Bracketology 08-09: Week Three

    
December 15th, 2008

 

 

Bracketology: December 15th

 

This is the third installment of what will start as a weekly and eventually Daily Field of 65. The Bracketology field is based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last week's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially though.)

 

Important: Up until the beginning of conference play, the #1 RPI team in the conference is listed as the projected champ!

 

Note on Today's Movement:

Arrows indicate movement by seed. Two arrows equals a change of two seeds, etc..
