NCAA tournament 2011: Updated 68-team tournament field

By Eric Prisbell

Two notes: If you are running an office pool or a pool for friends -- or know someone who is -- and there is confusion about how to deal with the additional play-in games this season, I encourage you to send me an e-mail at prisbelle@washpost.com. I'd like to hear from you.

Also, I will be joining Tracee Hamilton for an online chat Thursday at 11 a.m. I encourage you to ask tons of questions about teams, seeds, bracketology, picks, etc. Thanks a lot.

Michigan State does not deserve a bid.

Really! Michigan St. a 10-seed?

What? Is Izzo on the selection committee? Otherwise, quit bogarting the pipe, dude!

Maryland - Michigan St. sounds like a real good NIT match-up.
