Last teams out: Texas A&M, Virginia, Seton Hall, St. Johns, Providence, Pitt

Made a couple slight changes vs. last night.  Boise State and Colorado State have similar resumes, but Boise's top end wins are better, which will get them on the 8 line.  I wrongly assumed St. Peter's resume was as good as Fairfield's, but it is not, so they go down to 16 and Longwood comes up to 15.  Colgate, Long Beach, and WKU are all pretty similar, but most metrics have Colgate the highest so I moved them up to the 14 line.
