Bracket: Jayhawks’ resume boosts KU to top line

dave1Kansas finds itself in familiar territory heading into Super Bowl weekend.  Thanks to a resume that includes 11 Top 100 RPI wins and the nation’s top-rated (overall) strength of schedule, the Jayhawks claim the final No. 1 seed in today’s bracket.  KU also leads the Big 12, arguably the deepest conference in college basketball.

Bracket Projection – January 30

Seed List – January 30

Kentucky and Virginia remain firmly entrenched as the top two seeds.  And Gonzaga keeps it’s hold on the West, but will be challenged for that spot as we march toward Selection Sunday.  Those also pushing the top line: Arizona and Wisconsin.  Notre Dame continues its climb.  But it’s worth noting that a weak non-conference SOS could ultimately impact the Irish’s final landing spot.

As for teams around the cutline, it’s a muddled mess.  Resumes resemble Swiss cheese; in other words, it’s not difficult to find the holes.  It’s also a bit odd to find teams such as Syracuse, Michigan, Connecticut, and Florida on the outside looking in.  Will one of them make a February run?  The clock is ticking.
