Bracketology 2/22/09

Here's my new bracket based on all games through the Michigan/Iowa game. I had to wait for that game to end, because I had Michigan in if they won, but out if they lost. Obviously, Michigan lost so they are now out of my bracket. I had Cincinnati out, but they move back in by default. Texas A&M rejoins my bracket, based on improving their conference record; they had enough credentials before except for being 4-7 in conference.

The bracket assumes Duke beats Wake Forest at home, if Wake wins they switch places.

Auto bids are in CAPS. Winner of the East Region will play the winner of the South Region. The winner of the Midwest region will play the winner of the West Region.
