Cubbage32 final bracketology 3/17

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
first six out: Middle Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, Maryland, Baylor, Iowa.

Cubbage32 Bracketology 1/21

Hello again everyone! I waited a little longer this year to get started with this, so this is my first bracketology thread of the season.  This bracket also takes into account tonight's Georgetown victory over Notre Dame.

Couple of explanations... I do not have Virginia in my bracket right now because they have too many bad losses.  I didn't just look at their RPI (120s) and throw them out, but even though they have wins at Wisconsin and against North Carolina and FSU, the losses are terrible and too much to overcome at this point. 

I chose Rutgers as my last team in over Alabama and BYU for two reasons; 1. They have solid computer numbers right now (RPI and SOS in the low 40s), and 2. they only have one bad loss and it was the first game of the season. That and some decent top 100 wins compared to no good wins for BYU and a few BAD losses for Alabama and I gave the nod to Rutgers for the time being.

Obviously, at this point it's like throwing darts, there just is not a lot of seperation with the final few at-large teams, so let's hope teams begin to separate themselves over the next 6 weeks.

As always, I do the bracket the way I feel it would look like if the tournament started TODAY, not how I think it will look in March.  Automatic bids are in all CAPS


1's Duke, SYRACUSE, Michigan, KANSAS

2's FLORIDA, Arizona, Indiana, MICHIGAN STATE

3's GONZAGA, Minnesota, Kansas State NEW MEXICO
