    * If a Conference hasn't played any conference games, I used the highest rated NET team as the "auto" bid.

    Penn got destroyed by Toledo and then lost to Monmouth University down the road.

    I'm not sure about my assessment of them as the Ivy champ, lol.

    NET is pretty much the same tool as RPI with some variation. Kentucky rocketed up I think 100 places by virute of 2 wins.

    Seton Hall I think should be higher based on what they've done today, but by March they will be an 8-9 or lower.

    I also think no matter what NET says that if Kansas and the SEC winner finish with similar conference records, they'll give the #1 seed to Kansas.

    I so badly want Marquette to play to expectations in conference play so they can get that protected seed in Des Moines

    Abilene Christian is on a roll. They definitely should take the Southland Conference.

    OU (13-3) is probably more of a 4 or 5-seed with time to move up.
