    Some of these seeds are ridiculous but it's about like football playoff standings

    Ohio State behind UNC is a joke. I know I’m biased but that’s just silly. I know these rankings mean nothing, but a team with 5 losses vs 7 and 2 top 5 wins vs 1. What possible metrics could they be using?

    Kansas a two seed ahead of Michigan State a 3 seed? This whole system makes zero sense? Why even release these rankings if you are just going to throw them together with zero thought involved?

    NKU as a 16 seed would be fun to watch. Don’t think they could beat any of those 1 seeds but they could put a scare into them.

    Those brackets are very favorable to UC & Xavier.

    You’ve got Texas Tech in there twice. I didnt watch the show but I assume you’ve got one of those switch for Michigan State?

    A UC/Virginia regional final would have quite a pace to it...

    I'm sorry had to rearrange it and missed that the #3 in the south should have been Michigan State.

    I was thinking the same thing. Put them against the right #1 seed and we may have history......

    No matter what I'm hoping to be able to root for NKU this year. I still think it was an asinine decision to have them play UK in round 1.

    I'll be rooting for the Norse as long as they remain alive.
