WTF point #1: 1 line, #4 overall
I'll cede to the committee and put Auburn over Kansas. I'm not convinced that'll hold through March, but I'll give it to them for now.
WTF point #2: 4 line, #16 overall
It doesn't feel right having one of those Big 12 teams there, and there's just no good candidates to work with. So we'll give Gonzaga a bone here.
WTF point #3: 5 line, #20 overall
I stared at this one forever. I have no idea. There's literally no one who deserves that spot. No one. When in doubt, go with the committee overseeding a team whose conference has manipulated the RPI numbers the best.
WTF point #4: 6 line, #24 overall
Ok I'll admit, two big jumps for SEC teams here. Same reasoning as before - as teams fall apart above them, I'm going to err on the side of the committee throwing a bone to the conference with strong SoS numbers. It also helps that the Big East's next best teams are showing some pretty significant flaws at the moment.
