LAMM AT LARGE: The NCAA Has a Seeding Problem

todayMarch 22, 2022

The so-called experts who doing the seedings for the NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship don’t know any more than you and I. As usual, the brackets are a mess.
For example: Seeds 1-4 went 10-6 on the opening weekend. That’s actually great considering seeds 5-8 went 1-15. That’s not a typo. Four of the remaining 16 teams are double-digit seeds, a fourth of the field.
There’s more about the unknown heading into the weekend. The SEC was regarded as the strongest conference, but only 4th-seeded Arkansas survived among the six teams entered. The ACC was rated weak, but it has three teams still playing.
For what it’s worth, 14 states are still represented, including Florida with Miami. Only North Carolina (Duke, UNC) and Texas (Texas Tech, Houston) have two.
I know seeding the teams is difficult, near impossible. My advice to the committee is quit trying. maybe name the No. 1 and 16 seeds and draw the rest out a hat.
Would this weekend’s Sweet 16 lineup look much different?
