Selection Show/Bracketology Open thread
I was going to do it, and knew it would piss people off to make 3 in a day.
I'm just looking for matchups, that's about it.
Are they going to put Kentucky in St. Louis with Mizzou as the #2? That's not fair.
Who is Michigan going to matchup with?
How are they going to matchup having MSU, OSU, Michigan, Indiana and Wisky on the top 4-5 lines?
Kentucky is the second most popular team in southern Illinois. And the westen half of Kentucky is not far at all from St. Louis, and they travel better than anyone. They'll draw well.
I think we'll play Kansas in the Sweet 16. Duke and Mizz are gone. cant have OSU in the same bracket
Of all the time we're saying " BEAT OHIO", the committee thought we want OHIO BOBCATS Really bad. So they did us a favor.
About 30 min to go. Eager for the selections
Please play on Friday Night.
I'll be on a flight Thursday afternoon-night, which was an idiotic move by me. I just wasn't paying attention to when the tourney way.
If it's on Thursday, I'll be sitting in an office doing someone else's taxes.
March isn't what it used to be.
I'm right there with ya, buddy.
Friday is now guaranteed...halfway to my wish
I think Michigan wants to be in the EAST region...that's what we're rooting for IMO.
My biggest thing is if we're a 3 or a 4 and who the 1/2 seed is in our region for example love the mizzou matchup not so much Carolina Kentucky or syracuse
No night games. No games on Saturday. Please. I want a Friday afternoon and Sunday night weekend for basketball since Hockey is playing Friday and Saturday.
MSU justs earned a number one seed in my book. Great job by the Spartans.
I guess Tom Izzo just validated his COY award. I didn't think MSU was this good but they are a very very good team.
He did a great job. I still think it took a better job by Beilein for us to tie them though - and JB didn't need any rent-a-seniors.
classic. I would give you points, or whatever, but don't know how to do that. I figure a compliment from me might be the same???
Wood has been hot lately but most of this season he came off the bench and contributed little. I wouldn't say it's BECAUSE of Wood being on the team that they preformed as well as they did. What validated his COY, in my opinion, was losing Summers, Lucas, and Lucious and still winning the BT.
Not turning it on until 6 exactly so I won't have to worry about seeing Izzo and them cut down the nets. As for seedings, I would kinda like to see a Columbus matchup. Probably make the drive down
MSU gets a 1, OSU a 2, we get a 3? Does that sound fair? I hope so.
Just give us a short team in round 2.
We are going to be a weak 3 OR 4 seed, IME. Anything is possible, but like Brian said; any win after round 1 is gravy. This team is so hit and miss.
We've won our first-round game the last two times. I want a Sweet 16 bid. After that, then it's gravy.
Coach Beilein is 7-0 in the first game of B1G (5) and NCAA (2) tournaments and 0-7 in the second game while at Michigan.
Which is why I want to win the second round and break that pattern.
I definitely don't think the Sweet Sixteen is a given, or is even to be expected. Our team's looked really tired these last couple games.
After last year, our goal should be to advance further.
Let's not go overboard. If we're a #3 seed, we'll face two teams that (according to the committee) are worse than us.
If this M team doesn't reach the Sweet Sixteen, I will be disappointed, they should make it, they are good enough to do it. Just based on seeding alone it should be expected, we are not going to be playing a great team the first weekend.
Be careful how you word that... technically "Round 1" is the play-in games, and our first game is now Round 2 :) . It's stupid that's how they did it after last year's change, but it is what it is.
We don't want a tall opponent. That's for sure.
Is CBSSports.com going to stream the selection show? Or will I have to wait a few minutes to find out the bracket?
It is supposed to be streaming through the NCAA March madness site http://www.ncaa.com/march-madness
$4 damnit. Greedy CBS, ESPN will have the brackets online minutes after they are revealed
Text 0michigan to 2653 to get it for free.
I'm getting it for free directly from CBS Sports.
you're the man
Florida State upset NC, and they were pegged at a 4 or 5 seed. If they move up to a 3 seed, we could drop to a 4. Our "shit the bed" game against OSU will not sit well. Lets hope not.
I will say 3 seed in the East.
First round matchup with Lehigh
Potential Second Round matchup with the winner of Gonzaga/VCU.
22 in kenpom now, they'd be the favorite.
If you are online but not near a TV
Anyone else a little nervous ??
Why would you be nervous?
Absolutely...about buying a house, getting approved for a loan, starting a new position tomorrow, planning a wedding...oh, you mean the selection show? Hell no, Michigan sports is the most calming aspect of my life right now...
I'm having a wedding soon...planning is about to begin...thanks.
If it makes you feel any better it's the least stressful thing I listed. I have found the more my fiance gets what she wants, the less stressful it is...my only advice is a) stay within a budget and b) do everything as early as you can to avoid last minute problems.
Fear of the unknown
Deserve the number one seed in the West. Well done by them. Nice to get a senior transfer to drop 20+ in a big game. Wonder if the Sparties complained about Russell Wilson at Wisconsin in football?
No, we didn't. Dem's da rules.
