The first real Lockbox is up.
It is still early, but late enough to get some idea about the wider picture. A few thoughts to accompany this Lockbox.
1. No matter how high your non-conf RPI was, you will still have to win some conference games. This means you, Georgetown. And, Tennessee, Kansas State, and Miami-FL. Still very early, though.
2. Has their been a power conference division worse than the SEC West? Is there any SEC East team that would not win the West? Maybe Tennessee is in too much disarray and maybe South Carolina just is not good enough. But, even those two are debatable.
3. I do not believe the Big East will not send 11 teams in March. Not enough wins to go around.
A proper bracket comes on Monday.
