Today has already been busy and it's only 3:30 here in the Central Time zone. Let me clear up a few questions I'm sure are circling in your mind.
As I type this Villanova just knocked off Marqutte at the buzzer........(more on that in a minute)
1) What about Baylor's magical run to the Big 12 semifinals?
The last thing we need around here is someone stroking their ego, but I can't help but brag just a litlte now. I picked the Bears as one of my potential Cinderellas last week in my preview for conference tournaments. Don't be surprised if they win it.
2) Why does Clemson do this January/February swoon every year?
No idea. It doesn't make sense to me but congratulations to Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets may be the most improved young team from the start of the season to the end of the season. Watch out for them next year. The Tigers seed is dropping like a rock.
3) What do Kentucky & Michigan's wins mean?
Honestly not much. Beating Iowa and Ole Miss does not mean hardly anything this year. For Michigan they did knock off a team that has already won games against Wisconsin and Penn State. Earlier in the year both UK & MI lost to the teams they beat today.
4) Minnesota's win over Northwestern does ___________?
Keeps them alive but not much more. The Wildcats are mediocre at best and very inconsistent. The win gives Minnesota a great chance to get a signature win versus Michigan State tomorrow.
5) Who is done?
Miami is done after being blown out by Virginia Tech. Providence is all but done at this point depending on the showings by other bubble teams, including games in progress as I type this.
6) When's the new bracketology coming out?
Any second now. I am going to try to update it hourly.
