Analysis: This is my first bracket of the year and there’s so much I could say, but I don’t have a lot of time at the moment. For now, I will just say this: nit-picking over seeds at this point is mostly meaningless because so much can change in a few weeks. I will provide more analysis as we get closer to championship week.

Notes:

  1. These reflect my prediction of the Selection Committee’s selections as if today were Selection Sunday, not a prediction of what will happen on the actual Selection Sunday.
  2. AQ only conference champions are selected by standings then RPI.
  3. These do no reflect “building the bracket” adjustments. I will make those in my final bracket prediction only.

    It must have been an error of omission but I don’t see Dayton in your brackets. If this was correct, could you give your explanation?
