A few notes on my projected field:

  • The team assumed to get the automatic bid for each conference is the highest team in the ratings currently eligible for the bid. In other words, it isn’t necessarily the team with the better seed in the conference tourney (for example, right now I have Stephen F. Austin ahead of SE Louisiana even though SE Louisiana had the better conference record in the Southland.)
  • This is based on the selection being today, not on what is projected to occur between now and Sunday.
  • There is significant separation between a few of the teams ranked next to each other.  Please look at the Index output linked below to see how close/far teams are from each other.  A difference of 1.00 between teams ranked next to each other is average.
