It took a long time to avoid all the rematches and follow the procedures. There were two switches in seed lines to avoid rematches and avoid procedural violations. UNLV and Oklahoma St. were switched as well as William & Mary and Dayton.

Bracketology- Selection Sunday Final Edition

Here is the final edition of my bracketology. You all can hold me against Lunardi and the experts and see how I do.

Auto bids are in CAPS. The winner of the South Region will play the winner of the East Region; the winner of the Midwest Region will play the winner of the West Region.

Last Four In: San Diego State, Maryland, Wisconsin, Boston College

Last Four Out: St. Mary's, Creighton, Arizona, New Mexico

Next Four Out: UNLV, Auburn, South Carolina, Florida

Note: In my mind the last four teams in, and the last four teams out are interchangable. I wouldn't be surprised to see any of the last four in be out, and any of the last four out be in. In my mind, all eight teams are deserving; there have been just too many bid-stealers for the last four out to get in.
