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
