Daily Bracketology: Monday's Field of 65

    
February 11th, 2008

Daily Bracketology

 

I'm going to be projecting the Tournament field on a close to daily basis for the rest of the year (and no Saturday's since there's little action Friday). This is a field based on how the tourney looks as of this moment. Note that for one-bid leagues, I simply include the conference leader at the time of publishing. In case of ties, I use my projected winner.

 

Arrows indicate team that moved up or down based on last night's performance.

 

Note on Monday's Movement: Despite a lot of upsets and wild games yesterday, there were actually not that many big changes in today's field. Tennessee moves up to a 1 seed due to UCLA's loss, where some suggest they should have been anyways due to their gaudy RPI. Clemson remains a 7 seed despite the loss to UNC, while Arizona dropped from a 7 down to the 1st 8 seed. No doubt others will have Arizona slightly higher due to their high RPI. In the A10, UMASS & Saint Joseph's both lost close games, but still manage to hang in the field. UMASS though drops to the last team in, while Arizona State moves into the first team out position after beating Arizona.
