A seed is just a number, right?
Seedings for the NCAA tournament are based on a team's performance during the regular season and in their conference tourneys, but this isn't a scientific designation.
A selection committee votes to select, seed and slot all 68 teams, and with its subjective nature, there's plenty of room for debate.
Determining which teams are too high or too low is a common debate following the announcement of the field. For those on the bottom end of that spectrum, they also get tabbed with the vague "underrated" label.
This tournament is no different, and we've identified 10 schools that, either because of their seeding or diminished expectations, are the most underrated in the 2014 NCAA tournament.
