A wild weekend

It was a crazy weekend for sure.

But, we’re a little closer to finding out who may be moving on in the NCAA Tournament.

We’ll keep updating the blog as we go on this week, replacing the usual Bracketology with some insights during the week.

Some things that I believe:

The TUC line is set except for one team.  Northeastern.  If Northeastern wins one game, it will be above .5000 in the RPI, making the Huskies a TUC.  It helps some teams a little bit.

RIT, Air Force, Holy Cross, Connecticut, Cornell, Colgate, Northeastern, Bemidji State and Alaska-Anchorage need to win their tournaments to get into the NCAA Tournament.

The bubble consists of Western Michigan, Nebraska-Omaha, Colorado College, Dartmouth, Rensselaer, Boston University and Maine.

We’ll go more into detail as the week moves on.

In the meantime, here is how I see it right now.

East Regional (Bridgeport)

16 RIT vs. 1 Yale

9 Union vs. 8 Merrimack

West Regional (St. Louis)

13 Nebraska-Omaha vs. 4 Michigan

12 Western Michigan vs. 6 Denver
