Final Bracketology: 2008 NCAA Tournament Projection

March 16th, 2008

This is the final Daily Bracketology edition of the year.. with less than an hour remaining before the Selection Show. It takes into account every game of the season.. and updates this morning's version.

 

Daily Bracketology: Selection Sunday Early Morning

March 15th, 2008
Things simply got wild on Saturday.. Illinois and Georgia in their respective conference title games? Seriously? Triple-OT in the WAC title game. Temple locking up a bid. Pittsburgh soaring up the field after beating Georgetown to win the Big East tournament. Tennessee's #1 seed in jeopardy after losing to Arkansas. And that's just the start of it.

 

Saturday Night Fever: Conference Tournament Update

Temple

Some thoughts on an exciting Championship Week Saturday.. with an eye on the Big Dance:

- Tulsa learned in a big way this morning that Memphis owns the CUSA. Having won 10 of 13 games, and with 20 overall, the Golden Hurricanes are hoping they've done enough to impress the NIT selection committee. Regardless, the emergence of 7-0 big man Jerome Jordan is a great sign for the future.

Daily Bracketology: One Day to Go!

March 15th, 2008

Note on Saturday's Movement: The bubble is still highly unclear this morning (that makes it fun..), though Saint Joseph's obviously helped themselves tremendously by beating Xavier. What would be interesting though is if Temple beats them today.. whether the committee would take 3 A10 teams. I moved Oregon into the last spot in the field, replacing Ohio State who lost a well-fought game to Michigan State. The reality though is that any team below a 10 seed should be terribly insecure heading into Sunday evening.

Friday Night Championship Week & Bracketology Update

A Friday night update on all things Championship Week with an eye on the bracket..

- Miami, the Ohio version, almost caused havoc by knocking Kent State out of the MAC tournament. But the Golden Flashes managed to pull of a 49-47 win, ensuring that at least for another day the MAC is a one bid league.

Daily Bracketology Friday: Bubble Disaster

March 14th, 2008

Another day, another daily Field of 65. This is a field based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last night's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially.)

 

Thursday's Mid-day Championship Week Update

A little mid-afternoon update on a busy Championship Week Thursday.

Daily Bracketology: Villanova Moves Into the Field

March 13th, 2008

Another day, another daily Field of 65. This is a field based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last night's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially.)

 

Bracketology: Reader Mailbag

Bubble time is not only a fun time, but its a testy time.. after all, everybody wants their favorite team to make the Big Dance.  Thus the amount of emails I gets grew substantially since this year's Daily Bracketology started. In honor of some of the better, and more repeated emails, here are some reader questions and responses (edited slightly to fit into an article)..
