    Sample Bracket 3/4/07

    Somebody on here asked for access to my Duke-centered bracketology blog. Since it's not publicly available and I have other personal stuff on there, I would prefer to post some of the content instead. I welcome constructive criticism.

    A couple thoughts: I tend to be a contrarian from published brackets and the media. I think TN and AZ are underseeded. TN has a great RPI/SOS and lost 3 games without their top scorer. They've won several in a row since he's returned. AZ is similar and has won 3 road games in a row.

    As much as the media makes fun of the SEC West, those teams are better than they're given credit for this year. I think Alabama is probably in at 8-8 over Purdue, KSU, or WVU.

    The first big bubble upset will be Wright State stealing a bid at the Nutter Center (WSU home court) from Butler. Butler should move down to an 8 if they do.

    BYU is seeded differently than I would because of the publicity for Sunday games a couple years ago. That means they would play in the east or west regionals and play in Buffalo, Winston, Lexington, or Sacramento. I flipped AZ and BYU because of it.

    i agree that arizona is being discounted too much by the "experts." when i think of them, unc getting dunk after dunk comes to mind. however, if you look at who they have beaten, it is pretty impressive:

    sd st
    stanford (twice)
    washingston (twice)

    yes, they have lost a lot of games but they all were to teams that are either very good or good (ie, no bad losses).
