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
5 Seeds:  WICHITA STATE, Michigan, GONZAGA, SAN DIEGO STATE
6 Seeds:  Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Oklahoma, Iowa State
7 Seeds:  UCLA, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas
8 Seeds:  Memphis, Kansas State, SMU, Utah
9 Seeds:  Minnesota, Baylor, BYU, Indiana
10 Seeds:  Illinois, Colorado, Stanford, Cincinnati
11 Seeds:  Florida State, HARVARD, Dayton, New Mexico
