I need some help understanding the PIGs. I understand why #16s would play each other for the right to get executed by a #1, but I do not understand why there are #11s that have to play in. Why not just set it up so that there are 8 #16s that have to play in to then go against the 4 #1s?



Because they basically did a compromise - not to penalize the worst 8 non-major champions. Instead taking only 4 from that pot nad making the last 4 in at-larges play off to move on.

Assuming Bucknell is a 13, seeing where the likely 4 seeds are slotted, think they will be in Milwaukee (vs. ND or Cincy), Buffalo (vs. WVU or Cincy), or Orlando (vs. Florida or FSU).

And all three of those sites are Thursday / Saturday. Due to the pending storm I assume we'd hit the road tomorrow

When they added four teams, they added two slots on the bottom and two slots on the bubble. I like that six four bubble teams have to play for two slots in the weekend.

Palm bracket had 13 Bucknell vs 4 Cincy in the South.
Bleacher Report has 13 Bucknell vs 4 Florida in Midwest.
Lunardi has 13 Bucknell vs 4 Butler in Midwest.
USA Today has 13 Bucknell vs 4 Notre Dame in MidWest.

I'm not sure what I want! I just would like to have Bucknell play their best wherever they go and see what happens.

We were going to watch with the team but we couldn't make it at the last minute. But yeah, Florida would've been a good opponent. Still think Cincy or Purdue could be ok. Surprised to see Duke as the worst #2.

Shuffle off to Buffalo to see WVU. I might have to drive if the roads are clear.

GO BISON!

Florida Gulf Coast is overrated. I saw them in person in their defense is wanting to be kind.

Hate it. Nice site for traveling, but damn. The one team I did not want to see. Nathan better practice playing 7 on 5 bringing the ball up the court.

Yes their aggressive defense has me worried. When are the game times announced?

We've play against aggressive defenses before. Just need to step it up a notch.
