Love to see Mason win their tourney and win the first round, Bucknell win their first round and meet in the second round. So what is the possibility of Bucknell and Mason scheduling a ref season game in the future?

Couldn't SMU move up to the 4 line if they win their tourney...

MrPhillie, I love the idea of a GMU vs. Bucknell showdown in the Dance, but don't bet on it happening. Aa for a regular season game, there is nothing for Coach Paulsen to gain. So, I doubt it will happen.

Oddly, both CBS and ESPN dropped Bucknell down from yesterday's bracket to today.

ESPN: 14 seed (from 13) playing Louisville in Indianapolis

CBS: 14 seed (the bottom one) playing Louisville.

Lunardi has Bucknell 14 vs. Louisville 3 in Indianapolis. I don't know why, but he has a downward arrow on Bucknell.

Personally, I would not want to face Louisville. They are probably urinated off for losing to Duke, but then again, who wanted to play Kansas in 2005?

Lunardi's (ESPN) dropped them one spot, from the worst 13 to the highest 14 due to Akron's win in the MAC semis. The two teams simply switched spots. If Akron wins their final today, they will presumably stay in the same spot.

Need to root for Kent State to beat Akron today (or for Princeton, Vermont, or possibly a couple of others to lose).

Btw, I am not sure what CBS is doing. There is no possible rationale for the Bison being the last 14. It appears that Gerry Palm is mailing it in when it comes to slotting the lower seeds.

Not sure either why they could drop. Would not expect RPIs to move much at this point. Jerry Palm is pretty awful as bracketologist historically. I don't put much stock in him.

Anybody here planning on attending? I probably won't. I did Dallas in '06 (that was damn expensive) and locally here in DC in '11.

Vermont vs Albany just tipped. I don't have much hope for an upset here, but you never know.

Great list. All are results worth rooting for. Two might not matter, however. If Colorado State wins, they probably slot in ahead of the Bison. Better RPI, better Pomeroy, etc. And if Davidson wins, they might also jump them. They would still have a worse RPI (high 70's), but they would be A10 champs with consecutive wins over Dayton and URI.

One other note is that UT Arlington is in the SB semis today, so if they win, they will have another shot to lose tomorrow.

Here's a Bucknell fan/family member of a player trying to get to the tourney game. I believe it's a relative of Nate Sestina's, with an interesting lil back story. Check it out...

Depending on where and when, I may try to get to the first round. Go Bison!

Was ahead of myself in the above. If Davidson beats URI, that only gets them to the championship game. Were they also to win that, I am sure they would end up ahead of the Bison in the seeding.

There's a huge snowstorm coming Tuesday that could definitely affect the travel plans of anyone planning on going to the game and will probably influence when the team leaves as well.

How dicey is this from an NCAA compliance point of view? (The notion of boosters giving financial benefit to a player's relative.)

Well if I was a booster I'd imagine I would be smart enough to not even think about donating anything for something like that.

Also I was sharing this more for the interesting story within it.

A higher seed is generally good, but ultimately success will depend more on how we match up against a given team, less on their seed number.
