These are excellent Pete! I am always looking for who are the likely candidates are to get knocked off early.

If you quickly applied this list to Lunardi's Bracketology or the equivalent on CBS, we could get a projected snapshot at potential teams to avoid. Kind of like what you do with the champion criteria.

Reb+TO margin <5: Pase - .462, no F4s
Syracuse 4.9
Kentucky 4.4
Ohio St 4.9
Baylor 4.9
Georgetown 1.5
Pitt 3.2
Maryland 4.0
Purdue 4.3
Vandy 0.6
TX A&M 4.3
Marq 3.1
Tenn 4.2
ND 3.4

Look at that, 13/24 of the 1- 6 seeds this year don't have > 5 reb+TO margin! With the relative weakness of the field, I'm giving the 4.9's a pass here...
