Update before the March 10 games. From today onward is where things get wacky, with lots of changes.

Please note that Georgia Tech has snuck into the very end of my field here – I’ve been debating putting them in for the last week, and after really looking hard at their profile in contrast to the A-10 teams, I don’t see why they’re not in the field.
