Our resume is on par with Oklahoma who is listed by most as a 9 or 10 seed

Have a better resume than TCU and Texas currently. Without at least 2, probably 3 more conference champion upsets, we are most likely in.
Tourney's to watch:
Pac12 - If anyone but Washington or ASU win, its a bid stealer. ASU could give back a bid if they lose their first game.
MAC - Buffalo is in, so if they don't win, that takes another one.
Mountain West - Probably a 2 bid league, so want Utah St. or Nevada to win the tourney. Utah St. could drop out if they lose first game.
BE - The BE is probably looking at about 4 bids, but if the top 2 teams (MArquettte, Villanova) get upset before the finals, it could open the door to one of their 3-4 bubble teams to get in. Don't really want Georgetown or Creighton making a deep run, though we do have a win over Creighton.
SEC - They are getting a lot of teams in, so not likely the champ will be a bid stealer, but would help if Alabama loses before the semis.
American - Pegged for 4 teams right now, so want one of those 4 to win the tourney. If Temple loses early, it could open up another spot for someone.
B12 - Rooting for TCU and Texas to lose today as it would drop them below us and likely out of tourney.
ACC - NC State lost today. I don't think we are guaranteed to move above them, I think its a toss up, so that helps.
