8 Days Left....

Saturday ended with 34 teams taking the plunge.  We finally got our first auto bids, first at large lock, and first Zombie Team.  Here is the quick breakdown of what happened on March 3rd.

Teams that died...

Colonial - UNC Wilmington, Delaware, Northeastern, Georgia State
Big South - Virginia Military Institute
Southern - Appalachian State, Wofford, Furman, Georgia Southern
America East - Binghamton, New Hampshire, Maine, Boston University
Ohio Valley - Tennessee State
Patriot - American University, Lafayette
Mid Atlantic - Rider, Marist, Niagara, Manhattan
Big Sky - Idaho State, Montana State
Missouri Valley - Evansville
Southland - Texas State
Horizon - Cleveland State, Butler
SWAC - Southern
West Coast - San Francisco
Sun Belt - Troy, Florida Atlantic, Florida International
Summit - IPFW, IUPUI
Atlantic Sun - Florida Gulft Coast

Automatic Bids Granted....

Big South - UNC Asheville
Ohio Valley - Murray State
Atlantic Sun - Belmont

Zombie team added....

West Coast - BYU
(I think BYU is in, but I could see how they would be left out, RPI of 46 and 5-6 against the Top 100, it's iffy.  Do you think BYU should be moved out of this category and into the At Large Lock category?)

At Large Lock team....

Missouri Valley - Wichita State
(Lost in their conference semifinals.  They are 14th in the RPI and 6-3 against the Top 100, this team is a lock to make the dance.  Anyone not agree?)

Here is our current count....

TOTAL ALIVE           216
AUTO LOCK                3
ZOMBIE                        1

DEAD                          128

TOTAL                        344

Only one title game today and that's in the Missouri Valley Conference.  A win by Illinois State would pop someones bubble come next Sunday.  A total of 16 teams could get the dagger today.  7 days until Selection Sunday, almost there.  Have fun.


Could have used him last night...
