2012 NCAA March Madness: Printable Bracket Update

It's been a wild tournament thus far, with some history being made in the process.

Never before had more than one No. 2 seed lost in their first game. Well, that all changed with the Missouri Tigers losing to the Norfolk State Spartans and the Duke Blue Devils being stunned by C.J. McCollum and the Lehigh Mountain Hawks.

The Sweet 16 looks like it has some incredible match-ups going forward, like the re-match of Indiana and Kentucky. Don't sleep on the Syracuse-Wisconsin game either, that could be an epic with two contrasting styles.

Since you're bracket is probably destroyed like mine, it's time to hide that piece of shame for eternity and print off a new one.

The 2012 Printable NCAA Tournament Bracket is updated and available right here.

Now you can try again and hopefully most of the big upsets are out of the way so we can all look just a little bit smarter.

NCAA Tournament 2012 Bracket Update: Seton Hall Left Out Of Field Of 68, Waits On NIT Bid

The Seton Hall Pirates failed to have their name called Sunday during CBS' Selection Show, and will not be one of the 68 teams in the 2012 NCAA Tournament field. The Pirates finished their season 21-13 and failed to advance past the quarterfinal round of the Big East Conference Tournament last week.

Surprisingly for those who thought Seton Hall was right on the cusp of making the cut-line the Pirates weren't even one of the final four teams out. Those were Oral Roberts Golden Eagles, Nevada Wolf Pack, Miami Hurricanes and Drexel Dragons.

"Seton Hall had a very solid year," said Jeff Hathaway, this year's tournament chairman. "They had a tough stretch at the end of the year. They went 5-10 towards the end of the season. At the end of the day, quality team, a team we have a lot of respect for but we lose some quality teams we're not going to be able to be a part of the other 37 (at-large bids)."

The Pirates will now await for the announcement of the 2012 NIT field, which will feature 32 schools that didn't make the NCAA Tournament.

Seton Hall Basketball: Pirates Exit From Big East Tournament; Unsure Of NCAA Fate

There's nothing worse than leaving your NCAA Tournament fate in the hands of others, and that's just what the Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball program did Wednesday when they lost to the Louisville Cardinals, 61-55, in the second round of the Big East Conference Tournament at Madison Square Garden.

The loss was the Pirates (20-12, 8-10 Big East) fourth in six games, and made them 5-10 since starting the season 15-2. The question now, in regards to Seton Hall's NCAA Tournament fate, is whether or not its previous body of work before the late-season skid was enough to merit a March Madness berth.

"I think we did enough to get in [the Tournament], but it's up to the selection committee on Sunday," said senior point guard Jordan Theodore after the loss to Louisville.

As of 10:48 p.m. ET on Wednesday night, ESPN.com's Joe Lunardi said Seton Hall was not in the field of 68 teams, however, that could change with a losses from other bubble teams -- USF, Northwestern, Xavier, Texas, Tennessee -- that still need to play in their conference tournament's.

So, if you're a Pirates fan, basically, all you can do now is sit, wait, watch and hope that another bubble squad losses, and badly.
