Safe to assume whoever drew this image for the NYT likes the Bearcats and hates the Buckeyes.

Five thirty eight has the bearcats at a 53% chance to reach the elite 8. Only Kansas, Villanova and Virginia have better odds.

The more I looked and read about our tourney path the more I really love it. Out of all the 7/10 games, I like our matchup with Nevada or Texas. I didn't want to have to play a Big 12 team in the second game but if we do, I am glad it's Texas for sure. Nevada will be tough but I think we can take them, especially after going against good offenses in WSU and Houston lately.

Looking ahead to the Sweet16 game, out of all the #3 seeds, again, glad we are going against Tennessee. Really happy we didn't get Michigan or MSU. So overall, I like our chances to get to ATL.

Agreed. We don't really have anything to complain about as far as having a bad draw this year. Any loss we have prior to the elite 8 will be on us losing to a weaker team.

Even though some of the metric models like UC's chances I don't see a lot of experts picking us past the sweet 16. Probably because we don't have a go to guy right now. I kind of like us up to the Elite 8. If Evans gets right and we can get some play making out of Cane...I like our chances...but Evans has to be more efficient than he has lately.

On a side note...nobody likes Eggsavier past sweet 16 and some don't even like them getting that far...lol!

Lunardi finished tied for 70th this year on bracketmatrix. Dave Ommen at Bracketville finished in the top 10 again.

I think Xavier's luck runs out this year. And i like us to the elite 8 too, I've seen at least 50% of the expert polls I've looked up say that, think the one on SI I saw last night 5 of the 9 had us going the the elite 8. One guy had us losing to GA state so he doesn't even count lol.
