After Tuesday's Action (Green=Moved Up, Red=Moved Down, Blue=Moved In):

1 - Miami, FL, Indiana, Duke, Gonzaga
2 - Florida, Kansas, Michigan, Michigan State
3 - Syracuse, Arizona, New Mexico, Louisville
4 - Georgetown, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Butler
5 - Marquette, Wisconsin, Colorado State, Minnesota
6 - Illinois, Oregon, NC State, UNLV

14 - Valparaiso, Harvard, Stephen F Austin, Davidson
15 - Stony Brook, Montana, Long Beach State, Robert Morris
16 - Niagara, Northeastern, Mercer/Norfolk State, Southern/High Point
Quick Hits:
  • I have gone back and forth all morning on the 4th #1 seed and have given in to Gonzaga at this point, but it is in pencil and not pen.  I struggle with a team that has an RPI of 12 from the West Coast Conference getting a #1 seed, but right now the next group of teams is in prove it mode.
  • I have also finally corrected for Memphis.  I was taking the easy route with 1-bid leagues, but the Tigers are worthy of a better seed.
  • The 68th team for now is Virginia, despite two consecutive losses.  They have more work to do, but their wins are better than the next group of bubble contenders, which inlcudes Kentucky, Charlotte, Arizona State, Alabama and St. John's.
