In any crazy NCAA men’s basketball season, it can seem downright impossible to pick a practical bracket, and this season just may have been the craziest yet.
With the field all set and seeds all matched up, the easy way out for anyone filling out a bracket is to simply look at the higher seeds and pick for the favorites.
But if the past few months of basketball have proven anything, it’s that a No. 1 seed this season means as much as the colors on a team’s uniforms.
It may be the smarter route this year, just as it so happens, to look slightly down the rankings at the second seeds in each region of the bracket.
While, obviously, none of the No. 1 seeds should be slept on even for a second, this year’s No. 2 seeds in Duke, Ohio State, Georgetown and Miami may easily be the best four teams in the entire field.
