How The Major Conferences Are Doing Versus Expectations In The NCAA Tournament

How is your bracket looking? I filled out two brackets in a work pool along with 564 other brackets. One is in 90th place, the other is somewhere north of 450.

The NCAA Tournament is the best time to compare the majors conferences versus one another as every team from the top 8 conferences is good and every team is in survive and advance mode.

Below is each conference's record and how they are doing versus their seed. A win over a lower seed yields 0 points as this is expected while a win over a higher seed yields 1 points for an upset.8 vs 9 games are awarded a 1/2 point for a win and 1/2 point for a loss since these games are generally toss ups
