How About We Play a Little of Bilas' "Who should be in?"

Jay Bilas famously played a "Who should be in?" comparison between Kentucky and Villanova the other day during the Villanova-Syracuse game, claiming that Villanova had a better argument for getting in the NCAA tourney than UK.  How about we play a little of that ourselves?

Here are Kentucky, Villanova, and three other teams who are expected to be in the tournament:
