It's that time of year once again when the college basketball world gets engulfed in bracket talk. Who is on the bubble? Who are the top seeds? Why the heck is my team ranked so low? So I decided to give it my own shot here.
I've got Baylor as a 6 seed if the tournament were to start today, and I've seen BU anywhere from a 4 seed to an 8 in other brackets that have been released today. The Bears have a couple of high quality wins and all of their losses have come against teams that are in the top 8 of the RPI. There's still a long way to go in the season, but Baylor is comfortably in the tournament field as of right now, and one of seven Big 12 teams that made my field of 68.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I'm going to try to put one of these together every week for the rest of the regular season.
