    Best bracket I've seen yet

    Looking at the Bracket Matrix, which you can find here The Bracket Project's Bracket Matrix - 2012

    I found the best or I should say easiest bracket for us to advance to the sweet 16 yet.

    And start the tourney off with a game against LE? That'd be fun.

    Well that would certainly be an interesting first game.

    I was checking out Bracket Matrix a little while ago for the We All Hate Jerry Palm thread, and I was looking at outliers ... saw someone had as ISU as a 6, so I checked it.

    Right now, I trust prognosticators who have ISU between 7 and 10.

    But 6 is certainly within reach.

    And, amusingly enough, lookie who's the 11 seed in our bracket ...

    Boo--I'd rather take a 7 seed and play in Omaha.

    Wow. I want this bracket. I'm not saying ISU is going to make a Final Four run, but if they were going to, it would be in a bracket like this. And Iowa State-Georgetown has 1997 Iowa State-Cincinnati written all over it.

    What part of "ISU is not playing in Omaha as long as long as the Selection Committee is trying to protect Kansas and Missouri" do you not get?

    Besides, I'll take a deeper run at a more neutral site over a quicker out at a closer to home site any day.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Looking at who he has picked as 11 and 3 seeds, I'm not sure we'd make a deeper run as a 6. Those 10 seeds are fluffy.
