Bracketology 2/16/19

I went through and re-evaluated all the resumes this evening so there's some shakeups throughout the bracket reflecting that. Virginia Tech, North Carolina State and VCU were among the teams that dropped from this, while Maryland, Mississippi State and Texas were among the teams that rose. On the bubble, Nebraska ended their skid and moved back into the field, and Lipscomb lost to Liberty. I think the Bisons are probably fine if they win out to the A-Sun championship game- given the cluster of likely 14 and 15 loss power conference teams at the bubble. Buffalo at Toledo is the headliner tomorrow night- the Rockets are a solid team and this is an opportunity for a 2nd Q1 win for the Bulls.

  1. How in heavens name can you put in a Texas team, that when you look at their schedule will probably be 17-16 after the Big 12 tournament. If they get there at all its got to be a play-in situation at best.
