    Amusement: My preseason tourney bracket...

    Don't know if I posted anywhere on CF last fall, but just found this on my computer today, tournament projection from November. Worth a chuckle.

    I got 44 teams — hardly impressive. Even worse were the seeding guesses, especially since one of the 1's didn't make it at all.

    ND and Oklahoma were right on with the seeds. Can't be too bad for so far in advance.

    I think its alright. Anytime you're within a couple seeds of anything outside of the top 3 seeds or the bottom 3, its not a bad projection.

    Its easy to peg KU as a 1 or 2 seed. Not so easy to nearly nailing a 6 seed for instance. Ill break out my mag and see how you stacked up with Lindy's projection.

    It's not your fault that Kentucky pooped themselves and didn't make the tourney.

    Probably should have made the tourney either way but without Noel they were not a good team. Not sure when he got hurt but I would expect they get in with him. Without . . . not so much


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    That's actually not bad at all. Given that, what, 18-20 or so seeds are auto bids from junk conferences, 44 teams is pretty good. Even your seeding was pretty accurate for the most part.

    That's pretty good. You've got ISU as a 9 and Notre Dame as a 7. If ISU gets one of those close/bad losses, you would've been spot on.

    A few seeds did go pretty well now that I check it closer. I tended to look at ones that were extreme either way (like UCLA 1 to 6 (real), GU 10 to 2, things like that).

    Good call.

    I didn't see BU placing as high in B12 as a lot of experts/coaches did, thought they'd still get into the field, though.
