Cubbage32 final bracketology 3/17

Posted on: March 17, 2013 4:29 pm
Here is my final bracket... Ole Miss just won, so I moved La Salle into my last four in.  My final selections came down to St. Mary's, Tennessee, and Mid Tennessee, and MTSU's resume just was not good enough to put them in over Tennessee.  Yes, Ole Miss winning today give's MTSU a top 50 win, but that's all they have, and that isn't enough IMO. 

Another thing I'll be interested to see when it comes to seedings in regions is if they put Louisville or Indiana in the midwest, because if Louisville gets it, then I think Wisconsin plays in the midwest as a 5-seed (rooting interest) otherwise the Badgers will probably get sent down south.  I think Louisville gets it, but I wouldn't be shocked if they let Indiana stay close to home.

Anyways, I think the four 1-seeds are set, although people are making a push for Miami to now be a 1-seed, I kept them as the top 2 seed and left Gonzaga as a 1.

Midwest                        South         West                  East
1 Louisville                1 Kansas        1 Gonzaga           1 Indiana
2 Duke                     2 Miami          2 New Mexico     2 Georgetown
3 Michigan State         3 Florida        3 Ohio State        3 Michigan
4 Arizona                  4 Marquette     4 Oklahoma State  4 Kansas St.
5 Wisconsin               5 St. Louis      5 Syracuse            5 Pittsburgh

Last four in: La Salle, Boise State, St. Mary's, Tennessee
