Feel like the identity of the 1 line is pretty well set. Things are sure to change though. Teams on the 2 line are going to pick up signature wins, due to the way the teams on the 1 line are clustered. Whoever inevitably wins the Big East, ACC, and B1G are going to come for the 1 line.
The 4 line is kind of a transition line for me. Feel good about the top 12-15 separating from the pack. But once you get to the 5-8 lines, you could almost put these teams in any order and I wouldn't complain.
I haven't fully scrubbed this so I'm sure there's probably a couple spots where I've deviated from the data.
You can tell where I threw my hands up and just threw a bunch of B1G teams into the field. They have 10 in, and I really didn't want to do 12....but who else would've gone in?
