Please don’t tell me that the Selection Committee randomly places teams. Three of last year’s Final Four in the same bracket? Potential Louisville/Kentucky and Duke/Michigan match-ups in the Elite Eight? Come on.
I can’t see Wichita State surviving this bracket. Most models see Louisville taking them out. At least one likes Kentucky to do the trick. On the other side of the bracket, it would seem that Duke and Michigan are on a collision course in Indy. But a big, physical Texas squad could give the Wolverines trouble. And Tennessee has much better efficiency numbers than their seed indicates.
Why in the heck are Iowa and Tennessee in the play-in game?
