Interesting twist on the NCCA tournament brackets.  This one is based on the median salary of graduates of the school in the tournament,  not their basketball prowness...From

Schools with higher-paid graduates tend to have a better (i.e. lower) seed. This could relate to the idea that better-paid graduates might donate more to the school and thus provide more funds for sports programs.

Teams in the Southern bracket have the highest median pay ($70,800 vs. $68,100 in the East, $66,900 in the Midwest, and $67,600 in the West). 

Lehigh is the highest-paid seed 16 team — beating all other No. 16 teams by at least $17,000. This enables them to make it to the Top Earning 8 (4th round of the playoffs). All other seed 16 teams are out in the first round.

 Duke is the best-paid seed 1 team by ~$40,000. All other seed 1 teams earn a median pay in the mid-$60,000s, which causes them to leave the salary tournament fairly early.
