My look at the seeds for the men’s bracket

There are a few interesting quirks. One I see is that there is a rule saying teams with direct wins over a teamdirectly in front of them can jump them. At 16, you have UNC, who lost to 17 Auburn… but Auburn also happened to lose to 18 Tennessee… so what happens? Also, the Big 12 only has one team in the top-16. Will a team like Texas, who got hosed last year, get to host as a 2-seed?

I will plop these all into my mapping software and show you where the seeds are located in my next post.
