After the first week of the tournament, we've lost one legitimate title contender (Wichita State) and another with the talent to go on a run (Kansas), but the big picture doesn't look much different than when we started.
Well, I take that back. Are we buying Kentucky as a legitimate contender again? Had the Cats played like they did against Wichita State all season, they would have been worthy of their preseason No. 1 tag. One more win and I'd be willing to buy their stock.
There are a few other dark-horse contenders (Tennessee and Baylor) that flexed their muscle this weekend, but again, the pre-bracket favorites (Florida, Michigan State, Arizona, Virginia, Louisville and Michigan) are still alive.
And if the NCAA would like to give Wichita State a redo, would anyone be opposed?
Not allowed? OK. Let's take a look at the title odds for the 16 teams remaining. They're listed from least likely to win the title to most likely based off the regular season and tournament performance to date. If I were put in charge of a casino in Vegas (bad idea), these are the odds I'd give them.
