Pittsburgh making a push for a No. 1 seed

By Eric Prisbell

Everyone with a computer can piece together a mock bracket these days. I only keep tabs on a handful of bracketologists. So here is a look around the bracket blogosphere today:

As of today, four Big East teams are in line for No. 1 or No. 2 seeds, according to The Bracket Matrix.

Patrick Stevens puts out his first mock bracket of the season, perhaps a few weeks earlier than he should have.

Bracketology 101 matches Virginia Tech against Xavier in a "First Four" game in its latest bracket.

Andy Glockner replaces Duke with Pittsburgh as a No. 1 seed.

This is a bit of a surprise: Joe Lunardi has Maryland on his list of "first four out." Most, including myself, don't have the Terps that close as of today.

And Jerry Palm is the first notable individual to move San Diego State to a No. 1 seed. I will seriously consider doing the same in my bracket Friday, but I'm not sure if I'll make the move just yet.
