only one tournament participant, Oklahoma, a loss, on the schedule. Neither BU or Hartford are dancing since faltering in the AE tournament.

Base on RPI and SOS from Palm they deserve an 11, even though he has them at 12.

He has matched a lot of mids ensuring that some of them will make it to the second round. Who knows if the committee will see that through. A matchup vs. South Dakota would be very interesting. Tournament tested old Marist vs. this year's mid-major darling and new kid on the block. ;-)

I say that no more than six teams from any conference should get into the tournament. I don't care what conference you're in, if you're only the seventh best team in that conference, there is a mid-major second place team somewhere that can kick your ass.

"extra" seed will go to mid rather than the 4th team from another big conference. I like that because it makes a dent in the SOS argument being used for justifying the 7th and 8th power conference rep. We all know the "difficulties" mids have in scheduling up games against mid level majors. The cap might give some mid level majors an incentive to take on a top mid to win a head to head that would set them apart come tournament seeding time. Could have really helped a Niagara or St. Mary's this year.
