Surprised there's been no mention yet of the NCAA Tournament Committee's Top 16 reveal yesterday, but if I gotta be the first, then I gotta.

Here 'tis:

The NCAA's top-16 seeds
1. UConn
2. South Carolina
3. Stanford
4. Louisville
5. Texas A&M
6. NC State
7. Maryland
8. Arizona
9. UCLA
10. Baylor
11. Oregon
12. Georgia
13. Tennessee
14. West Virginia
15. Indiana
16. Kentucky

KBA just said in post-game interview, “I’ve been disrespected before.”

My Wolverines got dissed again. Maybe it'll be good motivation for the team. Can somebody explain Georgia at 12, Tennessee at 13? I don't see it.

As much as I agree Michigan has a case, I think there is also a compelling argument that they don't have enough games under their belt. Is there another reveal before the tournament, or is this the only round of this puffery we're going to endure?

There is an additional reveal on March 1.

I just think Michigan has had a lack of games. If they keep on their current trajectory, they will probably be a top-16 seed. Man, they're going to play a lot in a short amount of time to make up some of the games they've missed.

They have two games per week already scheduled*. For the sake of student-athlete safety, I hope they don’t try to squeeze too many in. Hopefully they take care of business in their next two games: at #14 IU and hosting #15 OSU.

*Edit: There’s a buffer in the first week of March in the B1G schedules that would allow a Tuesday/Wednesday game to be squeezed in between Sunday and Thursday/Friday games. Who gets scheduled? That’s the question. I would love to see the postponed Maryland at Michigan game.

Yes, that’s all this is. If UM keeps performing down the stretch , I fully expect them to move up into a decent seed.

The problem with all the top B1G teams is that they haven't proven anything outside their own conference. Most of them haven't even played top teams from other conferences. And when they have, like Indiana, they lost. So how do you actually figure out if they're any good?

In a way, it's a problem for lots of conferences because of the covid related misses...but just seems particularly striking for the B1G.

I agree this is an issue. The B1G and the State of Michigan both slowed things down regarding scheduling early on for U-M and MSU.

I agree, to an extent. It's also true for the PAC-12, I think. Indiana is playing much better now than they were in December. You can maybe say the same for UT but not UK. Maryland beat Arkansas but lost to Missouri State. But again, Maryland had almost an entirely new roster and the pieces are really clicking now.

As a midwestener I'm biased toward the Big Ten, but don't underestimate them too much. We had a solid Elite 8 team in Iowa in 2019.
