Dead or Alive 3/11

Tuesday was the last weak day of the season.  Only 13 games were on the schedule all day, that will change tomorrow.  10 teams were eliminated on Tuesday, here is who is finished...

SWAC - Jackson State
MEAC - North Carolina A&T, Bethune Cookman, Delaware State
CONFERENCE USA - Rice, Florida Atlantic, Texas-San Antonio
NORTHEAST - Robert Morris
HORIZON - Wright State

Four more teams punched their tickets to the dance as they were awarded the AUTO bids.  There have now been 12 AUTO's handed out.  Here is who earned them on Tuesday night...

HORIZON - Milwaukee
NORTHEAST - Mount St. Mary's
SUMMIT - North Dakota State
WEST COAST - Gonzaga

We have our first ZOMBIE team of the year.  The BYU Cougars are not dead, but not totally alive.  They have an RPI of 31, eight top 100 wins, and 22 wins.  Personally, I think they are in, but definitely not a lock.  Your new Zombie team...


Here is how the numbers look...

TOTAL    351
DEAD      152
ALIVE     199
ZOMBIE     1
AUTO       12
LOCK         0

Only one Conference Championship to be played on Wednesday.  The Patriot final is American vs. Boston.  Boston is the favorite but they split with American early this year.  American won their home game by 30.  Favorites haven't been doing to well so I'll take American in this one.

Seven Conferences get started on Wednesday, finally some of the big ones.  Here are the favorites, who I think will win, and who I want to win...

AMERICAN - Louisville, Louisville, Temple
ATLANTIC 10 - St. Louis, VCU, Dayton
ACC - Duke, Syracuse, Virginia
BIG 12 - Kansas, Iowa State, West Virginia
MOUNTAIN WEST - San Diego State, New Mexico, Fresno State
SEC - Florida, Florida, Florida
SOUTHLAND - Stephen F. Austin, Stephen F. Austin, Stephen F. Austin

Five more days until Selection Sunday.  Thanks for reading.
