Seed Madness is a comprehensive computerized compilation of information used to predict the 68 teams and their seedings for the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Using game results for a particular year, Seed Madness creates 3 tables of information. 1) The Bubble Watch - a list of teams competing for those precious few remaining spots available for selection. 2) The Top 68 - a list of the expected 68 teams and their ranking. 3) The Seedings - the predicted seedings and regions each team is expected to receive from the committee. *** LIVE UPDATES ***

* Please note that the seedings above may vary slightly from the official seedings due to an attempt to follow the NCAA's Principles and Procedures concerning conference balance while filling out regions. The actual predicted seed of each team is listed in the Top 68 rankings on the left.
Distance to the Regionals

We are tracking the top seeds and the distance they are from the regional sites. We will take the number 1 team in the nation and put them in the closest site to their campus and proceed to do the same for 2 - 16. Here is how it all looks as of today.
