Like many in this region, Mike Gundy’s strong connection to the Big 12 had a direct effect on his now muddy bracket.

Oklahoma State’s football coach had his alma mater in the Sweet 16, his Bedlam rival winning a game and Kansas State going to the Final Four. Well, get the sharpie out, Coach, because all three lost in their NCAA openers.

And now, in the bracket challenge revealed in this Yahoo! Sports blog post, Gundy (19 points) sits in third place out of three participating college football coaches, trailing Louisiana Tech’s Skip Holtz (24 points) and LSU’s Les Miles (22 points).

Here’s a complete look at Gundy’s bracket.

And a couple thoughts:

-Kansas State to the Final Four wasn’t even Gundy’s most painful miss of the first round. The coach took Georgetown to get to the title game. But, like has become common this time of year in Hoya land, they were upset early on, this time by 15-seed Florida Gulf Coast.

-Gundy had K-State playing Iowa State in the Elite Eight. Big 12, baby.

-Looks like he had more confidence in the Wildcats and Cyclones than his Pokes. Or maybe he’s just that confident in Louisville, who he had taking down OSU in the Sweet 16 en route to the title.

-Gundy is either a Duke hater or captain of the Doug McDermott Fan Club. Because he has Creighton taking down Coach K’s crew in the Round of 32. Probably his biggest upset pick.

-Things continue to look bleak for Gundy moving forward. He had VCU over Michigan. That game just ended = Michigan 78, VCU 53.
