At this point, Michigan is the final No. 5 seed (No. 20 on our S-curve) after Wednesday night's win at Penn State.
Trending downward is Oklahoma. Yet, despite some saying Oklahoma is in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament, the Sooners are still a No. 6 seed (and No. 23 on the S-curve). Why? Quite simply, the games in November and December still matter. If nonconference and early-conference games didn't matter, then why does NCSOS come into play? Why not just pick the teams who are the hottest and put them in the tournament (see Baylor et al)? Oklahoma might find itself in an interesting 7/10 game if the struggles continue, but that's as the No. 7 seed - one that definitely isn't on the bubble.
