    Weak picks. You have UH in Miami and don’t even have UCF in first 4 out. Clearly threw this together with little thought.


    • Where do you want UH? They have to go somewhere and it’s very likely they aren’t in Houston. They’ll likely be at a non-national seed. I did have UCF in my first four out. I failed to change from the last projections. It’s corrected now.

    How could Long Beach State be the first 4 out? They just swept Irvine. You dont know what the hell your talking about.

    Too much travel for most of the regionals. Why would the NCAA send UNC all the way west to California and San Diego State all the way east to Louisiana when they could easily flip-flop those two teams at least. Plus you have a ton of Texas teams traveling out of state and Rice not hosting any Texas teams. The NCAA tries to save costs on travel when at all possible.


    • The Rice point is valid. The other two are not. SDSU and UNC are likely going to have to fly wherever they go. Getting them “closer” to home means nothing, really. Also, the Texas teams getting shipped are really only Texas, Tech and Houston. I don’t see Houston playing at Rice. I could see Tech or Texas there easily. In the end, though, Kansas makes sense there (Big 12) and ASU would be a good fit there.


      • MarioA

        You really think CSUF gets in? Even though UCI has better record and finished 3rd and UCSB has better RPI? Seems like a longshot.


        • Yes. I have UCI in. I think UCSB played their way out. I wouldn’t be shocked to see Fullerton get left out, but it would be for Illinois or Stanford not UCSB, in my opinion.

    Kansas as a 2 seed? RPI in the 40s, only 34 wins, and an 0-2 mark in the conference tourney. It just doesn’t make sense. I would rather put DBU, Sam Houston St, or Long Beach St as a 2 seed before Kansas.


    • They were the last two seed. I wouldn’t argue against any of those three except SHSU in KU’s place. Bottom line – the bottom of the bracket is pretty weak this year.


  5. phil

    I saw your projection this morning that had arizona state and unc in nashville instead of clemson and unlv. Did I just imagine that?

    Doesn’t really matter the sec being spread out like this most will win their region.
