<span style="font-size: 7.5pt; color: black; font-family: Verdana;">Wake will not be a 1 seed. They are not in the class of duke and unc. I know they beat the tar heels but it was at home an unc was not the team they were earlier in the year. After crushing Miami and Clemson its clear unc has turned it around. Unc and Duke will be 1 seeds and wake will be a two or three seed. And having the Spartans as a two seed gave me a good laugh. They have been inconsistent and losing to northwestern proves that point. Also FSU and cal will NOT be in the same paring because they played in the regular season but i do think the golden bears are going to be a high seed this year. so its not a bad bracket, but one last thing, Davidson is going to be at least a 9 seed!

Notre Dame is this years Arizona State - nice record but horrible RPI.  They aren't in the top 50...or 60!  Say what you will about the RPI - but the committe uses it - Notre dame could lose their next 6 and then they'd be forced to win the big east tourney.  I have them in my bracket (www.bracketwag.com) for now - but they are sliding.

sdsu has no chance against unlv of beating thaem at the thomas and mack, and they wont even beat unlv at the cox pavillion, i agree utah should be out, but unlv is far more superior then sdsu, and u will see!

Its nice that the mwc is getting some love with three teams in, but utah a better seed then UNLV? lmao! cmon. and a better seed then byu, utah wont make the tourny, i know the rebels had a couple of bad losses like at colorodo st and tcu, but to beat byu in byu, and louiville in louiville with out are best player, that erases those two bad loses! UNLV is by far hands down the best team in the mwc, and i defie anyone to make a better case for that!

Thanks for putting in the time, but there are several mistakes on this.  You would think CBS would actually look at this before posting it on its' home page.  Ohio State is NOT a #5 seed.  They might be the fifth best team in the Big Ten.  Notre Dame is in the #5-7 range right now, and you don't even have them in the tournament.  Unacceptable.  In the past fifteen years, only once (Utah State) has there been a team that was ranked in the top 25 not make the tourney, and even then it was a pretty big deal. 

 

A for effort, but D- for results.

YOU SAY TAKE KENTUCKY OFF THEIR JERSEY AND THEY ARE NOT THAT GOOD?

THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT KENTUCKY IS ON THEIR JERSEY AND WILL ALWAYS BE!!!

A 12 SEED ON AN 18 WIN SEASON I CAN SEE BUT WITH 12 GAMES TO GO IN THE REGULAR SEASON THE HAVE JUST ABOUT PASSED THAT MARK!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU MY FRIEND NEED TO LOOK AND LISTEN TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE BIG BLUE NATION AND KNOW

THAT WE ARE AND WILL NEVER BE AGAIN A 12 SEED AS LONG AS CBC IS HEADING THE SHIP!!!!!!

GO BIG BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this dude cant be serious.  i really dont believe hes that stupid to put ucla as a 9 seed while cal and asu got a 4 and 5 seed.  dont react to what you just saw which was a once in a lifetime type meltdown from ucla and gave asu a win.  ucla will win the pac 10 regular season title and possibly the pac 10 tourney title.  depending on how the pac 10 tourney shakes out they will get a 3 or 4 seed and possibly a 2 seed depending on how other things fall into place around the country.  embarassing post bro.  step your game up.

Good job, tough to do one this early.....I am a Hoya fan and a 3 seed maybe generous....they may end up middle of the pack in the Big East, even though they have had the toughest schedule so far..

One more thing, I am from the Bignhamton NY area, well live in NH now, but I see Binghamton winning the America East.....heck...they arent doing so bad in the conference at 4-2....something I thought I would throw out there....but good job...
