Powell’s Field of 68

Just to see how I would fare in predicting the NCAA Tournament, I am putting together my list of teams that should be in and their expected seeds.  The goal of this exercise is to see if I can join the 40/60/68 club – 40 teams with correct seed, 60 teams within one seed, and 68 teams included.

The original claim to the 40/60 club came here

1 Seeds – Ohio State, Kansas, Duke, Pitt
2 Seeds – Texas, Notre Dame, San Diego State, UConn
3 Seeds – Purdue, Syracuse, Louisville, UNC
4 Seeds – Kentucky, Florida, BYU, Arizona
5 Seeds – Wisconsin, St. Johns, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt
6 Seeds – Kansas State, Xavier, Temple, West Virginia
7 Seeds – Old Dominion, Georgetown, Cincinnati, UNLV
