5 Other teams with a shot:  Middle Tennessee St., Marquette, Louisville, Baylor, Syracuse
"Bubble" Teams I think are definitely out:  Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Utah, Penn State, Boise State, Mississippi State, Nebraska

All the small conferences have been decided except the Ivy League and the Sunbelt.  We have one potential bid stealer left.  If Davidson beats Rhode Island today, I think either USC or Arizona State will be staying home.  My last team in came down to USC v. Middle Tennessee State.  They have surprisingly similar resumes, but USC won head to head so I used that as my tiebreaker.
