Examining the Expert Predictions for the NCAA Tournament Field at Week 16
Josh H. Holmberg-USA TODAY Sports

The NCAA tournament tips off in less than four weeks, but the experts in the field of bracketology remain in substantial disagreement over which schools will be involved, let alone where they will be seeded.

In the six expert brackets studied, there are eight different teams—Arizona State, Baylor, Charlotte, Iowa State, Kentucky, Saint Mary's, Temple and Virginia—that appear in at least two of the brackets while also not appearing in at least two others.

Depending on which expert you ask, Missouri is projected for anywhere between a No. 6 seed and a No. 12 seed. Apparently, there's some debate over whether Butler deserves a No. 3 seed or a No. 8 seed.

Along the top lines, Gonzaga, Kansas and Michigan State are each varying by two full seed lines from one bracket to another.

In fact, the only thing the experts unanimously agree on are Miami and Indiana as No. 1 seeds, and strangely enough Marquette as a No. 4 seed.

The lesson, as always, is that there's a lot left to be determined. But let's take a look at what the experts' projected fields are looking like at the start of what's certain to be another crazy week of college hoops.
