Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

Pitt, Uconn, Georgetown, Cuse, Louisville, Notre Dame, Villanova are locks with most llikely St Johns, Cincy and West Virginia getting in.  So I could see 9 or 10.

Our conferences? Who's that.

The Big 10 and SEC have 3 teams who's RPI is one of the top 25 in the country. The ACC has and Big 12 have 2. The Pac 10 has 1. Let me repeat that. The mighty Pac 10 has 1 flippin' team who's RPI is one of the top 25 in the country.

The Big East has how many? ...

8

The BE also has 12 in the top 100 of RPIs.

The field for the NCAA Tourney is 68 teams this year. 9 teams from the Big East getting in is probable, 10 if UC wins out and does well in the Big East Tournament. UC would be a lock now had their OOC schedule had not been the weakest in the nation.

Could be as many as 11.  My guess would be 9

I say ten.

This year, the at-large teams are few and far between. Some of them have lost in the past week, and while you do have your auto-bids coming from certain conference champs, those behind them will not get a seat at the table, since they are weaker than in years past. Add to that the fact that the Pac 10 sucks this year, and you're allowing extra slots for an extra BE team or two to get in, provided they do well in this last week and in the tournament.

Locks: Pitt, Villanova, Notre Dame, Syracuse, UConn, Georgetown, Louisville

Probably in: St. John's, West Virginia

Bubble: Cincinnati

I think UC does okay in the stretch and gets just enough to get a bid in as a lower seed, over a possible at-large team without as many good wins.
