Details of Next Update

The next projection should be posted on Monday, 1/22.  Here is a preview of its predictive system:

  • Automatic Bids are still projected by current conference standings.
  • Teams are now placed by "True Seed"
    • Regional/Host sites subsequently listed
  • Starting at Seed 5, season/conference match-ups are considered to move teams along the line.
    • For example, if a potential rematch exists for a 4/5 in the same conference during the regular season, the 5 team must be moved per principle.
  • RPI Comparison heavily favored outside the Top 8.
  • "In" teams must have at least 1 quality win (Top 50 RPI).
    • The "scrubbing" process is emphasized only on the bubble.
