My Latest Bracketology update

Published on December 21, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

 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 second Bracketology of the 2011-12-college basketball season. My last Bracketology.   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 near the new year.

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