I have chosen Kansas State and Rhode Island as my last two at-large teams.
Illinois drops out following a series of Saturday events:
-Northwestern gets destroyed by Wisconsin, making that sweep less impressive.
-Rhode Island doesn’t just beat a good Davidson team, but crushes them. In front of an anxious audience, they looked the part of a tournament team.
-Most importantly, ILLINOIS FIRED JOHN GROCE! 🔥 Even if the committee wanted to put Illinois in, how do you when they just fired their coach?
So, my field of 68 is set, with USC, Kansas State, Wake Forest, and Rhode Island just making it.
