In this Selection Sunday Special Aaron Torres breaks down the 2018 NCAA Tournament bracket and explains why Sunday was a disastrous day for the committee and really, everyone who loves college basketball. He discusses the following:
— The brutal Selection Show. What was TBS thinking? Why did they have to make changes? And the truly terrible decision to list teams in alphabetical order.
— Aaron’s biggest gripes with the seeding process. How did Oklahoma get into the tournament? How did Arizona and Kentucky get matched up against each other? And why do we constantly reward teams like Oklahoma who peaked early, but not teams like Arizona and Kentucky who peak late?
— And finally, Aaron shares some early thoughts on the tournament bracket itself. He explains why he thinks the winner of Kentucky-Arizona is in great shape and why the West might be the most open region of all.
