NCAA Tournament Bracket 2011: Printable Sweet 16 Bracket For March Madness

The fine folks here at SB Nation continue producing updated printable brackets for the 2011 NCAA Tournament. As of 3am pacific, 6am eastern they will have a 2011 NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 printable bracket for your viewing pleasure. This could be particularly useful if you are getting involved in any second chance brackets. While paying an entry fee for a bracket pool is frowned upon at this establishment, you might have cause to put together a new bracket this week.

The first week of the NCAA tournament was filled with some sizable upsets, leaving brackets fairly scrambled. Some people have even changed their Facebook profile page to now feature a picture of them burning their bracket. Ahhh modern social media. Whatever the case, I'd imagine most folks went through enough stomach churning and paper-crinkling that their original paper bracket is worthy of the trash at this point. So you might as well print out a Sweet 16 bracket.

The layout of the field of Sweet 16 teams is fairly remarkable. After getting eleven teams into the NCAA tournament field of 68, the Big East finds itself down to just UConn and Marquette. On the other hand, the Mountain West Conference got three teams into the field and advanced two into the second weekend for the first time in conference history. The CAA (VCU) and Horizon League (Butler) have as many teams representing them as do the Pac-10 (Arizona) and Big 12 (Kansas).

This final sixteen group of teams includes a mix of Cinderellas and Goliaths. A favorite still may cut down the nets in two weeks, but given how the last few days have gone, it's no guarantee.
