A couple of comments on this bracket:
1) I still think Louisville will be the 4th #1 seed, although I think the chances of another team being the 4th #1 have increased some since yesterday. I think the second most likely scenario is that the Duke/UVA winner will be a #1 seed. I also think there’s a chance Michigan could grab that spot.
2) In my rankings, there is a 3 team grouping for the last spot, with Arkansas nudging out Cal and Tennessee. I don’t really think the committee will pick Arkansas over Tennessee, however, so I’ve included Tennessee in the field.
3) Of the 2 Sun Belt teams playing for the championship today, I have Georgia St ranked as a #13 seed and UL Lafayette ranked as a #15 seed. Given the fact that I don’t think the committee will create 2 separate brackets with different seeds for these 2 teams, I’ve averaged their seed rank and slotted the winner in as a #14 seed.
