J dub,  What's up with the Cats?  Are they trying to play their way back onto the bubble again?  A week ago I was singing their praises and now they are stinking it up again.  They have no consistency.

I like it, but why do you ship Xavier out to Boise? Why not Dayton?

 

because I have Louisville and Pittsburgh in Dayton.

Saint Mary's headed down hill because of their best player gone for a month RPI is like 50 and the reason Wisconsin is up that high on the last 4 out is due to their RPI and SOS is high.Well, I see your based on how you see it playing out, okay I can see why now you think St. Mary's won't make it(I still think they will). You spelled Bracketology wrong, just a heads up.

I disagree here JDub. Saint Mary's is a definate tourney team right now, and my Badgers aren't that close to making the tourney. Now if we beat Illinois on Thursday then maybe we do, but until then I'm thinking your giving us too much credit. Yes, I realize we've played a good SOS, but we haven't beaten a top 25 team all year all though Michigan and VT are decent wins.Saint Mary's headed down hill because of their best player gone for a month RPI is like 50 and the reason Wisconsin is up that high on the last 4 out is due to their RPI and SOS is high.

Good job JDubs, really looks good.

I differ with you on some seeds, but we have the same teams in the tournament so I can't really argue with you.
