Published on February 10, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

 March is getting closer and closer and before you know it the greatest sporting event will be underway.  So it’s never too early to release my sixthBracketology 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. Now that we are not the far away I will be updating my Bracketology weekly.
