Big Ten Bracketology 2011: Chris Dobberteam Updates Again

It's Selection Sunday morning, and Chris Dobberteam of SB Nation has put out his most recent bracket projection. After Penn State's victory in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals, he now has seven Big Ten teams in the NCAA Tournament field. Here's where those seven teams are all seeded, according to his projections.

Ohio State Buckeyes - #1 seed in the East bracket
Purdue Boilermakers - #4 seed in the Southwest bracket
Wisconsin Badgers - #4 seed in the Southeast bracket
Michigan Wolverines - #10 seed in the West bracket
Illinois Fighting Illini - #11 seed in the Southwest bracket
Penn State Nittany Lions - #11 seed in the East bracket
Michigan State Spartans - #11 seed in the Southeast bracket

No play-in games for any of these teams. . .all of them are firmly set in the field of 68. Penn State would certainly improve their standing today if they could pull an upset of the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Big Ten Tournament title game, but that's a pretty tall order, even for a team on the kind of roll the Nittany Lions are on.

We'll have a few more updates before the brackets are announced at 5 PM Central time.
