How in the hell can you put Gonzaga in as a 3 seed?  Their RPI is nearing 40, their SOS is 102, and aside from beating Tennessee twice (BTW, Tennessee is starting to work themselves onto the bubble), they haven't beating any marquee teams.  Of course they're a tournament team, but there's no way they're any better than a 7 seed.  They were overrated last year, and they're EXTREMELY overrated this year.

It's obvious you don't watch the Big Ten when you have PSU as a higher seed then Wisconsin even though the Badgers have beaten the Lions twice, and have much better computer numbers.

Jason,

   The effort is much appreciated.  Although, I would disagree with some of the
"should be in" teams not being considered locks...namely Syracuse, West Virginia, and Tennessee...those three are locks..especially with the "soft" bubble this year.  Also, I think South Carolina, and Wisconsin really have to moce up to the "should be in" category...thus the at-large pool is relatively small with spots left.  My only BIG issue with your Bracket is a few minor oversights...West Virginia will not play Ohio State in the opening round, they met during the regular season...as well as the sheer unlikelyhood that Marquette would draw Minneapolis, and Gonzaga would draw Portland..those are simply too close to home for those 3 and 4 seeds...committee will pay attention to that.  Otherwise, really good effort (also, Maryland has about as much of a chance of making the tournament as I do playing on the PGA tour)

Looks great Jasonwells82. Very well put together. I do not see anyone I disagree with. What an exciting year for NCAA basketball.
