Here is how our new point score works.

 

1. We gather 30 of the top national bracketology ratings, with their list of 68 teams ranked by seeding.

 

2. For every #1-seed, we award 30 points, 29 points for a #2-seed, 28 points for a #3-seed, and so forth down to 1 point for a #16-seed.  Any team that does not appear on a particular bracketology ranking receives no points.

 

3. We then add the total points for each team and divide by 30, rounding to two digits.  Thus if a team appears as a number 6 seed on 24 bracketology lists and as a number 7 seed on the other 6, it gets 25 points times 24 plus 24 points times 6 which equals 744.  Divide 744 by 30, and the answer is 24.8 points.

 

4. The four teams with the highest point total are our #1-seeds.  The next four are our #2-seeds, and so forth.  The last four at-large teams are placed as #12-seeds, even if mid-major conference champions with automatic bids score higher in points.  These last four are the opening round (play-in) teams and will be #12 seeds.

 

5. In the league where there will be just one bid awarded, we take the team that scores the most points.  If a second team has a higher point total than one of our at-large teams, they do not jump ahead.

 

6. If a possible mid-major has a chance to become an at-large team if they do not win their conference championship, this will be noted in the conference breakdown, but for our purposes, we do not predict any upsets and go with the top-rated team to represent the one-bid leagues.
