    NCAA Basketball Bracket 2015

    It's out now and Gah! I sure don't like the Michigan State seeding after the Spartans lost the Big 10 Tournament championship game to Wisconsin. First round against Georgia (tough SEC team) and if they win they get Virginia in the second round. And that's just to get to the Sweet 16. MSU could be one and done this time. Hope Coach Izzo has some rabbits he can pull out of a hat.
    I don't like Arizona's chances either. In the second round they will likely have to play Virginia Commonwealth (that'll be fun) and after that Baylor might be waiting in the round of 16.

    I was surprised Duke got a 1 seed after not making it to the ACC tournament championship game. However I think the committee felt they had to reward them for beating fellow 1 seed Wisconsin at home.

    The big question is, of course, can anyone beat Kentucky?

    I am pissed that Murray State didn't get an at large bid and yet UCLA did.

    You might have a good argument there.

    Kansas and Notre Dame are in the same bracket with Kentucky. Of the two I'd say Notre Dame has the best shot. Kansas didn't look all that impressive in the Big 12 Tournament final.
    If Kentucky gets to the Final Four they'll be hitting on all cylinders and I doubt they can be stopped.
    Duke and Kentucky...I wonder where I've heard of that matchup before?

    I understand that the powers that be have given Kentucky a 49% chance to win it all. That's really high. It's usually in the 30s for the overall number 1.

    Ray, I think Michigan State is underseeded.

    All I care about, is that Boise State made it to the dance!!

    Only problem is we have Dayton @ Dayton. I believe this is the 1st time this has ever happened where a team has a home court advantage in the NCAA. Of course it had to be us, but we beat San Diego at home earlier and that I believe was almost as tough! Dayton is on a 21 game home winning streak. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

    Good luck to everyone one else (unless your from Dayton... of course!).
    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Admittedly they started the season badly but they had a ton of injuries to start. Then they went on a 25 game winning streak. Any team that is able to win 25 games straight in D1 deserves to be in the big dance.

    Anyway I will be pulling for UK.

    As a UK fan, the only team that concerns me is Arizona.

    UK killed Kansas early in the season. Duke is good, but just doesn't have the full package. Notre Dame; a great team, but not good enough.

    Now, if the Harrison twins resort to flopping their way to a win, anyone can beat UK at this level of competition. The hope is that they act like adults and stay in the game.
