Quick post incoming. Here is today’s bracket heading into this weekend’s games. I’m going to have a write-up later today on a couple things that I noticed while building this bracket, as well as some interesting tidbits if this was actually the bracket on Selection Sunday. I will also preview a handful of the biggest games this weekend that will have a major impact on the next bracket release.
For now, here are the links to today’s bracket, as well as the usual seed list, bubble teams, and conference breakdown. (more…)
Here’s the updated bracket for January 27th following this weekend’s slate of games. Let’s take a quick look at some stock up/stock down since last Monday before the bracket is revealed.
Michigan – The Wolverines had themselves another week. Wow. They beat Iowa at home on Wednesday and then went into East Lansing on Saturday night in primetime to hand Michigan State their first Big Ten loss of the season. I know Branden Dawson and Adreian Payne were both out for Sparty, but that’s still a huge road win for Michigan to put them atop the Big Ten all alone. They climb up to a 3-seed this week.
Creighton – The Bluejays climb from a 6-seed up to the 4-line in this week’s bracket after their wildly impressive win last Monday at Villanova followed up by a solid home win against Georgetown. The computers love Creighton, so a 4-seed might actually end up being a bit low for them.
Wichita State – I no longer see a reasonable reason for keeping the Shockers off of the 1-line. (more…)
Here’s the updated projected seed list for The Nickel Dimer heading into Saturday’s game. I think this will be the format we use from here on out. We’ll release an actual projected bracket on Sunday night or Monday morning. Then, on Friday or Saturday morning, we’ll post the current seed list without actually placing the teams in the bracket (since that’s the time-consuming part).
Alright, here’s the projected seed lines. Look below for Last 4 In, First 4 Out, and list of multi-bids conferences.
