You don't like this? Barkley just picked the higher seed in every game, except for picking Iowa because Kenny told him Iowa was good.

The committee has a high opinion of the Pac 12, I think.
But Arizona got a 6. I think maybe they are having to move teams in the 7 bid conferences up or down a line or so in order to comply with bracket matchup rules.

UConn should have been a 7.
I wonder if the American should reconsider playing a Sunday championship. They probably had UConn slotted the same whether or not they won today, since they had to have a separate bracket ready to go in 15 minutes if Memphis won.

Harrisburg, Pa.
SFA a 14???! Fuck that noise, especially with Yale as a 12.

Gotta get to Brooklyn Friday to watch them beat WVU.

This coverage is brutal - just torturing viewers with the annoying slow reveal.

The leaked brackets represent karmic justice

Indiana, Kentucky, and Kansas in Des Moines. Good luck getting tickets, UConn fans and everyone else.

Was really hoping Monmouth would get in with that tough road/neutral site out-of-conference schedule.

Cuse on the 10 line is bizarre. They should be a first in at best. And the Committee's approach to the American is weird. Put 4 in, so obviously they respected the parity, but if the Conference is that good, Connecticut is under seeded.

Thanks. Never been to first round games.

Do they announce times tonight or tomorrow?
Here's a tip. Second round games are the easiest tickets to snatch for cheap or even for free as the fans of the first round losers give them away on the way out. Don't buy a package only buy a first round game ticket.

If Connecticut, Kansas, Indiana, and Kentucky advance past the first round, the four teams playing two games in the second round in Des Moines will have a combined 22 national championships between them.

This is ultimately BS though...did Mich St deserve a 1? Probably...but had they got one they wouldn't be in the Midwest. Sparty made out just fine
I'm with you. No one has an easier path to the round of 16 than MSU, and their likely regional opponents (Utah or Seton Hall in the semi, UVA or ISU in the final) are hardly invincible. I'd take MSU's draw over just about anyone else's.
