They played poorly in a Sweet 16 game. After watching the rest of the tournament play out, tOSU was the best team. They just played a bad game at the wrong time.

#1 of course...because I'm a homer.

Long live the southend.

Rationalizing it - voting for my perceived best team over a tournament winner

Butler shouldn't be #2 just because they were the runner-up in the championship game.  They played so poorly in that game and did not have a great regular season, so they should not be #2, in my opinion.  I'm fine with Connecticut being #1, but after that, I would probably put Kentucky, OSU, and Kansas.  Kentucky beat us (despite it being an uncharacteristically bad performance), so I'd give them #2.  Kansas beat no one in the tournament and didn't even play a close game against VCU, so their Elite 8 run doesn't bump them over OSU since OSU was ahead in the last regular season poll.

Why yes, let's decide the #1 team s based on a vague blend of perceived strength, regular season body of work, and completely arbitrary speculation! What could go wrong?! 

 

Haven't we tried this before
