Final Bracket Projection

Going out on a limb.  Here’s why I went with Iowa as the last team in over USC and Syracuse:

1) They have two top 50 road wins…Cuse and USC have none.

2.  The committee always seems to give us a surprise.

3.  The resume sure looks similar to Tulsa from last season.

If this happens, we know this guy will be happy…
