LAOJoe's Bracket: FEB 15th, 2011

Posted on: February 15, 2011 4:09 am
 
I followed the procedures and hopefully I don't have any rematches. (outside the one I mention below)
Autobids in ALL-CAPS. Games through Feb 14th.

Kansas and Texas swap regions on the top line. Kansas State gets in the field as a 10 seed. West Virginia and Texas A&M swap seeds. Other teams have also been moved around due to fine-tuning and the entry of Kansas State into the bracket. Oklahoma State is now out.

So discuss the bracket, the seeds and possible matchups.

The winner of the East Regional would play the winner of the West Regional.
The winner of the Southeast Regional would play the winner of the Southwest Regional.
