Daily Bracketology: Thursday's Field of 65

    
March 6th, 2008

Another day, another daily Field of 65. (Except no Saturday's since there's little action Friday). This is a field based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." For one-bid leagues, I simply include the conference leader at the time of publishing. In case of ties, I use my projected winner.

 

Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last night's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially.)

 

Note on Thursday's Movement: Like yesterday, there's little movement on today's board. Baylor drops down to a 9 after losing to TAMU, allowing Miami (who beat BC) to jump into the 8 pod. Florida falls to the 2nd to last team in the field after a close call with Tennessee. UNM replaced the Gators as a 12 seed. Also, Kentucky replaces St. Joseph's as the 4th team out. Also, yesterday evening I added the Early Bird Prediction #2.. predicted tourney results based on yesterday's bracketology.
