    I'd love to see the Big12 get 6 -- if for no other reason than to stick it to the knucklehead analysts that only have 3 in at this point.

    Love that the amount of teams from the Big Ten continues to get lower and lower, most overrated conference

    Well done. An excellent analysis of why we are not really on the bubble (if we beat tech)

    Great West does not get an NCAA bid until 2020...other than that, nice work! What seed do you think we end up with?

    Agree!!

    I do think the Pac 12 gets three teams - AZ or possible Colorado.

    I think the CAA should get those 3 teams in. The selection committee knows that Mason and VCU can bring a lot of people to the TV sets now.

    Any team tied with Iowa in conference play shouldnt be allowed in the tourny. If a team lost to Iowa they should be knocked down 2 seeds.

    As Clone21 would say - We still have a chance to end up 7th in the league and barely make the NIT.

    You mean the one and only analyst out there, the guy from CBS? Because I think just about every other analyst has has ISU and K-State in, which means 5-6 Big 12 teams.

    Re: My NCAA Tournament forecast - Long

    Take off another 3-4 slots from automatic qualifiers that will steal spots from bubble teams by winning their conference, with a team from their conference that deserves an at large.

    Seems that every year, cuts down bubble teams by 3-4.
