    If only I had Shaka's new "do!"


    The back of my head looks like his old "do."
    But we don't play nobody.

    Met him for drinks in Reno one time when he was living in SF; saw him again in Spokane in 2016 at the Red Lion BBQ for a bite and a beer.

    Just hoping he's ok... it's been sad to see our Foo community slowly drift away (says the guy who posts only very sporadically now himself)

    The participants are set. Now I'll just be waiting for the true seed list to come out tomorrow, pair everybody up and slot everybody in.

    I expanded the above seed list to 72 ... welcome aboard Kiddwell and rennis as our 71st and 72nd team. As with zags67 and ZagManInPhilly, you're being asked to remain in place until it is known if you need to replace a participant.

    In the last 48 hours, caduceus jumped Angelo. Everybody remained in the same place.

    If I get uber-caffeinated Thursday, I might try to reverse engineer the bracketing. Obviously, bracketing procedures came into play here. But for the Zags to draw #s 2,3,4 that we already played and defeated this season is eerie.

    It was a neat little addition to the CBS show to throw the overall seed numbers up on the brackets. I pressed rewind and pause until I got all that they listed. Still chasing down the teams involved in the 16 and 12 play-in lines.

    Strange, the NCAA's @MarchMadness twitter feed posted, then deleted the 1-68 full seed list. I only saw a link to it via cbssports.com but didn't see the actual list.

    the committee released a notice that they had accidentally sent out an inaccurate seed list ... the mistake was in the 37-39 range. v tech, v commonwealth and st bonnie's. I'm just double checking ... especially since I had an error in the 2019 bracket

    Okay ... think I got it.

    CBS show had it correct.

    NCAA tweeted out an incorrect list per Borzello quoting Committee Chair Barnhart.

    Official seed list on ncaa site jibes with CBS list.

    For the record, we are going with #37 St. Bonaventure, #38 Virginia Tech, #39 Virginia Commonwealth.

    And from the NCAA site

    https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball...-madness-teams

    And the Borzello tweet

    I asked Mitch Barnhart about the Bonnies/VCU issue. He said the 1-68 seed list the NCAA sent out was mistaken in regards to VCU and St. Bonaventure. It should have had the Bonnies at 37 and VCU at 39, not VCU at 38 and the Bonnies at 39.

    I should have said the ncaa site agrees with what the Reveal show on CBS had, which is different from the CBS site.
