Brad-ketology: 2022 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 have earned automatic bids to this year’s NCAA tournament by virtue of winning their respective conference tournament. Feel free to comment or debate. My biggest surprises are both Rutgers and Notre Dame being left out of the Big Dance!
