Most likely field of 65:

So here's what I think the field will be in March, predicting from 1/19/06. The Key is pretty easy, * being conference winners (example, in the Patriot League, Holy Cross hosts the tourney and will probably win the auto-bid, but Bucknell's good enough for an at-large bid, too!) and ~ meaning last teams out in case of upsets. I'm thinking Temple in the A-10, Wichita State in the MVCare the most likely candidates to win their conference tourney and bump Michigan & Cincinnati from the field (and not their conference compatriots).
