Quick Tournament Do's and Don'ts

The brackets will be released very soon, three hours or so from now, so this will have to be short. But here are a couple of simple things I am hoping for to happen, and a couple of things I am praying don't happen. Teams I want to play, some I don't, the bracket I don't want to be in, etc.

To start it out, using Joe Lunardi's latest bracketology, I will go through each seed and pick the team I would prefer to play, and the team I want no part of. Of course, around this time of year I really don't want to play anybody that has a pulse, while on the other hand I would be supremely confident against just about every team in the country, save maybe UCLA. So, this is by no means giving games away if we matchup, just teams I wold rather not play.

#1 Seed :: Want to Play = Memphis :: Don't Want to Play = UCLA
#2 Seed :: Want to Play = Georgetown :: Don't Want to Play = Texas
#3 Seed :: Want to Play = Duke :: Don't Want to Play = Stanford
#4 Seed :: Want to Play = Drake :: Don't Want to Play = Connecticut
#5 Seed :: Want to Play = Indiana :: Don't Want to Play = Clemson or Vanderbilt
#6 Seed :: Want to Play = Texas A&M :: Don't Want to Play = Purdue
#7 Seed :: Want to Play = Washington State :: Don't Want to Play = USC
#8 Seed :: Want to Play = UNLV :: Don't Want to Play = BYU
#9 Seed :: Want to Play = Davidson :: Don't Want to Play = Kent State
#10 Seed :: Want to Play = Kentucky :: Don't Want to Play = Saint Mary's or South Alabama
#11 Seed :: Want to Play = Temple :: Don't Want to Play = Baylor
#12 Seed :: Want to Play = Western Kentucky :: Don't Want to Play = Saint Joseph's
#13 Seed :: Want to Play = Oral Roberts :: Don't Want to Play = Cornell
#14 Seed :: Want to Play = Cal State Fullerton :: Don't Want to Play = San Diego
#15 Seed :: Want to Play = Belmont :: Don't Want to Play = Portland State
#16 Seed :: Want to Play = Coppin State/Mississippi Valley State :: Don't Want to Play = American

Much more analysis to come once the brackets actually come out, and I will be doing a mini-Live Thread for the announcement.
