Here’s our updated bracket following this weekend’s games. I’m going to try to have a post up later today or tomorrow on the structure of the bracket right now, focusing on how imbalanced the bracket will be if Gonzaga is the 1-seed in the West, with Arizona being the 2-seed.
Below is the link to our bracket, as well as the usual seed list, bubble teams, and conference breakdown.
It’s time for this week’s Monday edition of Bracketology. It was an interesting weekend for bracketologists over the past couple of days. Right now, it’s so very muddled between the seed lines of 9 through 12 for at-large berths. A lot of teams are not taking care of business, like Minnesota, Arizona State, and Tennessee. And a lot of teams are fighting like hell to get into the field, like Nebraska, Georgetown, and Dayton. So essentially, it’s almost March as usual. I hope you’re all ready for it. No more ranting here, that’ll be left for this week’s Stock Up/Stock Down Report. Make sure to check it out.
Onto the bracket. Click the link below for the PDF bracket.
