A crazy Saturday has made a few bubble teams very unhappy.  Houston stole an at-large bid by winning the Conference USA Tournament.  New Mexico State likely did the same by beating Utah State, who should still be in.  Washington went from bubble team to a for sure “in” by claiming the Pac-10 crown.  Minnesota and Mississippi State improved their resumes by advancing to the tournament title games in their respective conferences.  With all that taken into account, here is my latest version of predicting what the NCAA Tournament field will look like.  (Teams with an * have already clinched a spot in the dance.)

Illinois probably saved their NCAA Tournament lives by beating Wisconsin on Saturday.  Same can be said of Washington after advancing to the Pac-10 Championship Game and San Diego State since they knocked off New Mexico; earning a trip to the Mountain West Title tilt.  Still, there are plenty of debates and questions with Selection Sunday now a little more than 24 hours away.  Here is my latest attempt at predicting the 65-team tourney field.  (Teams with an * have already clinched a spot in the dance.)

Five days… Five days away from Selection Sunday.  More automatic bids have been handed out and bubble teams are in desperate need of some wins during their respective conference tournaments.  Luckily I am here to sort it all out with how the brackets will look this Sunday.  As always, leave a comment if you dispute any of my seeds.

Happy March!  We are now just 12 days away from Selection Sunday and conference tournaments are about to begin.  The “Christmas” analogy to describe people’s happiness for up-coming sporting events is more played out than Jack Bauer miraculously escaping capture from the bad guys, so I’ll just say I am anxious.  Very, very anxious.  Here is my latest bracketology.  Feel free to leave a comment at the end if you disagree and I’ll state my case.
