Not sure what the committee will define as 'natural region'. If it's relatively loose, the Vols are a higher seed than Michigan, so would stay on the east coast, while Michigan would go out west. They don't always bracket the 1 overall vs 8 overall. Based on seeding, these regions are all very close

Yep

That makes all 4 1 seeds relatively close to home. Moving unc to KC woudnt do that
Just depends on how the committee interprets ‘natural region’. Is Louisville in UNC’s natural region? Not sure. Based on their comments about Kansas in their top 16 reveal it seems like they could put UK in Louisville regardless

All the brackets in the matrix have been updated through yesterdays games. This seed order is more difficult to bracket, so the committee might flex some of their principles should it end up like this.

I really like the brackets that Bracketville is showing this morning. Now they have us as the 2 seed in the south with UNC as the 1 seed. That's much better than the 2 seed in the east with Va as the 1 seed. Looks like a pretty easy path to the elite 8 game.

It’s because he has us seeded over Mich St. where the matrix has mich st over us

Bracketville has Gonzaga unchanged in his seed list. However that doesn’t necessarily mean other teams won’t pass them. I think Duke/UNC likely will as well as UK/UT. Fortunately for the Zags neither of these teams are on opposite sides of their conference tourney brackets so it will make it harder for 3 of the four to pass them. If MSU wins the B1GT then it will be interesting to see. Zags will almost certainly be top 4 in the NET.

I agree they haven’t fallen off the 1 seed line, they opened the door to be passed where as a win would’ve locked it in, but as of now they’re still a 1 seed imo.

Not that I see it happening but I will gladly tak opening losses from both UNC and Duke.
