News And Notes...
**** New and Improved for 2017! ****

Welcome to the new Seed Madness. Along with a page facelift, there many new features. The goal of the new site is to give the user the feeling they are in the same room with the committee as they make their selections. Trying to make a computer follow the logic used by the committee has been a challenging one, to say the least, as we apply a set of metrics to the selection process.

The most important change to the site is the use of the QRI. (Quality Rating Index) It's been a part of the site for about 3 years but now it moves to the forefront as the main tool used to seed teams. Go to its page to see exactly how it works.

Check the site frequently to catch all the News And Notes with frequent updates as Selection Sunday nears.
