    First 2 teams we’ll play are wildcats…

    TN a 3 seed and we are a 5 seed….yeah, that makes alllllll kind of sense. Sooooo sick of this garbage every damn year.

    1. satcheluk

      Why? They beat us 2 of 3 and finished ranked and we are not.

  3. snoopjdawg

    UNC gifted a cakewalk. Xavier is the #4 one seed. Pathetic. At least Duke has Mich. St. and Kansas to deal with. We play Arizona? And how are we a 5 seed?

    We all know that Kentucky gets hosed every year due to cal’s vocal disagreement with how the NCAA is running the show, however a five seed is bad. The analysts were saying if Tennessee would’ve won today they would’ve moved to a two seed. Kentucky wins and they don’t move at all? In the committees eyes, wasn’t Tennessee better, which would mean we should’ve jumped? Kentucky won arguably the toughest conference in b-ball this year and we get a five? Haha

      Just think how scared those cheaters in Tucson are right now…pre-season #1 and looking at an early exit and any success at all to be vacated by their cheater coaches….or should I say soon to be ex-coaches.

    Isn’t Barnhart on the committee?

  6. GM1978

    of the top 17 teams in the RPI—–SIX are in the Cats’ region

    Personally, I like our bracket. Short of Arizona in round 2 there aren’t any teams I’m looking at like “well, there’s no way we’re winning that one.” Get past the first weekend and we have a great chance at the Final Four.

  8. IAmTheDanger

    What would we do without Mitch B on the committee. He has really saved us the last 2 years.

    SEC tournament doesn’t mean crap! We should decline to play in it and flat out refuse. We risk injury to players and as shown it can only hurt our seed not help. Zona second game and if ya win….got Virginia next…..a bunch of BS. HOW DOES UT remain a 3 seed?!? I mean really?

    1. IAmTheDanger

      Everything you said Chris, exactly!!

  10. Han

    We just won 3 straight to get the SEC tourney title without our best rebounder, who will be back, and we’re 3 seeds worse than UNC?

  11. jaws2

    As usual Puke and UNC can’t play until the FINAL!
    We could get our conference champ in the Reg SEMI!!!
    Alabama, FL, and ARK in the SAME region!!
    ACC has 9 teams and Puke in regional with ONE, NC State!!! Oh, except Syracuse in the play in game!
    Cal is right, we get HOSED every year! Hell, the entire SEC got hosed!!!! This is pathetic!

    1. jaws2

      Oh, and UNC only has FL ST in their region! What a screwing the SEC got!!!!

  12. 4everUKblue

    Careful if you mention anything about dUKe getting the cupcake bracket every year Rembrandt will call you a conspiracy theorist.

  13. classof68

    Thanks for the easy to read brackets.

  14. ukcamel

    This is a very winnable bracket. Don’t love getting a 5-seed instead of the 3 or 4, and Zona will be a tough second-round game. Wouldn’t be surprised if UVA and/or Cincinnati loses early.

    Also Duke ended up in the toughest bracket and not playing in NC. That was surprising!

  15. 4everUKblue

    Notice they didn’t put dUKe in the same bracket as an SEC team this time…Remember how that turned out last year? LOL

    1. BigBlueNationDude

      Lol haha very funny 4 ever. Comedian. Crickets….

    2. 4everUKblue

      Slater you probably didn’t get that one at all. Still no sign of intelligent life there Slater.

    3. 4everUKblue

      Slater you’re not capable of an original thought either are you?

  16. DelrayCat

    Can we swap with Florida??
    Their draw at a #6 is much better than ours…smh

  17. Miller45

    at least we have some momentum. first off, 1.Davidson is a high quality team that can’t be overlooked.
    2. pending a first round win I would rather have to play Arizona early on while we have momentum.
    3.UVA perennially falls right on their face the first time a team can remotely disrupt the pace they have to play at.
    4. Cincinnati is overrated
    5. the east region is grade school t-ball
