It is that time again! March Madness is approaching very quickly and it is time to predict the field of 68. Here is a little taste of what I think the tournament would look like if it started today.
First, the number one overall seed would be the Kentucky Wildcats, who will be traveling a whopping 75 miles Northwest to Louisville for the second and third round.
Syracuse, Ohio State and North Carolina will be the other three No. 1seeds. UNC is tied with Duke and FSU in the ACC, so I am assuming UNC will be ranked higher than Duke based on Duke's loss to FSU at home compared to UNC's loss at FSU. Either way, the winner of the ACC will be either UNC or Duke and the winner will receive a #1 seed.
Schools in ALL CAPS indicate the 31 conference champions. Schools in normal font are at-large bid winners. The seeding process was done according to the quality of wins, the quality of losses, RPI and recent performance.
I will work to do a weekly "Bracketology" up until Selection Sunday (3/11/2012). I would love to hear your comments and arguments for and against where I have seeded teams.
