Bracketology: Texas & Seton Hall Back In

    
February 14th, 2012
Collegehoops.net's Bracketology projections have consistently proven to be the best in the business. Over the last 4 years, Shawn Siegel is the #1 ranked Bracketologist according to the Bracket Project. This ranking includes the likes of Joe Lunardi, Gary Parrish, Jerry Palm, and Andy Glockner.. none of whom come close. 

 

As always, the field below is a prediction of what the committee would do as things stand today, not what they should do. This is done by taking into account standings, polls, computer rankings, and the committee's historical biases.

Notes:

Arrows indicate how many seeds a team has moved up or down since the previous update. Teams in Green are new to the field today. Teams in CAPS have locked up a bid. **=Projected Conference Champs

 

 

Note: Shawn Siegel will be in Indianapolis later this week for the NCAA's annual Mock Selection Committee.  

 

If you have questions about the selection process, please leave a note @collegehoopsnet and he'll try and answer them throughout the conference.
