SB Nation’s complete printable bracket for the 2011 NCAA Tournament is out and ready for friendly office and neighborhood wagering.
Selection Sunday was kind to the Georgia Bulldogs and Clemson Tigers, but not such a good day for fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Virginia Tech Hokies, and Boston College Eagles. Clemson, the CAA’s VCU, UNC-Asheville, and Alabama State are all in the first-four play-in round, meaning just about any Southeastern hoops fan can talk themselves into some sort of rooting interest for the bracket’s newest feature.
No. 10 Georgia gets the No. 7 Washington Huskies in their opening game. It’s an excellent draw, especially compared to their supposed bubble standing coming in. Some had the Dawgs out, some had them in the play-in round … the highest I saw was a No. 11 seed, but this is even better.
All told, four ACC teams, three CAA teams, and five SEC teams made the cut, along with the automatic entries for various one-bid Southeastern conferences.
