Schmolik 64 Update (3/10/21)



Hello, college basketball fans!

First a shot out to my Philadelphia boys, the Drexel Dragons! Last night they clinched their first ever Colonial Athletic Association title since they joined the conference and are heading to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1996!

This is a quick update just to update the new automatic bids including Drexel and of course the Gonzaga Bulldogs completed the first undefeated regular season since Kentucky in 2015. You might as well lock them into the #1 overall seed now. Will Gonzaga become the first team since Indiana to complete a perfect season?

I'm seeing a lot more upsets and a lot more lower NET rankings start to show up in the automatic bids (Drexel was the #6 seed in the CAA, is #138 in the NET, and is a #14 seed in this bracket and there could still be upsets so who knows if they will be higher than that?
