My College Basketball Top 25 – Bracket Edition

I’ve decided it’s time to shake things up.  Instead of doing the rankings as usual, I’m going to transition to something more like Bracket seeding.  It was a wild weekend in college basketball and it’s starting to get serious with the bracketology.  I thought I would take a look at a couple of the high profile brackets and then come up with my own seeding, about the first 6 seeds.  I’m looking at the brackets from Lunardi, Palm, NBC and Bracket Wag.  It looks like a couple of these haven’t updated since the losses on Saturday, but it gives me a starting point.

Not all the brackets provided a true seed list, but I did my best to figure it out.  By averaging them, the true seeding list (1-6) would be something like:

  1. Kansas
  2. Baylor
  3. San Diego St
  4. Gonzaga
  5. Dayton
  6. Duke
  7. Maryland
  8. Florida St.
  9. Creighton
  10. Seton Hall
  11. Villanova
  12. Kentucky
  13. Louisville
  14. Penn St
  15. Oregon
  16. West Virginia
  17. Auburn
  18. Colorado
  19. Butler
  20. Michigan St
  21. Iowa
  22. Arizona
  23. Ohio St
  24. Marquette

Like I said, a couple of these brackets haven’t been updated since the Saturday games.  Arizona, Ohio St, and Marquette, as well as BYU and Michigan, didn’t appear in the top six seeds of all the brackets.  I did a guesstimate to come up with this average of the top 1-6 seeds.  So, that’s going to be what I start with.  I’ll provide my true seeding below and then continue to update until Selection Sunday.

  1. Kansas
  2. Baylor
  3. San Diego St
  4. Gonzaga
  5. Dayton
  6. Florida St
  7. Duke
  8. Maryland
  9. Kentucky
  10. Villanova
  11. Creighton
  12. Seton Hall
  13. Oregon
  14. Louisville
  15. Auburn
  16. West Virginia
  17. Penn St
  18. Colorado
  19. Arizona
  20. Ohio St
  21. Michigan
  22. BYU
  23. Michigan St
  24. Iowa
