Marquette, LSU, Georgia, ND, Penn State, and Maryland and several others are probably out without making it to conference tournament finals. Hard to see many 13 loss teams that are currently outside the bracket making it in and each of the listed above are at 12 now.

This is more of a reactionary update rather than a full data scrub. A lot of teams 6 seed and below lost but didn't move down or sometimes even moved up a spot because there just aren't that many teams with solid profiles. From last prediction 4 of the last 6 in lost, but I don't have anyone moving out. This will likely change with the Monday update.
