Two weeks ago, we released our midseason field of 64 projection, after the completion of week seven action. With nine weeks in the books, it’s time for another update. Some notable changes from two weeks ago:
• Arkansas takes over for Vanderbilt as No. 1 national seed.
• Mississippi State, Oregon and Tennessee replace Texas Tech, Ole Miss and Arizona as top-eight seeds.
• Oregon and Stanford replace Oregon State and Miami as hosts.
• Updated bid projections by conference: SEC (nine); ACC (eight); Pac-12 (six); Big 12 (five); Big Ten and Conference USA (four apiece); American, Big West, Sun Belt and WCC (two apiece).
FIRST FIVE OUT:
Kentucky, Creighton, NC State, Dallas Baptist, Clemson
LAST FIVE IN:
Alabama, Baylor, Tulane, San Diego, Louisiana
We released our first batch of projections a couple of weeks ago at the midseason mark. Much has changed in our latest NCAA tournament projections after Week Nine.d1baseball.com
Will need to win the A10...and they canPretty surprised about the RPI numbers.....This year's VCU Rams have been head scratchingly inconsistent, so I can neither count them out or say "for sure!" regarding the postseason. Covid junk has already screwed up conference games and who knows how that'll shake out for the A10 seeding....THAT will be the biggest factor about who moves on.
btw....Rams had a nice little win a month ago over now ranked odu....throw in the UVa win and the fact that we'll see them again as super helpful.
