leaders changes. I can give the Pac-12 to Oregon for now, but Tulsa has to be assigned the AAC lead. A couple changes in 1-bid land too.
I see people putting Dayton on the 1 line. Not sure I'm quote there yet. Dayton does have the SoS advantage. Both losses are very reasonable and don't hurt the resume in the way SDSU's loss does. In the end, Dayton's collection of wins: N-St Mary's, @Richmond, swept URI, and plenty of wins over NIT teams. SDSU has @BYU, N-Creighton, N-Iowa, and swept Utah St. That's a better collection. If Dayton could swap losses between Colorado and any other game on their sked, I think that'd be the difference. SDSU has 3 Q1-A wins. That's gotta hold for now.
I can be swayed though.
There's a bit of scrubbing elsewhere.

Obviously things will change, but right now I feel like this is the group of 12 playing 6 spots on the bubble that belong in a cluster.
