Warning: I will not be responsible if you copy these brackets and are out of your NCAA Tournament pool by Sunday.  However, if you do listen to my college basketball wisdom and win some money, I want 20% of the pot or at least a shout-out on your twitter or facebook page.  North Carolina is the top seed in the Midwest Regional but Kansas figures to have a huge home crowd advantage in St. Louis that could propel them to the Final Four.

Can The Purdue Boilermakers Salvage a #3 Seed?


The Purdue Boilermakers were dealt a serious blow on Friday Night when they were quite simply embarrassed by Michigan State in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament. This comes directly after losing in Iowa to close out the regular season.

These two steps in the wrong direction could come back to hurt the Boilermakers come Sunday when the committee considers where to draw the line between the 2, 3 and 4 seeds.

Bracket Breakdown: South Regional

By: David Kay

Synopsis
I hate this bracket.  HATE IT!  I don’t want to pick any of these teams to be in the Final Four.  I think West Virginia, Ohio State, Kansas State, and Georgetown would all be better options than any of these 17 squads.  I think if any regional is going absolutely explode people’s brackets, this is clearly it.  Nobody wants to pick Duke even though they are by far the best team in this group with #2 Villanova struggling mightily as of late and #3 Baylor being too much of a sexy sleeper pick to make the Final Four.  Purdue is hurting with the loss of Robbie Hummel and Texas A&M is just a boring team.  Good luck with this bracket folks.
