    Default Bracketology 3/6

    8/9 seed in our region: SMU/OK. St

    4/5: St. Louis/Michigan St.

    Duke as the 2 seed.

    Not the easiest bracket of all time, but I wouldn't hate it. We would frustrate the hell out of smart and force him into a ton of bad shots. I know all season people have been saying how great Michigan state will be once they get healthy, but we're still waiting for them to figure it out. They are physical down low and crash the boards with House of Payne and Dawson's Creek, which as we saw last night could be problematic. I'd probably rather have them in our bracket than any of the other current four seeds

    while OK St is a tough draw I would much rather play them than Memphis or Gonzaga. To me I think we have toughest 2-6 out of any bracket. Iowa St is really good but they seemed to have peaked at the wrong time.

    Rather shocking that SDSU is a 5 seed though.

    Not a great draw in my opinion. Ok St. and Mich St. have both underperformed relative to their talent level up to this point, but both are very capable of making a deep run. I think we could and should beat both, but in my opinion some of those other 8/9 4/5 matchups are more appealing. Although if SLU came out of that potential 4/5 matchup, I would be thrilled.

    That bracket looks much more challenging imo than the one posted a few days ago, ok st, mich st, duke, not saying we couldn't do it, buts that's a tough stretch for any team.

    That ones even tougher IMO. New mexico is a more complete team than OK St, and duke as a 5??? Seems like a bit of a knee jerk reaction to their loss last night. They still have top 10 SOS/RPI and a 9-5 record against the top 100. I don't think that loss knocks them lower than the 3 seed line at this point

    Bring it on.

    Arizona will be a #1 seed for a reason.

    No need to get worried about who we might play at the moment. Wait until next weekend when the real brackets come out. There are lots of teams that have underperformed late in the season and will be 4/5 seeds which would have been unthinkable as recently as a few weeks ago. The only easy game will be the first 1/16 game and hopefully the second game 1/8 or 1/9 game. After that every game will be hard.

    Agreed, the brackets will look nothing like this, but it's still fun to speculate on imaginary potential matchups

    Cal took it hard losing last night to Utah.
    Utah is moving up but would need to beat Stanford and do really well in 5he PAC tourney to get a sniff.

    I think this one looks much easier. Could moonwalk our way to the Final Four.
    It's not peer pressure it's just your turn.
