Here it is, my projections for the field of 68.
The VBDI (Vitale Bald Dome Index) has gone absolutely bananas, baby!
Breaking down the field of 68 is not easy. A number of bubble teams are rooting for Xavier over St. Bonaventure. If the Bonnies win, it is one for the bid stealers.
I have tried to sort things out, by conference.
If St. Bonaventure wins, then Mississippi State will fall out of the field, in my view.
This is based on what I believe the committee will do. Personally, I would reward more of the mid-majors like Iona for great play during the regular season.
We will find out on Sunday how this all plays out. The committee may see things a little differently, like with VCU last season.
