Now we know who and where the Bearcats will be playing. It is the Longhorns from Texas. The game will take place on Friday in Nashville at the lovely Bridgestone Arena. The other match up at the site is Florida State and St. Bonaventure. The Bearcats will play the winner on Sunday. Looming on the second weekend is a Sweet 16 match up that I know most of you will love with the Ohio State Buckeyes in Boston, presuming that they handle the Gonzaga West Virginia winner on the first weekend.

I am a little surprised that Texas is on the 11 line. Given their resume and a pretty lengthy stretch on the bubble I figured that they were headed for a 12 seed or the First Four at the very worst. I will have a very brief breakdown of the Longhorns in about half an hour. In the mean time what do you think about the Bearcats seed/drawn or really anything else?
