What if the Sweet 16 was reseeded? Brendan Prunty of The Star-Ledger gives new seeds for the 16 teams remaining in the NCAA Tournament. He gives Florida the top seed, and calls them an absolute lock for the Final Four:

Seriously, did any team benefit more from the first weekend than the Gators? No team at this point in the tournament is a pushover, but Florida’s biggest test may be a good (but flawed) UCLA team that surrenders 70.1 points per game. After that, either a No. 10 or 11 seed standing in the way of the Final Four. And really only Michigan State would prove a threat to get to the title game. If Florida doesn’t make the Final Four, something went horribly wrong.
