    <a href="http://bracketproject.atspace.com/comparison.htm">
    According to this Web site (which lists the bracket projections from 31 Web sites and shows the consensus), the consensus four No. 1 seeds as of this posting are, in order: Ohio State, UCLA, Wisconsin and Kansas.</a>

    Only Ohio State and UCLA are listed as No. 1 seeds on all 31 projections.

    Predicted No. 2 seeds: North Carolina, Florida, Texas A&M and Georgetown.

    Predicted No. 3 seeds: Pittsburgh, Southern Illinois, Memphis and Washington State.

    Predicted No. 4 seeds: Maryland, Virginia Tech, Nevada and Duke.

    The Big East is predicted to get eight bids, the ACC seven berths, the Pac-10 six and the Big Ten five.

    Obviously there will be some shuffling in the next week.

    (Edited to add Big East projection)

    I don't see how Pittsburgh can get a No. 3 seed. Or how Duke can be a four-seed.

    If the Hokies keep playing like they are right now against Clemson at home, they'll be making a case for dropping them down.

    Their server's been acting wonky the last few days.

    I think ... G'Town, Nova, Syracuse, Notre Dame, West Virginia, Marquette, Louisville? I know West Virginia was a 12-seed with all three CAA teams, but that was yesterday.

    I just clicked on the link and it worked for me.

    I should have listed the Big East since it is projected to get eight bids.

    VT will go into the NCAA with three straight losses perhaps - sixth seed at best.

    For the CAA? You don't think ODU and tomorrow's winner go?
    Suppose VCU loses? Out at 26-7?

    Nah. What are the odds that the selection committee would take a CAA team that lost in the conference semifinals?

    Losing to the rat bastards is going to undo ODU's 12 straight wins and the win over Georgetown.

    Unless their AD is on the selection committee.

    No, that is Mason's AD. But you knew that.
    VCU at 26-7 if it loses?

    I can't see the CAA getting 3 under any circumstance.
    Also not sure the Bg East is getting 8... I think WVa or Villanova could be out with a bad loss in the Big East Tourney
