Points of Emphasis in my bracket

1) This year more than ever the bubble is weak, what I want to know is can you beat NCAA quality teams, this is why despite Indiana St. struggling in conference, than N-Miami is too strong to ignore, its the best win by any bubble team by far

2) Injuries- Where are you now? Kentucky gets killed by this metric... they were a solid bubble team with Noel, without him I think they are NIT bound

3) Road Games- NCAA games aren't played at home... can you win on road/Neutral... this helps Charlotte who did very well in the non-conf on the road and has a road win at Butler on the resume

Updated 2/3

Joe (Washington D.C)- Why you so low on Illinois, lots of great wins, and don't have any bad losses

Joe, completely agree that Illinois doesn't have the bad losses one would expect from an 11 seed, but the reality is that they have a ton of losses... only 1 team has ever made the tournament being 4 games under .500 in conference play, so while they have the wins to be in, the losses add up and result in a lower seed than one might think

Mary (Seattle, Washington)- Whose this year's Iona going to be that nobody had in?

Mary, I think its clear now that the committee is using the extra at-large bids to get the mid-major teams more access to the tournament, I currently have Middle Tenn State winning the Sun Belt and getting the automatic bid, but if they don't win it I think they are a team that would sneak in despite a below-average resume

Jim (South Bend, IN)- How high can ND go?

If ND wins out, they max out at a 3 seed Jim, but i can't see a way they get above a 5

Stacy (Kansas City, MO)- Kansas have a shot at the #1 overall seed still?

Loss yesterday was a tough one for them, but if they win out they have a good shot at #1 overall seed
