Anyone know why they do a "top 144" instead of top 100, or 150, or something like that?

I think part of it is with the auto bids, that's why they don't do just the top 100.

It's fun to look at.

I have no real opinion on the early ones. It will be interesting to see this list get revealed more, especially October and early November.

It's brutal seeing the MVC in that cluster. It goes to show just how bad it's getting out there.

I think UNI may finally lose its coach after this season, especially if they play like the have the past few years (minus last season). What's to keep him around now that Wichita escaped?

I am shocked they had to go at least 144 to include Georgia 04-jawdrop

Since they are announcing one team per day, planning to announce #1 on the opening day of the season, it could be that they just counted how many days were left when they finished ranking everybody.

Seems to me that the announcement of #1 will be the most anti-climactic announcement in history.

Approximate number of postseason teams?

NCAA -- 68
NIT -- 32
CBI -- 16
CIT -- 26-32

So 142-148, not counting the Vegas 16 that didn't exist when they started doing this and probably no longer exists.

Jacobson has a million dollar deal at UNI. His recruiting background is Minnesota, Dakotas, Iowa and Wisconsin. That's why he hasn't left.
