Lobofan2003 Bracket 2/20/11-Bracket as of 4PM

Here is my latest bracket with the result of today's early afternoon games taken into account:

I discovered while I was swapping teams around that I had left Butler out of the bracket by accident, but they are in the bracket as an 11 seed. I think I had told some of you that regularly discuss bracketology that I had Gonzaga in as one of the Final Four, but they are knocked out to make room for Butler.

Winner of the East Region will play the winner of the West Region; winner of the Southwest Region will play the winner of the Southeast Region.

Bracketology 2/19/09

Here's what I think the bracket would look like if the Tournament where to begin PRIOR to tonight's games.

A lot of the bubble teams have lost, but nobody has had any really impressive wins to take their place. The only team that has fallen out since Sunday is Virginia Tech after their loss at Virginia. Penn St. takes their place, despite scoring just 38 points against Illinois (they still won).

Bracketology 1/23/09

The following is a bracket based on games through Thursday 1/22. This is not like Palm's bracket, it is not a projection of who/will not be in the tournament but rather what I think the bracket would look like if the season ended today.
