LAOJoe's Bracket: FEB 20th, 2011

Finally someone who has Cincy seeded correctly.......If you do a blind resume with Xavier vs Cincy and see 66-46 when they played there is no possible way Xu is seeded higher.  If they both got 7 I would be OK with it,  but some brackets have XU a 5,6,7 and Cincy 10,11 and thats a joke.  Cincy projected SOS end of yr is better then XU,  they have better wins, better losses, and played a better schedule.

And frankly 66-46 shows who is better.....its that simple.......Not too mention XU had a few scares against really bad teams like Wofford and West Mich, and IPFW......and Butler  all 4 could have been losses without strip shirts and a miracle.
