About a month until the end of the regular season and the college men’s volleyball bracketology continues to get more intriguing with Selection Sunday slowly approaching.
Off the Block throughout this month will release weekly bracketology updates of what teams still have a chance at the two at-large bids to the NCAA Tournament.
Teams each week will be placed into four categories based on real-time match results — in contention, still kind of in contention, fringe of contention and out of contention.
For these calculations and category placements, Off the Block used a variety of factors including a team’s overall record, projected conference RPI and historical win-loss data of at-large teams in recent years. In addition, the calculations do not use projected results of future matches.
Check out what college men’s volleyball teams still have a chance at earning an at-large bid.
