March madness has arrived! Conference tournaments are either recently completed or in full swing. Selection Monday is around the corner.
That also means it is time for the fourth annual Dishin & Swishin bracketology podcast, with ESPN’s women’s basketball bracket expert Charlie Creme. This year, with his social media presence on full blast and ESPN’s family of television and Internet broadcasts covering so many games, Creme is easy to find.
What you cannot get out of him, however, is more than a two minute halftime blurb or an 140-character tweet!
Well, that is what Dishin & Swishin does each year; we bring Charlie Creme on to expound on his brackets, the processes he undertakes, what goes into trying to predict the NCAA tournament each year, and more. It is always enjoyable and educational, with some great information disseminated and points of interest debated.
On today’s podcast some of the topics covered include:
- The bubble teams, who is in who is out, and why, including what did Iowa do to move back in?
- Seedings, locations and the S-curve impacting where teams may be sent
- Why must local teams be moved out of certain regions?
- Why teams like Tennessee are seeded as high as they are, why teams like Mississippi State are not seeded higher?
- The significance of in conference won-loss records and should teams below .500 be in the tournament?
If figuring out how the NCAA selection committee does their job is your bag, then this podcast is for you. Enjoy, and hopefully all your favorite teams get bids and seeds you like!
