Bracketology - Cardinal will have to hit the road

Charlie Creme (espnW) has updated his bracket with comments about how conference play changes everything.

His report includes this disappointing information, "Stanford will not be able to host first- and second-round games. The Pac-12 gymnastics championships will be rolling into Maples Pavilion on March 18, so the Cardinal were unable to bid on NCAA tournament basketball games."

He now has seven Pac-12 teams in the bracket:

Bridgeport Region
2 Washington (up from 4)
8 California (down from 5)
Oklahoma City Region
3 Stanford (no change)
4 Arizona State (up from 5)
Lexington Region
3 UCLA (down from 2)
9 Oregon (moved back in)
Stockton Region
3 Oregon State (up from 4)
Utah (was 8) and USC (was 10) have been moved out.
