    Updated bracketology 2/24

    Did anyone already post the link to Lunardi's Friday's update? If so, merge, and I apologize.

    I've read some many bracket threads the past few days, I can't recall.

    2/24 Bracketology

    Hanging steady. If we're looking at 8/9 slot, I feel good about our chances in first and second round in that scenario.

    I'm not going to bet money vs. MSU but think of the Cyclones fanbase revenge possibilities.

    In fact, I like the region in its entirety. The possibility of getting to Sweet 16 in St. Louis with a big first weekend. Solid but inconsistent teams (Florida State, Vandy).

    And we've already beaten KU 1.5 times.

    similar to my projections...I have us as a 9 seed against St. Louis..and us playing Mich St. if we win.

    Note: My S-Curve is not accurate as in I moved teams around so they would avoid conference teams.

    My system didn't interpret the Excel file (ugh!). I would like to see your bracket, somehow.

    yep no problem...out of the bubble teams...18 of them can make the dance...there are 50 teams there...some are obvious cuts like Wagner and Loyola (MD)...Iowa State was one of the top bubble teams on there besides Virginia and St. Louis and Kansas St.

    Looks pretty good.

    Impressive work.

    I'm OK at getting the field (last few in and out are always a quandary) -- but I'm only semi-competent at seeding I tend to do OK with 1-3 and 14-16.

    I have UConn seeded higher than Seton Hall. I have ORU on 11 line; Murray State closer to 7

    Your play-ins are 12 UT vs. Miami and 13 USF vs. Xavier

    My most recent are both at 12 -- Washington/Mississippi State and Xavier/N.C. State

    (Mine isn't complete enough to post, otherwise I would -- I'll get there in a few days, I hope )

    thanks, I've been working at nights 2 hours a week updating it..once I got the main setup right then it's easy updating it.

    Seton Hall and UCONN are pretty close...most people would agree with you...however Seton Hall has played better down the stretch then UCONN. Though I understand why that looks weird. Oral Roberts at 11 is a bit high..they are 25-5 with a 44 RPI, but they have a really high SOS and they have no top 50 wins..

    Murray St. at 7 is good, they do have some nice non-conf wins so that's why I put them as a 6 seed.

    Washington and Mississppi St. were the 2 teams that barely avoided having to play in the play-in game. Main reason NC St. is out for me is that they are 1-8 vs top 50 teams..they were the last team out on mine.

    Do you have Texas out of the field on yours?

    As long as people keep projecting that the big 12 gets 6 teams we are a lock. Winning one more game would make me feel a lot better about it though.
