looks good.

i would look at conference rpi's for the mid-majors even though the committee will insist they are only looking at the teams.

i think some of that seeding will pan out after the bracket busters.  that is if those winners and losers actually win their conference tournaments.

Looks good Jason:

I would argue though that, even though I have them in as well, Florida should be moved down to the bubble. The SOS is not very good, and that bad loss to Georgia will stick out on their resume.
