Interesting note that Missouri was #8 and Baylor was #9, could easily say if Baylor wins the Big 12 Tournament that they are a #2 seed while Missouri drops to a #3... How mad would have Mizzou fans been then?
You realize they dont seed straight off the S curve. its like 60% "s" curve. 35% location. and 5% conference... want to limit interconference matchups until further down the road.
A lot of times that is done after the seeding though, they won't bump you down to a #4 seed from a #3 seed to avoid a match-up in the second round. Rather they simply place you in a region that avoids the conflict, not bump you down. Although it can happen... Just is pretty rare.
