NCAA tournament 2011: Last four teams in, first four out

By Eric Prisbell

[Note: If you are planning to run an NCAA tournament office pool or a pool among friends, please contact me via e-mail. I'd like to hear from you about your pool. I'm not quoting you or anything; I'm just interested in your thoughts about an idea I have.

It's somewhat painful to select the last four at-large teams because it is difficult to make a compelling case for many of the teams on the bubble this season. It should be noted that in today's mock bracket, which will be up soon, I gave Duquesne the automatic berth in the Atlantic 10 and Alabama the automatic berth in the Southeastern Conference. So this what I did with the bubble teams competing for the last of the 37 at-large berths:

Last four in
Richmond (19-6)
Boston College (15-9)
Virginia Tech (15-7)
Memphis (18-6)

First four out
Michigan State (13-10)
Colorado State (15-7)
Virginia Commonwealth (20-6)
Baylor (16-7)

Multi-bid leagues
ACC (5 teams)
Atlantic 10 (4)
Big 12 (6)
Big East (11)
Big Ten (5)
CAA (2)
Conference USA (2)
Mountain West (3)
Pac-10 (3)
SEC (6)
