All-Time March Madness Bracket

Recommended Posts

Hey Creamers,

 

Now that the NCAA Tourney is over and everyone has a weeks before the NBA Playoffs start, I think it would be fun to explore which school has the best ALL-TIME roster. ESPN.com Page 2 did Something similar 10 years ago, however my seeding is based on how each school has done in the NCAA tourney since its inception.

 

Before unveil the bracket, here is my methodology to create it:

If a team made the tourney, they got 1 point for that year. If a team won the Nat'l Championship, they got 64 points. If they finished in 2nd, they 32 points. Then 16, 8, 4, 2. Play-in game wins didn't count for additional points. I've attached the spreadsheet I used to calculate each school's ranking.

 

Before reviling the 68-team field, here were the last four schools out: Pennsylvania, Colorado, Iowa State & NYU.

 

As I said before this is a 68-team field, so here is the First Four:

 

West Region: Wichita State v. USC

Midwest Region: Missouri v. Western Kentucky

South Region: Xavier v. Florida State

East Region: Providence v. Boston College

 

Here's the West Region:

#1 UCLA v. (Wichita or USC)

#8 California v. #9 Stanford

#5 Arizona v. #12 UTEP

#4 Georgetown v. #13 Bradley

#6 Utah v. #11 Holy Cross

#3 Michigan v. #14 Oregon State

#7 Kansas State v. #10 Oregon

#2 Connecticut v. #15 St. Joseph's

 

Here's the Midwest (who would play the West Region winner in the Final Four):

#1 Duke v. (Mizzou or Western KY)

#8 UNLV v. #9 Notre Dame

#5 Arkansas v. #12 Wyoming

#4 Oklahoma State v. #13 DePaul

#6 Marquette v. #11 West Virginia

#3 Michigan State v. #14 Pittsburgh

#7 Wisconsin v. #10 Purdue

#2 Kansas v. #15 Loyola-Chicago

 

The South Region:

#1 Kentucky v. (Xavier or Florida St)

#8 Memphis v. #9 Texas

#5 Florida v. #12 Butler

#4 Cincinnati v. #13 Georgia Tech

#6 San Francisco v. #11 LSU

#3 Villanova v. #14 Dartmouth

#7 Maryland v. #10 Iowa

#2 Louisville v. #15 Baylor

 

The East Region:

#1 North Carolina v. (Providence or BC)

#8 Houston v. #9 St. John's

#5 NC State v. #12 Virginia

#4 Syracuse v. #13 Wake Forest

#6 Oklahoma v. #11 Temple

#3 Ohio State v. #14 CCNY

#7 Illinois v. #10 LaSalle

#2 Indiana v. #15 Dayton

---------------

In the next few days, I'm put up a poll or something to determine a champion, but I think this is a good starting
