The decisions have been made.
The picks are in.
It’s anybody’s NCAA Tournament.
Ohio State has a tough, but winnable draw.
OSU is the No. 6 seed in the South and will play the Dayton Flyers, who many thought would be in the First Four, in Buffalo.
The Flyers made it without having to play in the extra game.
The winner gets a very beatable Syracuse in its own backyard.
The Big Ten got interesting draws. In addition to OSU having to play a hungry Dayton team, Wisconsin could get Oregon, with five scorers, in the third round.
Nebraska gets Baylor in the second round and then Creighton in the third round. Brutal. A CBS guy was already talking about Baylor-Creighton in third round.
Michigan got a No. 2 seed in the Midwest when many had TTUN as a No. 1. The Wolverines get two easy games, Wofford and then the winner of Texas-Arizona State.
Iowa got stuck in a First Four game against Tennessee and will play No. 6 UMass with a win. Most projections had Iowa in cleanly, meaning no First Four.
Michigan State gets a No. 4 seed and plays Delaware in Spokane and then either Cincinnati or Harvard in the third round.
The Midwest is loaded. Louisville, Wichita State, Kentucky, Michigan, Duke. Three of last year’s Final Four Teams. Holy stacked bracket, Batman.
