It is about time I start explaining my picks, so I don’t seem like a lunatic that has no logic. First off, let me start with me dropping Kansas down a line. They have only won 5 of their last 9, I don’t care if your SOS is number 1. You can’t be a 2 seed with that. Iowa st., might not be the most logical choice, but I gotta pick what the NCAA Committee will do, and they love the ‘best conference’, this year that being, the Big 12. So it would only make sense they take Kansas’ spot. Now, onto my beloved Illinois Illini. I would love for some Miracle to have the selection committee select them, but I don’t see that. Their Big 10 tournament schedule starts with Michigan, a must win for the Illini. That would by no means be enough to get them in. Next would be Wisconsin.If they can somehow pull off one heck of a miracle, by all means they should be in. If they can win that, they might as well claim the Automatic Bid. Rayvonte Rice might be some help with Wisconsin, but a close loss won’t be enough, they have to win that.
