Quick Analysis: Ohio State’s win over Indiana was enough to move them up to a four. After considering whether or not I should bring down Arizona or Marquette, I decided on Oklahoma State as I think there is a rule you can only have one OSU per seed line (this is a joke and should not be criticized). Iowa has significantly helped their chances with that win over Illinois and now finds themselves as my sixth team out. Arkansas looked bad yesterday and they along with St. Johns are on the thinnest of ices. Basically all the teams in my “also considered” are longshots that I don’t see getting in, I just like every conceivable option to be there. At this point though, I see 14 spots for 37 teams. Yes 37 is still a lot but it can only shrink from here. 9 line down is still considered bubble besides Illinois who despite their loss should still consider themselves safe.

Happy Bracketing!
