Bracketology 2/5/18

A huge weekend sees many changes- headlined by a new #1 seed: Auburn. With both Kansas and Duke losing, I had lots of  options at the end of the 1-line, but Auburn has such a depth of quality wins that I chose them over Xavier and Kansas.

I also re-evaluated every team's resume yesterday, and there's a lot of moves during that. Some teams (such as Duke, Ohio State and TCU) have less meat on their resume than I realized, while others (such as Rhode Island, Alabama and Washington) have more.

2: Xavier, Kansas, Cincinnati, Clemson
3: Texas Tech, Tennessee, Michigan State, Duke
4: Kentucky, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, North Carolina

6: St. Mary's, Wichita State, Florida State, Seton Hall

10: Washington, Arizona State, Texas A&M, Arkansas
11: Houston, Middle Tennessee, USC, (North Carolina State/LSU)
12: (Georgia/Kansas State), New Mexico State, Loyola Chicago, Louisiana

14: Northern Kentucky, Belmont, South Dakota State, UC Santa Barbara
15: Bucknell, Florida Gulf Coast, Charleston, Rider
16: Wagner, Penn, (UNC Asheville/Nicholls State), (North Carolina A&T/Arkansas Pine Bluff)
