B2 Bracketology – Hypothetical Playoffs

Cuz I Can

So watching the #9 seeded UConn Huskies Beat up on #8 seed Georgetown got me thinking. Both those teams are in the top 25 of the country, but are the #9 and #8 seeds in their conference. I know the Big East is good, but that’s absurd! They’re likely to get 9-11 bids in the big Dance this season. Jebus that’s a lot.

Of course, if we were to take the 36 B2 4v4 teams, make a 32 team tournament, how many would come from the B2 East? Let’s find out ! Yes, I know we’re only 2/3rds through the season, but you’re telling me they don’t start projecting for the field in January? Please – let’s see how close we are at the end of the season hmmmm?

Let’s name the 4 divisions Blue, White, Green, Red – 8 per, ranked 1-8 with their overall seed in (). I’ll also include the divisions they represent. Make sense? God I hope not, let’s take a look and discuss (here on the boards! http://boards.cacbasketball.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3882)who would be in your final four, how bad my rankings are, and what you’d do differently! (burke, does this make up for the lack of lines this week?)

Discuss! And yes this is what I’ve spent my after noon doing instead of the rest of the B2 East write-ups

Here’s the breakdown by Division
East -11 bids – 1, 3, 5, 9, 10, 17, 20, 22, 23, 26, 29 = 15
South – 7 bids – 7, 8, 12, 14, 15, 27, 31 = 16.42
West – 7 bids – 4, 6, 13, 18, 24, 25, 30 = 17.1
North – 7 bids – 2, 11, 16, 19, 21, 28, 32 = 18.4
