1/8

After an absolutely crazy weekend the standings have yet changed again!! If this is surprising to you, buckle up because this is just the beginning. As I have been doing this I usually see 1 or 2 teams who have pretty much guaranteed themselves a one seed by this time of the year with maybe 4 to 6 other teams who are fighting for those last two spots. However, this year I honestly can see 8 maybe 10 teams who are making a case for a 1 seed with no one realty separating themselves. It’s going to be a long a fun conference season! This week doesn’t bring too much to the table but still some games to see.                Tuesday: Texas A&M @ Kentucky, Texas Tech @ Oklahoma, Baylor @ West Virginia, Syracuse @ Virginia, Butler @ Creighton, Seton Hall @ Marquette                                            Wednesday: Xavier @ Villanova, Louisville @ Florida State, Georgia @ Missouri, TCU @ Texas                                                                                                                                                          Thursday: Maryland @ Ohio State, Clemson @ NC State, Utah @ UCLA                                    Friday: Marquette @ Butler

1/6 Seed List

After a crazy week of basketball plenty of things have changed since my last posting. These rankings do not represent what I believe the best teams are, however they represent what teams have the overall best resumes. Lots of teams are still in the hunt and as conference play is upon us it is important for everyone to do everything they can to remain within the seed list. All Automatic Qualifiers are awarded to the highest team ranked within the conference, if no team is ranked then the current leader in conference standings is used. As always don’t forget to give the Bracket Matrix a look!

New Year, New Rankings (1/1)

Happy New Year!!! With the new year upon us the season is beginning to feel more and more like March. Multiple top ten teams have been falling every week but are able to bounce back and try to regain a stronghold to solidify there NCAA tournament berth and the best seed that they can achieve. With this new year my rankings are switching over to be more of a seed list. Teams will be ranked based on their overall resume and not based on who I truly believe is the best team in the country. Seed list should be posted every week and the hopes are putting a bracket out once or twice a month. Without further ado here are the first rankings 2018!
