Sounds pretty good. I appreciated reading your predictos :thumbs:

Yes, nice job PP!

Thanks guys.  I enjoy doing it.  I was able to get 36 of the 46 teams within 0-2 spots of their "overall seed" so I felt like I did somewhat good. But Creighton, St Bony and WV I missed the boat I guess.

At least KState got in the 8 vs 9 game like many thought ( just wish Xavier was our 1 seed)

PP I think the only difference in Xavier or UVA is we'd lose by 8-10 against Xavier and 15-20 against UVA

USC's coach was pissed. What no doubtly  doomed them was N Mexico St was the only tourney team they beat.  Sometimes you just can't simply look at a resume in "numbers format"

23-11, 14-7 in all vs P12
34 RPI
39 SOS
4-6 vs Q1
5-4 vs Q2
14-1 vs Q3-Q4

They won vs Middle Tennessee, Vandy and a bunch of middle of the pack Pac-12 teams.  0-5 vs Arizona, Ucla, Asu (also lost to OU and Texas AM).

It won't be easy to beat either, but never know.  Louisville and Notre Dame, 2 teams not in the Tourney... 1 had Virginia beat and had a meltdown late, the other was down 2 with under a minute (both in last 11 days). 

Xavier last 6 games included getting drilled at home by Nova, a narrow 3 pt win at 195 RPI DePaul and a loss to Providence in B.E. Tourney

Not that anyone cares about the NIT but if they seed the way they normally do, bubble darling Oklahoma State, may not even get a home game with their atrocious RPI.

Oh man, I talked to a friend that is a Nebraska fan and he was ticked about their 5 seed (and no home game) in the NIT.

I don't do the whole field like PP, but I missed on USC and St. Mary's plus I didn't have Syracuse in the field.

I guess we have to take the NCAA at their word when they say they don't orchestrate match-ups.

Although the KSU/Foster game is juicy, the committee could have easily put Mizzou in the same bracket as KU and also had A&M and UT play in the first round.

I think Mizzou was pretty destined for the 4th #1 seed with Porter returning.

South Carolina appears to have not made the field this year. How sad.

The only thing I've got is that WSU's head coach's name is Marshall.  What am I missing? :dunno:

Omg.  That's why I shouldn't post when I only slept 4 hours last night.  Greg coached at Winthrop before coaching at Wsu.  Yep, I'm stupid this morning

Listened to ESPN radio a bit the other day and they said 97% of the money was on KSU, by far the biggest edge in the tournament.

I may have been unclear but it was 97% of the money in the KSU/Creighton matchup.  Still seemed crazy tho.
