The only thing worse than picking the eventual national champion to lose on the first day of the tournament is having your projected national champion lose its first game. To help you avoid that disaster scenario, we've identified the most overrated teams to watch out for in your bracket-picking adventures.
By "overrated," we're talking about teams who are unlikely to perform as well as their seed would be expected to do. For example, a No. 1 seed that won't make the Final Four is overrated. A No. 3 seed that won't make the Sweet 16 is overrated. A No. 6 seed that won't win a single game is overrated.
You get the gist.
In many cases, it's because of the team's draw. In a few slides, you'll come across Wichita State. That isn't meant to be an argument that the Shockers didn't deserve a No. 1 seed; rather, it's an acknowledgment of the fact that their path to the Final Four is practically impossible.
In other situations, we are arguing that the team was regarded too highly by the committee and never should have gotten the seed that it did.
Either way, here are the 10 teams that will exit the tournament earlier than the committee thinks they should.
