Adjustments Based on Selection Committee’s Reveal

Beginning today, some of our bracketology seedings have been affected by our reaction to the NCAA Selection Committee’s interpretation of the same data we look at.  As the season continues and we have time to look at each resume, we will begin to analyze the teams more based on what we believe the Selection Committee thinks rather than determining which teams deserve to be in the field based on the NCAA’s selection criteria.

When all is said and done, the Committee members vote on the teams in the dance, and human bias obviously comes into play.  Like the best political spin doctors, the committee can always spin the data in favor of teams they prefer to be in the field and then spin the data in opposition to teams they excluded.
