    Do I have this right about the CAA?

    Am I right? Is the Colonial Athletic Association sending 3 teams to the next round? (assuming a VCU win, and that seems pretty safe right now)

    If so, that's not bad. About 10% of the remaining tournament teams.

    My bad. Obviously, I lost them in conference realignment, but a solid coupon would cushion the blow.

    I thought ODU should have won and GM should have lost. VCU did look very good today.

    VCU looks like the real deal.

    I had a feeling one of the two controversial choices for bids, UAB or VCU, would win at least one game in the "real" first round. But I assumed it would be UAB.

    (So I should have known it would be VCU. )

    Funny thing -- judging by CAA records, it looked like ODU was the only team that actually beat anybody outside of conference, figures they'd be the first one out.

    VCU is definitely playing with the "nobody thinks we belong here" chip on their shoulders.

    Probably so (or they're just better than anyone thought).

    But (and I post this on multiple boards at least once each season), I don't want to hear about "proving they belong" (I'm sure it's been said or written already) as a justification for the bid. Conversely, UAB didn't prove it's non-merit by losing. Either you should be in, or shouldn't.

    VCU most likely didn't deserve the bid over VT or Colorado (maybe not even St. Mary's or Alabama) but once the games start, it shouldn't matter anymore, and good for a team for taking advantage. Obviously, winning makes people forget about it sooner.

    I thought VCU deserved a bid over UAB. I think VCU has a decent chance to beat Purdue
