My seeds 1 - 4 would look like this:
I think that San Diego State needs a quality win over BYU to have a better resume than the Top 4.
The last 4 seeds were nearly impossible to predict. Purdue is a slim way away from a 4 seed. They don't have as many quality wins as Illinois, but Illinois has that one really bad loss. Illinois got the edge for the wins.
Kentucky beat Washington head to head so that gives them the edge + the quality wins. Kentucky's loss to Alabama will hurt them come tournament time if they are relatively close matched with other teams (same with Illinois).
Pittsburgh resume is really good right now.
Duke is a really good team, that loss to FSU hurts, it isn't bad, but it isn't good either. They lack the quality wins that Cuse and Pitt have, and they are not undefeated like OSU and Kansas.
I did this fairly quickly so I may re-evaluate later.

After a staggering 10 upsets in round one.... round 2 returns with 1 upset. And the last one i wanted. Purdue over Washington.
Leaving us at 11 upsets for the NCAA Tournament so far. There were 13 upsets last year. Could there be less this year? Yes. Easily. But yes there could be alot more upsets still this year than last year.
I think there could be an upset in almost all of the sweet sixteen games. I think UofL will have an easy trip to the Elite 8 though.
I think Syracuse will beat Oklahoma, and Kansas and Villanova will defeat Duke and Michigan State. So yes their could still could be a fare amount of upsets.
I think once again all 4 #1 seeds can make the Final 4... but will they? And in my opinion.. NO. I think theirs a better chance that none of them make it rather then all of them. In the Elite 8, i think kansas can beat UofL, Syracuse or Oklahoma can beat UNC, Duke or Villanova can beat Pitt, and Memphis can beat Connecticut.
Here are the teams i think can still run for the title from 1-16: (ranked from most favorable to least)
