Seed List (After games of Jan. 6)

I do not believe there is anything wrong with my method of creating a seed list. We have seen that upsets can happen. Therefore it seems foolish to me to project who will win which games. By the same token I have no good reason for creating brackets at this point in the season. Since I expect some movement up and down, it is foolish to create a bracket. I tend to find it fun and challenging, but there isn't a reason to have an actual bracket.

1: Memphis, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA
2: Michigan St., Washington St., Duke, Wisconsin
3: Texas, Tennessee, Marquette, Mississippi
4: Butler, Vanderbilt, Dayton, Texas A&M
5: Clemson, Rhode Island, Indiana, Georgetown
6: Pittsburgh, Ohio St., Xavier, St. Mary's
7: Arizona, Notre Dame, Villanova, Miami (FL)
8: Oklahoma, Boston College, West Virginia, Arizona St.
9: Drake, Nebraska, Massachusetts, Syracuse
10: Baylor, Oregon, Virginia, Stanford
11: Gonzaga, Kansas St., California, Southern Cal.
12: Providence, New Mexico, Stephen F. Austin, Kent St.
13: George Mason, South Alabama, Siena, Winthrop
14: IUPUI, CSU-Northridge, Boise St., Cornell
15: Holy Cross, Davidson, Montana St., ETSU
16: Austin Peay, Hampton, Long Island, UMBC, Alabama St.

Last 4 Out: Arkansas, Minnesota, Florida St., Houston
Conference Breakdown:
8: Pac-10, Big East
7: Big XII
6: ACC
4: A-10, Big 10

I will be doing brackets again starting... January 27th, because that seems about the time that people start doing them.
