Bracketology 2011: Missouri Holds Steady After Loss Vs. Texas A&M

This week's ESPN Bracketology update shows that at least one bracketologist, the dean Joe Lunardi, didn't think Missouri would take out Texas A&M anyway. Missouri holds steady in the latest Bracketology 101 session, moving to the Chicago regional but taking an eighth seed again, this time against ninth-seed Washington. Missouri State remains near the top of the list of teams on the bubble, while Indiana State's spot in their first NCAA Tournament in 10 years seems locked in, according to Lunardi—they're still pegged to take on San Diego State in the 3-14 matchup. 

Texas A&M does move up after their victory—they take over a fifth seed in Tucson, where Lunardi has them playing Clemson. Their loss to the Texas Longhorns—a second seed at the moment—is unlikely to effect their tournament standing, unless the selection committee proves to be especially cruel. 

For Missouri State fans, who once again see their team one upset away from a tournament berth, Selection Sunday has to seem like a long way away.
