This will be one of the most anticipated Selection Sunday shows in recent Notre Dame history. "Beating elite competition, regardless of where the game is played, will always be important to the committee, but these new quadrants redefine its definition of a quality win".
Turner will handle things differently.

Basically, it's a sorting tool.
Or will the committee consider that Louisville is 0-11 against the RPI's Top 50 teams? Instead of grouping results simply by how opponents stand in the Rating Percentage Index, the NCAA is emphasizing results in road and neutral-site games. Quadrant 3 and Quadrant 4 games continue along this trend. The four lowest seeds will also face off in the other First Four games. But still, UM has six quadrant 1 victories. The 10-member committee met in NY and began combing through the tools at its disposal.

Rinse and repeat until all 68 teams are seeded.
The committee chair will get down to the final teams and ask members to rank their top four, much like the ESPN panel did on College GameDay Saturday morning.
"The advantage is your fans get an opportunity to come see you play", Self said. There are, however, several geographical exceptions. It also features arguably the nation's most electric player in Trae Young, who led Oklahoma in as a No. 10 seed despite going 2-8 down the stretch. With the show moving off network television for the first time in over three decades, executives can expect more of the same this year.
