Dantheman's December 20th Bracketology Q & A

Bracketology | S-Curve Rankings

My latest bracketology is out. Here's my thoughts on the latest batch:
  • The four #1 seeds are easy to identify. Despite the fact that Purdue and West Virginia are undefeated, at this point it is clear that Kansas, Texas, Kentucky, and Syracuse would be the #1 seeds.
  • The Mountain West has two teams as #5 seeds. In the end, I doubt that happens, but at this point I feel like both New Mexico and UNLV deserve high seeds.
  • Washington and Ohio State are two #3 seeds I'm very shaky on, but at this moment I don't know who else really deserves a 3. Washington is slotted there because the Huskies are the projected Pac 10 champs. Evan Turner's loss leaves the Buckeyes seed up in the air. If Ohio State can play well without Turner, the Buckeyes could still be in line for a very high seed when he returns.
  • Georgetown, Florida, and Gonzaga all lost Saturday but none fall very far. Why? There's not many options to replace them early on. The Hoyas lost to ODU, Florida lost to Richmond, and Gonzaga was run off the floor at Madison Square Garden by Duke.
  • Kansas remains the #1 seed overall in the tournament after its win over Michigan. Tuesday night's game with California will be a big game for the Bears NCAA Tournament resume, so the Jayhawks better be ready to get tested. 
Top Four Seed Lines: Bracketology
1. Kansas, Texas, Kentucky, Syracuse
2. Duke, West Virginia, Purdue, Villanova
3. Kansas State, Michigan State, Washington, Ohio State
4. North Carolina, Connecticut, Mississippi, Texas A&M

Dantheman's December 20th Bracketology Q & A

Florida would play MSU in the second round. I thought that's not allowed since they already played.

In most cases it would be avoided because rematches are avoided until the Sweet 16. I will swap Tennessee and Florida to make it work.
