Bracketology 08-09: Week Two

    
December 8th, 2008

Bracketology: December 8th

 

This is the second 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 weeks'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! (w/ the exception of Davidson)

 

Note on Today's Movement:

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