Bracketology: Villanova leads march to Madness

Dave2015With the Super Bowl behind us, Selection Sunday awaits, along with the Madness of March.  Between now and then, college basketball is sure to provide us enough plot twists to hold our attention.  Exhibit A is this past Saturday … when eight of the top 16 teams on the Seed List added a loss to their resume.  Meanwhile, teams along the cutline meander like a river without direction, and the bubble club numbers 30-plus members.  In other words, fasten your seat belt and enjoy what should be a wild four-week ride.

If you’re returning for the first time post-football, reigning NCAA champion Villanova remains entrenched as the overall No. 1 seed.  Regarding the rest of today’s No. 1 seeds, Selection Committee member value a team’s full profile over a single result (or two).  Although in a different order from last Thursday,  Gonzaga, Kansas, and Baylor continue to lead the West, Midwest, and South regions.  That said, the margins for the Jayhawks and Bears are waning.

It would take hours of conversation and pages of words to wrangle through the bubble and the process in making the final decisions for at-large spots this morning.  From eight seeds on down, every resume has holes to fill and issues to solve ahead of Championship Week.

    I know good teams sometimes have bad losses but Arkansas losing to mizzou has to kick them out of the bracket on onto the bubble right?

      Arkansas fell to the Last 4 IN (First Four). As with any big win or bad loss, it’s one game. Of equal concern for the Razorbacks, they lack victories over current at-large teams. Arkansas could use a couple of NCAA level wins in February.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
