Bracketology 2012: West Virginia Drops To No. 12 Seed, Seton Hall Falls Out Of Tournament

The guys over at SB Nation have come out with Thursday's version of their 2012 Bracketology, and West Virginia has moved down to the bottom fringe of at large bids. A loss to UConn on Wednesday afternoon has caused them to drop down to spots, from a No. 10 seed down to a No. 12 seed.

That may not sound good, but a No. 12 might be a little bit easier to manage. We all know that there is always at least one 5-12 upset, and if they do get through, they'd have a better matchup in the second round.

Another change is that Seton Hall has fallen out of the tournament following their loss to Louisville in the Big East Tournament on Wednesday. They have been replaced as an at large team by the University of Texas.
