Bracket update 03/04/17

Probably my last update until Selection Sunday, but possibly will do an update in the middle of the week. Still a lot that could change depending on how the conference tournaments shake out!



Bracketology 02/20/2017

Welcome to Bracks on Bracks! I’ve been doing a few brackets a year for about six or seven years now, but I’ve finally gotten around to actually sharing them online. To see how my bracket stacks up to those of others, check out The Bracket Project’s Bracket Matrix. I will hopefully be able to update this page weekly up until Selection Sunday. There will be an overall seed list available, as well as how the bracket might look per the NCAA Selection Committee’s guidelines.


Here’s what the bracket would look like with teams seeded and placed in regions:
