    My preseason #1 seeds were MSU, UK, UF and Nova, and they have a combined 5 losses already.

    At this point I think I'll go with Louisville, Duke, Michigan State and UNC, but I definitely don't feel good about it.

    All in all, this appears to be a weak year at the top. The incoming freshman class isn't as good and it's more spread out. This is a perfect year for an experienced but talented team to take home the title.

    A couple sleeper IMO: Seton Hall, Ohio State, Utah State and Xavier.

    Seton Hall v Oregon game should be revealing about both teams.

    Almost same exact sentiments. I also had preseason three of your 4, excluding Nova.

    I also predicted that the ACC would get no #1 seeds. Now it looks like they may get 2 or 3!

    Of course, I never sent that post...

    I think the winner of the Pac has a shot to be a #1 seed this year. If they can keep it up.

    Oregon will do well, but I see their cap at around 28-5. Not sure if that is good enough for a #1 seed.

    I feel like that’d get you a solid three seed, maybe a two pending on who the losses were against.

    The #1 seeds will be awarded based on the OOC games that are going on now.

    It doesn't matter how much you beat yourselves up in conference, generally, if the OOC is really strong.

    PAC has done well so far. B12 always does well.

    BE mediocre, B1G has taken on a lot of losses but they also have some quality wins.

    Right now?

    Michigan State
    UNC
    Gonzaga
    Duke

    The ACC is LOADED and those teams now have 20 in conference games which means they will beat up on each other and so one may have a chance at a #1 seed while a team such is Gonzaga may not lose a game in conference.
