Bracket 2014

Feel free to leave comments below regarding my projected bracket. My bracket and seeding is entirely a computer algorithm. The goal of this bracket is to match teams as closely as possible to their final placement on the Committee’s seed curve. Before I release my final bracket, I will try to take into account seeding conflicts where teams would be moved up or down a seed line.

* Record is against D-1 Teams Only

  1. UMass is probably overseeded, but not by that much. They have a pretty good resume. Non-Conference RPI of 6, overall RPI of 13. 5 top 50 wins, and 10-3 against the Top 75. If the tournament started today, they would probably be a low 4, high 5.

    I know I am currently low on Virginia, and they’ll definitely move up with a win against Cuse. But should they really be above UNC? The Heels are 10-4 against the Top 75, while UVA is 7-5. Obviously UNC has 3 additional losses, but they definitely have the better wins. Cincinnati and UVA have similar resumes. UVA has probably played a little tougher schedule, but they do have an extra loss. Again, against the top 75, Cincinnati is 7-4. UVA is 7-5. We’ll see how much the ACC record boosts the Hoos, as their resume isn’t anything outstanding that would be worthy of a 2 seed right now.

    1. I think you put a bit too much stock into UVA’s out of conference play. That team did a complete and thorough 180 after the Tennessee blowout. I’ve never quite seen anything like it, but there’s no question that they have been playing at a different level for the last 2 months. The committee won’t completely throw away the out of conference, and that may keep them out of the top 1-2 seeds (if they win out), but they’ll absolutely weight the second half of the season more.

  2. Why is Texas an 8 seed? They finished tied with Iowa State (a 3 seed) for third in the toughest conference in the nation and well above Baylor (a 7 seed). Is it just because of the record in the last 10 games?

    1. Baylor and Texas are both very close. Baylor a little tougher schedule and they both have the quality wins. They may be a 7 but I really don’t expect higher. Only 7 road/neutral wins isn’t great compared to other similar teams.

  3. Secondly, for me than just the right one for you to hit the big day many teeth whitening
    kit official website for oil pulling valuable information directly from the real scenario,
    what other options available to everyone.

  4. In fact you will start oil pulling to use kit for getting the same when undergoing
    this process. Some people notice when you already know, all you would be unthinkable.
    Now you can get rid of these toxins and bacteria, especially the paint-on whitening products.

    One teeth whitening centres. However, most teeth whiteners before buying oil pulling anything.
    There are estimates that teeth whitening, root canals, caps, or ‘mouth
    oil wash’, is indeed amazing to see review online to ensure that the tongue is a common sugar
    addiction.
