Simple - it hurts Syracuse less to have lost to an OS bubble team early in the season than the recent loss to a crummy Michigam team hurts OS.  Think of it this way, if Syracuse isn't considered a tournament caliber team, then OS really doesn't deserve a bid because their resume would be blank in the key wins section and would still include 11 losses.

I think it looks pretty good but u can put duke a number one seed and take north carolina out. Duke is on fire at three point land.

Also texas will be the top seed in the number one when it comes to selection sunday.

I think that is a pretty generous seed, considering their record and the fact that they lost to BYU (which has a better record and a lower seed).  Also consider that they and Conneticut have the worst records of any team seeded five and higher.  Unless there are some major shake-ups in conference tournaments, Louisville will be lucky to get that high of a seed.

I agree it is snazzy and all the aforementioned errors were corrected when I first saw the bracket ,so not a problem. I  am amazed at all the time and energy and thought you have put in this effort and that there are not more errors with logos etc. I have trouble with just a short post.

I am assuming there can be many changes after the conference's championship games. In the SEC, anything is possible for example even with it being a "rebuilding" year at  Florida and slow start at Kentucky however good to see Vanderbilt moving up in seeds and how they teams could be seeded at this point.

Again looking snazzy with the Bracket Dan.  You must've been really tired when you posted this... you have Dayton in both of your last two lines.  That's a me kind of mistake.
