Dead or Alive?!?!?!?!?!

Another 8 teams lost their chance to win the title on Saturday.  Those teams were:

Stetson - Atlantic Sun
Eastern Illinois - Ohio Valley
Central Arkansas - Southland
Southeastern Louisiana - Southland
Texas A&M Corpus Christi - Southland
Princeton - Ivy
SIU Edwardsville - Ohio Valley
South Dakota - Summit

South Dakota is actually ineligible due to switching to Division 1 this year, but they wouldn't have made their tourney anyway, so it's all good.

That puts us at a total of 32 teams now with zero chance to dream the ultimate dream.  Those other 24 teams?  I'll give you a quick run down here since it's Sunday and it's just a good time to give these teams one last shout out for a failed season.  Those teams are:

Atlantic Sun - Kennesaw State
Big Sky - Northern Arizona, Sacramento State
Northeast - Fairleigh Dickinson, Bryant University, Mount St. Mary's, St. Francis, PA
Ohio Valley - Tennessee Martin
Summit - UMKC
Sun Belt - Louisiana Monroe
Ivy - Brown, Dartmouth, Columbia, Cornell
Independents - Cal State Bakersfield, Seattle, Longwood
Great West - Utah Valley, Texas Pan American, North Dakota, NJIT, Houston Baptist, Chicago State
Big South - Presbyterian

No teams will become deceased on Sunday, so we go into Monday with 312 teams still with a chance to win it all.

ESPN says Championship Week starts next Saturday, but it really starts on Monday.  At least 7 conferences start their tourneys this week, a few more start later in the week.  This is where the real fun begins and teams start dropping like flies.  Stay tuned, I'll keep you updated on who is in, who is out, and some bubble talk once it comes to that.  Enjoy.
