The 2012 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
As basketball heats up, The pre-brackets are developing
The greatest sports spectacle ever is approaching us. March Madness, the fiercest battle for a trophy, never disappoints us sports fans! CBS does an excellent job year in and year out, when bringing March to life!
In a few short weeks, we will know who is in the NCAA Tournament, where they are placed, and who is left out!
First, who will get the number one seeds- Unless Kentucky falls at home to Vanderbuilt ( they won't) and at Florida there will get a number one seed. They will get the overall number one spot unless they drop 2 more games. Syracuse is about to clinch the number one seed in the Big East. If Notre Dame loses one more or S.U. wins one more in the season, The Orange clinch and will have a number one seed in the Big Dance ( I not only predict that S.U. will win one or both of its final games, but that The Irish will lose to either G'Town or at St. Johns) The other 2 number one seeds are more complicated but shake out like this : If either Kansas or Missouri win the Big 12 Tournament, then that winner gets a number one seed. The 4th one goes to either the winner of the ACC if it is duke or UNC or the the winner of the Big 10 Tourney. Though Kansas, Ohio State and UNC are close to being out of the conversation, they are not yet.
Here are my picks for the number one seeds as of today- 1 Kentucky 2 Syracuse 3 Missouri 4 Mich. State
The two seeds are- Ohio State, Kansas, UNC, Duke/Wisc.
The Bubble watch-
Lower down in the brackets will be the teams that squeak in.The defending champs, UConn. is in danger and will be fighting to get that last spot going to a Big East team. I see only 8 teams from the Big East getting in and either U.S.F. or UConn will be left out.
UCLA and Xavier are still in danger and may get snubbed if they do not perform in their conference tourneys.
Seton Hall, Memphis, Temple and Vanderbuilt will slip in even if they do not get the A. Q. (Which Seton Hall and Vanderbuilt will not get A.Q.s).
This year's Big Dance will have less surprises but better battles than last year's. I guarantee that this will be intense and no number one seed will walk away with their bracket.
Please leave me a comment and tell me who you think will be left out, a number one seed, and the Kings of College Basketball.
