Bracketology Trip: NCAA Mock Selection Committee: Part Four

February 18th, 2012
ncaa.pngNow that I'm back from the NCAA's Mock Selection Committee, I finally have time to sit down and answer some of the many questions asked by readers and followers on twitter. Sitting in with the likes of Committee chairman Jeff Hathaway and NCAA Senior VP Greg Shaheen (the person who understands the selection process best), I certainly know more about the process than ever before.

 

Bracketology Trip: The NCAA Mock Selection Bracket

There is still much to talk about after the whirlwind NCAA Mock Selection Committee. After Thursday night's session, I wrote about the major flaws in the selection process. These include an over-reliance on the "eye-test", a delusion that the RPI is not the most important ranking, yet it is the basis of the entire interface, and a general ambiguity about what it really means to select the "best" teams.

Bracketology Trip: NCAA Mock Selection Committee: Part Two

I've been to Indianapolis almost a dozen times, and each time it perplexes me. Outside of the government employees working downtown during the day, the rest of downtown is one giant convention/conference center. Except it is not contained to the actual convention center, but spread out across 8 blocks.

In town for the NCAA's Mock Selection Committee, I guess I am no different from the other conference-goers filling up chain restaurants (I've counted about 120 so far) and crowding my chain-hotel elevator (the Parts Unlimited crew is pretty rowdy).
