Brad-ketology: 2020 Final Seed List

I will send out final brackets in a few minutes, but here is the final seed list for both my NCAA and NIT Bracket Projections.  The teams below are displayed below on an S-curve, so they are ranked from left to right within each seeding line.  Teams in bold would have earned automatic bids to this year’s NCAA or NIT tournament by virtue of either winning their respective conference tournaments (NCAA auto bids) or conference regular season (NIT auto bids).  Teams italicized are those who would have earned those bids as a result of being their regular season conference champ in situations where conference tournaments were not completed because of the Corona.  Feel free to comment or debate.
