Final Update: March 14

This is the final update of numbers for the 2015-2016 season. I've also got a final non-automated human-generated bracket prediction on the Bracket Prediction page. Spoiler alert: it looks like this:

I can't recall any year where so few #1 seeds from conference tournaments earned automatic bids to the NCAA tournament. But almost all of these upsets came in conferences where only one team was going to get a bid anyways. The exception is the West Coast Conference, where San Francisco's two-point victory over the BYU Cougars in the championship game effectively means that one fewer bubble team is going to get into the tournament. The popped team, in the S-Factor's opinion, is North Carolina State. Call me skeptical.

Now in:
San Francisco
Missouri State
Robert Morris
Alabama State

Now out:
North Carolina State
Florida Gulf Coast
Central Michigan
Arkansas Little Rock
Northern Iowa
Southern U.
