I followed the procedures and hopefully I don't have any rematches.

Some changes happening. None bigger than what happened to Duke. It allows VT to jump the entire First Four while getting into the bracket and it brings BYU up to a #1 seed.

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.

LAOJoe's Bracket: FEB 22nd, 2011

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE BRACKET IN A LARGE CLEAN TABLE


I followed the procedures and hopefully I don't have any rematches. (outside the one mentioned below)
Autobids in ALL-CAPS. Games through Feb 21st.

Brought Boston College back in after some reevaluation. Wasn't too difficult to knock out Southern Miss after what was their 2nd best win go down the drain with UTEP's at-large hopes. There is a potential for a Purdue vs West Virginia rematch but unless seedings are changed it is unavoidable as all other 3 seeds are from the Big East. I try not to swap seeds to often before the final week. I also moved a play-in winner to play Duke instead of Ohio State. This was for 2 reasons. Firstly their is the unlikely scenario of a Texas Southern vs Kansas State rematch. The most important reason the switch was made was because Duke's Regional was too strong and the regions were too unbalanced. This switch caused them to be in acceptable parameters.

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.

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.

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 13th.

A bunch of movement, but outside the very bottom of the bracket it appears to have cleared up a bit. Ohio State is still the #1 overall seed. One possible rematch with Purdue vs West Virginia but they must be paired in the same pod if no seeds are swapped. Kansas State falls out but a win vs Kansas would put them back in. Oklahoma State barely holds on after much deliberation.

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 Southwest Regional would play the winner of the Southeast Regional.
