So, at this point, preliminary brackets are flying everywhere.
Indiana lost to Minnesota.
Michigan lost to Penn State.
Kansas lost to Iowa State, but was erroneously given the victory by the referees.
Arizona lost to USC.
Oklahoma collapsed to Texas.
So, even though this will undoubtedly change by the time the real Selection Sunday comes around, I thought I'd take a stab at listing the tournament field if I were the one to pick the whole thing.
