TSB’s Bracketology: Projecting the 2011 NCAA Tournament (1/14/11)

Share

2011 final four

I am a huge college basketball nerd.  I know it and if you are a frequent visitor to the Sports Bank, you know it as well.  So much in fact, that I create my own bracketology which is seventy times nerdier than making a NBA mock draft.

In my inaugural year of entering this hallowed ground of geeks, my bracketology more than held its own ESPN’s “expert” bracketologist Joe Lunardi; a feat that I consider to be a huge accomplishment.

This year, there is more to take into account with the NCAA expanding the field to 68 teams.  That means there will now be four play-in games held in Dayton.  Two of those games will feature the final four at-large bids battling to be in the Field of 64.  Same will go for the last four automatic qualifiers.  Be sure to check back every week for updates on my Field of 68.
