If today were Selection Sunday

My seeds 1 - 4 would look like this:

1 Seeds

2 Seeds

3 Seeds

4 Seeds

Some Thoughts:

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.
