Bracketology 2021-2022


Recommended Posts

Rutgers:  

beat IU twice 

lost to Lafayette (is there video of this…..wow)

IU:  some good wins

no bad losses 

injury issues 

Michigan:  you had it locked up against IU and blew it…too bad if you get left out 

 

I think any of these 3 could be in SS

but if someone is left out it should be Michigan

Could IU move up a seed line over Davidson?

I bet Davidson does not move.  I think they were probably seeded 10 and will remain there.  What Richmond winning does is move Richmond in as an 11 or 12.  They can't be in the play-in, so we could see 4 12's in the play-in or 2 12's and 2 11's in the play-in.

That seems pretty reasonable.

Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you, but do you think Rutgers beat IU twice?

I do my own bracketology for fun.

I have us as the top 11 seed currently. 

Davidson will stay in for me as an 11 most likely.

The committee is not going to move Davidson at all.  Too late for that.  They stay where they were at.  Richmond bumps one team to the play-in game and that team bumps a team that was slotted for play-in out of the bracket.

I agree. I had Davidson as an 11 prior to their game today. Not moving them.

Richmond's win moves either Michigan, Rutgers, Wyoming, or Notre Dame out of my bracket. 

Who would you all move out of those 4?

If the committee looks at it as which of the 4 is least likely to make a run, it has to be Wyoming or Notre Dame.  Michigan and Rutgers are both capable of making the Sweet 16.

Since Virginia Tech ended up being a bid stealer, I personally would probably punish the ACC and leave Notre Dame out.  That said, if it is these 4 in play for the real committee, I think Wyoming is left out.  the name 'Notre Dame' means something as far as national exposure.

ND should be out. 2-8 in Quad 1

I had ND as my last team in - Wyoming one spot in front of them. 

The metrics favor Wyoming slightly. I think I am going to keep them in and push ND out. 

Definitely could see the committee doing what you said though  @5fouls

Part of the reason everyone had them in was because it was assumed they’d win their league. The committee had a contingency bracket in case that didn’t happen, I wouldn’t assume it was the same spot either way.

They could easily have been a 10 if they won and a First Four if not.

Just looked at the NET.  Regardless of how these last two tournaments play out, there are 27 at large teams with a NET greater than IU.  If that is a major factor in the decision, we should not be in the First Four. 

I honestly don't know how many at-larges there are any more.  I'm thinking 33 or 34?
