Can't argue Louisville IMO

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

BUCKfutter's picture

not at all. sadly, we are probably the 2 in that bracket

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

Triv's picture

I'd rather get put out West with Gonzaga

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

BUCKfutter's picture

huge that duke and msu are with louisville. our bracket is instantly easier

Wonder where UK will play their NIT game.  Kind of a smack in the face UL playing in Lexington. 

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Charles Barkley is a dumb ass. Sorry, facts is facts.

BUCKfutter's picture

oregon a 12??? how's your pac 12, chuck!! hahaha

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

BUCKfutter's picture

please dont let us be the 3 here

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

Win the PAC 12 and get a 12.  Real good conference Chucky.

BUCKfutter's picture

YES!!!! hardest bracket is the MW

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

d1145fresh's picture

Michigan State at Auburn Hills will help out 

BUCKfutter's picture

pleeeeeease give us west

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

BME_Buckeye's picture

Michigan beat Memphis last year in Columbus, a game which I was at. Tigers will be out for blood!
Ignore this!

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

A 26-win team out of the Pac-12 is a #12 seed? Wow.
They had Duke at the lowest #2 seed? The Louisville fans are going to be furious.

AJW_16's picture

Yeah that is very surprising. I thought they deserved a higher seed.

"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you." 

rdubs's picture

Midwest looks tough. Louisville, Duke, MSU.

OurHonorDefend09's picture

Saint Louis and Creighton are no jokes either. Wow.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

xFactor11's picture

Can anyone post a picture of the bracket?

d1145fresh's picture

I think Duke losing so early in their conference tournament dropped them down to bottom 2 seed
 

Hovenaut's picture

Midwest......yee-ouch.

UrbanCulture's picture

Remember the S curve has been proven not to be real...so Duke being the "worst 2" isnt necessarily true.

tdible2132's picture

Glad we avoided the Midwest! Please let us be a 2 seed in Gonzagas bracket!

AJW_16's picture

The big question is where UM ends up. Playing in Auburn Hills would be a big plus for them. Interested to see where they end up.

Awesome 2nd round game: Kansas v UNC

Buckeye Chuck's picture

If UNC beats Villanova, and that's a true 50-50 matchup.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

armybuckinva's picture

True.  Either way, Kansas got a tough draw.

rdubs's picture

KU got a tough 8-9 match up.

BME_Buckeye's picture

Michigan Vs. Akron I'm calling it NOW.................

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

BUCKfutter's picture

let's go jackrabbits

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

BUCKfutter's picture

looks like we are the 2 out west with the zags!!!!!!!!! gtown to the south

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

Buckeye Chuck's picture

That cinches it: we're heading west.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

d1145fresh's picture

Both Michigan and MSU at Auburn Hills. Nice spot for both of them to start
 

Buckeye1996's picture

Not with their bracket. Yowzers!

JTownBuckeye's picture

Michigan gets beat in the 2nd round.

Squirrel Master's picture

UM might not make it to the second round. S Dakota St can match up with them well and I truly feel UM is overrated. Burke is awesome but without him, they aren't a tourney team. 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Squirrel Master's picture

Gators are a 3 seed? WOW. We better be a 2 seed!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

BUCKfutter's picture

minny is in!!! good for them

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

dubjayfootball90's picture

AGREED, GLAD TO SEE them making, sorry for yelling during the first half of my response

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

jeremytwoface's picture

5 B1G teams in 2 regions...
How many do we get total?

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Wisconsin probably a #6 in the East. Illinois will be out west with us.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

jeremytwoface's picture

That makes 8?

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

d1145fresh's picture

Good matchup for Minnesota 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

My best guess: the top seeds in the West are Gonzaga, the Bucks, New Mexico, Marquette.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Baroclinicity's picture

We would play Marquette on an Aircraft Carrier.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

BUCKfutter's picture

looks like our 3 will be either new mexico or kansas state.  can't say i hate that arrangement.

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

UrbanCulture's picture

watch out for butler potentially being our 7 seed though

BUCKfutter's picture

that would suck terribly. really praying for them to show up in the brackets before that

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

rdubs's picture

Overall that bracket isn't quite as tough, but I wouldn't be surprised if KU is upset in second round.

Ohio1St81's picture

I'm optimistic about the way this is shaping up for us, and I'd love to see the Zips make some noise in that region! 

Bucks43201's picture

The South region is pretty stacked.

"You win with people." - Woody Hayes

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I don't agree. Florida seems like a weak 3, and Michigan playing like they have been lately isn't a very good 4.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

jeremytwoface's picture

8 or 9 B1G teams?! 

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

BUCKfutter's picture

indy is east. we are guaranteed to be west.

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

Why does Dayton host NCAA tournament games? Sh**hole.

toad1204's picture

Because they routinely sell them out.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02... 

argyle182021's picture

Because UD Arena is a great basketball venue.

741's picture

I've been there (not to see a game admittedly) but I don't get it.

Gametime's picture

Location, almost perfect center for Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, & not too far for Illinois.

So I guess I'm one of a kind in a full house

741's picture

I just selfishly wish we hosted games here in Cbus at Nationwide Arena more than just once in a great while.

RedStorm45's picture

We host it every 4 years, which is as quick as the games can return.  Dayton inexplicably hosts the play-in games every year as well as the next rounds every 4 years or so.

741's picture

Thanks for schooling me on this.

RedStorm45's picture

Cbus may have taken a 5 year break once, but not schooling. Informing.

Squirrel Master's picture

Indy has a tough second round game. NC State with Lorenzo Brown and CJ Leslie will be tough for them. 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Vegas isn't all that great. If they got a #5, New Mexico has to be a #3. 

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

BUCKfutter's picture

BUTLER TO EAST!! that is comforting

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

dubjayfootball90's picture

hahahha Fail on Miami and Butler

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

captain obvious's picture

means tOSU was 5th seed in the whole tourney

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

jeremytwoface's picture

Yikes...
We are headed West

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

BUCKfutter's picture

wait wtf? new mex the 3 and kstate the 4 out west? or vice versa?

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

captain obvious's picture

would of loved to see Bucknell against big con team

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Ohio1St81's picture

Wow who's left... Gonzaga, Kansas State, New Mexico???

Squirrel Master's picture

I don't see anyone left outside of us and Gonzaga for the west 1 and 2. Wisky will be out west too. Probably the 4 seed. Wonder who the 3 will be. 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

argyle182021's picture

Looks like Sconnie is going to be in our region.  Hate their brand of basketball.

741's picture

If Michigan had held on and we were B1G co-champs (regular season) would we have been the #1 in the East?

Bucks43201's picture

I kinda wanted Marquette in our region, as a potential match-up for the game that never happened.

"You win with people." - Woody Hayes

Baroclinicity's picture

In the Aircraft Carrier regional bracket...

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

BUCKfutter's picture

im guessing wisky the 5 out west, with unm/kstate as teh 3 and 4

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

captain obvious's picture

East lower bracket is weak

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

BUCKfutter's picture

could we be the 1 over gonzaga??

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

BUCKfutter's picture

nope haha

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Whoa, both Marquette and Syracuse stay in the East. That surprises me.
So we get Kansas State as the 4, Notre Dame probably as the 5. Only question is if they seed the Lobos ahead of us, but I kinda doubt it.

BME_Buckeye's picture

O crap we have to play NMU if we go to the sweet 16. I can feel it! 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

New Mexico might be the team playing #6 Wisconsin. That's a frustrating matchup.

I called it! I told YOU! 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

d1145fresh's picture

I don't mind the West bracket at all

Squirrel Master's picture

Lets see, NMU, gonzaga, wisky, K State and ND with OSU. 
Gonzaga will be tough as well as NMU. We just handled Wisky although it could have easily gone their way. I don't think OSU sees them though. Not concerned with KSU and ND.

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

d1145fresh's picture

Marshall Henderson vs Wisconsin will be the best thing ever to watch

Braxton2Devin's picture

Dang Wisky got Ole Miss!

Thad - chillin.

2 seed vs. Iona in Dayton!

i dont hate this at all

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

FROMTHE18's picture

ND will be a very tough match up IMO

UrbanCulture's picture

not liking our second round...

Baroclinicity's picture

Wish we had that friendly a draw two years ago.
 

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I hate to be That Guy, but #7 is a lot lower than I was expecting Notre Dame to get. They're 4 full seeds lower than Marquette?

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Just checked, and Lunardi had the Irish as a #5 in the last Bracketology. I would guess he's not off by 2 seeds very often.

kentucky is out. can't say im sad about that

Wait where is Kentucky?

captain obvious's picture

at home Goodwin, Cauley Stein, Noel and the other guy already signed with agents

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

captain obvious's picture

with the way we finished the season why all the Ohio State hate

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Squirrel Master's picture

I know, they are saying OSU needs to look out for ND. Screw that mess. OSU would eat them alive with their small lineup. ND might have decent size and shooting but they don't have the guns to match up with Thompson, Ross, Scott, Craft and Smith. 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

captain obvious's picture

way to go Squirrel

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Dean's picture

Notre Dame could be a very tough second round matchup.

Squirrel Master's picture

SUCK IT MATT LAUER! BUCKEYES ARE A 2 SEED!
Great bracket and in Dayton! Love it. Not concerned about any of those teams. ND isn't good enough. 
Pittsburgh is a nasty team for Zaga to play early. Only team to be concerned with will be New Mexico. 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

BUCKfutter's picture

hahahaha everyone kissing our butt until the bracket comes out, then the hate starts again. yup, notre dame, iowa state, and unm are all better than us hahahaha

johnblairgobucks's picture

I caught that on CBS.  Showed OSU's 1/2 the bracket, and those "experts" said they could see all the teams advancing to the Final 4, except OSU.  

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Vitale is going to spend the entire ESPN special bitching about the Kentucky "snub."

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Squirrel Master's picture

Vitale will have a blood vessel pop because Duke isn't the #1 overall seed and granted a bye until the final four!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Colorado Buckeye's picture

looks like Robert Morris should have been in the tourney...

Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever!

johnblairgobucks's picture

Norte dame in the 2nd round, if we can advance.

kr66osu's picture

I think we got the most favorable bracket possible. Kansas's bracket is a gauntlet

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I don't think our (potential) next four games will be any more difficult than the last month has been. There aren't too many tournament teams that can say that.
I'm OK with the draw. I think Notre Dame is too good for a #7 seed, but if you can't beat the Irish you have no business talking yourself up as a potential champion.
And while I think Gonzaga deserved its seed, there's something to be said for a team facing great teams week in and week out. I think the last team from outside the big boy conferences to be a #1 seed was the year that St. Joseph's made their run, and in the end, they couldn't quite get it done. I think we deserve to be the favorites in this region.

This Team = 2010-11 Huskies

skiehl's picture

It's weird, I've been thinking the same thing. It's just better to get hot than to be the best team all year

BME_Buckeye's picture

Dicky V giving OSU some love. I'm loving this!

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

kr66osu's picture

Suddenly Notre Dame and ISU are better than us according to the idiots on CBS

The Braden's picture

I'm happy with this.
 
Go Buckeyes!

captain obvious's picture

at least IONA wont play ugly

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Johnniebuckeye's picture

For once------   Vitale makes sense.     Yes   BUCKS

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Love it that we start in Dayton.  Would rather be in the midwest bracket to keep some home court advantage in the next round, but the West bracket is there for the Buckeyes to take it and move on to the Final Four.  Just got to keep playing like we have been. 
Go Bucks!

Squirrel Master's picture

F U Doug Gottlieb. "ND makes teams shoot jump shots and OSU can't shoot jump shots"
REALLY? CUZ LAST TIME I CHECKED, OSU IS A JUMP SHOOTING TEAM! LMAO
There is no post game with Amir and Ravenel! Jump shots are how IDK, Thomas makes his points, Craft and Smith. Ross! 
Doug Gottlieb is a UK and SEC homer. He wants Florida to win it all since UK is out. He constantly thinks B1G is over rated and not to say he is bias to just the B1G, he also underscores the Big East. He is an ass too. and not on ESPN!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

milesdavis's picture

Weakest region.
Weakest 1 3 4.

Wisconsin 4 times in 1 year. Not good but we know their weak game.

Could be another final 4

That's assuming a lot for march madness though.
