Bracketology: March 13: 9 PM

    
March 13th, 2009

The Bracketology field is based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." Arrows indicate the amount of seeds a team moved since the last update. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially though.)

 

Why should you care what I have to say? Did you know, last year I was considered to have one of the Top 2 or 3 brackets (depending on the scoring rubric) amongst 53 national experts including Joe Lunardi, Gary Parrish and the like).

 

Movement:

Previous update was March 12th. Arrows indicate movement by seed. Two arrows equals a change of two seeds, etc..

 

New Mexico falls out of the field after losing to Wyoming, allowing Creighton to come back in temporarily. Syracuse moves up to a #4 seed, not so much because of their big win last night, but because of Clemson's early exit in the ACC Tournament. Ohio State and Oklahoma St swap spots with Wisconsin & California in the 8-9 region.

 

Update as of 3/13, 9:00 PM. Next update will be tomorrow morning following all of tonight's action and the updated RPI. Apologies for the lack of update this morning, the site was bombarded with traffic to our cheerleaderology article, and I had to focus on the server end of things..
