Two Little Debbies and a cup of coffee
Arizona and Wisconsin got jobbed IMHO.
I thought they were the 2nd and 3rd best teams respectively. Not only did they get placed in a situation where they would have to play in the regional finals, but whoever emerges from that battle will have to face Kentucky in the final 4 as opposed to the championship game.
Villanova is so overrated. Not only did they get placed in the easiest region, they stole a #1 seed from Arizona. They could have put Wisconsin as the 1 in that region and shipped Villanova out West as the 2 seed. Villanova never seems to make the regional finals or even semis as a good seed.
Whatever. It will be a great tourney as usual. The West region is loaded. Kentucky will blow through their region. The East is up for grabs and I think Northern Iowa could sneak into the final 4.
Also, Georgetown sucks and watch out for Michigan State as usual. If they can sneak past Virginia, they could go on a run and face Northern Iowa in the regional finals.
That side of the bracket is a total toss up. I am not sure Duke makes it out of their region, but I do not see a team I am certain could take it down. Iowa State could be a sleeper there, but I look for that half of the bracket to be the wildcard. We could see an oddball final 4 matchup from that side. The other side will bring us Kentucky vs. the Arizona/Wisconsin winner in what will basically be the championship game.
