3/14 3PM ET Bracket

Thoughts:

4th #1 seed, 4 teams for 1 spot, giving Wisconsin the edge because of Top 25 record and Road record

St. Louis- I'm also higher on St. Louis than most brackets, scheduled in non-conf and 11-1 road record will help them get a 5 seed instead of 6/7, thats an overreaction to what they've seen lately

Bubble- St. Joes has a very weak resume, moving them out, need a win vs Dayton to get the consideration again, Mizzou needs to beat UF to get consideration

Green Bay- a bubble team might play their way in past them... but when I compare them to Mid Tenn State who got in last year its a better resume, better wins, better losses... literally all they don't have are a couple more cupcake wins... is that seriously the difference?
