NCAA Tournament 2014: Ranking All 68 Teams
Phil Sandlin/Associated Press

The NCAA tournament's selection committee is supposed to seed the field based on a team's entire resume.

In these rankings, I throw out seeding. What matters is how teams are playing right now and who has the best shot at winning a national title.

Easy enough, right?

Not this year. Wichita State is undefeated but hasn't played anyone of note since December. Florida looks like the national-title favorite but plays in a weak SEC. Kansas has looked downright dominant at times with Joel Embiid, but will Andrew Wiggins carry his team far enough for the big man to ever play again?

As I look up and down these rankings, I could see teams in the 30s making a Final Four run.

Get ready for a crazy next three weeks.
