Bracketology – March 15, 2015 – FINAL EDITION

Here is our final bracket before the bracket is revealed in about an hour. I’d like to personally (sarcastically) thank the Big Ten and American conferences for both holding their tournament finals far too late in the day. It sure does make trying to complete the final bracket before the Selection Show starts quite difficult. But nonetheless, the final bracket is below!

Below is the link to the bracket, as well as the usual seed list, bubble teams, and conference breakdown.

Bracketology – March 15, 2015 – Early Morning Edition

Here’s our new bracket following Championship Saturday, which was just a superb day of games.

If you read our post from Saturday morning, you’ll notice a big change on that 1-seed line. Despite my writeup in that post, I’ve switched Duke with Virginia and made the Blue Devils the final 1 seed. I still am very unsure about this, and it’s entirely possible I could switch back to Virginia tomorrow. It’s that close between the two teams. I moved Duke up to a 1-seed based on their big wins, specifically their road wins. I think those wins will be overwhelmingly impressive to the committee. Or I’ll completely change my mind again on a night of sleep and think Virginia should be the final 1. We’ll see!

Here’s the bracket. Below is the link to the bracket, as well as the usual seed list, bubble teams, and conference breakdown.
