This officially goes unchanged after one final seed scrub from me.

Weird :  Stanford dropped out with a loss in a tournament that ended up cancelled.  Makes you wonder, in a hypothetical world where the NCAA tournament was back on, if those conference tournaments would actually count.  I could actually see the NCAA throwing out all conference tourney results for all teams, inviting all regular season champions and proceeding.  If the NCAA does end up releasing a seed list, I'd like to see them go that route.

In that scenario, I'd change:
- SDSU gets their 1 seed back, Dayton back to a 2
- Utah St drops out of the field, replaced by UCLA (the SDSU win served as rocket fuel for its resume)
- UNI probably leaps a seed line or so.  UNI getting the autobid back actually bumps Stanford back in the field as a result.
- St Mary's probably loses a seed line to Houston by having their BYU win erased
- the obvious changes at the bottom with the likes of Winthrop, Boston U, etc replaced
- Colorado gets a seed back (PSU drops one amid their horrid non-con SoS)

As is, the previous seed list gets frozen in place.
