Feel so bad thug Oduro does not get to injury any players in the NCAA.

What happened to protecting higher seeds geographically?  MU and Creighton should win but both of them face teams that are closer to their campuses.

All 3 BE teams got outstanding draws for the tournament.

Not a single complaint.

UCONN got absolutely screwed.  Purdue gets a flipping cake walk.

It's a small detail, but us playing Friday gives everyone an extra day of rest and recovery.  That could be huge.

Yup. I know I'll need it.

UCONN got absolutely screwed.

They’re in the toughest region for sure but I’m not convinced Iowa State can match them offensively.

Looking closer at Auburn, their best win is at home against an Alabama team that doesn’t play defense.  Metrics love them but I don’t think they can match UConn offensively either

And the second round matchup would be against one of three schools all a LONG way from Indy.

There are ZERO excuses with this draw. And I’m sure the team agrees.

MU would beat WKU if we played them on their own court. Go online and look at their schedule and who they have played and lost to.  If MU loses this game would be the worst loss in MU tournament history. Not gonna happen, crowd or no crowd.

Ok, Seton Hall and StJohns didn’t get in. Too bad, time to move on. MU is in, two seed and the Shaka jinx of not getting thru to Sweet 16 is going to end.

Fully expect a Sweet 16 berth. No one to blame but themselves if it doesn’t happen.

I am more concerned that the Dictator of WFB will invite WKU's mascot to the 4th of July Parade.

Virginia is 69 (nice) in KenPom.  Of all the teams IN by at-large, they’re  by far the weakest.

Really hope Colorado State thumps them

They'd still be my pick to win, but I just hate the Big East only getting 3 teams in, and then watching UCONN get the toughest path of any 1 seed.  Brings out the football conspiracy theorist in me.

UConn isn't afraid of anyone their bracket.

I don’t blame you, tbh.  It’s only going to be more football-centric moving forward

Seton Hall went 5-8 in Q1 games
They are #62 on KenPom
