Remainder of the field is outside of the top 100 and is thus likely irrelevant (Morehead State was the lowest team to win last year at #92 and even they had a matchup issue in their favor against Louisville. Ohio was the lowest team the year before at #95, and Western Kentucky was #100 the prior year and had a 12 seed in their favor).

Really I would say the only team that didn't get in that has a decent case is Drexel, with South Florida being the weakest case for inclusion with a terrible top 50 record (2-7). Not too bad really.


Actual bracket thoughts will come by tomorrow.
