Dave2015Another Selection Sunday is coming to a close.  The actual 2017 NCAA Tournament Bracket has been revealed.  So the questions is …. how did our projection end up?

Here are the details (updated)…

  • Correctly selected all 36 at-large teams (36/36)
  • 44 teams were seeded on the correct seed line
  • 21 teams were seeded within one line of correct seed line
  • 3 teams were within two seed lines
  • Total … 65/68 teams either on or within one seed line

A huge thanks to everyone who visits the site and participates in the process.  You are the reason I do this.  I love talking brackets and hoops with fellow college basketball fans.  It should be a great tournament.  The Madness is about to begin.


Bracketology: Villanova earns No. 1 overall seed

Dave2015Selection Sunday is here. Tonight, the Selection Committee will reveal its 2017 NCAA tournament bracket.  While there will be a healthy debate about whether Duke’s late-season run should vault them onto the No. 1 seed line, what we do know – or at least believe – is that reigning champ Villanova will be the No. 1 overall seed.

For now, North Carolina remains the top seed in the South Region.  It may change this afternoon.  Either way, your top line figures to end up with Villanova (East), Kansas (Midwest), North Carolina/Duke (South), Gonzaga (West).

With league favorites winning most of their conference tournaments, potential bid thieves have largely been eliminated.  The biggest bubble debate figures to be centered around Syracuse.  Will the Orange’s high quality wins outweigh its losses, record-high RPI, and poor record away from the Carrier Dome?  That’s something we won’t know for sure until tonight.
