My first Bracketology of the 2011-12 College Basketball Season

Published on November 14, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   1 Comment

Before you know it March will be here, and the greatest sporting event will be underway.  So it’s never too early to release my first Bracketology of the 2011-12-college basketball season.  Remember there are 68 teams not 64.  31 teams receive automatic bids for winning their league.  Then there are 37 at large selections. So who did I predict to make the field of 68 find out below.  I will update my bracketology frequently during the season. Look for the next update in early December.

Note : Of the 4 numbers 1 seeds North Carolina is first overall followed by Kentucky, Ohio State, and UConn.  North Carolina and UConn will be on the same side of the bracket as will Kentucky and Ohio State.
