Bracketology Seed List For Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Today’s list is largely unchanged from Monday’s, though Florida State jumped back into the top 16 following a rather unimpressive win over Notre Dame and K-State dropped out after falling at Kansas.

Today’s full bracket post

Notes:

  • Auto bid holders in this section are noted by the conference names in parentheses.
  • Arrows indicate movement up or down the seed list (down to the spot on the seed list).
  • New entrants are marked with an asterisk.
  • For at-large candidates only, the numbers in parentheses after the team’s name are as follows: record vs. D1 opposition/record in Group 1 and Group 2 games/record in Group 1 games only. This information reflects NET data as of Monday, Feb. 25. I pulled the quality win info from WarrenNolan.com’s selection sheets.
