Yesterday was about the bubble watch. Four of those five teams played yesterday, and the two teams with the resumes that we thought were best lost. Interesting to note, ESPN's bracketology had these 5 teams in this order at some point before the games yesterday: Florida, Ohio State, Indiana, Creighton, Clemson with the first two of them being in. So here's how the ranking went yesterday.
Looking at bracketologies out there now, Creighton and Indiana are now probably out due to their losses. Ohio State is in now projected to be in as well as Florida. Clemson is probably out right now, too. Interestingly enough though, Florida and Clemson have by the far the best NET rankings out of the five listed here, coming in at #32 and #35 respectively.
So today, let's look at the competition for the top two seeds. From my perspective there is ten teams vying for those eight spots. I took the four resumes most similar to Michigan to compare. (worthy to note: NET ranks are as of yesterday, today's rankings didn't come out until I already had this finished.)
For those who care about the slight change from yesterday to today:
- Quadrant results remain the same.
- Resume A's worst loss is now #59
- Resume B's two best wins are #9 and #9. Their worst loss is now #109
- Resume C's third best win is #20, and their worst loss is #21.
- Resume D's third best win is #16. Their worst loss is now #47
- Resume E's worst loss is #80
So basically, the changes are pretty negligible.
Now let's get some Quad 1 wins this weekend, boys! Go Blue!
