The college basketball season starts in less than 24 hours, and with it comes a lot of uncertainty about who will be crowned the national champions of the game.
The question of who will take home the national championship is a constant thorn in the side of the sport.
But with a few notable exceptions, the most interesting matchups this season have been determined by a single factor: the NCAA Tournament bracket.
In the case of the men’s national basketball championship, that factor was not the actual seedings of the teams, but rather the final standings of the tournament.
This year, the tournament will be played in the most anticipated game of the season: the 2016 Final Four.
The tournament’s format is essentially the same as the tournament of last year, except that there are two new seeds, and the two top seeds will play each other in a rematch of last season’s title game.
As with last year’s Final Four, there will be a final four of five teams, with the first-seeded team advancing to the championship game.
This makes it one of the most competitive tournaments of the college basketball calendar.
In order to play in the NCAA tournament, a team must earn a berth in the tournament by finishing at least one of its four conference tournaments and beating all four of its conference opponents.
Last year, Ohio State finished sixth in the Big Ten Tournament, with its only losses coming to a pair of top-10 teams (Michigan and Purdue).
The Buckeyes, as you might expect, will face a tough opponent, as they will meet the Big 12’s Oklahoma Sooners in the Final Four matchup.
The Sooners were the No. 1 seed, and they have a good chance of winning the tournament, but they will likely have to play a tougher team to qualify.
Iowa will be No. 4 in the final four, and their biggest competition will be Wisconsin, which has the second-ranked seed.
The Badgers will be looking to defend their title against Wisconsin, and will probably have to win two of their three conference games in order to qualify for the Final 4.
The two best teams in the conference are Oklahoma and Wisconsin, so it’s possible that both teams will be eliminated.
That’s not a big shock, as both teams are very good, and both teams have been ranked as highly as the No .1 spot for the past few years.
This is why the Big East has had two teams ranked No. 2 or higher in the preseason polls: because both of those teams have very good records against the Big 8 and Pac-12, as well as the Big 10.
In addition, the Big Eight has a chance to earn its fourth straight Final Four berth, and it will have a much easier time against Ohio State than it did against the Sooners last year.
This means that the conference is one of three divisions to have at least two teams with an 8-1 record against the other two divisions.
Ohio State and the Buckeyes have a lot to play for, so if Ohio State beats the Sooner-dominated Big Ten, it will likely get the automatic bid to the Final 8.
The Buckeye-dominated conference will probably be a much tougher matchup than the Pac-10, where Stanford, Oregon, and Washington will be fighting for a berth.
However, the Pac 8 will have three of its five conference teams, and if they all go undefeated, it could very well be enough to snag the No 6 seed.
However the conference’s seeds are determined, the only teams that will be playing in the title game are the No 3 and No 5 seeds from the Big 11, the No 7 seed from the ACC, and Ohio State’s No. 3 seed from its conference.
For the other five conferences, the two seeds are decided by the No 1 and No 4 seeds from their conferences.
So, for the other six conferences, there are three potential seeds from each conference that will play against each other.
If all three of those seeds were to win their conference games, the teams would have the best chance of getting to the title games.
The No. 5 seed from each of the Big Five conferences, Michigan State, would have a great shot at getting to a No. 6 seed if the Spartans beat the Spartans and Big Ten teams Ohio and Wisconsin beat the Badgers and Pac 8 teams Oklahoma and Purdue.
The same would be true if Ohio and Michigan win their two conference games against the ACC and Pac 10.
The Big Ten would be the clear No. 7 seed, but the Big 13 would be an intriguing match-up for the No 4 seed.

The top four seeds will face off in a matchup to determine which conference is the conference champion.
This will be the first matchup of the 2016 season between two top-five teams in basketball, and as with last season, the winner will face the winner
