Let’s just say college football had a 64-team playoff. Don't say a word, just go with it. We explored this exercise before college basketball’s bracket extravaganza began, seeding the top 64 teams from the 2012 college football season in a hypothetical bracket of our own.
Is this hypothetical at all possible? Absolutely not (hence the "hypothetical" disclaimer). Is that going to stop us from taking this one unnecessary step further? Oh, absolutely not.
We got past the seeding, listened to your “polite” feedback when it comes to our good-looking and multi-talented selection committee (a.k.a. me), and now we have actual results.
We’re not just making a hypothetical bracket. We’re having ourselves a hypothetical tournament extravaganza.
Using the results from this year’s actual college basketball postseason, we’ve gone ahead and filled in the blanks.
All the seeds that moved on in each bracket have moved on here, and the results are rather interesting considering the madness that has unfolded on the hardwood. Also, sorry, Oregon fans. Blame Gonzaga.
How did we get to this point? We've got hypothetical analysis to explain each region.
And again, before your sprint to the nearest comment section to express your displeasure, please note that these results mirror that of college basketball’s bracket.
You may now sprint to the nearest comment section to express your displeasure.
