The NCAA's Quad system has a major role in how the NCAA tournament field is selected and seeded. And according to, we have a pretty good guess of what a win over each Southeastern Conference team might be worth at season's end.

The website released its projections for the coming year as to what quadrant a win over every SEC team would fall into, whether that game was at home, on the road or a natural site. Here are HeatCheck's projections:

Team (road, neutral, home)

Alabama (1, 1, 1)

Arkansas (1, 1, 1)

Auburn (1, 1, 1)

Florida (1, 1, 1)

Georgia (3, 4, 4)

Kentucky (1, 1, 1)

LSU (1, 1, 1)

Ole Miss (1, 2, 2)

Mississippi State (1, 2, 2)

Missouri (2, 3, 3)

South Carolina (2, 3, 3)

Tennessee (1, 1, 1)

Texas A&M (2, 3, 3)

Vanderbilt (2, 2, 3)

With just 30 teams counting as Quad 1 home wins, this suggests that Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, LSU and Tennessee should make the NCAA tournament, with Ole Miss and Mississippi State potentially being bubble teams.
