Preseason Bracket Projections for 2014-2015

This is the first time I've ever done a preseason projection.  I don't put a whole lot of stock in these projections since nobody has even played a game yet, but here's what I have as of right now.  This is largely based upon a combination of how teams finished last year, returning players, recruiting classes, and expected SOS.  I expect this will change significantly throughout the season.

1 Seeds:  DUKE, KENTUCKY, WISCONSIN, KANSAS
2 Seeds:  ARIZONA, Louisville, Florida, Ohio State
3 Seeds:  North Carolina, Virginia, Michigan State, VILLANOVA
4 Seeds:  CONNECTICUT, Texas, Syracuse, VCU

Bracket Projection - Final (with contingencies)

Here's my final bracket projection for the year along with contingencies for the games today (I won't have time between when games end and selections are announced to update them, though I will adjust the projection to reflect the contingencies listed here at some point).

1 Seeds:  FLORIDA, Arizona, WICHITA STATE, MICHIGAN
2 Seeds:  Villanova, Kansas, Duke, VIRGINIA
3 Seeds:  Wisconsin, IOWA STATE, LOUISVILLE, Creighton
4 Seeds:  Syracuse, Michigan State, San Diego State, UCLA
5 Seeds:  Cincinnati, VCU, Ohio State, Connecticut
6 Seeds:  NEW MEXICO, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Kentucky
7 Seeds:  Baylor, Saint Louis, GONZAGA, Oregon
8 Seeds:  Texas, Massachusetts, George Washington, Pittsburgh
9 Seeds:  Oklahoma State, Memphis, Colorado, Pittsburgh
10 Seeds:  Kansas State, Tennessee, Iowa, SMU
11 Seeds:  PROVIDENCE, Arizona State, St. Joseph's, Xavier, BYU
12 Seeds:  Nebraska, Dayton, HARVARD, NORTH DAKOTA STATE, STEPHEN F AUSTIN
13 Seeds:  MANHATTAN, TULSA, GEORGIA STATE, NEW MEXICO STATE
14 Seeds:  DELAWARE, WESTERN MICHIGAN, MERCER, NC CENTRAL
15 Seeds:  EASTERN KENTUCKY, AMERICAN, WI MILWAUKEE, WEBER STATE
16 Seeds:  WOFFORD, ALBANY, CAL POLY, MOUNT ST MARY'S, COASTAL CAROLINA, TEXAS SOUTHERN

Last 4 Byes:  Iowa, SMU, Arizona State, St. Joseph's
Last 4 In:  Xavier, BYU, Nebraska, Dayton
First 4 Out:  Florida State, Minnesota, Southern Miss, Green Bay
Next 4 Out:  California, Louisiana Tech, NC State, St. John's

Contingencies:
Sun Belt - if La-Lafayette wins they replace Georgia State in the field but get a 14 seed.  Delaware moves up to a 13 seed.
ACC - no seed changes regardless of winner
A10 - no seed changes regardless of winner
SEC - no seed changes regardless of winner
B10 - no seed changes regardless of winner.  A Michigan loss would make things razor-thin between them and Villanova for the 4th 1 seed.  However, I think Michigan would just barely hang on to it in that situation due to their quantity of RPI top 50 wins.

Bracket Projection - 3/16/2014 (early AM)

This is a quick overnight update based on games played through 3/16.  I will evaluate teams a little further in the morning before I come up with a final projection.

Bracket Projections - 2/10/2014

Here's my bracket projections for the games played through the weekend.  As is always the case these projections are largely based on current results, but they also factor in expected results through the rest of the season.

1 Seeds:  ARIZONA, SYRACUSE, VILLANOVA, KANSAS
2 Seeds:  Duke, FLORIDA, WICHITA STATE, Michigan State
3 Seeds:  Creighton, Wisconsin, SAN DIEGO STATE, Iowa State
4 Seeds:  Iowa, MICHIGAN, Kentucky, CINCINNATI
5 Seeds:  Louisville, Virginia, Ohio State, SAINT LOUIS
6 Seeds:  UCLA, Pittsburgh, GONZAGA, Memphis
7 Seeds:  Oklahoma State, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Texas
8 Seeds:  VCU, SMU, Massachusetts, North Carolina
9 Seeds:  Arizona State, Stanford, George Washington, New Mexico
10 Seeds:  Tennessee, Kansas State, SOUTHERN MISS, Colorado
11 Seeds:  Florida State, Xavier, Minnesota, California
12 Seeds:  Oregon, BYU, Harvard, Missouri, TOLEDO, NORTH DAKOTA STATE
13 Seeds:  STEPHEN F AUSTIN, MERCER, GREEN BAY, IONA
14 Seeds:  GEORGIA STATE, DELAWARE, VERMONT, BELMONT
15 Seeds:  UC IRVINE, AMERICAN U, NC CENTRAL, DAVIDSON
16 Seeds:  ROBERT MORRIS, YALE, WEBER STATE, UTAH VALLEY, SOUTHERN, VMI

Last 4 Byes:  Florida State, Xavier, Minnesota, California
Last 4 In:  Oregon, BYU, Harvard, Missouri
First 4 Out:  Providence, LSU, St. Joseph's, Richmond
Next 4 Out:  Louisiana Tech, Georgetown, Dayton, Clemson

The competition at the top of the bracket is really strong this year.  Arizona and Syracuse are as close to locks for a 1 seed as you can have at this point in the season.  I personally think Duke is the 3rd best team in the nation, but their loss to Notre Dame (and to a lesser degree Clemson) keeps them currently off the top line.  San Diego State has a gaudy record, but their SOS is somewhat suspect and there's a good chance they'll lose 1 or 2 games before the end of the year.  Wichita State may end the season undefeated, but their weak SOS also holds them back.  They are definitely in the conversation for a 1 seed, but their lack of top 50 wins compared to the other top teams keeps them on the 2 line for now.  Kansas has the most RPI top 50 wins in the nation (along with Arizona).  Villanova and Florida are both currently 5-2 against RPI top-50, but Villanova has 2 more top-100 wins than Florida which gives them the edge for now.
