Notes:

  1. It’s still way too early to discern between resumes, especially the teams on the bubble. Right now the bubble is thin in terms of resumes, but that will change.
  2. I don’t have first four or next four out, yet. Soon.
  3. I haven’t nit-picked between resumes yet among the top seeds either. I will do that in due course, but things will change between now and then anyway, so this really just offers me a starting point. We still have two months and the only one that really matters is the final prediction!
  4. I took the top team from each one-bid league as the conference champion for now. I will later adjust to incorporate league standings, but they just haven’t played enough games to use that at this point. I expect the RPI leader will likely prevail in most leagues.
  5. Bids by conference: ACC 11, Big12 7, BigTen 7, Big East 5, SEC 5, Pac12 4, AAC 2, WCC 2, A10 2
