Lol, thanks Pete, Please don't over- rate Pitt, They have been overachieving all year, but through toughness, hard work, and coaching. Pitt has been amazing this year. The pre- season expectation was for Dixon's team to make it to the NIT.

Mark, I'll do this one at least one more time after Selection Sunday. It will be important to see where the squads are seeded as well. I hesitate to say this is the best summary...there are more things to glean from the overall Excel sheet I provide. But this is definitely a handy "at- a- glance" view.

MarketingScott...sorry, I relaxed the requirement to 75ppg...I'll fix. The reason I did was to adjust for the lower scoring we've seen in recent years. That said, the champ almost always averages more than 77ppg.

Spike - Good catch. Wrote these on a plane to Montreal (to go see Clapton and Beck!) and must've missed ... more »

I noticed a discrepancy in the PPG category. The post says it should be >77 in the requirements section, but 75 in the Wake Forest and West Virgina write- up. Stats seem to align with 75 as the qualifier. Can you confirm the correct measure?

Stretch run review: Kansas top favorite, Tennessee biggest pretender and Maryland best sleeper:

With three weeks until Selection Sunday, I took a look at all the AP Top 25 teams and any team off that list that has a top 25 possession- based Pythag ranking. Then I slotted them into six categories—five favorites, five challengers, five contenders, ... more »
