LAOJoe's Bracket: March 5th, 2011
Posted on: March 5, 2011 2:48 am
I will try and get it all typed here later but for now you can look at it at the link above. You guys probably do that anyways to begin with.
Games through March 4th, 2011.
I followed the procedures and hopefully I don't have any rematches.
There is one obvious procedural error that I will ignore at the moment. There are 2 SEC teams in the same half of a bracket. As I do not think there is another team worthy of a 9 seed or a 5 seed(or for an SEC team to move up), and because it is still relatively early, I will leave it as is.
Only one major change with Murray State losing and I swapped around a few teams so that ODU and ND won't get a 2nd round rematch of last year's tourney. Also, I have Washington State slipping from a first 4 out to near the end of the bubble. Their best player was suspended indefinitely for possession of marijuana.
The winner of the East Regional would play the winner of the West Regional.
The winner of the Southeast Regional would play the winner of the Southwest Regional. Autobids in ALL-CAPS.
Last Four In (First 4 Participants): Virginia Tech, Memphis, Butler, Michigan
Last Four Out: Colorado State, Southern Miss, Clemson, Nebraska
10 More On The Bubble: Alabama, Penn State, Colorado, Marshall, Drexel, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Washington State, UTEP, New Mexico
ADDED IN: MOREHEAD STATE
DROPPED OUT: MURRAY STATE
Bids By League: BIGE-11, BIG10-6, ACC-5, BIG12-5, SEC-5, ATL10-3, MWC-3, PAC10-3, COL-2, HORIZ-2, CUSA-2, WCC-2
