I did some juggling of the regional brackets to try to get Villanova to the East Regional. Auburn is a little closer to Chicago than San Antonio but it's not that much of a difference and maybe the Selection Committee will think to put them in the "South" over the "Midwest". At least I'm hoping being a Villanova fan and living in the Philly area:)

Wyoming is the team that got screwed because of Richmond stealing their bid. Davidson winds up in the First Four because of their loss.

Who wants to see Texas-Texas A&M in the first round?
