The Field of 65 (TSB.net’s Bracketology) 12-11

2010 Final Four Logo

By: David Kay

Figuring out the NCAA Tournament field is like putting together a massive jigsaw puzzle.  You have 65 pieces that can mix and match in different spots, but when they all fit together throughout the brackets the final result is a beautiful thing.  Unlike a normal jigsaw puzzle though, there is no perfect way to match all the shapes and corners.  Welcome to the dilemma the Selection Committee faces on a yearly basis.

Every Friday during the college basketball season, I try my best to fit all the edges together to form my very own version of Bracketology called, “The Field of 65.”  Check out the latest version.
