Today is a day I have been waiting for, Selection Sunday. The 68 team field will be released today, and I have a lot to say. This year, we probably have the biggest bubble ever. I will seed the 11 of the 16 seeds in this blog with some reasoning for some teams.
1 Seeds: Virginia, Villanova, Kansas, Michigan
You may think that I’m crazy putting Michigan in as a one seed and not Xavier, but Michigan won the Big Ten Tournament and Xavier lost in the semifinal. Also, their conferences have pretty close to the same skill level.
2 seeds: Xavier, North Carolina, Michigan St., Duke
3 seeds: Gonzaga, Cincinnati, Purdue, Texas Tech
4 seeds: Wichita St., Tennessee, Arizona, Auburn
5 seeds: Ohio St., West Virginia, Clemson, Kentucky
6 seeds: Houston, Florida, Miami, TCU
7 seeds: Virginia Tech, Seton Hall, Creighton, Arkansas
8 seeds: NC St., Kansas St., Providence, Louisville
9 seeds: Louisville, Missouri, Butler, Texas A&M
10 seeds: Nevada, Davidson, Florida St., USC
11 seeds (Last Four In): Oklahoma St., Notre Dame, Baylor, St. Bonaventure
