Where are we after December? (results through December 31, 2009)

1) Conference season is just kicking off. The non-conference season has given us a good idea as to how many teams each conference will get. Now we will begin to see movement within those conferences.
2) The Great West conference does not get an automatic bid this year (this is a correction to a previous post). No teams from this conference will get an at-large bid, therefor it opens another spot for a bubble team.
3) USC has just imposed self-sanctions that include no post-season play this year. This will be corrected in future posts.
4) Big Wins: Baylor at Alabama, Okla St. at Stanford, William & Mary at Maryland
5) Tough Losses: Florida vs. Richmond
6) Bad Losses: Florida vs. S Alabama, South Carolina at Wofford

Last 4 In: Alabama, Baylor, Xavier, Oklahoma St.
Next 4 In: Richmond, Tennessee, VA Commonwealth, Florida St.
Bubble Out: Mississippi St., Vanderbilt, Minnesota, Illinois, Cincinnati, BYU, Old Dominion, Maryland
