Bracketology: Week Seven

Bracketology: January 13th

 

Our weekly and eventual Daily Field of 65 continues into Christmas week. 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: This is the last week RPI leaders will be used as projected conference leaders.  (Up until the beginning of conference play, the #1 RPI team in the conference is listed as the projected champ. The purpose is to prevent the bracketology series from merely being my own subjective views about who will eventually make it down the line.)

 

Note on Today's Movement:

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