Taking our current Projected 2008 NCAA Tournament field (March 12th), I've predicted the results of this mythical bracket. The teams are filled in using a straight snake method, meaning that some of the opening matches might not be feasible using the real process (ie, conference vs conference games). Note that the Final Four here is not my actual Top 4 teams.. but I had to predict what the bracket gave me. Finally, its important to note the point of this exercise is less about the actual predicted winners.. but more about beginning to salivate over potential Tourney matchups.
