PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Can't argue Louisville IMO
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
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
I'd rather get put out West with Gonzaga
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.
oregon a 12??? how's your pac 12, chuck!! hahaha
please dont let us be the 3 here
Win the PAC 12 and get a 12. Real good conference Chucky.
YES!!!! hardest bracket is the MW
Michigan State at Auburn Hills will help out
pleeeeeease give us west
Michigan beat Memphis last year in Columbus, a game which I was at. Tigers will be out for blood!
Ohio State's band SLAUGHTERED Michigan's band. If this were a football game, it would have been Florida State vs. Savannah State. - SB Nation following OSU vs. UM 2012
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.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
Yeah that is very surprising. I thought they deserved a higher seed.
"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you."
Midwest looks tough. Louisville, Duke, MSU.
Saint Louis and Creighton are no jokes either. Wow.
Don't give up... Don't ever give up.
Can anyone post a picture of the bracket?
I think Duke losing so early in their conference tournament dropped them down to bottom 2 seed
"Success - it's what you do with what you got" - Woody Hayes
Remember the S curve has been proven not to be real...so Duke being the "worst 2" isnt necessarily true.
Glad we avoided the Midwest! Please let us be a 2 seed in Gonzagas bracket!
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
If UNC beats Villanova, and that's a true 50-50 matchup.
True. Either way, Kansas got a tough draw.
KU got a tough 8-9 match up.
Michigan Vs. Akron I'm calling it NOW.................
let's go jackrabbits
looks like we are the 2 out west with the zags!!!!!!!!! gtown to the south
That cinches it: we're heading west.
Both Michigan and MSU at Auburn Hills. Nice spot for both of them to start
Not with their bracket. Yowzers!
Michigan gets beat in the 2nd round.
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.
Gators are a 3 seed? WOW. We better be a 2 seed!
minny is in!!! good for them
AGREED, GLAD TO SEE them making, sorry for yelling during the first half of my response
5 B1G teams in 2 regions...
How many do we get total?
Wisconsin probably a #6 in the East. Illinois will be out west with us.
That makes 8?
Good matchup for Minnesota
My best guess: the top seeds in the West are Gonzaga, the Bucks, New Mexico, Marquette.
We would play Marquette on an Aircraft Carrier.
looks like our 3 will be either new mexico or kansas state. can't say i hate that arrangement.
watch out for butler potentially being our 7 seed though
that would suck terribly. really praying for them to show up in the brackets before that
Overall that bracket isn't quite as tough, but I wouldn't be surprised if KU is upset in second round.
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!
The South region is pretty stacked.
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
I don't agree. Florida seems like a weak 3, and Michigan playing like they have been lately isn't a very good 4.
8 or 9 B1G teams?!
indy is east. we are guaranteed to be west.
Why does Dayton host NCAA tournament games? Sh**hole.
Because they routinely sell them out.
Because UD Arena is a great basketball venue.
I've been there (not to see a game admittedly) but I don't get it.
Location, almost perfect center for Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, & not too far for Illinois.
I just selfishly wish we hosted games here in Cbus at Nationwide Arena more than just once in a great while.
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.
Thanks for schooling me on this.
Cbus may have taken a 5 year break once, but not schooling. Informing.
Indy has a tough second round game. NC State with Lorenzo Brown and CJ Leslie will be tough for them.
Vegas isn't all that great. If they got a #5, New Mexico has to be a #3.
BUTLER TO EAST!! that is comforting
hahahha Fail on Miami and Butler
means tOSU was 5th seed in the whole tourney
I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me
We are headed West
wait wtf? new mex the 3 and kstate the 4 out west? or vice versa?
would of loved to see Bucknell against big con team
Wow who's left... Gonzaga, Kansas State, New Mexico???
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.
Looks like Sconnie is going to be in our region. Hate their brand of basketball.
If Michigan had held on and we were B1G co-champs (regular season) would we have been the #1 in the East?
I kinda wanted Marquette in our region, as a potential match-up for the game that never happened.
In the Aircraft Carrier regional bracket...
im guessing wisky the 5 out west, with unm/kstate as teh 3 and 4
East lower bracket is weak
could we be the 1 over gonzaga??
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.
O crap we have to play NMU if we go to the sweet 16. I can feel it!
New Mexico might be the team playing #6 Wisconsin. That's a frustrating matchup.
I called it! I told YOU!
I don't mind the West bracket at all
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.
Marshall Henderson vs Wisconsin will be the best thing ever to watch
Dang Wisky got Ole Miss!
Thad - chillin.
2 seed vs. Iona in Dayton!
i dont hate this at all
ND will be a very tough match up IMO
not liking our second round...
Love that draw.
Wish we had that friendly a draw two years ago.
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?
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.
Here's a little info on Iona
kentucky is out. can't say im sad about that
Wait where is Kentucky?
at home Goodwin, Cauley Stein, Noel and the other guy already signed with agents
with the way we finished the season why all the Ohio State hate
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.
way to go Squirrel
Notre Dame could be a very tough second round matchup.
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.
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
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.
Vitale is going to spend the entire ESPN special bitching about the Kentucky "snub."
Vitale will have a blood vessel pop because Duke isn't the #1 overall seed and granted a bye until the final four!
looks like Robert Morris should have been in the tourney...
Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever!
Norte dame in the 2nd round, if we can advance.
I think we got the most favorable bracket possible. Kansas's bracket is a gauntlet
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
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
Dicky V giving OSU some love. I'm loving this!
Suddenly Notre Dame and ISU are better than us according to the idiots on CBS
I'm happy with this.
at least IONA wont play ugly
For once------ Vitale makes sense. Yes BUCKS
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.
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!
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.
