NIT-Ology: Best of the Rest, Friday

    
March 11th, 2011
The latest 2011 NIT Bracketology field as things stand after Thursday's action. The field below is not who I think deserves to be in, but simply a prediction of what the committee would do as things stand today. NIT-Ology is released following the latest NCAA Tournament Bracketology update.

 

Why should you care what I have to say? In 2007, 2008 & 2010, my NCAA Tournament projections ranked in the Top 3 amongst 50+ national experts including Joe Lunardi, Gary Parrish and the like. Over the last 3 years, I've ranked 3rd overall amongst bracketologists according to the Bracket Project
