Gonna be a little different tourney.

First & Second round are Fri/Sun & Sun/Mon this year. So if you're like me & take off of work on Thursday & Friday for the first round, it's Friday & Monday to take off this year.

Sweet Sixteen & Elite Eight set for Sat/Sun & Mon/Tues.

Final Four set for traditional Sat/Mon.


If you need a tourney fix, there's a great video embedded in the article. Never gets old seeing Northern Iowa take down KU.:)

One thing that is noticeable is every year they always seed the big 12 higher than what they actually come out to be.

Tech did in 2019. Everyone else that year not so much.
2018 was also a good year. Kstate made it to the elite 8 as a 9, tech made it to elite 8 as a 3 (had to beat a 2 seed) and kansas made it as a 1. So 3/8 of the elite 8 was the big 12. WVU has always played well.

I also made an edit on my last post, i meant to say that the committee gives the big 12 HIGHER seeds than what it shows on the bracketology

Just saw a CBS bracket with the Pokes at 5, an 8 on ESPN (with Gonzaga waiting should both win), and the most intriguing being Bracketville (purportedly one of the most accurate) which also has us as a 5 and Illinois as the 4. Short of a deeper run, it would be difficult to make the tournament any better than beating Underwood to get to the Sweet 16.

Oh if they can swing it they will 100% put OSU and Illinois in the same pod.
