Lobofan2003 Bracketology Sat. Night

Posted on: March 11, 2012 1:41 am
 
It is now past midnight here in the Central time zone, so I can say that today is Selection Sunday! It was a great Championship Saturday with many teams locking up bids.

It was really hard to decide the last couple of teams in, I feel like any of the last four teams out could sneak into the Tournament if the Committee has the inclination to put them in. Remember that my bracket tries to replicate what I think the NCAA Committee will do and not necessarily who I think deserves to be in the field.
Auto Bids are in CAPS. The winner of the Midwest Region will play the winner of the West Region; the winner of the East Region will play the winner of the South Region.

*I realize there is a potential rematch between BYU and Baylor in the round of 32, but with BYU's strict guidelines on where they can be placed (Th, Sa site) the rematch was unavoidable.
