Bracketology: February 6th

 

While I'm not quite ready for the Daily Field of 65, expect updates every 2-3 days for the next 2 weeks. 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.)

 

Why should you care what I have to say? Did you know, last year I was considered to have one of the Top 2 or 3 brackets (depending on the scoring rubric) amongst 53 national experts including Joe Lunardi, Gary Parrish and the like).

 

Movement:

Last update was February 3rd. Arrows indicate movement by seed. Two arrows equals a change of two seeds, etc.. Only a handful of games featuring potential Tourney teams tonight, so no major movement.
