    I knocked out Seeds 1-5. Someone take seeds 6-10, someone else 11-16... Mine are unquestionably the best 1-5 seeds. I didn't worry about travel or region. I S curved it. #1 overal seed vs worst 2 seed vs best 3 vs worst 4 ect...

    Midwest #1 seed 2008 Kansas, #2 seed 2002 Maryland, #3 seed 2005 UNC, #4 Seed 2006 Florida, #5 2013 Louisville.

    East #1 Seed (number 2 overall seed) 2009 UNC, #2 seed 02 Kansas, #3 seed 2004 Uconn, #4 Seed 2008 Memphis, #5 Seed 2000 MSU

    South #1 Seed (3rd overall seed) 2007 Florida, #2 Seed 2001 Duke, #3 Seed 2015 Kentucky, #4 Seed 2003 Syracuse, #5 Seed 2010 Kansas

    West #1 Seed (4th overall seed) 2018 Villanova, #2 Seed 2012 Kentucky, #3 Seed 2003 Kansas, #4 Seed 2005 Illinois, #5 Seed 2017 UNC

    You seemed to have omitted a big one in your 1-5 seeds. 2015 Kentucky?

    LOL you really don’t think a 35-3 UVA team that won it all is a top 5 seed?

    Instead of seeding them just list teams out and we can help you rank them.

    You have some pretty big omissions while you overrate some others.

    2001 Arizona would be one of the next teams up as well imo.

    Gilbert Arenas, Richard Jefferson. A lot of people think they outplayed duke in that final.

    2011 Ohio State would be my next non title winner submission. 2 loss regular season. They were dominant. The core of the Kentucky team they lost to won the ship the next season and went to back to back final fours.

    2000 MSU won the championship game by like double digits and the game wasn’t close. That team was really good. Breezed through the tourney besides 1 close game.

    They were good but they were also a 7 loss team. I’m not sure if they are worthy of a top 4-5 seed.

    If you buy into Kenpom, 09 UNC wasn't anything special relative to other top teams of the era. Down year.

    True, but they also had a much better tournament than teams ahead of them. There was no debate who the best team was in March.

    08 Kansas the #1 overall seed? Lulz

    That was a terrible year of college basketball. If Kenyon Martin doesn't get hurt UC walks to the title and two college coaches resumes look awfully different.

    2008 KU is easily in the top 3 teams of this era. It’s debatable where you want to put them in there but they would absolutely be a 1 seed. I think 2015 Kentucky was better but that’s it for a sure thing.

    To be fair, mateen cleaves missed quite a few games early in the season. Including losses to Wright State and Kentucky. I think there were 1 or 2 more losses while he was out.

    LOL @ the 2nd highest rated team in the Kenpom era? That won the only final four with all four ones?

    I think tournament results should matter. You guys barely escaped Davidson. Memphis pissed down their legs and lost that game as much as KU won it. Not to mention that awful final possession where Chalmers hit that shot. That being said them being #1 isn't egregious. It was a very good year of college basketball.
    I think the top 4 teams are 2012 UK, 09 UNC, 08 KU and 18 Villanova.


    Kenpom is terrible. Especially comparing teams from different years.

    Should have replaced with 2015 UW. For obvious reasons.

    Hmm. MSUs starting guard trio of Cleaves, Bell and MoPete is one of the best trios I have seen in modern college hoops. That team was just downright tough as nails. They aren't an all time great team or something like that, but they can hold their own.

    KenPom is actually the best thing we have. Kentucky fans just think it’s worse than it really is because they’re typically underrated. That’s not KenPom’s fault, that’s the SEC’s fault.

    Steph Curry was really good. They were also a 10 seed.

    This the 2013 team, right? Yeah I definitely think they deserve to be in it.

    True. Midmajors are never, ever better than their seed.

    They were just lucky to beat three ranked teams, including #8 Georgetown and a blowout of #6 Wisky.

    And 2012 Kentucky mowed through murderer's row.
