Charlie Creme released his first bracketology for the 2018-2019 season.

SEC leads the way with 8 teams which I was not anticipating.

so for all the smart people in the know, as I understand it, its the top 16 teams that get the home court advantage and its based on the polls.....which poll?

and do they really really really rate the teams on their strength of schedule, winning record, etc?....or is it still kind of a popularity contest.....

It's still VERY early but....

Maryland and Syracuse will be in Albany with UConn. $$$$$$ tickets. Geography.

Oregon and Oregon State could be the 1-2 in Portland. Or do they not put conference teams together?

Notre Dame-Mississppi State national title rematch in Elite 8? Could happen.

It's cute that he thinks North Alabama could unseat FGCU in the A-Sun, but it's going to be quite some time before they're actually eligible for the NCAA tournament Embarassed

I'll be surprised if MissSt is not a #1. The SEC is so weak, they should sail right thru.

Same conference teams are never #1 &#2 in the same region...I guess the only exception would be if one conference had five teams who were #1 & #2 Laughing But it would sell a lot of tickets.

There are lots of more knowledgeable bracket folks on here, but someone should answer your questions.

The top 16 is not based on polls. The overall bracket is done by a committee, and their top 16 seeds get to host unless there’s a facility conflict.

They have a bunch of criteria including RPI, strength of schedule, try to avoid early matchups within the same conference, geography, etc.. They meet for four days.

Coaches and journalists have been invited to mock tournament selection training in the past. If you read up on what they’ve learned, it might be helpful to you to understand what the committee does.

This idea always really frosts me: re: Oregon v. ND in Spokane "The problem arose in the Elite Eight when those two teams met. Notre Dame, as the 1 seed, should have had the advantage, but was forced to play a virtual road game against a Ducks team located less than 500 miles away." If 500 miles is such an advantage, would the same be said if for instance UConn as a #1 and Maryland as a #2 were to meet in Columbus OH? After all it's only 400 miles for Maryland. Would anybody in their right mind call that a home game for Maryland? No, I didn't think so. But it shows the bizarre thinking about the West coast.

They're in adjacent states, so they must be close together

If Oregon is a #2 in Portland, then there could be something to complain about. That's less than a 2 hour drive from the campus. Or if OrSU is a #3 there...

Portland will almost certainly have either Oregon or Oregon St as the higher rated team in the Pac 12. Even if they are less than a 1 seed there is nothing wrong. The Portland region will get the worst #1 seed (unless it is a Pac 12 team) by virtue of location. Notre Dame will most likely get to play in Chicago, even if they fall to a #2 seed and UConn likewise will be in Albany. Only Greensboro doesn't have a team that doesn't have a strong tie. The Pac 12 teams usually have longer travel for their tournament games than their opponents and rarely have trips under 300 miles even for conference games. When Cal and Stanford were put together in the West a few years ago they still had to travel over 750 miles to Spokane for their "home" game.

well watching Miss St tonight, I take it back. They're close to as shitty as a bunch of the other SEC teams so will likely get beat sometime...

Any road game not reachable by bus is about equal. 5 Hours on a jet isn't much different from 2 hours. And think of UConn. 2 opponents in Fla, 2 in Texas, one in Louis. Of course they make up for it with the tournament at Mohegan Sun. Very Happy
