    per the bracket matrix, bottom two 5-seeds and top two 6-seeds:

    kentucky (4.85)
    ohio state (5.46)
    -
    houston (5.57)
    florida (6.02)


    when the selection committee released the preliminary top 4 seeds a month ago, osu was 14th on the s-curve. this was the sunday following the win at purdue. monday's ap poll, on the other hand, had us quite a bit higher at 8th.

    i don't think we're going to be a 5-seed -- that is, unless the committee gives us a 5 because of logistics, conference affiliations, and whatnot. houston's performance so far only increases the probability that they'll move up a seed.


    current 11-seeds per the bracket matrix:

    ucla
    oklahoma
    texas
    st. mary's
    loyola-chicago (automatic)
    new mexico state (automatic)

    current 3-seeds per the bracket matrix:

    tennessee
    michigan state
    m*ch*gan
    auburn

    by the way, shame on cbs/turner for releasing all 68 teams within the first 10 minutes of the selection show. the old format was fine.

    I look forward to people using this thread to update us on the state of their bracket, as if there isn't already a bracket thread (and anybody cares). 8D

    I don't even believe in doing brackets anymore. I hate going on social media and people bragging about picking a team even though they have watched no basketball this year "Dude I picked Loyola in my bracket, this is sick!" shut up

    i'm sure people will start caring about their bp brackets once the brackets are released.

    not sure i exactly follow here, though. were you expecting the bracket contest thread to be the tournament discussion thread? i think there has a been a thread for each every year.

    you do know that you're not required to visit social media sites, don't you? pretty sure a person can exist without facebook and twitter if they so choose to.

    but they're not going to say it if you don't fill out a bracket?

    I'm sure I won't care about anyone else's brackets even after the tournament starts, but if I did I'd check the bracket thread or contest site.

    There's nothing more exciting than checking the game discussion here and getting continuous bracket updates from a few people. :slappy:

    in that case, i'm going to post my bracket updates after every tournament game. and i'll pm you the updates, too.

    edit: and i'll post my tweet updates just for bm11.

    If they bring up the subject of brackets I promptly tell them I don't believe in doing brackets and I don't want to hear about theirs

    which makes you more insufferable than them. you're like the person who brags about not watching television. :lol:

    Only a few more minutes of talking heads speculating about who is in, thank fuck.
