George Mason Bracketology Part II

The Patriots might not be getting all the respect they deserve in the polls but they seem to be by the Bracketologists out there.  This past weekend's Bracketbusters success really boosted the CAA's chances for three-bids in this year's tournament.  Right now a lot of experts are tabbing the Patriots as a 7 seed, which is most likely based on them being projected as winning the CAA and getting the auto-bid.

I'd love to see a 7 seed, and failing that I'd kinda rather see us drop down to a 10 seed, just because if you win your first game in the tourney, your second round opponent would be 2 seed -- as a 8 or 9 seed you face a 1 in the second round. But looking at the current caliber of opponents in the projections, I'd say those are winnable games! Though Michigan State sure wouldn't take us lightly!

I don't see the CAA getting 3 teams. The only possible way this happens is if VCU wins the Conference Tournament. VCU will never make it as an at large, they have too many bad losses.

I agree with everything you say except you mention VCU having to win the CAA tourney. With your statement any CAA tourney winner other than GMU or ODU would put 3 in the Big Dance. Even Georgia State, Northeastern, etc.

You say that like they aren't currently on a stupid run :)

Exactly, the session includes several first round games, but you can buy a package for all sessions. No way Mason is going to play in DC after 2006, I'm thinking. I might get some tickets for DC anyway, just to enjoy the games. Another thing that is fun is the practice sessions, free to the public.

Since I'm here, two things all Mason fans still want to see from this team: no losses to high rpi teams in the rest of the season or CAAT...and no "one and done" in the NCAAT. Focus baby. GO PATS!
