Christmas is fast approaching, so it's time for the bracket to decide which teams have been naughty or nice.
Wyoming - The undefeated (10-0) Cowboys enter the field this week as an 11-seed after picking up decent wins vs #19 Colorado and a solid Illinois St team.
The BIG 10 - The top basketball conference in the land currently has seven bids. Indiana and Michigan hold down 1-seeds, Minnesota looks as good as anyone, and Illinois is shooting up the board after going on the road and beating #9 Gonzaga at The Kennel.
Ole Miss - "THEY JUST LOST TO MTSU!!" It's never good to lose to a Sun Belt team, but the Blue Raiders are a tournament team and Ole Miss has a lot of weapons this year. They'll bounce back and for now I'll put them in the field.
Kentucky - These 'Cats are growing up the hard way. Their three loses are more than they had all of last season.
UCLA - I know they probably don't deserve to be in the bracket, but I feel like all that young talent will start clicking at some point. It just needs to come around sooner than later.
Tennessee - "HURRY BACK, MAYMON!" is becoming the battle cry in Knoxville, but their problems look much deeper than just missing their big man. In their three loses they have scored 45, 36, and 38 points. Yikes.
