Oct. 5 Playoff Projections based on GPI

Rating: 2 votes, 1.50 average.
I am using our GPI to determine the teams (selected teams in orange) and believe this is a pretty good group based on if the season would end today. Remember there are 10 automatic qualifiers (listed with the projected Conf. champion in my list) and 10 at-large teams (listed as At-Large 1, 2, ect) that make the Division I playoffs.

Here are my selections and how I see the teams playing each other somewhat based on regionality as we know that the playoff committee will look to place games between teams that are in close proximity to each other if possible. The top five ranked teams in the GPI are my top five seeds.

I will put together these projections each week after the GPI is released. I will see how close these come to what our actual 20 teams will be when the group of 20 is announced on Nov. 20.
