First 4 Out: St. Mary's, Michigan, Vanderbilt, Syracuse


Thoughts:

  • Michigan State gets the final 1 seed over UNC if they win the Big X title game... UVA is the one that should fall out but they have the best resume of the other contenders including wins over Villanova and North Carolina

- Going to go full line-by-line tomorrow before selection show, only got through 5 lines team-by-team, rest a rough look using resumes

Year 8, The First Bracket

Its amazing that this is my 8th year doing Bracketology as part of the Bracket Matrix, I enjoy it every year and this year I hope to get back into more regular updates (The lack of updates I'm sure led to my down year last year), as life as calmed down a bit.

For those of you who don't know, Bracketology is simply the science of picking the seeds of the NCAA Men's tournament based on their resumes (think CFP but for 68 teams).
