    Good bracket for the RPI. No real complaints (other than TV. ESPN3 does me no good at work).

    That looks to me like Baylor got the 1 seed and we drew the 4/5 matchup (with CU getting the 5 seed).

    Just for the hell of it.... Last season's KenPom rankings:

    17.) Baylor (vs BC)
    45.) Murray St (vs Auburn)
    65.) Dayton (vs CU)
    74.) Colorado (vs Dayton)
    152.) St. John's (vs Charleston)
    153.) Auburn (vs Murray State)
    161.) Charleston (vs St. John's)
    259.) Boston College (vs Baylor)

    Considering St. John's is supposed to be a lot better this year, I would believe you are correct.

    I know we all want to get to Baylor, but it is going to be tough to get past Dayton.

    Agreed. Dayton's damn good. Should be a hell of a match-up. Europe is going to be huge for us now.

    I think Tad is going to have them fired up at a chance for some payback against baylor. Dayton may be tough but I think we will win it. Baylor disrespected us, and as we saw last year with the preseason polls the buffs don't take kindly to disrespect

    I just consider it fortunate that Baylor is on our side of the bracket

    per ESPN:

    Dayton has some good players and are well coached. They had a 1st round loss to Iowa in the NIT tourney last year.

    The only matchup I don't want to see is Murray State versus Baylor. My tv might never recover from the funky color combinations

    Keep in mind that Dayton's head coach is Archie Miller (Sean's brother). The little twerp used to play at NCSU a decade ago.

    They're a solid program. Went 20-12 (9-7) and got knocked out the NIT 1st Round last year (Archie's first season).

    Looks like they warm up with Arkansas St. This seems to be a really early tournament so they are a bit unpredictable. I would probably look for a team that returns a ton of starters or plays good defense to win it all.

    Speaking of warmups, we'll need to be careful with Wofford. They won the Southern Conference (and thus went to the Big Dance) in 2010 and 2011. They play very good defense. Think Wisconsin. They'll slug it out and wear you down. Going to be a clash of styles. We'll need to be careful -- this is a little different than opening with Fort Lewis.

    It'd be nice to win the tourney, but I really want another shot at Baylor - that matchup has got to happen...
