Mid Range Report Bracketology 2/4/2017

It's good to be back in full swing BRACKET MODE. Below is my updated bracket through games ending February 3, 2017.



Few notes on the bracket:

  • Butler is 14-3 vs. the RPI Top 100 - Dogs could arguably be a 2-seed
  • Xavier and Iowa State are both 0-5 vs. the RPI Top 25
  • Florida is loved very much by advanced metrics, but they are 1-4 vs. the RPI Top 25, and their best wins are vs. Miami and at Arkansas (#25 in the RPI)
  • Wichita State's #78 RPI rating hurts them (and Illinois State's future at-large hopes)
  • Georgetown is making an enormous push with wins vs. Oregon, at Syracuse, at Butler, and vs. Creighton
  • I can't believe I have Georgia Tech and Tennessee in the Field of 68. These teams should be terrible
  • A potential second round matchup between Gonzaga and Michigan State makes me tingle downstairs
  • Despite Florida State's recent tumbles, their resume is too good to bump them off the 2-line
