The committee began their deliberations at noon today in Indianapolis, 3.5 hours ago. So, what are they doing right now? The first step in the selection process is the initial balloting. Each committee member submits two ballots. The first ballot is a list of all teams that should definitely be in the tournament, no matter what. This ballot has a maximum of 37 teams. Any team that receives at least all but 2 of the eligible votes is put into the tournament. The second ballot is a list of all teams that ought to be considered for the tournament.
CJ and I will each come up with our own ballots, and post them here sometime before 5.
