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.
