Is it March already? Ah, yes, the madness begins. Here's CBS SportsLines projection of the field of 65 (last year they nailed 64 out of 65 schools invited); it includes a nice explanation for the inclusion of each team. And here's their projection of the seeds.

Not that this probably matters to most of the known universe, but I wouldn't be so quick to pick Montana State in the Big Sky. They still have a huge game left with Montana. And just because the tournament will probably be here (Bozeman) doesn't guarentee the Bobcats squat. This was a close season in a lot of conferences, and the Big Sky is definately one of the closest.

It's easy to get 64 of 65 right when you update things as the conference tourney's progress. They've already changed their 'automatic bid' for the Atlantic Sun from Georgia State to FAU. If I was allowed to change things after the fact, I'd be able to pick the entire House of Representatives too :)

So that's how they do it. Well, if that's true, they're pretty lame for missing 1 out of 65.
