NCAA Field Projection – March 13, 2022 2:45pm

Holy cow – results are still coming in which is shuffling up bracket layouts. Yale took down the Princeton Tigers moving Akron up to a 13 seed sliding Yale in as a 14 seed. After scrubbing the teams between the 7-10 seed lines, things are so muddled I can’t make up my mind. That’s the joy I find in doing this though! When updating my bracket, I awarded teams with a higher seed based on the number of wins in quadrant 1 and 2 with the opportunities they had in quad 1 and 2 games this season. That saw San Diego State, Colorado State, and Boise State move up with Ohio State, Alabama, and Murray State falling. Though Murray State did go 2-1 in quad 1 games, the three total games are lacking compared to the other opportunities other schools had. Murray State played 17 quad 4 games, winning all of them.

If Tennessee holds on, I think they sit safely on the 2 line and Texas A&M should be one of the last teams in. I’ve been looking at Iowa and comparing their body of work to Providences. I think Providence still did enough through January that they maintain a higher seed than Iowa leaving Iowa at a 5 seed.

As far as the bubble goes, SMU’s chances are hurting because of their one quad 4 loss. Notre Dame likely won’t make the tournament after being the 2 seed in the ACC tournament. They’re 2-8 in quad 1 games with 17 of their 21 wins coming in quad 3 and 4. Wake Forest doesn’t look safe either with one of the weakest non-conference schedules played, just 1-4 in quad 1 games, 4-4 in quad 1 and 2 games. I believe with Richmond winning, that likely bumped Oklahoma, Indiana, or potentially Texas A&M. My guess is IU with how many quad 3 and 4 games they played this season.

I have a feeling that numerous teams will likely be 2-3 seed lines off from what I’m projecting. There could be one more update prior to the bracket reveal, but for the time being, I’m excited to see how my bracket prediction reflects what the committee’s ends up as!

NCAA Field Projection – March 12, 2022

It’s the Saturday morning before conference championship Sunday where we learn the last few teams guaranteed to make the NCAA tournament this year! A handful of teams are making runs that are worth watching. Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, and Indiana are all making runs in their conference tournaments trying to solidify their chances to be invited into the tournament should they fall short of winning their conference tournaments. Today lays out to be a fantastic day of college basketball. I’ll be scrubbing resumés throughout the day as we begin to get more clarity (or muddled) on today’s game results.

I stumbled onto The Bracket Challonge (that’s how it’s spelled) a few years ago and have had a blast guessing each conference tournament game result.

NCAA Field Projection – March 10, 2022

Good morning basketball fans! I was up early to update and schedule this update. A lot of shuffling from yesterday’s results and I’ve updated my bracket to reflect that change. Get ready for more shifting today and the rest of the week! As of now a handful of teams are playing with fire that currently sit on the bubble. Will Boston College’s run end today and will Butler pull off another upset against Providence? Which team will begin to surprise and make it’s run to the NCAA tournament?
