Daily Bracketology: Wednesday

    
March 12th, 2008

Another day, another daily Field of 65. 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 Wednesday's Movement: Can't remember the last time this happened, but nothing changes today.. just some new conference champions (Butler, Oral Roberts, Western Kentucky) that are now in bold font. (I kept yesterday's arrows just to show the most recent movement.)

 

Since there's little new today, I suggest taking a look at the Early Bird Prediction: #3.. a predicted tourney based on today's bracketology (there's a UNC-UCLA final). Also, I put a mini Reader Mailbag: Bracketology Edition last night based on some fan questions about the ole bracketology. If you have any questions you want answered, feel free to ask.
