Bracketology: Bid thieves lurking as Sunday approaches

home-tournament-64-thumb.jpgSeveral bid thieves are lurking with Selection Sunday approaching.  Ohio State and Vanderbilt are active in the Big Ten and SEC tournaments.  If Houston or Memphis falls in the American, a bid thief will be in play on Sunday afternoon.  Florida Atlantic plays UAB in the title game of Conference USA.  If FAU falls, UAB will take someone’s spot.


This morning, Kansas moves to the No. 1 overall seed behind its 17 Quadrant 1 wins.  Alabama is second, followed by Houston and Purdue.  KU and Alabama could flip back if Texas wins and Alabama wins the SEC.

Pending further review, it looks like six or seven teams for three spots.  But as noted above, the cutline could shrink.  Thus, Dayton’s participants are far from confirmed.  By late tonight, we’ll have a better feel about any potential bid thieves.
