Next 6 Out: VCU, Butler, Florida, Clemson, Creighton, Arizona

Two things to note. There isn't much separation between the last 10 teams in and the first 6 out. Two, the big separation really is at the the 9 seed mark. From there you see a pretty big drop off where teams have low amounts of group 1/2 wins, multiple group 3/4 losses, awful SOS, etc. Each year the bubble seems to get worse and worse.
