ACC goes 6-3. Not real impressive. The #1-5 seeds were 6-0. That's solid as we had two 5 seeds which are commonly upset. However, our 8, 9, and 11 seeds lost 8/9, 8/9, and 11/11 "toss-ups". I'm unsure if the six remaining teams should be concerned that the middle of the league struggled or if it won't relate to deep runs by the elite teams.

I'm obviously a homer for VT, but I think we had the toughest first round draw and performed well against a Wisconsin team that probably should have been seeded higher than #8. And while the line says we lost by 10, the game was much closer than that.

How are your brackets doing?

I missed 7 so far, including first 4, with Miami being my only loss beyond the second round. I'm perfect in the South & my only miss in the West was VCU. I had Rhode Island winning as well.

Elite 8 picks?

I have Duke beating Villanova, Arizona beating ND, Louisville beating Iowa State & UCLA beating North Carolina.

Not really a great start for the ACC so far. 0-2 verses the B1G & 0-1 verses the B12. Our 6 wins are against 12, 14, 15 & 16 seeds. All of our second round games are against power conference teams. The PAC is 5-0 but their best win is against 6 SMU. B12 is 5-2 but their best win is against WF. The SEC is 4-1 while beating 2 Big East teams. The BE went 3-4 but have a win over 6 Maryland.

RE: Open Thread- NCAA Tournament
Records so far for the P5 conferences:

PAC 5-0
SEC 4-1
B1G 5-2
B12 5-2
ACC 6-3

Of the 8 total P5 losses, 5 were to other P5 teams, leaving their record against all other schools at 20-3.

The three losses were: Xavier (Maryland), MTSU (Minnesota) and Cincy (K State).

The wins by Cincy and MTSU were the only wins for the G5 conferences. They also posted 4 losses.

Four mid-major* conferences (including Big East, A-10, MVC and WCC) were a combined 7-6, with the BE going 3-4.

* For this purpose only, I have defined "mid-major" to be non-FBS football conferences that typically get more than the one auto bid to the NCAAT.

The other 18 conferences were a combined 2-18, with their only wins coming in the play-in games.

So far the ACC has been a little underwhelming. I will be cheering on the rest of the conference and hope they fair better then us.

So far, chalk has been holding. We only had four teams seeded to advance past this weekend. Virginia has the other #4 vs #5 matchup, and Florida will be a tough out.

First big upset. #8 Wisconsin takes down #1 Villanova. No repeat champs.

That opens up the East a bit for #2 Duke and #5 UVA if they can win this weekend. Nova would have been the likely Sweet 16 (UVA) and Elite 8 opponent (Duke).
