NCAA Tournament Pool On ESPN

Go to http://games.espn.com/tournament-challe ... pID=707314 and the password is flyingdf.

I may post a lot of comments about the seeds later. Here are some to start off:

1. North Carolina Central went 22-8 with the second easiest strength of schedule out of 351. As a result, they're 202 in the RPI with a better winning percentage than three of the top 21 and six of the top 31 of the RPI.

2. Northwestern got an 8 seed in their first NCAA Tournament, and their game against Vanderbilt will be the only Round of 64 game where a top 8 seed doesn't have the better RPI.

3. Texas Southern plays in the weak Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). Their RPI was 103rd, which is better than usual for the best SWAC team, but the Selection Committee didn't like them. They got a 16 seed with a better RPI than one team seeded 14 or 15 in every bracket. Last year they led the SWAC in RPI in 182nd. In six of the seven seasons before them, the SWAC did not have a team in the Top 150.
