Torres Pod: WE HAVE A BRACKET! What the committee got right/wrong + a first look at all four regions
On today's show, it's ALL THINGS BRACKETS! Aaron explains why the committee did a good job this year, before going region by region - which No. 1 seeds have an easy path, where are the upsets + everything you need to know about the field of 68! Here's a full rundown:
What the committee got right and wrong (2:00): Aaron opens the show by sharing initial thoughts on the bracket - why the committee got the No. 1 seeds right, why the bubble was easier to figure out than ever before - and the one big gripe he has with this year's bracket.
South Region (11:00): Aaron opens his region-by-region breakdown with the South, where Alabama is the No. 1 seed and why upsets galore could happen on the top hal fof the bracket. Also, is Baylor susceptible to an upset and should Arizona be happy to be out of the West?
East Region (23:00): Next, he heads East. Purdue is the No. 1 - how early should they be on upset alert? Plus, a nice path for Duke and should Kentucky be worried about Providence?
Midwest Region (29:00): From there, Aaron heads to the Midwest, with the surprising decision to put Houston in as the No. 1 seed. Should Cougar fans be worried about the health of star guard Marcus Sasser? Also, concerns for Indiana and Miami, should Texas A&M be upset with their No. 7 seed, and how about that potential Texas-Texas A&M second round showdown
West Region (38:00): Finally, Aaron heads out West. Is UConn on upset alert against Rick Pitino's Iona Gaels, and do Gonzaga and UCLA have a clear path to a Sweet 16 showdown?
