We’re getting down to the end of our bracketology. I know I’ve had a lot of fun putting the time and effort into making these, and hopefully you all have had fun reading and critiquing them.

Because it’s been two weeks since we’ve last put out a bracket it looks quite a bit different. If you look at the pairwise teams have moved both way up and way down. One important thing to remember though is that with a strong run in conference tournaments, virtually any team can get their way into the tournament via the at-large.

This week’s bracket was a mess to figure out. There were quite a few teams that were nearly impossible to figure out where they stand even right now, much less trying to project them a month away (looking at you Vermont and Cornell). But we did our best.

For your new readers, and a refresher for you old ones, our bracket is based off what we think the bracket will look like when it is announced, not how we think it shakes out at this moment. And we also do not base our bracket based on the regionalization issue that has yet to be resolved. Read more…
