    I don't get the NCAA seeding at all

    Wisconsin has 8 losses and an RPI of 20 and is a 4 seed. They are in the Big 10
    Texas has 9 losses and an RPI of 28 and is an 8 seed. They are in the Big 12

    How does that make sense?

    I thought Wisconsin received a generous seed, agreed.

    Wisconsin also played a good chunk of their season without their best player.

    Maybe too much disparity, but Texas really didn't finish the second half of the season well at all.

    Re: I don't get the NCAA seeding at all

    With out putting to much thought into it I would see Texas got a lower seed because it seemed they really slipped towards the end of the year.

    Michigan St had 8 losses. An RPI of 32 and got a 5 seed. I just don't get it

    There's more than just W-L and RPI considered.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Notre Dame as a 6 seems high to me too.

    Tom Izzo is their coach. That is the difference. They ar ejus a team you never count out. They play above their seed most every year and they are being rewarded.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Man, I wish the Cyclones were playing in this. It is fun, but nowhere near as much without ISU.

    Yeah I know. But you also have to look at it and see that the Big 12 is superior to the Big 10 this year. That has to favor for Texas too
