The number of teams alive is getting smaller and smaller and smaller.  Now only 91 teams are alive after another 29 teams died on Friday.  Here are the teams that lost their chance on Friday...

The LOCK category is getting crowded as teams continue to be upset in their conference tourneys.  These teams however, did enough to get to the big dance.  The teams that earned the LOCK status on Friday were...

ATLANTIC 10 - St. Louis, UMASS
ACC -  North Carolina, Syracuse
BIG 12 - Kansas, Texas
PAC 12 - Colorado
AMERICAN - Cincinnati

And we got a few more ZOMBIES on Friday.  These teams will be sweating it out Sunday night.  The teams that couldn't get it done and now need to pray are...

SEC - Missouri
BIG 10 - Nebraska, Minnesota
ATLANTIC 10 - Dayton
CONFERENCE USA - Southern Mississippi
BIG EAST - Xavier
PAC 12 - Stanford

TOTAL    351
DEAD      260
ALIVE       91
ZOMBIE    13
AUTO        13
LOCK        15

There are 14 Conference Championship games on Saturday.  That will give us 28 AUTO bids by the end of the day.  Only these two days left before the committee makes their decision.  Saturday night I'll have a breakdown of who I think will make the dance and get rid of some of these ZOMBIES.  Thanks for reading.
