First Four Out:
Who’s moving up?
Ole Miss: The Rebels completed a season sweep of Auburn and that has moved Ole Miss RPI up a good amount this week. They go from a nine seed from over the weekend to a seven seed now. Unless the Rebels have a bad collapse to end the season the should be dancing come march.
Maryland: Maryland lacked any big wins but over the week they took out Purdue by 14 at home. That is enough for me to give Maryland a little more respect on their resume and move them up to a six for the time being.
Kansas State: Funny how no one seems to be talking about the first place in the Big 12 Kansas State Wildcats. A team that was for many a preseason top 10 has found its form of late and will likely be the Big 12 regular season gets in my top 16 as the last four seed. There are still some questions I have about this team but other programs will need to look out for them now that they seem to be rolling.
Who took the biggest hit this week?
Louisville: It was not a big drop off but Louisville now sits at a five seed in my Bracketology. It is not so much that they drop a to a seed lower it was how they did it. After the 23 point collapse against Duke, Louisville will wonder what might have been. That win could possibly have had Louisville in the driver season for a three seed and a chance to push for a two seed during the rest of the regular season, instead they find themselves on the five line.
