Bracketology 3/10/18

We officially have our first bid stealer as Nevada got run out of the gym by San Diego State last night, I've moved the Aztecs in as a 12 seed. Falling out of the field at their expense is Louisville, Arizona State also moves out in favor of Middle Tennessee. Right now, I think there's 2 spots up for grabs in the field- I wouldn't be shocked to see UCLA, Oklahoma, Texas or USC left out but I think it's unlikely. I think that Louisville, Arizona State and Syracuse all have legitimate claims to be in while the four teams after them are a bit of a longer shot. Just for fun, I've included an NIT projection after the NCAA projection.
