    two road losses ding us a bit; but, we were only slightly above 50% chance to win each game. the statistical results of those games, particularly giving up 90+ to Iowa cascade through the simulations for the remaining games. Still considered the #3 team in the conference, although it is very tight from #3-#7.

    We've dropped to a #6 seed. My quick and dirty bracket build landed us in the Wash DC Regional and Hartford Pod.
    Hartford: #3 Buffalo vs. #14 Hofstra, #6 Nebraska vs. # 11 Butler
    - I have Kansas as #2 seed in same region.

    Friday morning update. Decent, frustrating win last night in a game that we absolutely had to win. The B1G should get a good number of teams in the tournament; but, seeding is definitely a logjam for the B1G teams in the 7-9 seed lines. Iowa now showing as sneaking in after a couple of decent wins.

    My quick and dirty bracket build has us in the KC Region if we make the sweet sixteen; but, the path is getting harder as we slide down the seeds.

    First/Second Rounds in Jacksonville
    #2 N Carolina vs. #7 Radford
    #7 Nebraska vs. #10 LSU

    Last night's win was slightly unexpected by the metrics and the projections move us back to a #6 seed. Quick bracket build keeps us in Jacksonville in the KC Region.

    #3 Auburn vs. #14 Loyola Chi
    #6 Nebraska vs. #11 Wofford

    Other side of the Sweet Sixteen path:
    #2 Kansas vs. #15 Montana
    #7 NC State vs. #10 St Johns


    For those interested, these projections have Creighton as one of the last four in. I have them playing Texas in the First Four, then on to Des Moines to face Houston.

    The TeamRankings site has stated that haven't yet been able to judge how the new NET rankings will impact seeding; so, they are still using the old RPI in their bracket selections.

    I assume that the game simulations and corresponding records are not affected by that, just affects who TeamRankings puts into the bracket and where they are seeded.

    I've been poking around bracket projection sites to try to find something that similarly tries to use actual metrics to project the rest of the season; but, most do the old "if the season ended today" type of bracketing.
