THOUGHTS:

-After a crazy Saturday, the one seeds are all the same.  None have more than three losses and all have multiple elite wins.

-Kansas State and TCU couldn’t fit into 8-9 games because Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Kansas, and Baylor were already in the pods. They are true nines in ten positions. Seton Hall and Clemson bumped up as a result.

-First four out: Georgetown, Syracuse, Marquette, and Rhode Island
