Selection Sunday 2013 is behind us, and brackets are being filled out by hoops fans world wide. The Louisville Cardinals, Indiana Hoosiers, Kansas Jayhawks, and Gonzaga Bulldogs are the four number one seeds in the tournament.

Several teams, even conference winners, were given incredibly low seeds. The first that comes to mind is The Oregon Ducks, who are slotted as the 12 seed in the Midwest Region.

On today’s show, John brings in bigredlouie.com editor Cam Newton to talk about Louisville’s number one overall seed, how stacked the deck is in the Midwest Region, and The Cardinals chances of winning it all.

John Also examines the brackets, and gives his take on what games should be blockbusters in the second round, and which teams are dark horses to make it to the Final Four.
