Bracketology Update (3-2)

Published on March 2, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   1 Comment

March is finally here and the greatest sporting event is almost  underway. So here is my latest 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. Now that we are not the far away I will be updating my Bracketology every couple days and even daily.  Which teams will lock up bids during championship week and which teams will play themselves out of the touranment.
