My Latest Bracketology update

Published on January 30, 2012 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 fifth 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 in about two weeks.

RoundballChat is proud to be a part of The Bracket Project’s Matrix Index!

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