Texas Longhorns NCAA Tournament Selection Show Open Thread

UPDATE:  Texas is No. 4 seed in the West regional in Anaheim. They'll get Summit League champs Oakland in round one. Winner gets Arizona-Memphis winner.  We got screwed. So, so hard.

UPDATE 2:  Set Texas aside: This is the worst, most haphazard bracket I can ever remember. Colorado got absolutely hosed. This bracket is a mess. And a joke.

UPDATE 3:  Download your complete pprintable NCAA tournament bracket here. We'll have a tourney pick 'em pool set up soon.

We didn't get the result we wanted yesterday in Kansas City, but the mourning is brief. Today the NCAA Tournament field is announced, and for the 13th consecutive season the Texas Longhorns are going dancing.

Wiggo projects Texas to be a No. 2 seed and I agree. It's not terribly important whether the Longhorns are a No. 2 or No. 3, but the match ups in the regionals will very much matter. Texas matches up better with some teams than others, and I'll be watching to see who we might play and, of course, where we might play.

Assuming Kansas gets the No. 1 in San Antonio, Wiggo's right that the Longhorns are highly unlikely to get slotted there as well. A No. 2 in New Orleans wouldn't surprise me. I know some folks worry about Texas going to Anaheim, but that would suit me -- and the team -- just fine. 

We'll break it all down after the brackets are released.

Hook 'em!
