Bracketology 1.0

This is the first of three versions of Bracketology which will be done from now until Selection Sunday.   The 2nd will come at the end of the regular season.  The third will be released an hour prior to the brackets being announced.  So here goes my best Joe Lunardi impression. (did not look at his version once when doing this.)

Used many different criteria in making the selections (Conference Record, RPI, Kenpom Rating etc..) But for me the thing that separated teams from each other were wins against top teams or the lack thereof.   It will become apparent quickly that I valued “quality” wins for my seeding purposes.

The top overall seed is Pittsburgh.
