With the University of Georgia and Lakeland tournaments in the books, all of the allotted bids have been earned. Including ghost bids, there were 342 bids earned this year with 81 teams guaranteeing their spot at this year’s TOC. Another 51 teams ended with one bid, which is no small feat.
As a reminder, this is an unofficial count and the great folks at the University of Kentucky and within the TOC will have the final say. That said, I’ve greatly enjoyed tracking bids with you over the course of the year and cannot wait to see some excellent debates at the TOC.
