Bracketology: West Virginia and a wild weekend

January 8, 2018 Leave a comment

Dave2015Talk about your wild weekends.  In the wake of upsets, uprisings, and some general chaos, here’s a question worth asking … Which teams, if any, will emerge as clear-cut No. 1 seeds?  In most years, we can cite at least one or two of those teams in early January.  This year?  Not so much.  As it stands right now, even the best teams have flaws, which means there’s a legitimate race ahead for those coveted top four spots on the seed list.

West Virginia held serve Saturday against Oklahoma and, for now, sits atop the South Region.  The Mountaineer are joined by Villanova (East), Oklahoma (Midwest), and Xavier (West) on the one-line.  When a group of bunched teams lose, sometimes a good loss (or an acceptable one) allows for status quo.  Either way, think about the seed list this morning the same as you do the weather.  Don’t like it much?  Give it a day or two; it’s likely to change.
