Bracket projection: Florida State
Suffocating man-to-man defense could make the Seminoles a tough out

How else to characterize a team that beats North Carolina and Duke, but loses to two Ivy League teams? I'm going to split the difference and put FSU in the Sweet 16, before Ohio State knocks hte Noles out.
