Georgetown #2 in Midwest. Surprising, but not everyone can be a #1 seed. And they are playing UMBC, first ever NCAA appearance.

I feel badly about saying that I'd ride Louisville to the Final Four, because they're a #3 seed.

#4 for Wazzu? Ugh. Let's hope that we even make it to a game with North Carolina.

1 seeds are UNC (E) Memphis (S) UCLA (W) Kansas (M)

Suicide Watch for willmorris starting now.

BTW, the Mason '08 tour begins against Notre Dame. Better Thursday or Friday than tomorrow.

Nah...he invested more of his time hacking the committee's seeding computer to pit mid-majors against each other in the 1st Round....and underseeded the really good ones.

South: Oregon a 9? Money changed hands between the Pac 10 and the committee

Temple's a 12....UMass ain't in.

Pitt (4) will not be in the Sweet 16 (again)

Saint Mary's a 10? Wow...

Kentucky an 11?! Illinois State better be in or I call shenanigans....

Call it anyway...I bet Illinois State's bubble just popped with UK getting in.

Also means Connecticut has been shipped out west. Probably a 5 seed, if I were a betting man.

I suspect that Illinois State got hosed. (I have them at an RPI of 33)

Wow. SEC Champs. They'll probably get a 10 seed or so.

Awesome!

They got a 14. Though I think Illinois State, Dayton, and UMass(but that's bias)should have gotten in.

Villanova, UK, and Ka State should be out. When do we hear the NIT?

Oh, and everyone should go register(free!) at NCAA.com Madness on Demand for a VIP account so you can see all the games online live.

Wow,CBS Sportsline's bracket has gotten uglier and uglier every year. But that is the bracket. I will make my own for everyone that has all the info on it.

West: 9 seed for A&M seems high.

Drake gets a 5 at least....ANNND plays a Midmajor (Western Kentucky)

Arizona gets a 10...

Xavier with the 3 (!) playing 14 seeded Georgia (Can't force the majors to face the hot team... <_< )

And Baylor gets in even though they lose in the 1st round of the Conference tournament.

----------------------------------------------------

OK...open letter to the committee...does the tournament "count" or doesn't it? Because what I see here is a couple of bubble teams getting in with opening round losses (which is to be expected with what happened on Thursday) but this is at the expense of a team or two that did make a run.

In ISU's defense...they GOT to the Conference Tournament Finals...which cannot be said for a Kentucky team that lost in its first tournament game to the LAST PLACE TEAM IN ITS DIVISION!!! They lost to Gardner-Webb....AT HOME!!! All they have is 12-4 in the SEC, which IMO is equaled by ISU's solid second place in the #8 RPI Conference in the country. But hey, Kentucky brings TV ratings, so let them in. As well as Michael Beasley State...

9 PM tonight. Will agree that Nova didn't deserve in though.

Illinois State lost its conference title game by 30 points. That couldn't have helped their resume.

So, the Big Five got three teams -- Temple, St. Joe's and Villanova. It's ashame that they'll all be out in the first round.

And I hate to tell you, Pasquale, but the Patriots will get knocked out in the first round.

That's what they said last time!

To a National 5 seed. An underseeded 5 seed.

ASU got screwed royal-style! I hope the UA "Mild"cats enjoy the early X-Mas present the NCAA gift-wrapped for them.

We're taking the NIT!

Annnd Bob Knight is the first guy this year to suggest a 128 team tournament this season. :wacko:

2 Final thoughts....Arizona State probably should have been ahead of Arizona by virtue of the season sweep (and better Conference standings)

I don't like the trend of the last two years of the committee pitting the good mid-major teams against each other in the 1st Round. The only way the midmajors can prove themselves is by playing the big boys, therefore it logically follows that they should have more opportunities to do so.

I would take Arizona over ASU in a heartbeat. And if BC makes the NIT, better watch your back. :D

And he's also saying that the automatic bid needs to go away. Knight remains a wacko, and needs to drink a piping hot cup of STFU.

You know, why don't the BCS conferences just break away from NCAA and have their little money party? That's what Knight and Jay Bilas seem to want.
