Bracketology: Four New Bids

    
November 29th, 2011
Collegehoops.net's Bracketology projections have consistently proven to be the best in the business. Over the last 4 years, I'm the #1 ranked Bracketologist according to the Bracket Project. This ranking includes the likes of Joe Lunardi, Gary Parrish, Jerry Palm, and Andy Glockner.. none of whom come close. 

 

As always, the field below is not who I think deserves to be in, but simply a prediction of what the committee would do as things stand today. Again, this is not a question of what they should do, but what they will do.

 

Notes:

Arrows indicate how many seeds a team has moved up or down since the previous update. Teams in Green are new to the field today. Teams in CAPS have locked up a bid. **=Projected Conference Champs
