I always wanted to be a part of the NCAA tournament selection process, baby!
I know it is a tough job deciding who those last few teams will be in that conference room before the brackets are released. It is not easy to project the field before the season as injuries and other things can derail good teams.
I am going to give it my best shot, looking into my crystal ball for the 2016-17 season. Here is my look at a field of 68. Keep this and see how I did against the real one at season's end.
