Bracketology: Kansas Holds Overall #1

It’s starting to feel a lot like March Madness.  Take Saturday, for example.  I watched St. Bonaventure shock Dayton on the road, Texas A & M beat Kentucky in overtime on a buzzer beater, after one of the strangest final 10 seconds I’ve ever seen, and Indiana hold on to beat Purdue by 4 after nearly blowing a 19-point lead late.  The energy and effort level in the games are going up, as every team is doing all they can to move up the rankings (or in some cases, move down – see LSU, with blowout losses at Tennessee and Arkansas in the last 4 days).

With that said, here are my new seedings.  Moves up or down are in parentheses, projected auto qualifiers are in bold.
