Bracketology 1/30/12

New bracketology! I updated the 13-16 seeds. Note that Temple is the A-10 representative, as they also have 2 losses in conference, and even though they have 1 less conference win I'm counting them as the top team.  I've decided that putting the teams into a bracket is futile until March.
1 Syracuse, Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina
2 Michigan State, Baylor, Kansas, Ohio State
3 Missouri, UNLV, Murray State, Florida
4 Georgetown, Creighton, Connecticut, Vanderbilt
5 Marquette, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia
6 Saint Mary’s, Temple, Gonzaga, Wisconsin
7 San Diego State, Mississippi State, Louisville, Kansas State
8 Florida State, Purdue, West Virginia, Illinois
9 Harvard, New Mexico, Alabama, Seton Hall
10 Memphis, Southern Miss, California, Wichita State
11 Minnesota, Xavier, Cincinnati, Dayton
12 Texas vs. Stanford, BYU vs. Oklahoma, Saint Louis, Iowa State
13 Belmont, Middle Tennessee, Long Beach State, Iona
14 Davidson, Oral Roberts, Akron, Cleveland State
15 Bucknell, Nevada, UT-Arlington, Geo…

Bracketology 1/22/11

It's been a little over 10 days since my first bracketology, so I figured I'd re-evaluate some teams as well as make changes based on results. If I have time, I'll put up the bracket form in addition to the seed list. But I think I'll opt for some analysis instead today. Seed list first (remember the even lines are read right to left):
1 Syracuse (East), Kentucky (South), Kansas (Midwest), Duke (West)
2 Ohio State, Baylor, North Carolina, Missouri
3 Michigan State, UNLV, Georgetown, Connecticut
4 Vanderbilt, Marquette, Creighton, Murray State

13 Belmont, Middle Tennessee, Iona…

Bracketology 1/16/12

Here's my seed list through Sunday's games (so it's dated 1/16). There are a lot of changes, most notably UNC falling from #1 overall to a 2 seed with a huge loss to Florida State. The Seminoles go from last team in to the 11 line. I changed the small-conference teams in the bracket to represent the current conference leaders. Another new change is the addition of the Next Four Out. 2 things to keep in mind:
1) The seeds in the seed list are the "real seeds". Some teams have their seeds changed for the bracket for bracketing purposes (such as keeping teams from the same conference seperate.)
2) The bracket is read snaking (so odd lines run left to right and even lines run right to left.) 


First up, the seed list.
1 Syracuse, Kentucky, Duke, Baylor
2 Ohio State, Michigan State, North Carolina, Kansas
3 Georgetown, Missouri, Connecticut, Florida
4 UNLV, Kansas State, Indiana, Murray State
5 Gonzaga, Vanderbilt, Illinois, Michigan
6 Marquette, San Diego State, Virginia, M…

Bracketology 1/12/12

Here's my bracket for today. Florida State takes Iowa State's spot in the First Four. Northwestern remains in despite an overtime loss, mainly due to other teams's blunders. And, regions+ first round sites are here today!

4 Gonzaga, Kansas State, Michigan, Connecticut

Bracketology is back!

My bracketology is back! I should be updating my bracket 2-3 times a week (hopefully more.) I'll also be listed in the Bracket Matrix (http://bracketproject.50webs.com/matrix.htm) this year. If I have time tonight, I'll add a full bracket (with 1st+2nd round sites). But for now, here's a seed list. The seed list snakes, meaning that the best team on odd lines is on the left and the best team on even lines is on the right. This means you can read straight down a column to see a 16-team region. If there's a glaring mistake, please notify me in the comments. This bracket is dated 1/11/12 which means it includes Tuesday's games.
