    About time we get some recognition. Hopefully this doesn't jinx us.

    This is great news! Now we don't have to waste the whole season worrying about whether our record and RPI are adequate. What a relief!

    Uh oh, this app has no jimlad...

    A 70% conference big dance rate is pretty good.

    Yes, I noticed that. I'm somewhat doubtful that this ten team league is a shoe in for 7 bids.

    I could possibly see any of those teams you bolded, but probably not all of them.

    And I notice Creighton is on there, too.

    If anything, it seems a little steep on mid-major conferences with multiple bids — just from a realistic/typical standpoint.

    Nice to get ISU in a projection, though. It means nothing, especially in preseason, but it would be cool to be included in bracketology throughout the year. Attention of that sort never hurts.

    Yeah, I doubt Big12 gets 7 of the 10 in this season.
