Daily Bracketology: Friday's Field of 65

    
February 29th, 2008

Another day, another daily Field of 65. (Except no Saturday's since there's little action Friday). This is a field based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." For one-bid leagues, I simply include the conference leader at the time of publishing. In case of ties, I use my projected winner.

 

Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last night's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially.)

 

Note on Friday's Movement: Wins by Louisville & Wisconsin over ranked teams move them up a spot apiece in the 3 pod, dropping UCONN down. Notre Dame doesn't drop despite the loss to L'Ville, and MSU only slides past Drake with their loss. USC's win over Arizona basically locks up a bid for the Trojans, and moves them up to a 7 seed.. and their opponents drop down to an 8. ASU drops to a 12 seed after another loss, allowing Maryland to regain their 11 seed. Also, upon further review.. I switched Kent State & UMASS as well as Illinois State & UAB despite all being idle.
